Subject: [CT Birds] Big winds equal new arrivals?


We may have some new arrivals in CT tomorrow with the strong southwesterly
winds that are occurring today and tonight. While many Fall migrants prefer
stable atmospheric conditions for migration, Spring migrants are motivated
by the urge to get on territory quickly and are more likely to move during
turbulent atmospheric conditions. Spring migrants will often use strong
tailwinds to cover a lot of ground fast. So be on the alert for new
arrivals tomorrow. Maybe our first Ruby-throated Hummingbird for 2008?
