Hi all,

For those planning on heading to Canaan to follow up on Will's report,
this is the exact location:

Here's a photo of the pitch pine plot from a few years ago, right
about where that Google Maps pin is:

Park along Canaan Mountain Road and walk in using Chattleton Road.

Great Mountain Forest contains the largest spruce forest in
Connecticut. Most of it consists of planted nonnatives but there is
native red and black spruce around some of the ponds. A good spot for
a Boreal Chickadee to show up. There's also some red pine on the west
side of Canaan Mountain Rd that could be good.

And for anyone traveling through Winsted or Norfolk, remember to check
ornamental crabapples in the downtown areas. You could get lucky with
a Pine Grosbeak or Bohemian Waxwing.
