Lyme: Gungy Rd Powercut never disappoints. In addition to the usual suspects like Blue-winged Warbler, the highlights were 2 Yellow-billed Cuckoos providing excellent looks, 1 Orchard Oriole,
1 Least Flycatcher, 1 Black-and-white Warbler, a flock of Cedar Waxwings, and 3 Yellow-throated Vireos. The Least Flycatcher was actually heard on the road just south of the powercut.
Mt. Archer Land Conservancy, on Mt. Archer Rd, off MacIntosh Rd, had most of the common nesting species plus 2 Cerulean Warblers on the road itself and 2 Hooded Warblers. We had four woodpeckers species, too: Downy, Hairy, Red-bellied, and Pileated. And close looks at a low perched E. Wood Pewee sallying out for insects. And lots of singing Rose-breasted Grosbeaks.
Joshuatown Rd, just before it turns onto RT. 156, right near the little pond, had a YB Cuckoo, Baltimore Orioles and Orchard Oriole.
