A striking small bird, 3″, of eastern hardwood forests, the Hooded Warbler prefers forests with some shrub understory. They are not easy to find here in Arkansas. I have a location in the Little Buffalo River bottoms where I have found the nesting for the last 5 years; these photos from a group of 85 taken 4/30/2015 ant 8 AM:

This is very early for a Barn Swallows to fledge and be fed by parents (last year was May 10th); I think this chick may have been knocked out of the nest way early, but he/she seems to be doing OK:

An early morning photo of a Red Bellied woodpecker (a male) on a stump in my front yard; he was very unafraid and must be feeding nestlings at this time; as is the female Eastern Bluebird below; she has found a fat cricket:

Got these today but I never got as close to him as I wanted. They are common migrants to Arkansas for nesting (they are here April to August). The male, like this bird, have a rusty splotch on their upper breast. Normally they are more curious and I can get up close. These taken from 80 yards:
