Louisiana Waterthrush singing again

After an absence of several weeks of no singing a Louisiana Waterthrush was singing loudly this morning here at home.  I had seen a few of them over the last few weeks and had them chipping at me but this is the first singing for quite some time.  Reminds me of spring all over again!

Hooded Warbler back

Hooded Warbler, Quabbin, July 1, 2012
On Sunday I decided to try again for the Hooded Warbler on the west side of Quabbin. After an absense of a few weeks the male was back singing in the same spot he had been in all spring this year as well as last year. Although difficult to get a good view of I did manage a few marginal photos. There was still no sign of sucessful nesting but I certainly hope he was successful this year.  Lots of other warblers this morning too.
