- Comments: "Continuing since January 9, 2020. Last spotted April 1, 2020. Same general area as previous 2020 park records. Foraging in bottlebrush tree in east end of park (find CASA DIABLO sign in backyard—that’s the house with the feeders near the correct bottlebrush trees at fjord). I’ve recorded the bird several times in this same tree. Sometimes from a spot where the bird can easily dart to or from the deciduous tree next to it. This time I heard the bird calling. Spotted Orange-crowned Warbler, then spotted Tennessee dart onto bottlebrush tree foliage from deciduous tree (viewed from south side of stream). The two birds may have been chasing each other or foraging together. The Tennessee foraged for several seconds, hopped down along tree, and stood on a branch. After a brief moment the Tennessee darted deeper within tree. Didn’t try to follow it. Noticeable marks: Lime-colored wings/back. Head possibly greyer than last seen, though lighting was dim today. White underside. Pale yellow throat. Pale eyebrow. Dark line through eye."
