Due to radar issues we were only able to animate the SE radar until 1:30am this morning…
Last night the night skies were full of migrants passing overhead. With all radars showing moderate to heavy migration we expect all migrant traps around the state to see a few new migrants. Coastal and inland migrant traps should be birdy today given the wide distribution of the radar returns. Birds were moving with a SSE trajectory for the most part. The panhandle and Jacksonville radars showed lots of birds coming through the radar, St. Pete radars had lots of early morning action going on. Melbourne radar has started to pick up in the last few days; birds have started to travel down the east coast. Miami radar and Key West radar both had moderate flow, most birds moving inland in Miami. Key West radar showed lots of migrants leaving as a new group of birds came in; migrants were picked up leaving the Keys and heading over the straights with Cuba in mind. The Keys West may have had a complete replacement of migrants as new birds made it in as others were departing. Good birding to all and don’t forget to share you sightings with other birders in search of migrants around the state.
