Subject: [CT Birds] Spring migration and Brood X query
Hello Birders,

I'm wondering if the overlap in spring migration and the predicted emergence of cicada Brood X in May will make for any unusual activity. For example, will the abundance of easily-caught food change anything about the way migration unfolds? Will we see overstuffed thrushes and kingbirds with indigestion?

Any thoughts or sources of information on what we might expect would be welcome.
