On Saturday Nick Komar, Austin Hess and I joined forces to search for the Pacific Wren that Francis had found earlier in the week. After several hours of enjoyable searching, where we heard several Canyon Wrens sounding their cascading call and found at least 3 American Three-toed Woodpeckers, our team finally located the elusive little bugger! We were strung out on the trail heading down when Nick and Austin heard a sharp "csik csik" coming from the small creek down below the trail. I never heard it but fortunately, I was in the best position to get close to the stream and did so, close to where Austin thought it might be. After a few minutes Nick finally spotted it and I was able to capture some good pictures of it... go team!
For those interested in searching, concentrate on the small creek that flanks the Summit Trail on the right as you climb up towards Greyrock. The trail crosses this small stream twice, lower on the trail and in the place Francis described. I would recommend searching this section of the creek. We found it downstream of the area Francis described. Thanks and Good luck,
