Prairie Warblers are still easy to find along power lines in southeastern
CT. They're yard birds for me here in Norwich and I hear them first thing
every morning.

Prairie Warblers are still common atop traprock ridges in Southern CT.  They
are also in suitable disturbed successional habitats.  For example in
Naugatuck, 250 years ago, that would mean a fire, possibly set by agrarian
Native Americans, followed by a few years of young tree growth.  Today it
means young tree growth behind the Route 63 Walmart.

I finnaly spotted two Yellow-rumped Warbler in Nepaug State forest in New
Hartford. Though they were always here in numbers years ago, so hard to find
today. Still missing on the power lines are Prairie Warblers - are they
still nesting in CT? and- saw not one Junco! Very unusual.
