We’re back online! =)

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. Birds have been streaming in through the Great Lakes and are making their way south. Expect new arrivals everyday with higher concentrations on days that weather plays a role.


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

Hey Badbirdz readers, we are back online! Follow us on a journey to record and analyze bird migration over Florida this fall. We first want to give thanks to David La Puma for tweaking the script and getting us back up and running. David runs Woodcreeper, a rad Birdar site where you can follow migration in the Mid-West, go give him some love 🙂

This fall migration has started off with a bang! Awesome birds such as Baird’s and Buff-breasted Sandpipers, Wilson’s Phalaropes, Cerulean Warblers and even a Willow Flycatcher have already been seen. Swainson’s Warblers are popping up down here in Miami. Alder Flycatchers have invaded Central Florida and extreme South Florida. Northern Parulas, Prairie and Black-and-white Warblers aren’t showing up empty-handed any longer, in tow are Hooded, Kentucky, Yellow and other wood warblers! Swallow-tailed Kites have been congregating and migrating south, thanks to the hard work by the ARCI crew we can follow the kite migration click here to follow your favorite kite!

We hope that you all enjoy fall migration as much as we do! We will be posting daily radar images as well as interpretations of these images and our predictions on the best areas to bird throughout the state. 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!
