Hooded warbler.

Thanks to the assistance from other birders, we saw this hooded warbler yesterday.
He seemed determined not to have his photo taken.

Setophaga citrina
The Hooded Warbler is strongly territorial on its wintering grounds. Males and females use different habitats: males in mature forest, and females in scrubbier forest and seasonally flooded areas. If a male is removed, a female in adjacent scrub will not move into the male's territory.
