A quick note about Bluff Point State Park-
Yesterday was my first visit to the park other than visiting the "hot a few years ago. What a beautiful spot! We had 52 species including 9 species of warblers(including the Yellow-breasted Chat).
We walked the entire loop of about 3 miles spending a little over 3 hours in a mostly shaded large path with marsh and Long IsIand Sound views at times. I look forward to visiting this lovely park again soon!

It took some patience but the bird was eventually heard calling and singing before teeing up on a cedar after 25 minutes. It is directly north of the island of vegetation between the two large gravel parking lots. It should be noted that Yellow-breasted chat is a rare and declining nester in New England, so no playback of song should be used.
