Birds of spring

This morning's Tweetershas several signs of spring's approach. Blue Grouse have been heard booming in the Olympic Mountains, a turkey vulture was spotted over Bainbridge Island, and at Molbak's Nursery in Woodinville, an Anna's Hummingbird has set up a nest in a Camelia that had been for sale. She laid two eggs, which hatched on March 8 and 9. The store management now has the tree roped off, but it's possible to approach within four feet, for a closer look.
