Friday Weekly Summary Posts provide a weekly update, and let you know, even if there are no NGR birds reported in a given week, that The NGR is alive, well, and still on the job! NGR weeks always start on Saturdays! :^)

Current NGR RBA MODE: CASUAL
See Modus Operandi section for mode descriptions.

THIS WEEK'S NOTES AND HIGHLIGHTS:

GA - Magnificent Frigatebird, Yellow-headed Blackbird
FL - A new Florida Keys Hawkwatch one-day record was set for Broad-winged Hawks (1363) on 10/10.

A non-tropical gale produced very strong winds along the east coasts of central and north Florida, and southern Georgia, bringing many pelagic species inshore or onshore, many Magnificent Frigatebirds were sighted inshore in the area which is unusual.

THIS WEEK'S POSSIBLE OR PROBABLE BIRDS (See the 2011 POSSIBLE OR PROBABLE BIRDS section):

NC - Bicknell's Thrush

GREAT RELOCATIONS THIS WEEK (See the 2011 NEWS AND UPDATES section):

FL - YELLOW-GREEN VIREO

Good Near Georgia Birding!
