The woods are pretty quiet now but still little flocks of migrants
drifting through. Trip was worth if for me though, because I got my first Ct
Bay-breasted Warbler today. I've only seen them in Ohio previously. It was with
a small flock of obvious migrant warblers, most of which I couldn't ID
because of the sun and thick foliage. They were mixed in with a flock of local
chickadees. I've had good luck finding other birds with this same flock
