[Tweeters] Discovery Park woods (Seattle -- no unusual species)

After a little flurry of activity in my not-usually-busy yard this morning, I went to Discovery Park, where woods near the north parking lot had all this in one flock.

Anna's Hummingbird
Black-capped Chickadee
Chestnut-backed Chickadee
Brown Creeper
Red-breasted Nuthatch
Bewick's Wren
Song Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco
Hutton's Vireo
Warbling Vireo
Golden-crowned Kinglet
American Robin
Orange-crowned Warbler
Yellow Warbler
Black-throated Gray Warbler
Wilson's Warbler
Western Tanager

I heard but didn't see what were probably a couple more species. Then nearby, I found a couple of Yellow-rumped Warblers newly back. Although we don't have the diversity of migrants, the action reminded me of being back East during migration. (I was perhaps lucky there weren't a few dozen Bushtits to make searching more difficult.)
