Migrants were on the move last night, both Cuba and the Bahamas sent us a nice care package. Lots of birds made it into the area early and thus continuing on with their journey. A second wave of birds were visible on the radar during the couple of frames on the animations. Birds may be hitting migrant traps late in the morning, the Cape, Barnes, Matheson and Enchanted Forest look like they should have birds coming in. Further up the coast the first wave of migrants seems to have made into the West Palm area, Green Cay, and Wako should see new faces around today. EVA? The space coast also looks like it may have been hit by migrants, birds could be seen making their way up the coast and into the area. Jacksonville was like a gateway for birds flying north along the coast into Georgia. Most of the activity on the radars was down in the south today, hopefully we get some birds around today. Good birding and enjoy the weekend.

All sightings posted to Badbirdz2 are greatly appreciated!

  1. Well we went from zero migrants to having a few American Redstarts and one Black-and-white at Green Cay this weekend. It’s not really much but it was something.

    I’ll be in Maine this coming weekend, I have a feeling migration will be perfect there.
