Hit both of my birding hot spots this morn. 
Bakersville swamp in N Htfd was completely overcast with fog. 
It was also dead cept for the Catbirds. All the sparrows we saw
Sunday were all gone. 
Same was the case with Brodey park. I concluded, no migrants
dropped in this area last night, and all the birds which were here 
yesterday departed to points south. 

Went home and noticed some movement in back yard. There
I encountered a small 40+ bird group feeding within the trees.

3 Blue-H, 1 Red-eyed Vireo, several Redstart, BT Green and 
B&W Warbs. best was a low Wilson's, my first of the fall.
These birds I feel were migrants that were in the area
 waiting for the night sky to open up!

Also-checked out a spot below Brodey Park and had - 

6 Junco
8 White-throated Sparrow
2 YB Sapsucker
1 Swainson's Thrush
pr Hooded Merganser on pond
Many Flicker everywhere!
