I went to Lake Waramaug in New Preston this morning and also sensed decent 
movement, such as the lake surface covered with Tree Swallows and small 
flocks of Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers encountered.

Charlie & others,

This is interesting to me. I wouldn't have pegged an inclement, cool
day like today to produce so many reports of migrating birds. Taking
Charlie's observations along with other sightings such as Brian's
Broad-wings in Greenwich, it seems like there are many birds on the
move today.
