The Hooded Warbler can be found across North America, Central America and northern parts of South America. It has an olive / green-brown back and yellow underparts. Males have black hoods which surround their yellow faces, while females have an olive-green cap.
The Hooded Warbler is strongly territorial on its wintering grounds, where males and females each have their distinct habitats. Males prefer mature forest and females live in scrubbier forest and seasonally flooded areas.
