Stormy Weather and Birds!

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

Have to work early today so don’t have much time, sorry. Birds were moving out of the state ahead of the arriving front. Over the FL Straits we were surprised to see a moderate push of birds out of Cuba headed right for the squall line. If you are in the Keys or the Totugas it may be interesting today. We are not sure if birds dropped out when they encountered the wind shift and rain but the recipe was there. In other parts of the state rain moved in while birds were aloft. Hit your favorite migrant traps in hopes of finding migrants today and report back. Hope the birds came down 🙂

  1. Great number of migrants in my local patch in Columbia, SC. 13 Species of warblers.

  2. Very migrantless at Dunedin Hammock & Honeymoon Island. All the birds left and the rain dipping south cut us off up here.
