- For the information of anyone heading for the Tioga Pass area east of
Yosemite: yesterday morning (June 29, about 8 AM) I saw one or (probably)
two Gray-crowned Rosy-Finches around the green bridge, just down the
highway from the Ellery Lake dam. I didn't find any more near the dam
itself, but didn't check any further around that Lake (which was infested
by tour buses).
