Stratford today reflected what one would expect after a poor migratory 
evening as the usual early migrants were well-dispersed in inland areas 
with a quiet coastline and slow hotspots. I quickly checked in on a 
couple inland locations with Boothe Park's pond yielding 1 BROWN 
THRASHER, my FOY Gray Catbird and Yellow Warblers, with a female Yellow 
cooperating for photos: http://rtpi.org/yellow-warbler-2/

Wooster Park had a number of Yellow-rumped Warblers and a few each of 
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Palm Warblers and my FOY Black-and-white 
Warblers. Stratford Point had only the earliest and most expected 
passerines, as did the McKinney Refuge, with more Yellow-rumped 
Warblers, Eastern Towhees, Swamp Sparrows, and so on.

Tonight should be interesting with a southerly flow initially that 
should shut down and reverse as surface high pressure moves into the 
region, perhaps bringing us new birds that are subsequently encouraged 
to stop here. We'll see how many take flight along the coast.
