 Hi All,

Not so much sign of the big movement predicted for the last couple of days at Trout Brook Valley this AM. Certainly some stuff around, but when you spent the day before surrounded by hundreds if not thousands of warblers in Central Park, New York (17 species and killer views of 2 separate Hoodeds) the smattering today seemed a little bit small beer. That said crippling views of a heartily singing Nashville down to a few feet along with great views of its chestnut cap were some reward, as was an obligingly perched Scarlet Tanager and one of a couple of singing Worm-eatings finally revealing itself to the group. Of the 8 species of warbler only Ovenbird and B&W were in any numbers. Other CT first of years for myslef included a singing Wood Thrush and a Baltimore Oriole or two. Looking forward to heading back to Central Park with the Sunrise Birding next week (just 1 or 2 places left), on the right day it really is about the best place to see neotropical migration on this part of the east coast.
