Subject: [Tweeters] More FOYs this week - orange and white
Hi Tweets,

I was thrilled this morning to hear my FOY Rufous Hummingbird zooming
around. In a few moments, I was able to catch a glimpse of him foraging
across the yard, although by the time I ran back inside to get my camera,
heıd left. Hopefully in the next few days Iıll be able to share a photo.

A few days earlier, on Sunday 3/12, I had my first sighting of a
White-crowned Sparrow, not only a FOY but a new yard bird since we moved
into our house in Aug 2014. It was fun seeing it foraging alongside a
Golden-crowned Sparrow ­ not a FOY, but on the rare side for our yard.
That same day I had both Audubonıs and Myrtle Yellow-rumpeds at my feeder
as well‹what a great day.

While Iım writing, I want to publicly thank Seattle Audubon, and
particularly Toby Ross and David Garcia, for managing the repair of my
Swarovskis. I bought them probably more than 25 years ago and theyıd never
been cleaned or repaired. Toby volunteered that SAS could take care of
sending them to Swarovski, who offers a limited lifetime warranty, for
only a minimal charge. I was amazed when Swarovski, true to their
warranty, repaired and cleaned them without cost, including a new casing
and new covers for both ends. (I did, happily, pay a bit for two scratched
lenses to be replaced.) When I picked them up, David and volunteer Penny
were a pleasure to talk with in person. An all-around terrific experience.
Thanks, folks.

Good birding to all,
Trileigh
