 I'm hoping some of the several experts who post here will provide some insight to these questions.


(1) Several sightings of hooded and kentucky warblers have been posted. Isn't it a bit far north for these species?  Is there any indication that they are expanding their ranges northward, or is this year unusual?


(2) Why are there so few chestnut-sided warblers this year?  I haven't seen a single one yet, and I spent two days at River Road in Kent as well as two trips to East Rock Park.


(3) Have yellow-throated warblers been seen in Connecticut recently?  Would they be considered very rare this far north?


(4) I see baltimore orioles everywhere this year; at least five times more than I am used to.  Is it just my luck or is it true that there seem to be more than usual?
