May 21: Back in Connecticut. East Rock Park in New Haven is a perennial migrant trap and an ideal place for viewing warblers, as the ascending trails and s-curve roads provide some eye-level views of the treetops. On good days during migration twenty or more warbler species can be seen here. Among the mix this morning was a female Bay-breasted warbler, a species not commonly reported in Connecticut in recent years, but seemingly more in evidence this year.
Also, I have finally found a reliable place to both hear and see Eastern Whip-poor-wills, but so far no photos. I’ll keep trying.
