Greg's outstanding "Connecticut Birds By The Season" is, as Mark said, an invaluable tool for understanding seasonality in our state. The good news I have to add is that you can download it from the COA web site!
The web page for The Connecticut Warbler is http://ctbirding.org/pubs.htm. The COA provides all but the most recent years of the Warbler as free downloads from there. The specific issue in question is Volume 25 (2005) (http://ctbirding.org/Warbler/CTWarblerVolume25.pdf). And there is a downloadable index covering all the issues! Each pdf file covers all four issues of the Warbler for a year; in that file the seasonal guide comes first.
New issues are sent to members quarterly, one of the most valuable benefits of COA membership. Why not consider joining if you haven't already? See http://ctbirding.org/join.htm for the details.

Greg is away right now so I am acting in his stead to remind everyone of the wonderful list he put together of the seasonal dates for bird arrivals and departures and published by the COA.
This is an incredible work that is worth reviewing each spring and fall, or when you are thinking of reporting birds that are out of season.
Don't know what is in or out of season? No better reason to review Greg's list.
Sure, strange things can happen, but they usually don't....lets not get ahead of ourselves.
