Hi all,
Just a note to alert CT birders that the severe thunderstorms (and heavy rain) 
forecast for this afternoon and evening could possibly cause uncommon to rare 
species (especially shorebirds, gulls, and terns) to occur.  It would be a good 
idea to check coastal and inland areas for things like Baird's, Buff-breasted, 
phalaropes, godwits, Sabine's Gull, jaegers, etc.  Today and Saturday.

Yesterday, this same storm system resulted in a Wandering Tattler in Chicago, an 
Illinois first-record.
