Prospect : "lighting struck twice "? Connecticut Warbler

In the same spot as the sighting on September 5th thru 7th, a CONNECTICUT WARBLER resurfaced by the big Silver Maple where the concrete path ( short steps) meet the mulch trail, just up slope to the left  from the Well Drive picnic tables ( affectionately known as Lamppost 249). Dennis Hrehowsik who also saw it the first time was this morning's lucky observer.


So , it begs the question: is this bird the same from the first week of the month , "lighting striking twice"  the same spot ? Or is this spot so good for eating and hiding that Connecticuts are texting their family buddies using the Connecticut area codes 203, 860, and 475 ?

It makes me wonder......
