Birds Are On The Move!

regional radar (this image is much later in the night than the two below)

Miami radar - check out the returns moving west out of the Bahamas. Blackpolls anyone?

Key West radar - Look at that wad of radar returns!

We just checked the radar and holy batman is there a lot of birds aloft. Radar reflectivity images of the Florida straits are thick with signatures being bounced back to the radar. Birds are moving fast and furious, some flying at speeds over 4o knots with the help of a crisp tailwind. In the morning we will be able to see what happened over the period of the night and post our intrep. Pass by and check it out.
