Rob, PW's are the usually one of the first arrivals in my yard in Somers each spring, and I often hear singing individuals well into September, including this year.  Very clear adult songs included.  Not sure if they are the summer residents, or fall migrants, or why they sing so late, but they do.

Thursday morning:

A flock of 36 Fish Crows were heading toward the Ct River/TPC Golf Course. Several were calling, and no Common Crow calls were heard, so I'm assuming they were all FICR.

2 Pine Warblers sang throughout the morning from a White Pine stand. I know these are relatively late migrants, but isn't it a little late for that? If they were the nesting residents, would they be defending territory at this time? And I don't think migrants would sing all morning. These were adult songs, not recently-fledged birds practicing. Any ideas?
