    DATE: Oct 1, 2017 @ 6:34pm, 16 day(s) ago
    Sun 1 Oct
    
    This morning I had a Tennessee Warbler in the east-side Firewheel Tree in back of unit #5119.  Lat, Lon = 34.020253, -118.357158
    
    While the possibility exists that this TEWA is one of two birds seen in the west-side Firewheel ~10 days ago and then moved 0.3 mile to the current location, that likelihood is slight.

  19. Tennessee Warbler at Natural History Museum LINK
    DATE: Jul 26, 2017 @ 6:39pm, 3 month(s) ago
    An adult (AHY) Tennessee Warbler was in the Nature Gardens at the Natural History Museum in Exposition Park this morning (26 July) -- loosely with an Orange-crowned in the various trees both west and east of the north entrance bridge. Quite unseasonal,
    but recall that one was present July-September 2014 at Hahamongna, so it's not entirely unprecedented. I'm guessing this was not the same bird that was across the street at Jesse Brewer Park on24 May, as this area gets covered regularly.

  29. Tennessee Warbler in Exposition Park LINK
    DATE: May 24, 2017 @ 9:34am, 5 month(s) ago
    Just now (Weds., 24 May 0920 hr) there was a male Tennessee Warbler singing away in Jesse Brewer Park, which is the small corner park at Vermont Ave. and Exposition Blvd. It was sticking to the diagonal line of (yellow-flowering) Tipu trees
    that runs NE to SW through the small park. Loosely with it was a Yellow Warbler and a Warbling Vireo (as opposed to zero migrants across the street in the Natural History Museum Nature Gardens).
    
    Parking is $12 unless you can find metered or free parking a couple of blocks away. But the Expo Line stop (Vermont Station) is right across the street.
