Glad to see folks have been enjoying the influx of migrants over the past couple of days. I'd like to echo Nathan Hall's shoutout to birdcast.info. It is an excellent way to predict birdy days during migration season. I also like to use these NEXRAD radar loops <http://tempest.aos.wisc.edu/radar/uscompjs.html>... they're a great addition to one's radar-birding toolbox :)
Aside from the aforementioned returns of many Eastern Towhees, Blue-headed Vireos, and Yellow-rumped Warblers, I'd like to add these FOYs to the list, which I picked up while birding around Proctor Road in Biddeford this am: SPOTTED SANDPIPER, GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHER (3), NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW (2), CHIMNEY SWIFT (4), GRAY CATBIRD, NASHVILLE WARBLER, CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER (4), COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, and BALTIMORE ORIOLE. Black-and-white Warblers and Ovenbirds were quite common, and I had a couple more Northern Parulas as well. Though that BT Green warbler that everyone's been reporting has still been evading me... but hopefully for not much longer.
