Front Passing Through

This is the radar from 7:00pm last night to 7:30am this morning.

Frames are every 1/2 hour. Click on the thumbnail to view the full-sized animation.

Last night a front came in as all of you can feel, temperatures dropped by 27 degrees over the night. Yesterday we scored a high of 92 degrees and today it is a sweet 65 degrees. Winds were favorable for migration but the passing front seem to keep birds grounded. Some brave souls left Cuba last night but the pulses are very weak, besides that it was pretty quiet all night. Up north the same story played out, we did not see anything significant on the radar. Well we wait until another day, have a good day and enjoy the nice weather. Good birding to all.

  1. Barnes seemed to have same assortment of migrants this morning 0815-0855…B&W, Redstart, Ovenbird, Magnolia, Palm, Parula, lots of Prairies, 2 BT Greens (presumably the wintering ones) and singing Blue-headed Vireo. Brian was checking further and may have more…

  2. I saw nothing else of interest at Barnes, so I headed to Bill Baggs. Large numbers of Prairie Warblers (easily 100+), but small numbers (1-3) of other migrants and/or winter visitors, which included:
    Blue-winged Teal
    Northern Harrier
    Peregrine Falcon
    Ruby-throated Hummingbird
    Blue-headed Vireo
    Tree Swallow
    House Wren
    Northern Parula
    Cape May Warbler
    Palm Warbler
    Black-and-white Warbler
    American Redstart
    Northern Waterthrush
