Just writing to recommend Steam Mill Brook WMA as a near NEK location
curiously unknown and neglected by birders. When I was doing Black-backed
Woodpecker work there, I found a nesting pair of them, consecutive
territories of Blackpoll Warblers in the more or less boreal habitat along
Brook, (many other warbler species). In the same habitat, many Townsend's
Thrushes singing, replacing Hermit Thrush as the most commonly heard thrush.
