Sorry for the late report. This day got away from me.

Steve Bird and I birded our new patch this morning off Hosley Avenue in
Branford.  The upper "Hiking" parking lot of the Lake Saltonstall recreational
area is open with east facing tamarack trees along the edge and is good
sometimes when the morning light hits it.  Highlights were Cape May Warbler,
Canada Warbler and several Magnolias.  A Water Company permit is required to
visit this property. Info at
