Tweeters,
Just had an ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER in a big blooming forsythia on the
south overlook at Carkeek Park (the grassy area where the sign says
"crest," and along the fence of the nearby houses).
Other interesting birds: a flock of 50 BRANDT bathing in the outflow of
the river.
Also Rufous Hummer, several singing Townsend's Warblers, and a rather
large flock (>100?) of Pine Siskins is still hanging out in a raucous,
lively group.

Fun plants - bleeding hearts are starting to bloom, as well as some
trillium.
Happy spring,
Anya Illes
