Here’s a national composite from sunset last night through sunrise this morning.
I’ve circled the area of migration in red. Updated: I’ve downloaded the fort Dix radar from the same time period and added it to the post. It now appears next to the national composite. Like I said previously, the whole eastern Flyway from Georgia to New Jersey lit up last night with nocturnal migration. Noel Wamer, who runs the Florida NEXRAD site (www.badbirdz.wordpress.com) reminded me last night that no birds have been leaving Cuba recently, since they’re still under the perpetual north winds. Most of the birds on this wave, then should still be wintering birds from the US, plus a sprinkling of some early migrants that left the Caribbean two weeks ago.
Ready? Set? GO BIRDING!
