This morning, while listening to multiple Mourning and Chestnut-sided 
Warblers (among an overwhelming chorus of crooners) on Blue Hill Trail in 
Sherburne Refuge, a probable Hooded Warbler broke in with 3-4 lines of song.

I say "probable" because the song was a bit variant from "wheety, wheety, 
wheety-o" - took a bit of time to work through my consciousness (I only hear 
this bird once a year or so) - shut down when I pished - and never made a 
physical appearance.

The song did come from the area where a single male Hooded has hung out two 
of the last four years - left side of the trail, 100 feet or so past the 
first left turn, about 10 minutes in as the birder walks.

Sometimes I hate "probables"....
