A friend and I located a singing male HOODED WARBLER today at Afton State Park. A few days ago, on the 7th, I got great views of a male PROTHONOTARY WARBLER there as well. Both of these species were present during nesting season last year, though the Hooded Warbler was in a different location today: past the bridge on the way to the lower picnic area and down the trail to the left.
Other birds of note were a BARRED OWL, BLUE-HEADED VIREO, YELLOW-THROATED VIREO, and nine other warbler species--including a lone BLUE-WINGED WARBLER. Two friends met us there and were also able to observe the Hooded Warbler. We did not hear or see the Prothonotary Warbler today.
