5/6 - Branford Supply Ponds - Orchard Oriole, Chimney Swifts and more
It was a lovely morning at Branford Supply Ponds with mostly resident birds showing - not much in the way of migrants.
Highlights were a pair of Wood Ducks, the female sitting on top of the most obvious nest box in the first pond and the male in the water below, my first Eastern Kingbirds of the year, Worm-eating Warbler, Orchard Oriole, and numerous Blue-winged Warblers.

Noticeably absent were Indigo Bunting, Prairie Warbler and the Ruby-throated Hummingbird was not in his spot but I was pretty jetlagged so I may have missed a few things!
