[CT Birds] Acadian Flycatchers?

I agree with Jamie. The number of Acadians in CT was debated a bit last year. While there are probably more here than most birders realize due to their tendency to be in the forest interior, they are not a common species here. So just a few more reports than usual can make it seem as if there are significantly more around. Breeding bird surveys executed over time would be a better barometer. I walked maybe 30 miles of appropriate habitat along CT trails in the past month and have turned up just one, a known breeder at an expected location. To reinforce Jamie's comments on range, there is currently an Acadian in New Hampshire that is getting specific directions posted in reports because it is such an uncommon bird for NH.
