Migrants Stay Put

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. We will post a full analysis of radar and conditions later this morning. Sorry for the half post but we are both feeling under the weather today.

Winds continued to keep the mass of migrants down on the ground. This makes for great birding conditions as migrants are not moving a whole lot. Hit up locations that have been good the last few days and catch migrants that have decided to stay put before the leave. See you soon 🙂

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,
