All is well in the Sierras. We’ve been training for 1.5 weeks now and have seen 103 bird species between Yosemite and South Lake Tahoe. Some highlights for me have been Great Gray Owl (lifer), Yellow-headed Blackbirds (only seen once before in a parking lot), and Black-throated Gray Warbler (they are just so cute). But I have so many favorites! We have another week to go before we actually start work doing point counts.
