Migrants on the move tonight

We just peeked at the radar and WOW, birds are on the move. There is far more activity over the central flyway but the eastern flyway is looking great too. By far the most activity seen on the radar this fall.

  1. I had my first of Fall Blue-gray Gnatcatcher when I went out to pick up the newspaper at 7:00 AM this morning. A walk through the Mangrove Bay Neighborhood late in the morning produced a few more migrants, but I found more birds later in a thick stand of Mangrove Swamp behind my neighbor’s house. I heard and saw a Waterthrush there, but not well enough to ID it for certain.
