      Improving Conditions; Migration Resumes

      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. Migrants grow restless and take off in the face of Northerly winds. Flight calls could be heard over our place as the night fell, low ceilings had these birds flying low.

      Birds crossed the FL Straits last night; this has not gone on for a few days now. Birds were also moving in from the Bahamas. Migrants were moving S->N and E-.>NW over the FL Keys and Miami. Lookouts for new arrivals at migrant traps along the east coast of S. FLA, as birds were arriving from the Bahamas. Birds would fly into C. Florida but south of the Tampa radar as they are not seen going over this area. Conditions are improving and there will likely be a good flight tonight if it is cloudy over your area between 7:45 and 8:45PM; go outside and listen for flight calls! Have a great day everyone.
      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@..., 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!

        Found one female Blackpoll warbler and then a stunning male Magnolia warbler while on the end of the boardwalk near the parking lot this morning. They were moving to the interior just after that. Several others got to see them, too. Also saw two Red-eyed vireos and witnessed Red-bellied woodpeckers mating, and saw both E. Screech owls.
