I'm forwarding part of a Massbird posting from Marshall Iliff, one of our recent COA annual meeting speakers,eBird guru, and birder extraordinaire, as it should be of interest to CT birders.

> With the good migration weather recently and the wet cold weather that started overnight, conditions were perfect for a waterbird fallout. Check inland lakes, rivers, and reservoirs before dusk if you can! Waterbird sin active migration have probably been "knocked down" and may rest on even small patches of water until the weather clears. The potential is there to catch some birds that regularly migrate over land, but rarely stop unless the weather is really bad (like today). Watch for loons, grebes, ducks, gulls, and maybe even early moving shorebirds or something like a Caspian Tern, possibly.
