Look for the trash can for the general area , along the woods trail along the lakeside. Both the woods left and right were COWA turf.
This Connecticut greatly overshadowed a MOURNING WARBLER reported by Matthew at the east side of Terrace Bridge seen earlier than COWA, in the breeze Hill section at 7am. And add to this rare warbler, HOODED WARBLER, a female in the Vale Cashmere reported by Rafael where he also saw , along with Rob Bate a perched BROADWINGED HAWK in the Vale.OLIVE -SIDED FLYCATCHER reported by Ed Crowne's BBC walk , over the Lookout Hill "switchback" trail , same as yesterday's report. YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO also made a quality list, seen by Ann Murray and Bobbi Manian along the Center Drive between the Cemetery main gate and Lookout Hill's west slope.
A good day for warblers, my unaware of it a northwest wind day due to a busy Friday for me.

Comments: After a Connecticut Warbler was reported in the Peninsula area, I went there, and joined forces with Peter D., Keir R., Rob B, Dennis, and others. No luck with the COWA.
