Migrants On The Move Again


More migrants are on their way south tonight, with south to SE winds tonight birds may be reluctant to continue south which may stack up more birds for us here in Miami. Go inland as the winds will favor those locations.
All radars across the panhandle are pretty busy with lots of returns as of 8:45 p.m. and it is still early. New birds are on the way into north Florida; winds are looking like they may stay SE to ESE, birds will be moving into and across the panhandle. The west coast is showing some activity tonight; there has been little movement in the region lately, hopefully this means new birds for you. Come back to see what happens in the morning and post your sightings.

  1. You guys got lucky yesterday at Barnes!! 17 Warbler species and Warbling and Philadelphia Vireos!

    We had a total of 11 Warblers up here: Northern Parula, American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat, Yellow-throated, Blackburnian, Black-and-white, Hooded, Prairie, Pine, Palm, and Yellow Warblers. Our semi-resident Long Billed Curlew was still present at Fort De Soto. Lots of Common terns around. Some Black Terns still present on the Gandy Causeway between Tampa and St. Petersburg. I had my first of fall Herring Gull there too (2nd winter bird). Lots of shorebirds on the causeway too (Willet, Least Sandpiper, Short-billed Dowitchers, and a Marbled Godwit).

    A Merlin and Peregrine Falcon rounded out our migrant watching for the day!
