I have been saying (on Facebook) that folks should keep their eyes out for southern vagrants based on the wind maps for the last few days. Looking at the current picture, conditions again look favorable as this cold front approaches. After passage we may also get some good movements from the north and west. This link has been posted before, but I find it extremely useful for visualizing patterns of potential relevance to bird and butterfly/ode movements:
This project is actually someone's art project, but it uses real-time meteorological data for the results. Check out that southwest flow ahead of the front and NW flow behind!

Now there is a Loggerhead Shrike reported from Cape Cod. It is definitely a good time to poke around in your favorite birding areas.
