5/18/16 -- East Rock Park, New Haven/Hamden -- from many observers -- best birding was on the road to the summit (Farnam Drive, not marked) uphill from the blocked-off Trowbridge Drive circle; and along the connector road between the East Rock Road/Livingston Street intersection and Whitney Avenue. Two gray-cheeked sp. thrushes and 21 species of warbler were reported, including Tennessee (aforesaid connector), Cape May (Farnam Drive), hooded (old archery field), Canada (various places) and Wilson's (small park adjoining connector and Orange Street bridge area). At least two Blackburnian warblers were still present, noticeably fewer than yesterday. Bay-breasted warbler was not reported today. A black-billed cuckoo was found on Farnam Drive as well.
Marginal Way, West Haven -- Tennessee and Wilson's warblers
Neighborhood, New Haven -- Tennessee warbler
Yard, New Haven -- fewer species and individuals than yesterday but Canada and magnolia warblers remain. Nine warbler species in all.
