Very birdy late morning in Naugatuck, with 12 warbler species - 7 in double
digits -  plus FOY Scarlet Tanagers and Yellow-throated Vireos.  Was hoping
for cuckoos but no luck yet, last season this was a reliable spot for
both.  I was beginning to despair at the warbler #'s this spring but
they've picked up dramatically in the last couple days, today at times
confusing with so many simultaneous songs.

Protocol: Traveling
6.0 mile(s)
Comments:     Beginning on Hunter's Mtn Rd West of Old Highway, birding 1/2
mi. by car; hiked from green gate up to power cut, up the cut, then back.
Then drove up to the parking on left across from fields, hiked from there
to the dirt bike tracks and back. Did not double-count on the way back
unless it was something new, so numbers of common birds likely conservative.
