Amelia Island, Nassau County:  A large migratory wave of raptors is passing
over NE Florida today.  This follows several days of persistent northerly
winds and light rains grazing the coast or falling over offshore waters.
Skies today are "milky" with a low (400 ft.) ceiling of strata cumulus
racing south with modest northerly winds. Kettles of osprey are passing,
along with peregrines, merlin and bald eagle with most birds likely moving
in or above the ceiling. I suspect this wave will be over the mid-Keys in 48
hours and Curry Hammock should have a big day then.
