Hooded Warbler a Moose

I spent today closer to home visiting Quabbin Park and various Quabbin gates along the west side of the reservoir.  There was certainly more migration in evidence overnight as there were good numbers of birds around again today.  The highlight of the day was finding a male Hooded Warbler back in the same area it was in last year where breeding was suspected.  The number of species today topped 90 with a total of 21 species of warbler.  Not much else to add beyond it being yet another fine day to be out birding around Quabbin.  I chased down several Blue-winged Warblers today and all turned out to indeed be this species.
