It’s Going to Be a Rainy One!

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. Not a whole lot of migration evident on radar last night. Some birds could have been migrating but if this is true, they were moving under the radar range. Post some more later today.

Post some more later today. If any birds were on the move they didn’t make it far. Miami and Ft. Lauderdale may have a few new birds around as birds came over for the Bahamas. Kirtland’s Warbler anyone? Get out and look between showers.

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 badbirdz-reloaded@hotmail.com, 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,
