Dave and Tom: Re Northern Parulas nesting in CT, on June 10 doing the LHAS SBC, I tracked and saw a singing male in West Morris and heard a second elsewhere but did not see it. However last year on June 11, doing the same count in the same general vicinity, we heard and saw a male and female together (by bridge over river through deep woods), though were not then checking for signs of nesting. Strong possibility though.

Dave: Another amazing observation. There's a long history of this species
breeding to our south, west and north but not here in CT. Keep up the good
work. My best, Tom
