The entire eastern flyway yesterday was moving. Birds were on the wing in a general direction of NE –> SW. Coastal sites look best for chances of seeing numbers. St Pete, Miami and Key West radars all showed an influx of birds but MIA and KW may have had a flyover. Please post your sightings.

  1. Trey and I birded two hours this morning. Bill joined us for a short while. The numbers are not great, but the variety is pretty good. Best birds were Philadelphia Vireo and Bay-breasted Warbler. There are birds in almost any part of the park except for the north pine area. Didn’t see anything there. Bill said he may have seen a Mourning Warbler. When I asked him where, he replied “Behind the Bachman’s.” Not sure what he meant.

    Warblers:

    Tennessee
    Parula
    Magnolia
    Cape May
    BTB
    Yellow-throated
    Pine
    Prairie
    Palm
    Bay-breasted
    Blackpoll
    Black-and-white

    Others:
