Lots of migration going on last night over Florida. Inland locations look best for migrants today. Miami had lots of activity last night, high densities of migrants were picked up by the radar heading inland. In the late morning hours we had a shift in the winds which may have helped birds into the southern coast of Dade, look for migrants at your favorite traps; birds should be around today. Jacksonville radar also had a busy night, keep your eyes peeled for any new birds. Post more later.

  1. Sadowski had a bit more activity this morning than I’ve seen recently. I birded only 1/2 hour while “getting doughnuts” and found my year Baltimore Oriole, a summer Tanager, Red-eyed Vireo, and 5 warbler species. I had my first Black-throated-blue of the season this morning; it was delicious!
