Hey All,

The migration certainly has been sputtering here in between the
erratic weather patterns recently. There were still abnormal numbers
of yellow-rumps this morning, and when you mix in the kinglets,
blue-headed vireos, and other "winter" species it seemed more like
February at times.

It still seems like the migration is somewhat retarded out here along
the northeast Florida coast, and today there are strong easterly winds
to boot. But, there are birds around nonetheless.

Last night things sort of "broke" open as a nice wave of birds came
through. Most notable were good numbers of Blue Grosbeaks. They were
on all parts of the Island and there were still fair numbers this
morning at Kingsley Plantation. Yesterday's numbers in no particular
order:

Blue Grosbeak 12
Indigo Bunting 17
Painted Bunting 3
Gray Catbird 5
Hermit Thrush 6
Summer Tanager 1
Eastern Kingbird 14
Blue-headed Vireo 2
Red-eyed Vireo 10

Prothonotary Warbler 3
Worm-eating Warbler 1
