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.
