No sign of the migration that hit the CT shore yesterday. If  any passed 
over last night they took some of the residents with them. I did  manage to 
relocate the Swainson's Thrush about 300 yards south of previous  sighting. 
Saw only briefly though, and could not re-locate. It was near the  first real 
parking turn-out on the right after crossing the stream, going  north.
