This afternoon at Sparkle Lake Conservation Area in Groton, there was a very late American Redstart flycatching around some bittersweet.

Also nearby was a Red Fox Sparrow. Here's the checklist with media:
Interestingly, last weekend in RI I also had a Prairie Warbler and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher hanging about, so keep an eye out! Maybe they'll stick around for the CBCs.
