The approaching cold front will likely bring the first significant migration
event with regards to song birds. Not the big waves that September and early
October bring but numbers of warblers (mostly adults), flycatchers, etc.
should move Thursday and Friday nights. Some rarities to watch for include
Olive-sided Flycatcher and Mourning Warbler. Shorebirds should shift a bit
as well. The Thunderstorms possible over the weekend could make for some
interesting water birding. The shoreline, lakes, ponds, etc should be
watched when storms roll by for grounded birds like Black Terns, Jaegers,
etc. Don't forget to scan Long Island Sound either.
