[Tweeters] Nesting Black Throated Gray Warbler?

Over the years we have seen them feeding young (including the dreaded cowbird) in Preston. Don’t know whether they actually nested in the area or were just passing through.
However this year we have some coming to our pond almost every afternoon so chances are good that they are nesting locally.

Everything I’ve been reading on them says they prefer dry habitat, with oak or juniper, but I’m 99% certain I saw a pair feeding a juvenile at the Tacoma Nature Center. Unfortunately, the juvenile looked like a Brown Headed Cowbird. They do show up as fairly widespread this time of year on E-Bird.
