>From David Lawton:
5/8 - Burlington, MDC Access (Clear Brook) Road along Nepaug Reservoir and beyond:  ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER; 2 BLACKBURNIAN WARBLERS; 2 BROWN CREEPERS; WINTER WREN; YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER; WHITE-WINGED SCOTER (uncommon inland).  

Orange-crowned Warbler was occasionally singing near mouth of (presumably) Clear Brook, where it flows into Nepaug; Blackburnians were further up the hill a few hundred meters from there not far from where the Winter Wren was singing.  Also, Common Loon singing on the reservoir as a Bald Ealge flew over made for a nice birding moment.
