Hi all,

Strong weather during migration sometimes results in unusual displacement
of birds.

For the second time in a week we have a strong S/SE flow. The first event
caused a fallout of passerine migrants along the eastern New England coast
and New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. There was a southern flare to this
event, with birds like Yellow-throated Warblers and Summer Tanagers being
seen. This current storm may do something similar. Even if CT is not
directly affected at first, some of those birds may move through CT in the
coming days as they try to reorient.

Also, despite sound watching today apparently not producing much, the winds
will become more easterly and be at their strongest overnight tonight, with
a shift to strong westerly tomorrow. A sound watch first thing tomorrow may
produce some birds that are blown in this evening/tonight.
