Computer still 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.

The progression of cold fronts triggered heavy migration over the Mid-West and Appalachians last night. As these cold fronts continue to march south, so will migrants. Winds are dipping down from the north and should improve birding conditions a bit in the state over the weekend. The current weather pattern is a typical summer pattern, unless we see a change in conditions we can expect mediocre to slow birding. The weak cold front will make it as far south as Jacksonville, maybe a bit farther south before becoming diffuse. We play the waiting game now, sooner or later we will get our fair share of good birding days.

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!
