Excellent posts Steve, Thank you! Regarding Yellow-rumpeds, I think it just came down to food availability. In all my CT hiking this winter I have only come across 2 or 3 since November. On an average year I would have turned up dozens over that time.

From Steve Broker (Cheshire):

Part 4. Wood-warblers through Old World Sparrows

Wood-warblers:  This was an unusually big year for the parulid, with 8 species being recorded.  Most notable were Black-and-white Warbler, Orange-crowned Warbler, and Nashville Warbler at New Haven, Pine Warbler at Barkhamsted (1), Trail Wood (1), and Salmon River (1 - new to that count).  Common Yellowthroat, Palm Warbler, and Yellow-Breasted Chat also were represented.  But, what's going on with Yellow-rumped Warbler with just 18 counted statewide?  This is a 30-year low total, and it's in sharp contrast with the 442 seen a year ago.
