[Tweeters] TEWA stakeout reaches new level of misery

Hi all,
Just as we were giving up on the Tennessee Warbler as a gone-forever-bird, it was spotted today at 12:05 working the brush behind the creek by Laurel Parshall, Diane and Faye of the Willetttes  and also by Garrett and Al.
The bad news is it didn't take a bath, and it never came back to bathe today, either.  This implies that the foundational belief that this bird needs a bath every day in Butyl Creek may not be true and the premise of the stakeout is reduced to hoping that the bird will just happen by foraging.  While many have seen this bird, a great many have invested long hours and come away with no sighting at all, and in lieu of the bird needing to bathe, I don't see how it will get any better.
At least it has given rise to a new poster which will be on hand here by Monday and available on my website that will be titled "The Great Miserable 2019 Beacon Hill TEWA Stakeout." 

Anyone who has read all these warnings and still wants directions is welcome to email us at ednewbold1 at yahoo.com

Best wishes,
Ed and Delia
