Gone banding…but a nice flight out of Cuba into South Florida even looks like Miami got thrown a bone this time. Our suggestion is to go birding and see what’s out there. Remember this is your small window of opportunity to see Connecticut Warbler.
Come back and report your sightings by clicking on the post title and scrolling to the bottom. Have a great Saturday everyone.

  1. There was some migrants in the yard today. A few redstarts, a black-throated blue and a common yellowthroat were in the back most of the day. While sitting in the chair, I noticed a female scarlet tanager (!) eating elderberries in the yard. This is a great plant for birds- a mockingbird guards it, the spot- breasted orioles use it, a catbird frequented it in the winter, and others. It’s growing all over the easement in this neighborhood. It springs up everywhere- but its a great asset. Also, amazingly the indigo bunting that’s been around for a few months is still at the feeder today. Little Havana area of Miami.
    Also-looking at the Key West radar at 10 pm tonight, there was an interesting high reflectivity blob leaving the Marquesas Keys (between KW and the Tortugas). I wonder what they were- landbirds?
