Thought I saw it two days ago but didn't get a good enough look, but today got a great look, and sure enough it was a Redstart. I am in Brattleboro near downtown. It is amazing and disconcerting how many late birds have been around. On Nov 15 I was moving wood in Canaan NH and had a Blue Headed Vireo singing in the adjacent forest, latest I have heard of them being that far north.
