Hello All,

My first ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER of the year arrived in my yard today. It visited the suet at the same time two TOWNSEND'S WARBLERS were there. As far as warblers are concerned that makes four Townsend's, one Yellow-rumped and one Orange-crowned that are visiting the suet. Yesterday I saw a RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD, a male. Interestingly, it is not the first of the season for my yard. Last Thursday 16 March I noticed a female. This is the first time I have seen a female Rufous arrive ahead of a male.
