More spring migrants and breeders

I found 76 species of birds including 21 species of warblers at the Trout Brook Valley Conservation Area of the Aspetuck Land Trust on May 8. It was another dark and dreary sort of day, far from a photographers dream amongst a sea of leaves, but here are some shots from the journey:

 Blue-winged Warbler

 Eastern Kingbird

 Field Sparrow, multiple pairs breeding in orchard

 Scarlet Tanager, many back on territory now

 Tons of Worm-eating Warbler singing from high perches on territory in the darkened forest

Another Worm-eating

Many more birds to come as the conservation department accumulates loads of baseline data...
