Thanks for the heads up, Nathaniel! I was not able to find the Hooded this morning, but was happy to explore a new hot spot I never noticed before! Other people also tried for it yesterday with no success. I went to Delta Park after, thinking it might be another good spot for a Hooded to drop into, but did no see or hear anyone even remotely close to one. There was, however, a Northern Waterthrush foraging along the northern most edge of the wet area (between the parking lot and northern end of the park/path to bridge).
If anyone does locate the Hooded, it would be great news!

Subject: [VTBIRD] Hooded Warbler -- Arms Forest, Burlington
Hello VT Birders!
This morning around 8:30 I spotted a Hooded Warbler in the area known as the Arms Forest off North Ave. in Burlington while leading a bird walk with several other UVM students. We all got great looks at the bird and one of the students was able to get a recording of its song. It was highly visible and singing frequently just off the trailhead located in the back of the North Ave Elks Lodge parking lot., no less than a 1/4 mile down the trail on the left side near a large vernal pool. Good luck to any that go searching for it!
