Birds on The Move!

We did not get the chance to post the radar this morning since we were out of the house early for a pelagic trip heading out of Key Biscayne. While out on the water we saw hundreds if not thousands of passerines, flying inches above the water. These birds were headed right for Bill Baggs Cape FL SP; just inches above the waves. We ventured about 15 miles offshore and were still having warblers fly by with lesser numbers of other passerines. The last few nights were cloudy and rainy but last night conditions were perfect for flight. West winds slowed the migrants approach to the mainland. We expect to see awesome numbers of birds on the ground and we hope birders experienced a great day in South FL.

We will post the radar this afternoon.
