Subject: [CT Birds] Greenwich Audubon migration, CT WARBLER
Greenwich, AM: in response to the warnings of an amazing push of migrants
in the northeast over the night of the 14th, I headed to Quaker Ridge
starting from the pre-dawn at 6:20 AM, where there was indeed an incredible
movement of 40 species. This included multiple Rose-breasted Grosbeaks
(around 12), Red-breasted Nuthatches, alongside two autumnal shows:
sparrows and warblers. Sparrows were of 6 species, including Savannah,
first-of-the-season White-throated, and a beautiful LINCOLN'S. 10 species
of warbler were seen, highlights being one each Nashville and TENNESSEE
Warbler, but the best sighting of the day was easily a CONNECTICUT WARBLER,
seen briefly but extraordinarily well in the apple orchard at the beginning
of the day. The bird was not relocated but could still be present among
many other lingering migrants.
