[CT Birds] Fallouts coming

I hear ya Jamie. But the total lack of certain species that I've seen in areas of southeastern CT juxtaposed with decent numbers of early arrivers on territory, strongly suggests it is a delayed arrival of the mid migration species and not a mass extermination thankfully! I think the next week is going to see the arrival of many more birds, particularly with a shift to southwest winds.

It's not where they are overnight that matters, it's where they stop in the morning. It was clear here at 6:15 AM, which means they often keep going. Today was anything but a "fallout" on the edge of northwestern CT. The only thing falling are the numbers of birds being seen this spring thus far. This has so far been the worst spring migration of my 19 year birding career. I know it's anything but over but so far it's uninspiring at best. Not one Baltimore Oriole today and I was in four places where they are usually common and conspicuous by now. I will say that some locations were at least noisier with bird song than in recent mornings, even if much of it was that of cardinals and catbirds.
