Big Migration Over Florida

SE Mosaic Radar Loop 26/September2010


We will post more after we get back from banding you all. We will let you know what we banded today as well. Have a great day, birds should be around as the radar showed heavy densities of migrants heading south into FL. Oh and there is a possibility that large numbers of birds dropped in over the central portions of the panhandle. Heavy rains were over the region last night at the right time. Let us know if there is any concentrations of birds up there. Go get’um!

Please leave your sightings here.

  1. Good afternoon,

    Lori and I spent a few late morning hours at Hillsborough River State Park and birded mostly along the River Rapids Trail. Our highlight was a male Golden-winged Warbler in an oak at the picnic grounds. The list:

    Acadian Flycatcher 4;
    White-eyed Vireo 10;
    Red-eyed Vireo 2;
    Swainson’s Thrush 7;
    Golden-winged 1;
    N.Parula (many);
    Chestnut-sided 1;
    Blackburnian 3;
    Yellow-throated 6;
    Pine 1;
    Black-&-white 4;
    Prothonotary 1;
    Am. Redstart 5;
    Ovenbird 12;
    C. Yellowthroat 5;

  2. Hello, All.

    Well, as expected, we had very few birds in the nets today. This weather is just not that great. Peak migration is still right around the corner so we are hoping for things to pick up once this big front can get outta here.

    We caught only 6 birds this morning by 9:30 AM. Carolina Wren, Northern Cardinal, Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush, Common Yellowthroat, and best of all a young female Painted Bunting. Buntings are back! Yay!!

    Most of the crew also had a nice leisurely encounter with an adult male Painted Bunting feeding on the grass seeds where we let the grasses grow this year. They are across from the mulched river path toward the pier. Hoping to get more Buntings and Sparrows in this spot this season.

    I heard at least 2 other bunting chips in another section of grasses closest to the banding table which is actually where we caught the female.

    I will make the official blog post from today after I get everyone’s photos in the next couple of days.

    Happy birding!
