Hooded Warbler

I recently returned from a two week vacation to the Southern Appalachian States (Tennessee, Georgia, and North & South Carolinas). I was hoping to get some pics of the many warblers found in that area that we don't see often around Northern Illinois.  I heard and saw many birds, but was very disappointed in my picture opportunities. Those Southern Appalachian birds are very tricky and hide very well. I did manage a few decent pics. The one below is of the very striking Hooded Warbler; I spotted in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park (Tennessee side) near Abrams Falls.
