Lake Murray continuing Palm Warbler, also Nashville and Tennessee Warblers

Went to Lake Murray late Sunday morning December 9 looking for previous reported ducks.  Was able to find 1 female Common Goldeneye and 1 female Canvasback; but did not see White-winged Scoter.  The large cottonwood trees immediately east of the boat launch facility had a host of warblers, including a Palm Warbler, which was reported on ebird recently.  There was also a Nashville Warbler and a Tennessee Warbler: small, short-tailed, mostly green warbler with white belly and undertail coverts.  Eyeline pattern similar to Orange-crowned; but more distinct.  Orange-crowned was in same tree allowing direct comparison.
