At  3:00, I heard a warbler song that I thought was a Chestnut-sided Warbler. Luckliy, I finally tracked the bird down and was extremely delight to see a Hooded Warbler. It was singing frequently. Simply park at the entrance area off Beacon St. Then go over the footbridge to the four-way intersection (a rather short walk. Take a right towrds the off-leash dog park. A short way down, listen for the song. When I first saw it, it was up a bit on the ridge on the left. It looked to be hawking insects. this was about sixty feet up in some trees. A little bit later, the bird was singing from the swamp just on the right side of the path.
