To add to the extralimitals, New York has also had 2 Townsend’s Warblers this past week including one at Bashakill Wildlife Management Area in Wurtsboro, NY (about 70 Miles from CT).. Seems like this is a good spring for them in the East.. If you see something that looks like a Black-throated Green Warbler, but something just doesn’t look right.. Take a photo!
