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:

Drove over to Boxley on Monday and spent an hour at the mill pond. Watched ducks, catbirds, red-winged blackbirds, Vireos, and a few warblers including Common Yellow Throated, and Louisiana waterthrushes. It was nice an cool, after the thundershowers. The mill pond is full of grass and the rains of the week (3 inches) have added needed water to it. I was thinking how much Common Yellowthroats and Carolina Wrens are the same. They both spend their time along brushy fencerows; both seems to be on a constant hunt for spiders and other flying insects, they are nearly the same size; and their song is much the same. Both species are curious and will come to see “whats up” when you stop near them. The big difference is their appearance ! The photos below were taken Monday morning with a Canon 50D and a 400mm lens; handheld.
