Birds active and on the move in Norwich as well. This morning we had the
following yard birds (in addition to usual suspects), with House Wren
being seen for the first time here. Many of our birds this morning were
juveniles. At least the Canada Warbler is not a local breeder.
And on the coast of Maine this week I observed several sp. of migrating
- or at least dispersing - warblers (e.g., Wilson's, Blackpoll).
