Birds and Weather

Birds and Weather

Check out this radar image from just a couple of minutes ago. The tail end of the front is passing through the western panhandle and also up through the middle of the state. Birds are already on the wing and they are meeting up with storms, it is still early but the storms are moving west to east and could cause localized concentrations for some of us in the sunshine state. Check back in the morning to see what happens.

Thanks to all the birders across Florida that have posted recently, we really appreciate it. The reports really make a difference in the interpretations we post, the more sightings that are posted the better this site will be for you. Please pass by and post your sightings; it would be awesome to have the whole state represented on the site in the way of reports, we know we can do it there are birders all over the beautiful state.
