Article on the Hermit Warbler in BC Now Available
A detailed article on the status and occurrence of the Hermit Warbler (Setophaga occidentalis) in British Columbia, by Rick Toochin, is now available. Rick writes that the Hermit Warbler is a "secretive species of warbler that breeds in coniferous forests from western Washington State (the Olympic Peninsula), east of the Olympic Mountains, rarely at the southern end of Puget Sound, south through the Cascades into western Oregon south through the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and in the coast ranges of Marin Count". He adds: "In British Columbia, this species occurs as a casual vagrant and there have been 30 records of Hermit Warbler recorded with all records coming from coastal areas of the Province."
