5/28 Lake Mohegan, Fairfield

The big highlight of my hike was actually completely unrelated to birds, in the form of an Eastern Box Turtle crossing the path down by the powerline cut. I've always wanted to see these guys in the wild but until now I never had. What a fascinating creature! Birds included:

1 Double-crested Cormorant
1 Willow Flycatcher
4 Great Crested Flycatchers
1 White-eyed Vireo
2 Blue-winged Warblers
1 Chestnut-sided Warbler
2 Worm-eating Warblers
12 American Redstarts
2 Scarlet Tanagers
2 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks
