Migrants return

Blue-Gray Gnatcher taken by Bill Kominskey at Green Cay, used with permission.

The migrants are returning to South Florida. I saw my FOS Blue-gray Gnatcatchers today at Green Cay. We also had a pair of American Redstarts and 2 Prairie Warblers. Soon I'm heading down to the Everglades in search of an Alder Flycatcher and maybe some other new birds if I'm lucky.

Go read Andy's new bird blog to stay posted on his travels. Tomorrow is the beginning of his big bird year.

That's great news! Migration means that cooler weather has hit the northern states and THAT means that it won't be hot in Florida forever. The best birding months are right around the corner.
