Tail End Of Neotropical Migration

This is the radar from 5:00pm last night to 6:00am this morning.

Frames are every 1/2 hour. Click on the thumbnail to view the full-sized animation.

Migration was evident on radar last night. Some long distance and short distance migration can be seen on the SE mosaic radar loop. Birds that headed south made it far south and birds that chose a slower paced migration seem to have landed in areas across Northern FL. Down our way in Miami we expect the bulk of the birds passing over to continue their path south and only stop briefly at out migrant traps before continuing a day of county hopping. We will post more later, have to get out to the banding station.
