Re: new Tennessee Warbler

Tennessee warbler continues as of 9:30 in the eucalyptus trees as described by Paul below. Approximate coordinates are (32.5812844, -117.0682951). The bird would chip loudly for a minute or two, then go silent for 10-20 minutes. Seemed to favor the south side of the larger eucalyptus in the thickest part of the foliage (of course). 

Happy New Year and Happy Birding!

On New Year's morning there is a new Tennessee Warbler in town, in Montgomery Waller Park in Otay Mesa. Take the north-south path that runs between the two large ball fields near the north end of the park and go down to near the south end of the ball fields and on the west side of the path along the western of the two ball fields are a couple blooming eucalyptus with deep red flowers. The bird seems to be hanging out in those trees and is chipping quite a bit. It gives a sweet chip that is somewhat sharp or hard in quality. Has a bunch of matted facial feathers from the eucalyptus juice, so it's obviously been there a while.
