On 27 September a Magnolia Warbler was on the west side of Tinemaha Reservoir, in the small cottonwoods 200 meters south of where Tinemaha Creek enters the reservoir. The bird was thought to be an immature male because it showed distinct black streaking along the sides and flanks but not as distinct as in an adult male. The characteristic tail with the distal half black and the basal half white was well seen. This is in the middle of its "expected" (though not every year) occurrence from mid Aug to early Nov.
