From Roy Harvey:
04/10/10 - Derby, Osbornedale State Park -- most notable bird was a Pine Warbler back behind the Kellog Center. I've had them in the same spot in past years.
Naugatuck, Naugatuck State Forest -- More Pine Warblers down the trail behind the first green gate.
Beacon Falls, Mathies Park -- And another Pine Warbler in the pines along the NW corner of the pond.
04/11/10 - Southbury, Bent of the River Audubon Sanctuary -- Still way too early for many migrants, but I did get my first-of-the-year Palm Warbler (along the last stretch of river bank next to the open fields, a typical spot for them there), Louisiana Waterthrushes (one by the pool where the beaver loop trail splits from the river trail, the other up on the main "road" at the pool near the intersection with zig-zag and tulip tree trails) and a singing Winter Wren (a short way up the cascade trail, audible from the employee parking lot).
Beacon Falls, CT
