Tweets - Rufous Hummingbirds are not far behind.  Today, Ollie Oliver found 
a female RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRD on a nest near the Rowing Club parking lot at 
Marymoor West.  She may still be building the nest, as she was seen visiting 
the nest for about 1 minute every ten minutes or so, and the time I saw her 
she did a lot of squirming and some poking.  This *seems* really early for 
RUHU nesting to me, especially as we only saw our first males last
