Subject: [CT Birds] weather and birds
For the past day or so there has been a strong southerly airflow offshore coming straight up from Florida. The local, moderate south-east winds and rain seem conducive to forcing some birds down. Shorebirds, especially phalaropes may be caught up in such storms, and checking areas with these in mind may yield results.Caspian Terns and ducks may also be evident in their movements.

If the weather tonite south of us allows for some migration, although the wind is supposed to go west around midnight, the rain predicted to occur in CT may also drop some migrants.
Whatever happens, the weather may be a good motivator to get out and check some coastal areas for "carolinean" species such as Prothonotary, Kentucky and Yellow-throated Warblers, Summer Tanagers and of course, it's perfect time to find CT's first singing (and overdue) Swainson's Warbler along the river at East Rock or Edgewood park in New Haven.
Regards and good birding,
