Swantown Hill Road off of Route 2 in North Stonington was full of good birds
this morning. I went to see if the hooded warblers had returned. They
have. But the biggest surprise was that I heard a CERULEAN WARBLER. It was
well back in the forest behind some pines and frustratingly I couldn't
manage to see it. I did have my iphone so confirmed the song on the Sibley
app. Also of note: worm-eating, pine, blue-winged warblers, and Acadian
flycatchers. The entire list will be on ebird.
I first visited this spot more than 10 years ago with Bob Dewire and try to
visit every spring. Bob told me that ceruleans used to nest there, but I
have never heard or seen one there. Has anyone else? I hope they will
become regular at this location again.
