12/4 - East Shore Pk; Orange-crowned Warbler



Unfortunately this was all I could muster of a cooperative Orange-crowned Warbler at East Shore Park in New Haven yesterday. Either my digibinning skills are fading or my camera's auto-focus is beginning to fail...probably the former.

Also seen at this location were a "Western" Palm Warbler and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. Now that the weather is finally getting colder, the hedgerows adjacent to the sewage treatment plant should be monitored regularly for late passerines. When few insects are still out, the warm pools seem to keep alive enough insects to attract lingering insectivores.
