With the weather change the last few days, a few of our local nesters have been moving around. Last Sunday, July 20th, an ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER was along the edge of the little pond by the Marysville YMCA--clearly a local migrant as they don't nest here. Today, we had a YELLOW WARBLER in the yard--not a breeder here, and normally only around in fall (rare in spring too). We also had a high of four RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRDS here today, busily attending the showy Policeman's Helmet (Impatiens glandulifera) at the yard's edge. For about a week now, we've had 1-2 PINE SISKINS, the first I've had in a long while here. Lots of evidence of breeders (PAC-SLOPE FLY, HUTTON'S VIREO, W. TANAGER) in the yard also lately.
