James Purcell and I birded a few spots in Fairfield this morning from around 7:15-11:00 in search of migrants. None of the spots we hit were terribly birdy but we were still able to pull together some good birds including a nice Yellow-bellied Flycatcher at the Birdcraft. Highlights/migrants below:
