Computer Down

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.

Hi all! Our laptop is still down which is keeping is from providing you with radar animation loops and keeps us without images to interpret for you. Conditions have not changed much, high pressure is still in control and unfavorable conditions and steering winds have slowed migration down to a trickle. Unfortunately it looks like unfavorable conditions will prevail for the extended forecast period, this will steer birds inland and towards the west coast. We keep waiting for that next big flight and will let you know when to expect the next batch of migrants in your hood.

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!

  1. An additional 400 Canada Geese moved through the Vidalia, GA area. Story with this. A couple years ago the community college decided they needed to clear the 150 Canada Geese that were living on the lake at the school. The birds were gathered, banded, and shipped to Oregon. The birds got the last laugh. In the last couple of weeks at least 700 birds have stop at that lake on their way through. My guess. The last flight to show up will stay the winter. Go ahead fool with Mother Nature. 🙂
