Evidence of Spring

Yellow-rumped (Audubon's) Warbler female
Happy to be back in Oregon again where Spring is breaking out in spite of frequent interruptions of cool, rainy days. But the new (alternate) plumage showing up on some birds, such as these Yellow-rumped Warblers I saw yesterday, is undeniable evidence that it's coming. I have to remind myself not to keep wishing it would hurry, knowing that soon enough we will be look back at it from summer.
