If I'm not mistaken Robely the last documented occurrence of Say's Phoebe in CT was in the 1800s. It is a vagrant to the northeast of North America on an essentially annual basis however.

As usual, the bird had flown before I could take a picture.  It was exactly
the color of the example in my Smithsonian guide, and slightly weightier
than a plain Eastern, but doing the same hawking of insects (and window
bombing).  Smithsonian guide indicates the Say's does a lot of Fall
wandering in our area.  Is this a case of "mis-guiding"?  (Sorry.  Couldn't
resist.) Robley Evans  North Stonington
