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.
