Birds were on the move last night, the front was making it’s way into the panhandle and brought some birds in with it. Behind the front the skies were clearing up and birds were starting to take off. We expect tomorrow to be a better birding day as birds should move with the north winds that come behind the front.
Tallahassee radar was picking up lots of movement last night as well as most of the Panhandle. St. Pete radar was not slacking either as it picked up returns most of the night. Miami radar was showing some signs of light movement and some birds may have been flying low as they were lost during the night. Showers were moving in off the Atlantic into southern Miami-Dade and may help us out a bit with an influx of birds today. Melbourne radar also had some light migration, birds could be seen entering the radar ahead of the the front. Jacksonville radar had some activity going on but it seems as most of it flew SW towards the St. Pete/Sarasota area.
The panhandle seems like the best spot to bird today, maybe St. Marks will look good today as well as some inland locations around the region. Further west along the panhandle may also prove to be productive, lets hope we are right they have not had the best fall this year. Please come back and let us know what you see around today, we would really appreciate it.
