I also noticed some spruces here in Northern CT full of cones as well, but not to the extent of White pines. The spruce and fir plantings on Canaan MT at 1,400 plus/minus feet also had a good number of cones, though some trees were bare.
A possible good winter finch year here if the situations are favorable. Although a banner crop in the boreal forests up north might be good enough to keep them there all winter, as is usually the case.

It's not just here in southern New England. This past spring while on my usual birding/photographing trips to the boreal forests in northwest Maine, the cone crop on the spruces etc there was very heavy.
