Visited Salmon Brook Park in the center of Granby, then spent an hour in McLean Refuge (Rt 10 entrance).  Tallied 58 species, including 17 species of warblers.  Finding 5 Canada Warblers and 2 Wilson's Warblers was a real treat.  Can't believe I didn't hear a Wood Thrush (I probably did, but forgot to write it down).  Species added at McLean are noted in parentheses.
