Noun[edit]

Tennessee (plural Tennessees)

  1. The Tennessee warbler, Oreothlypis peregrina.
    • 2005, Bill Thompson III et al., Identify Yourself: The 50 Most Common Birding Identification Challenges, Houghton Mifflin Company, →ISBN, page 303:
      The Nashville's cousin, the Tennessee warbler, is just as badly named: neither can be found in Tennessee, except during migration. Tennessees vary a lot in fall; some are almost pure white below, mimicking spring plumage, while immatures like the one pictured on page 304 can be quite yellow below.
