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.
