For those of you who didn't know, the warblers have undergone an extensive rearrangement of genuses and relationships within genuses last summer. Read Ken Kaufman's blog to learn more about it. I will use the new names going forward.
The first warbler here is the early migrating Hooded Warbler (Setophaga citrina). The male has a black hood, yellow face and underparts and olive back. The lateral tail feathers are white and the bird fans its tail frequently.Very easy to ID.
