Hooded Warbler at Lake Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on April 27, 2021

A stop at Lake Park gave distant views of a Hooded Warbler. While walking across the foot bridge just south of the statue I spotted directly below a Hooded Warbler. From there it moved and rested for a period of time, on a fallen log laying in the ravine. It must of had a long journey as it rested for close to 30 minutes with it’s eyes closed most of the time. I took a shot from a distance and that was it. Other warbler species I saw at the park were Yellow-rumped and Palm. It was a cold morning on the lakefront with good wins from the north. I was dress for March weather. Image was taken on April 27, 2021.

    Incredibly beautiful bird, Jim – all the exhaustion you mention present in that small body, on his expressive face. A journey none of us could accomplish on our own. You’ve captured courage, determination, purpose – resting on an old fallen log. Awesome!
