East Rock was very good this am. I think we had 21 species of Warblers. Cape May, Blackburnian, Blackpoll, Canada, Wilson's, and Bay-Breasted were all present (several individuals of each species were reported in the park). A hooded was also seen. The main hotspot was the Overlook above the Eli Whitney Museum.
Two Summer Tanagers were seen this am at the Overlook. The male was a dull bird and likely different than the bird seen here a few days ago. A female was also present. I don't think that either have been seen for some time.
Total bird numbers were fantastic. BT Blue, Common Yellowthroat, and Ovenbird were present in huge numbers. Likely close to 50 of each species
