Some of the fallout-ish highlights so far at Stratford Point today - 1 
Eastern Wood-Pewee, 1 Veery, 1 Wood Thrush, 3 Ovenbird, 1 
Black-and-white Warbler, 1 Common Yellowthroat, 1 Northern Parula, 7+ 
Yellow Warbler, 6 Yellow-rumped Warbler, 6+ White-throated Sparrow, 2 
Swamp Sparrow, 5 Eastern Towhee, 3 Orchard Oriole, 2 Baltimore Oriole, 
5+ Ruby-throated Hummingbird, 2 House Wren, etc. There is undoubtedly 
more as birds often stay quiet here being at an unusual and small out of 
place site for forest interior species, and it takes considerable time 
to get them all out. Always surprising how well they can hide in such a 
tiny space...

At least 200 Brant, small groups of Semipalmated Plover and Semipalmated 
Sandpiper, still have Common Loon and Red-breasted Merganser, groups of 
Double-crested Cormorant going by, active Osprey, and more. I'll see 
what I can get when the rain stops. It's a good day to go find that 
first Swainson's Warbler for CT, among others.
