I had a warbler singing in my woods for a long while last year, and I couldn't pin-point it.  Some told me Magnolia, but I heard Hooded.  Turned out to be a nesting pair!


Peterson's Warblers  is great of song variations.

> I was at the Bent of the River yesterday and also had two Hooded Warblers calling/singing an alternate song. They seemed to be trying to determine who would win the female and the territory (only enough room for one.) I found them just beyond the barn in the old apple orchard.
> As we know many warblers do sing an alternate song at some point in the season. This may be an under reported song for Hooded warblers. I have also noticed Baltimore Orioles often sing an alternate song when they first arrive on territory.
> Good birding to you all.
