Spring Mix

Well the spring cycle continues to be working for the birds because we aren’t seeing them 🙂 Some birds are trickling in here and there, but nothing huge.

Unstable conditions persist over the Gulf, as a result we are seeing large thunderstorms making their way towards the coast. This could be making it hard for birds to travel where they want to go, and may put them down along the first stretch of land they find. Currently a strong squall line is moving east of Tallahassee, check out the radar image.

This system is forecast to continue to move across FL and may affect folks all the way south to Miami or even the FL Keys. Keep an eye out for localized concentration of migrants, these pockets of great birding can be just around the corner. Enjoy another Sunday of birding 🙂
