Delia and I birded up at Three Forks by North Bend today. We had a nice vocalizing Pacific-slope Flycatcher by the high school, but no other new-for-us migrants. A couple Orange-crowned Warblers and Yellow-rumped Warblers in a few locations. Good numbers ofCommon Yellowthroats. The Brown-headed Cowbirds appear ready for some FOYs. Wood Ducks in three places.
I'm not well versed in the arrival data but I continue to hold my breath regarding Violet-green Swallows, of which we saw none out there. We had a few Barn Swallows, some Rough-winged Swallows and decent numbers of Tree Swallows, but no V-gs. Other than our own Violet-green Swallow pair at the house here which arrived April 3, I've only seen 3 or four in the city and very few as we bird around the west side.
