This is the radar from 5:00pm last night to 10:00am this morning.
Another night of little activity on radar. Birds were on the move but in small quantities over the state. We would expect the best birding spots to be tried-and-true migrant traps and barrier islands. Be on the lookout for first of season birds that are now making the flight north. Every week we read about first of season sightings around FL, a great sign that migration is heating up. A weak front is moving down the state today and is expected to fizzle out over southern Dade County. Not much is to be expected with this front. Almost no precipitation in the forecast thanks to high pressure building in the Atlantic which will allow birds to fly right on past us. Next week we may get lucky if forecast models are correct, a front is forecast to move into the western Gulf early in the week. Eastward progression of this front hinges on other factors so we will keep an eye on this development.
As always, Badbirdz depends on YOU to report your sightings and be our ‘eyes on the ground’, so please come back and give us an idea of what you are seeing in your neck of the woods. This will help us better understand the radar images and in return we can pass this knowledge onto you :)
Nature is Awesome,
