From Steve Mayo:
6/16 - Naugatuck State Forest -- 1 HOODED WARBLER. 12 total warbler species.
It took some time and hiking (Old Highway and Tobys Mt. trails) but I managed most the
expected warblers: Blue-winged, Yellow, Chestnut-sided, BT Green, Pine, Prairie,
Black and White, Redstart, Worm-eating, Ovenbird, LA Waterthrush, Yellowthroat,
Hooded. No sign of the Golden-winged.
Other observations: Phoebes nesting ON the side of a huge glacial erratic, only about
3 feet off the ground. My dog and I were "attacked" by a very agitated female Baltimore
Oriole. I noted a dead female Scalet Tanager with 2 dead nestlings beside her (?!), in the
middle of State Forest Road.
