[CT Birds] Heavy migration

As expected, the recent cold front has set off good migration conditions across the east. There has been a westerly flow of late and migration has been slow. A strong front following such a pattern could be a recipe for western vagrants. In any case, the radar is quite active across the Northeast and especially the Southeast. Birds will be leaving, arriving and moving in good numbers tomorrow as things get shaken up all across the east.
Coastal spots should be hopping, and I bet Stratford Point, Sachem's Head and Hammo will be active places early in the morning. The type of morning that can be good at Salt Meadow Unit in Westbrook too.
