From now until Tuesday or Wednesday, Connecticut and the surrounding region is predicted to receive warm winds from the South and Southwest. With rarity season upon us, birders should be alert for southern and western accidentals, such as yellow-bellied kingbirds, Fork-tailed Flycatcher, Bell's Vireo, western warblers, etc (the list goes on). Rarities such as these are likely to ride the winds up into New England.
On Tuesday or Wednesday night, the winds look like they will shift to the West/North, making a great setup for a push of migrants, and with them, (hopefully) more rarities. Who knows, maybe mid next week Lighthouse Point will get the first push of Cave Swallows, and maybe a Swainson's Hawk too!
