In addition to being on the alert for early arrivals this spring, I think it
is a good idea to be on the lookout for southern "overshoots," those birds
that typically nest in the southeast but occasionally come up into the
northeast during migration.  This spring may a better-than-average year for
this phenomenon, and such species may turn up in late March or early-mid
April.  Species to look for include: Swallow-tailed Kite, White Ibis,
Chuck-wills-widow, Prothonotary and Kentucky Warblers, Summer Tanager, and
Blue Grosbeak.
