After a long journey back to CT yesterday from Greece, Steve Bird and I came to life mid-morning and decided to get out 
and check Branford Supply Ponds for migrants.  A singing male Scarlet Tanager was a treat and Blue-winged Warblers
were in the power cut and near the small pond.  There were a few very vocal Gnatcatchers around but otherwise a little quiet. eBird report below:
