I found a lot of migrant warblers in the oaks throughout my neighborhood 
this morning including Bay-breasted, Blackburnian, Canada and my FOY 
Blackpoll among the expected birds. Most stayed high and far, singing 
and feeding, but I got a decent shot of the Canada in one of those oaks: 

Additionally, here are a couple very close Magnolia Warbler photos from 
Noble's BioBlitz at Hammonasset this past Saturday: 

I did not have time to go elsewhere today, but I heard Boothe Park was 
very birdy, too. My experience so far this spring in western coastal 
Connecticut has been a lot of warblers, more than "normal" in recent 
years, with a solid number of kinglets, orioles and tanagers but fewer 
sightings of vireos, flycatchers and thrushes than a typical spring. 
It's been a little light on sparrows, too.

More to come!
