Snow Mt. late July
- There was a bit of birding that occurred on a recent (7/22-23) Sanhedrin
chapter Calif. Native Plant Society (CNPS) fieldtrip to Snow Mt.
Hiking into the red fir forest area at an altitude of approx. 5800 ft. about
an hour's walk from the Summit Springs trailhead we observed Orange-
crowned, Hermit, Nashville, Yellow-rumped and Black-throated Gray warblers
- at times many species in one tree. There were also Fox sparrows, Cassin's
vireos, Western wood pewees, Olive-sided flycatchers, White-headed
woodpecker and Red-breasted sapsucker.
PS - It was interesting to note that EVEN SLOWER than hiking botanists are
the hybrid Botanbirders who stop to look at everything. We were ALWAYS last
