[CT Birds] Perfect weather to check the coast, lakes/ponds/rivers, etc

This humid air mass ahead of a small cold front, combined with strong
T-storms, is prime weather to down northbound migrants/vagrants in CT.
Shorebird migration is still going strong right now, so any of the
expected spring migrants plus the odd vagrant (Curlew Sand, Bar-tailed
Godwit, Wilson's Plover would be nice) are possible. Many tern species
are possible in this weather, both inland and coastally, particularly
Black Tern. A visit to your local patch this afternoon may yield one
of these goodies. If you're lucky enough to find a tern flock (always
difficult in CT before post-breeding dispersal), take a close look
through. Be safe though, looks nasty out there!
