From Patrick Comins:
05/09/12 - Southbury, Bent of the River Audubon Sancutary -- apparent
GOLEDN-WINGED WARBLER near the barn, along the river. In the spirit
of caution, I can't rule out Brewster's from my view, as I didn't see
face or throat, but bird was white below, singing away and had big
golden or perhaps white chevrons in the wings.

50 yards from the parking lot.
