 From Scott Kruitbosch:
04/04/10 - Stratford Point -- 2 BROWN THRASHER, 3 FOY HERMIT THRUSH.
Stunningly late for a town that usually has multiple overwintering.
04/04/10 - Stratford yard -- 1 BROWN CREEPER, 1 FOY NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED
SWALLOW. Migrants included 1 Yellow-rumped Warbler, 1 Ruby-crowned Kinglet,
4 Golden-crowned Kinglets.
04/03/10 - Stratford Great Meadows IBA -- 3 FOY LESSER YELLOWLEGS, 2 PIPING
04/02/10 - Stratford Great Meadows IBA -- 1 FOY MARSH WREN, 2 FOY SNOWY
EGRET (flying over due north).

Osprey, Tree Swallow, Great Egret, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Pine Warbler,
Greater Yellowlegs and more are now becoming widespread and common in
Stratford. We should have constant moderate to heavy migration throughout
the next several nights with birds showing up in the expected areas a little
earlier than usual. Watch for the overshoots!
