    Default Question for Marina

    Marina....

    Do you have any idea when the Fall Migration will start showing up at Fort DeSoto Park.. I'm thinking that it was in early October, but I'm not sure./.

    Thanks

    I anticipate it'll be starting momentarily. I'll keep a watch and let you know when it's in full swing.

    PS: If you go to this site, you can find a lot of information out about migration when it happens. He usually updates the site once a week.

    There were 16 species of warbler yesterday at Sawgrass Lake Park in St. Pete. It would appear as though migration is here.

    Update:

    There were a few migrants around Fort De Soto Park today. Peregrine Falcon and a Northern Flicker were seen. Flickers do not breed in the park and are only occasionally reported there as a spring or fall migrant – more often in the spring. By noon birders had seen a dozen species of warblers, a couple of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Indigo Buntings, Summer and Scarlet Tanagers and also 8-9 Yellow-billed Cuckoos. Most of these bird were in the East Beach Picnic Area and the East Beach Woods.


    The picnic area was quiet but a walk along the privet trail produced a male Golden-winged Warbler, several Magnolia Warblers, a late Swainson’s Warbler, a somewhat early Yellow-rumped Warbler and more redstarts than any of the others. In all, 14 species of warblers in the woods today.
