What’s Just Over the Horizon

More of the same from yesterday. Georgia and South Carolina radars showed heavy densities of migrants moving a short distance. Jacksonville radar showed some decent movement as well. Some of this may have trickled down into the Central portions of the state. Smaller amounts trickling down into Miami. Good birding to all!

  1. Well winter has apparently not arrived in Kissimmee yet. I went out this afternoon for about an hour and a half and had 8 species of warbler, including a beautiful adult male Golden-winged Warbler. Heres a list of migrants seen:

    Eastern Phoebe- 2
    White-eyed Vireo- 1
    House Wren- 2
    Blue-grey Gnatcatcher- 30+
    Gray Catbird- 10
    Northern Parula- 4
    Magnolia Warbler- 1
    Black-and-white Warbler- 1 female
    Black-throated Blue Warbler- 2 male/female
    Palm Warbler- 8
    Northern Waterthrush- Heard
    Common Yellowthroat- 3
    Indigo Bunting- 15+
    Painted Bunting- 1 female

    I also had 3 probable Yellow-rumped Warblers but they were too far away to see their details. I was so surprised to see the Golden-winged Warbler, is this unusually late to see one?
