A Welcome Spring Visitor

Here are a couple of pics of a Hooded Warbler that visited a favorite birding spot of mine a couple of weeks ago.  Quite low light on a cloudy early morning, so I apologize for the grain and poor detail.

Nesting Birds of Missouri – Hooded Warbler

Weeta-weeta-wee-teo!

The male Hooded Warbler’s song can be heard within the Ozark National Scenic Riverways longer into the heat of the day than many other songbirds.  This guy, singing alongside quite a few other males occupying adjacent territories, was photographed on the Greer Spring Trail this spring.
