Radars in North FL were jamming. If you are between Tallahassee and Jacksonville chances are new birds will be around this morning. St Petersburg and Melbourne radars were increasing in activity through out the night; good chances of some new faces around today. The Miami radar showed a small influx of birds as well. Please come back and report your sightings, as this site works best as a collaborate effort. Good birding to all!

  1. We didn’t bother with banding yesterday at Cape Florida because it looked like a sleeper with the rain block to the N and nothing on Miami radar. We did go out otday and banded 17 new birds of 10 species, including 2 gray-cheeked thrush and one gc-Bicknell’s intergrade. Also banded a Tennessee warbler and blackpoll that were chased into the net by a Cape May warbler who was trying to control the entire fruiting ficus tree. She went in right after the other two. 8 recaptures today; mostly black-throated blues that have been hanging around for a few days, trying to put on more fat to continue the journey.
