Hello, looking to confirm id on this bird as Tennessee Warbler. Shrubby area around a pond, located in lower central BC.
I believe all three pictures to be of the same bird.

Thanks

I suspect these are three different birds.
Tennessee warbler has contrasting whitish vent/undertail-coverts. So... not sure about excluding Tennessee warbler in pic 1, but the others must be orange-crowned warbler.

Having given a thumbs-up to Butty's comments, I will add that I suspect the first bird is a Tennessee - the back looks the right shade of green, contrasting with the gray crown, and the relatively strongly marked face - but I would not call it without a look at the under-tail coverts.

Added another image that does show the back end a bit more....I leant toward Tennessee due to the stronger eye-line, however I guess the yellow under the tail is more Orange Crowned. It is possible they are two different birds so possibly one of each?

I did say above that I suspect the first group are three different birds.
The bird in the new photo is an orange-crowned warbler (undertail-covert colour).
