The Cape May Warbler, Setophaga tigrina, gets his name from the location of Cape May, New Jersey, where it was first described as a species. However, this is a matter of confusion for many people, as the Cape May Warbler only passes through the area of Cape May during its fall migration! Its species name, tigrina, is derived from the Latin tigris, meaning “tiger,” perhaps named for his stripes.
