Hooded warbler

May 5, 2019, Rondeau Provincial Park,Ontario, Canada.

Normally skulking in the underbrush.
Setophaga citrina
Individual male Hooded Warblers each sing a slightly different song. They learn to recognize their neighbor's song based not only on the song itself, but also on where the song is coming from. Their ability to recognize their neighbor may mean that they have to spend less time on territory defense.
