From Steve Broker (Cheshire):

Marsh Wren 1

Best viewing of the outer gate feeding station is from the top of the asphalt pile, peering over the side to just inside the chain link gate and fence.  Drive toward the gate, curve left toward the landfill, and pull off to the right side just beyond the asphalt pile (the East Haven police like to drive up there), well out of the way of truck traffic.

Savannah Sparrow 8 (closely associated in weedy field outside the curve of Dodge Avenue)
