I did not have the opportunity on Sunday to chase the Tennessee Warbler that had been reported by Ed and Delia in their South Seattle backyard.  Encouraged by Steve Pink's post on Tweeters yesterday, I made the trek this morning.  The Warbler was present as I arrived around 10:15 but was in front of blinding sun making a photo impossible.  As I moved to a better vantage point, it flew off with a number of other birds - mostly Sparrows.  Knowing it was still around, I stayed the course.  Jon Houghton joined me more than an hour later but the Tennessee Warbler had not returned.  Just after noon, a small flock of Bushtits arrived - the first of the day and a minute or so later, Jon spied the Warbler in a tree.  I could not see it from my vantage spot, but it was a most cooperative visitor and first posed on the fence at the rear of the yard and then took a leisurely bath giving both of us great views and photo opportunities.  Thanks to Ed and Delia for their find and their hospitality.
