Dave,I'm so green with envy.  In my part of CT, Old Greenwich,Riverside, the only warblers I've heard and seen have beena few Yellows.  That easterly wind has persisted for mostof a week.  Bring on some southerlys!!! Did have a Common Raven being chased over Shore Road inOld Greenwich this morning. Meredith SampsonOld Greenwich

Hiked a little over 17 miles in Nehantic State Forest this morning. 14
species of Warbler with best being Prothonotary. The Protho was an
aggressive singing male that flew at my face when I pished at the Norwich
Pond Boat Ramp at 07:55. A check back there at 12:45 failed to relocate it.
