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.
