This morning, May 29, 2017, I found a male Brewster's Warbler at the Big
Bottom Unit of Bridgestone-Firestone Centennial Wildlife Management Area
(whew!) in Van Buren County on the Cumberland Plateau. Strangely, it seemed
to be in the same territory as a male and female Blue-winged Warbler. I
found it by trying to see the bird singing "bee buzz" and was surprised to
see the Brewster's Warbler. While spending more than an hour at the
territory, I was again surprised to realize that there was a male
Blue-winged Warbler singing "bee buzz" there. I never confirmed that the
Brewster's was singing. Attached is the link to the eBird list with more
details and very poor but identifiable photos, including a habitat photo
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S37234583. A Brown-headed Nuthatch was
at the same location among widely scattered thin Loblolly Pines.
Kudos to TWRA for managing the cutover and pine plantation habitat there so
well. I was hoping and trying for Bachman's Sparrow but without success.
