After nearly a decade of scanning through flocks of migrating warblers as they move through my Bainbridge Island yard I finally saw a Nashville warbler. Well - more like it found me. During Mother's Day brunch - right outside my dinning room window in a vine maple (frequented by our resident Wilson's warblers) there was a big beautiful male Nashville. Dark head, solid bold eye-ring, yellow throat and undertail coverts - unmistakable.... but I still confirmed it wasn't a Mac Gilvary's - neither species I see often. It was much brighter than the OCWA in the tree with it. That makes species 76 for the yard. Also - within the last week we've had a switch from majority male Audubon's yellow rumps - to mostly female with some myrtles mixed in. Add Townsends, black-throated gray, and Wilson's I am at my typical year worth of warbler species.... Maybe I can coax a Yellow warbler in - does anyone make a warbler call? lol. FOY Pac slopes are back in force and had a Swainsons thrush seen and heard "whit-ing" this weekend as well. Oh - and had a white throated sparrow a few weeks ago just down the street.

Happy birding -
