Check Larry Hubbell's Union Bay Watch for photos of a palm warbler in Seattle.  Including the Edmonds bird, I wonder how many different palm warblers we are seeing.

I was driving by at 11:15 this morning, Saturday, 12/21/13, so I stopped by Mercer Court (NE Boat St & NE Pacific St), and walked up the path on the northeast corner of the intersection, a path marked by a 10-foot tower labeled "Mercer Court" and a 10-foot bright blue tower labeled "Emergency." The PALM WARBLER was on the ground on the left of the path, foraging in the dirt and bark chips. I noticed it when I reached the twin 3-foot high bright yellow posts in the path. The small bird blends in well with the ground cover, but it is in constant motion, so take a few minutes scanning the patch left of the path, and if it's there, you should see it.

That's exactly where I saw the same bird on Monday, Dec 16.
