The male Hooded Warbler sports a solid black hood, surrounding a bright yellow face. It is native to the woodlands of the eastern U.S. He flits through shrubby understories, flicking his tail to show off his white tail feathers. Because so many of my birds are portraits against a dark background, I enjoyed painting this little fellow in a bright blue sky among the leaves and blossoms of the Apple tree.
