In our yard the House Finches fledged a couple of weeks ago and the Bewick's Wrens fledged yesterday. The Bushtit parents were still bringing food to the nest yesterday, though I've not seen them today. I discovered an active Brown Creeper nest in Seward Park earlier in the week when an adult left a nest of cheeping young. Also found the remains of a crow egg in Seward the same day.

I have had coopers hawks, violet green swallows, and a pacific slope
flycatcher all abandon nesting in the last 3 weeks. I am wondering if this
is local or a region wide response to the colder than usual spring? I have
seen fledgling towhees, juncos, winter wrens and song sparrows this week so
the residents who started early seem to be coping.
