West Coast Migrants and More!

Yellow throats, Tanagers and Grosbeaks all are very welcome and fairly common spring migrants. Cedar waxwings… they are here all the time, but I didn’t know where else to slot them in. Black phoebes are increasing their range yearly and spreading north and east, starting from California and the Oregon Coast. Lastly, look for olive-sided flycatchers on conspicuous snags and perches where they will return after catching a big insect. They say quick three beers, and are probably one of the easiest flycatchers to identify (besides the phoebe).
For more warblers check my last post about common wood warblers.
