5/8/16, 4:20-6:20 AM -- Backyard, Westport
Southerly winds and oncoming precipitation made for significant nocturnal movement early this morning, with several warblers chipping as they flew over. I had 1 GREATER YELLOWLEGS, 1 VEERY, and 1 slightly late PALM WARBLER which gave a few chips and even sang. With sunrise came five more species of warblers. Also worth noting is that today brought relatively high numbers of white-throated sparrows. The effects of last night's movement are clear, with fall out-like conditions anticipated in parts of western Connecticut.
