Sensing trouble?

A Kirtland's Warbler was found in Cape May, New Jersey, yesterday. That's unusual given that the Kirt's usual fall migratory path is from the jack pine to the Carolina coast, where it then makes the jump to The Bahamas.

This morning, the Erie Bird Observatory posted this Tweet about the lack of bird movement in the area along the Atlantic coast where Hurricane Ian was having an impact on the Carolinas.

It makes you wonder if that KW in New Jersey sensed there was trouble ahead, rerouted east, and decided to hang out in the dunes for a couple of day.
