At Mercer Court (NE Boat St & NE Pacific St) Monday 11:45am.
Up the path 100 feet, out in the open, on left. On ground by itself.
After 10 minutes, lost it when I started composing this email.
At 12:15, it returned to same spot.
Thanks to Cara Borre! See her post for more info.

> My post from the field had failed, but several birders were able to observe the "Bus Stop" Palm Warbler down the street near Recycled Cycles. I found him foraging with juncos and a Townsend's Warbler in bushes and bathing in a mud puddle in a parking lot close to Recycled Cycles. I relayed this info to Asta and she brought other birders who, like us, had staked out the bus stop for hours. We all had good looks at the bird who actively foraged across the street in an area called Mercer Court. The bird was mainly on the ground in the company of juncos but also flew to nearby trees accompanied by chickadees.
