A great bird indeed Judy! Thank you so much for sharing the facts concerning this bit of CT birding history, I very much appreciate this. I must say that even though I no longer am a "lister" birder, I am quite unabashedly envious of all of you!

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!!
