Abstract: The Connecticut Warbler (Oporornis agilis) is an uncommon, forest-interior, neotropical migrant that is locally distributed in the Boreal Plains and Taiga Plains ecoprovinces of northeastern British Columbia. Its distribution is linked with the distribution of mature and old-growth deciduous (mainly aspen) forests with shrubby understories. Very few data exist on populations, habitat use, or breeding ecology. Existing data suggest that it will not occur in logged areas until forests regenerate to the late pole stage (30-40 years after harvesting). The Connecticut Warbler is severely threatened in the northeast by plans to harvest mature and older aspen stands for pulpwood. Although it can be fairly common in suitable habitat, most of its habitat is targeted for harvesting. Because of the short rotations forecast for second passes, none of the harvested stands will be allowed to return to older age-classes preferred by this warbler. Because of its restricted distribution, small populations, and serious threats
