Immature female Hooded Warbler
The distribution of dark- and light-colored feathers around the face doesn't quite fit a Hooded in my mind
Another vote for 1st year Female Hooded. Not just a longer bill than Wilsons, but also the dark lores give it away.Where was this shot? Most of Texas is outside the standard range, but still well within the extralimital migration range.
Photographed late September or early October.
Badknees is correct. Quintana Neotropical Bird Sanctuary. Now I am curious whether HMoD will pull a rabbit out of a hat with an alternative to hooded. Cheers,Imre
