After a very rainy day when the upper end of tropical storm Paula moved eastward (the storm was over Cuba) cool dry air has moved in. It’s time to turn off the A/C and enjoy one of my favorite times of the year. I was reading the forecast discussion on NOAA’s website this morning and came across this;
THE RADAR REFLECTIVITY ANIMATIONS ALSO ILLUSTRATE AUTUMN BIRD MIGRATION WITH SPLENDOR. THE 25-30 DBZ ECHOES SUGGEST OVER 10000 BIRDS PER MILE ARE FLYING SOUTHWARD TO THEIR WINTER HABITATS... ACCORDING TO RADAR ORNITHOLOGY STUDIES
The birds know how to follow the weather.
Margie and I really enjoy the many species
that we see in the wintertime when we are
cruising and anchored in Everglades National
Park. We have a sunset sail today, our 1st
of the "snowbird" season. It will be nice to
have the boat sailing again.
