Checked a few spots this morning:

Bewick's Wren and Common Yellowthroat at the Skyline Grove.

Wilson's Warbler and Swainson's Thrush at Middle Lake.

At the East Wash, the "lowlight" was a Raven consuming 4 white, Olive-Sided Flycatcher eggs as one parent dove constantly at it but could not flush it. It took all of 30 seconds. The nest is (was) on a horizontal branch of the conifer next to the round, bare tree. Perhaps a second brood will be attempted?
