Rainy Daze Are Here

National Overview

Below is a snapshot of the national map with radar and weather fronts. Use this map to get an overall feel of migration and how weather affects nocturnal migration. Lots of precipitation over the state; little bird movement. We wait for better migration weather!

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

Migration was restricted last night due to widespread rain. Some birds could have been on the move below the cover of rain, but it was minimal movement. Localized movements are all we expect around the state. Rainy days are always a good time to go out and check if anything did move into your area though. Have a dry day peeps 🙂

As always Badbirdz depends on its readers to help us understand the magic of bird migration. We ask our readers to take a minute to email us at, post a comment on the site or share what you are seeing on our Facebook page. As a whole the Florida birding community is large and enthusiastic about bird migration, lets join together this year to make Badbirdz an integral part of every birders toolbox. Together we can track and monitor birds and learn more about this phenomenon called MIGRATION!

Nature is Awesome,
