This afternoon as I was finishing up my (informal) leps/odes survey of upper Garden Canyon, I stopped at one of my usual spots and was distracted by a song I haven't heard in over 10 years. It sounded just like a Hooded Warbler and, sure enough, as I looked up in the trees, there was a male HOODED WARBLER. I saw it well for a few seconds but barely got two documentation photos and they are poor but I think they show enough for verification. It immediately flew down into the thick vegetation next to the creek and vocalized the typical Hooded Warbler song a few more times before I lost it. I stayed there for a good half hour hoping it would reappear for decent photos but I did not see it again. The time was around 12:15 pm. The location is maybe a tenth of a mile before the Sawmill parking lot where there is water running down the dirt road. The bird was on the creek-side of the road (left) as you go toward the parking lot. I'll put the photos on my eBird checklist later tonight.
