Birds entrained and displaced by Hurricane Idalia

Andrew Farnsworth The Cornell Lab Aug 30, 2023

Hurricane Idalia, now a Tropical Storm, arrived with catastrophic impacts to Florida and the southeastern US on Wednesday 30 August, hosting powerful winds, heavy rains, and intense storm surges. This is still a dangerous storm, with current conditions in the Carolinas favoring continued heavy rains, flooding, rip currents, and storm surges. This storm has also entrained and displaced many Gulf of Mexico species far inland, displayed below on the map.

For those watching the storm and observing from safe locations, safety is always first (including avoiding storm surges, extreme conditions, and not impeding first and emergency response efforts) above birding and research!
