Hooded Warbler

My face still hurts after this one but don’t worry, I’ll be okay. It was totally worth it! I was already having a warblertastic day, the theme being: how could this day get any better? Followed each time by fancier, more cooperative birds; the final bird being this amazing, surprisingly cooperative Hooded Warbler. I spent the next two hours walking around the Celery Bog with the dopiest grin on my face, stopping every few feet to check the photo on my camera and confirm that it actually happened. I wonder how many birds I missed while I was doing that. People walking by were giving me the strangest looks as they hurried past. What gives, huh? Oh yeah, dopey grin! Totally worth it!
