It wasn't all that long ago that Acadian Flycatchers were a rarer bird in Connecticut. It was considered an uncommon migratory breeder in the 1994 "The Atlas of Breeding Birds of Connecticut", Louis Bevier, editor. The section on them by George Clark states that they were a breeder in Connecticut in 1913 but only in Stamford. They disappeared as breeders until the 1960's, then best known in Devil's Hopyard State Park in East Haddam. By 1970, they began to increase in the eastern part of the state and have continued to expanded statewide since then.
