Hooded Warbler

Now we live down in the steamy Carolinian zone of southern Ontario, I was looking forward to some more regular encounters with Hooded Warblers, but I wasn't expecting one quite yet! We came across this little cracker at Confederation Park in Hamilton this morning. It gave a great performance, even giving some short bursts of song. The first significant arrival of warblers occurred only yesterday and the stormy weather overnight seems to have pinned many of them down until this morning. Other warblers were Yellow-rumped, Palms and Pines. Other stuff included a Brown Thrasher, an Eastern Towhee, lots of Chipping and many White-throated Sparrows. Bring it on.
