Hartford Audubon Bird Walk in East Granby on the Rails to Trails Bike Path
from Route 20 to one mile north of Copper Hill Road.

It was a gorgeous day for a walk and the birds did not disappoint.  Within a
hundred feet of walking we heard a male HOODED WARBLER singing, the bird
dropped into view and sat perched for a good 3 minutes ­ everyone in the
group got superb looks!  Other highlights were YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER,
NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH, NASHVILLE WARBLER, and 2 VIRGINIA RAILS.  Overall 66
species (20 species of warbler) were heard and seen.
