Slowly but Surely

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. As the latest cold front weakens and slides down the state, a second front is setting up over the Great Lakes region. Winds are still coming out of the east which should make West Coast locations more productive than East Coast locations. We are short on time today so with that we leave you with the radar for your interpretation. Inland migrant traps and tried and true locations along the west coast should be your best bet today.

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!
