Last night the trend continued, stormy weather caused birds from the Bahamas and Cuba to wait for another day. For the last week we have not had any favorable winds or weather conditions for migrants to take to the wing. They must be all piled up on the coast by now, if this is correct the next night that has favorable migration weather these birds are going to fly north. Further up the state migration is going on, St Pete. once again seems to be the place to be. A group of birds could be seen flying from the east coast to the St. Pete area. It would be interesting to hear from the west coast birders out there. Any one birding Ft. Desoto? Good Birding everyone and have a great day.

All sightings will be greatly appreciated, please visit Badbirdz2 again.
