The Hermit Warbler to which you refer was found on May 1, 1977.  Arne 
Rosengren actually saw it that morning, too, but thought it was a BT 
Green.  The next day a bunch of us went looking for it, scrambling up 
the slope above Trowbridge Drive and finally locating it in a hemlock 
tree.  Carol Bedworth and I are the only two  who are still members of 
the NHBC.  The others were the Rissers (now in Texas), the Coreys, Jim 
Reilley, Charles Hills and John Southern.  I don't know how long it 
stayed or who else might have seen it.  What a great bird!!
