I spent the morning at Naugatuck State Forest, starting at the field at the end of Hunters Mountain Rd and walking in past the pond and through the spot where a Golden-winged Warbler was seen a few years ago, then back and checked a few more spots. Highlights included 2 Blackburnian Warblers and several Hooded Warblers among 16 species (several Canada Warbler, many Magnolia Warbler, plenty of Chestnut-sided Warbler, 1 Northern Waterthrush, etc), and a heard-only Yellow-billed Cuckoo. Other FOY for me included Indigo Bunting, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Ruby-throated Hummingbird. Also had a Pileated Woodpecker, which is always welcome. (If I had looked for Louisiana Waterthrush and Pine Warbler before mid-day I probably could have gotten that up to 18 warblers.)
