Wildflowers, but still no neotropicals

While the birds have yet to return, wildflowers are poking up the woods by my house. We have a few wooded seeps on our property, which allow some wet-loving plants to grow, like this Northern White Violet (Viola pallens):

Without warblers (other than Pine, Palm, and Yellow-rumped), I have noticed myself taking more photos and taking longer looks at things like Eastern Towhees and Hermit Thrushes.
