Orange-crowned Warbler wave

For the past week-and-a-half I've been reading about the numbers of Orange-crowned Warblers flooding other birders' neighborhoods all over western Oregon, but none were coming close to my place. Today it was my turn. I heard one when I came home for lunch, and then after work I watched 5 or 6 of them working over every greening tree, shrub or fern in my small backyard. If the Swallows didn't prove that spring has arrived, these energetic little guys did.

I just had 2 of these guys just outside my dining room window one day last week! I'd never seen them before; they're very cute birds!
Great photo you took!
