it's about 3/4 mile up the trail, there's a clearing on the right, it's not a field by any means, just more "open" and sunnier than the woods you were hiking through. The hooded warbler flew in from the woods on the left, landed in a snag with vines climbing up it, but didn't stay long, flew up in a tree, sang a few times then went back into the woods. That spot was the birdiest and noisiest (redstarts and chestnut-sideds and traffic noise), maybe all the noise attracted him?

Thanks for the tip. Any more details on where "the usual place" is for
those of us who have never been there? Thank you.

Don Clark and I found a hooded warbler at Whipstock Hill WMA in
the usual place as found in previous years. Should have checked the
area sooner. Bird flew in, great views, then flew back into the woods.
Good luck if you try!
