Posts Tagged ‘Hooded Warbler’

Closest I ever got to a (very hard to find) Hooded Warbler and I think one of the best portraits of a bird I ever took; was within 20 feet of him; came back with 100 mosquito bites and a dozen ticks – now removed:

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:

Its only the 4th time in 3 years i’ve seen a Hooded Warbler here in NW Arkansas. I photographed him on Thursday at 10:35 AM in the Little Buffalo River bottom field across the river.┬áHe is a striking small bird of eastern hardwood forests, the Hooded Warbler prefers forests with some shrub understory.

Cool Fact

  • The Hooded Warbler is strongly territorial on its wintering grounds. Males and females use different habitats: males in mature forest, and females in scrubbier forest and seasonally flooded areas. If a male is removed, a female in adjacent scrub will not move into the male’s territory.

Photo taken with a Canon 50D with a Canon EF400 DO IS lens from about 25′ and I got about 100 insect bites for my effort.
