[CT Birds] Night migrants

With regards to Bluff Point morning flight, the current surface wind
direction (1 a.m.) is inconsistent (varying by more than 100 degrees) across
the length of Long Island Sound. Also the predicted surface wind direction
for dawn is wrong for a good morning flight at Bluff. Having said that, I've
seen plenty of times in the past where the forecasted surface wind direction
ended up being wrong, and if the wind speed falls off just a little from the
prediction it could be interesting. Still watching the end of the week for
slam dunk conditions...

There appears to be a great flight tonight. Many Swainson's Thrushes flying
over. Others mixed in but road noise not allowing good ID's.
