I want to know where these birds are headed. They are off to a tropical getaway.

Radars don’t only pick up weather reports they can also pick up non-meteorological things — like smoke, swarms of bugs and large flocks of birds.┬áNational Weather Service in Key West caught the migration of birds moving through the South of Florida. Birds moving south away from colder weather is nothing new — but what is cool is how scientists and bird watchers use weather radar to track their migration.

A map shows real-time analysis of bird migration around the country and can even tell you the number of birds passing over a certain area.

We all know this is a sign of Fall coming, but not for Florida.
