Miss Doss and students birders Cleo Conk '15, Josh Fusaro '17 and Simon Winter '17 captured two Connecticut Warblers (Oporornis agilis), a first on Skiff Mountain after more than a decade of banding birds!  "The Connecticut Warbler was named after the state where the first specimen was collected. The species does not breed in Connecticut, nor is it a common migrant there.
