Robley - They were talking about the Elfin Woods Warbler in Puerto  Rico.

About  two weeks ago the NewYorkTimes had an article on the species, bird
and  animal, that are now candidates for federal protection under a new
go-ahead  program.  Among those pictured is the "elf wood-warbler," a small
gray  streaked bird.  Have I missed something in my American bird books?
For  one thing, we do not have wood-warblers here.  European bird books  do
not list this..  I wonder if it is a scam of the kind set up to  vilify
Acorn two years ago, when a couple claimed support for a  prostitution ring
they asked Acorn to fund, thereby exposing the liberal  organization as one
not to be trusted.  Anyone know anything about the  "elf wood-warbler"?
