East Rock Park - w/ Mark Scott, Dori Sosensky, and Ed Sadowski
17 species of warbler reported including blackpoll (1 at archery field and 1 on trowbridge), Blackburnian (1 near museum area and 1 or 2 on trowbridge), Nashville, Prairie, and Blue-winged.
Other birds included 2 yellow-throated vireos, 1 blue-headed vireo, and 2 least flycatchers.
The birds were very active early but the action all stopped shortly after the rain ended.
It looks like the ravens fledged as there looks to be a family group sitting on the top of the East Rock cliff.
