Hermit Warbler at Roswell, New Mexico
Hermit Warbler at Roswell, New Mexico.-On the morning of May 8, 1955, I observed a lone Hermit Warbler (Dendroica occident&s) at Roswell, New Mexico, which I tentatively identified as a female. I returned later that day to the site of observation and took the bird for a record specimen. The skin was sent to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, where J. W. Aldrich reported that as far as known the only other definite previous records for the Hermit Warbler for the state are a female specimen in the United States National Museum, taken on August 3, 1908, at 8000 feet on Animas Peak, and two specimens in the Peet collection at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, taken on September 13 and 19, 1927, at Reserve. Both places are near the Arizona line and approximately 200 air miles west of Roswell, which is in the Pecos Valley.- VESTER MONTGOMERY, Roswell, New Mexico, August 17, 1955.
