I had one Wilson's warbler singing yesterday at Olympic High School in Silverdale. (Kitsap County).

Up in n. Lake Stevens today I had two WILSON'S WARBLERS at our place, first
of the season here and a few days ahead of average arrival over recent
years. Several other warbler species were present as well, and another
passage Hammond's Flycatcher was found, this one singing the distinctive
"se-put! tsuurp" song, kind of makes an observer feel like they are up at
some campground in the middle elevations of the Cascades. A few duck
migrants have been around also: a female Hooded Merganser was seen in
northbound overflight yesterday, my first for our place, and a female
Canvasback was noted right off southbound I-5 at the Dagmar's Landing pond,
south of Marysville near the Everett STP, this morn.

For those not covering the birdbox, many migrant passerines were reported
passing through Woodland Park by Tom Aversa yesterday, and he and Paul Hicks
in Tenino both tallied NASHVILLE WARBLERS, I believe our first for wWA so
far this spring.
