In keeping with similar reports from this morning, I did a run through Eisenhower Park in Milford a little while ago and found it was pretty good with songbirds. My personal highlights were a couple of Canada Warblers, 2 Blackpoll Warblers and at least two Magnolia Warblers.
Be aware that on the north side of the park, just beyond the powerline cut and in a wet area, there is a rather large tent city with many homeless people. Birders may wish to give that area a miss.
In contrast, Sandy Point in West Haven was astonishingly birdless. I have never seen it that barren.
