Louise P. Tucker:
5/11/12 - Hurd State Park (East Hampton?) -- To the left of the small parking area above the trail leading down to the Connecticut river are 2 old dirt roads.  On the lower road (closest to the river) is a yellow gate. Approximately 200-300 feet from the gate is a Hooded Warbler singing on territory, which is on both sides of the road. He circles this territory, singing.
Here, I also saw a Scarlet Tanager, low in a bush. I think he must be a very recent migrant to stay so low.
