Birds are once again trickling into the state. The majority of the action occurred over the east coast last night. A look at Jacksonville, Melbourne and Miami radars shows that birds were indeed moving more over the coast than over inland locations. Weak and variable winds should not play a big role as to where birds will land today but given the trajectory of these birds, coastal locations look best. Hit up your migrant traps and let us know what you see around today. The low is finally moving away and should clear the skies for a big flight. We are anticipating a big push starting tonight or tomorrow night. This weekend could be awesome around FL. Lets see what plays out in the following days.
