Migrants On The Move

This is the radar from 7:00pm last night to 9:00am this morning.

Sorry but only have limited time to post an intrepreatation of the today’s radar images but birds are definitely on the move south. Most interesting was the concentration of birds between the Georgia and Florida border. The JAX radar picked up lots of movement last night. For us in the south some light movement was evident, inland locations seem to look best today. Some interesting movement visible clearly on the Key West radar is the movement of what appears to be shorebirds moving from the Lake Ingraham shores to the lower Keys. Migration is heating up; have a great time birding out there.
