This is the radar from 6:00pm last night to 11:30am this morning.
We are having some server issues on Badbirdz2. Last night birds we really on the move, especially down the east coast; if you look at the Jacksonville, Melbourne, and Miami radars you can follow birds flying south. As migrants flew down to Miami a slight south wind and some weather combined may have caused birds to drop. Anyone birding in Miami today? MIDA how was the cape, rain was out over the Atlantic near KB in the morning. More migrants were picked up moving into the radar than moving out during the early morning hours on the velocity images; rain may have been the cause for the activity to suddenly stop passing over the radar over Miami.
There were other rain events during the night that may have helped to concentrate migrants in the central portion of the state and around the Merritt area. If anyone birds these areas we would love to hear if the birds simply flew past or did you have a new influx of birds. West coast birders may have been sucked dry by the migration vacuum, there is still some evidence of birds in the area but may be hard to ground truth given the densities seen on radar in the morning.
Lots of birds flew out of Miami and the Keys headed towards their wintering grounds, wish them a safe flight through the straights.
Nature is Awesome,
