Definitely a gorgeous morning out there. I too had two early BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLERS here at Tiny's Land in n. Lake Stevens, close to the earliest date we've had. Also of note in the warbler category were 6 COM. YELLOWTHROATS under the utility lines by adjoining Van Klavern's Nursery, a high count for us. More surprising than either was a PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER (FOS), my earliest-ever here by two days, the best of 33 species found at the place this morn.

Unusual yesterday, right next to I-5, an OSPREY was just over ground level by Dagmar's Landing, there was no water at the site so I figured the bird was looking for nesting materials. Another bird was seen yesterday also soaring above the Ballard bridge.
