Hi all, sorry for a late post, but I have not had much for service for the past few days. As I was working/logging out a couple trails in Lassen Park, I had a pair of Pine Grosbeaks calling and foraging in the trees. I watched them for about 5 minutes and then had to get back to work. I don't know if they are hanging around there or were just passing through, but they hung around the trees for as long as I could watch. I saw them working the trees on the southeast end of Big Bear Lake where the trail runs right next to the water. This is a 4+ mile hike to Big Bear Lake from Summit Lake or 4 miles from Badger Flat, which is accessed from Forest Service land and is a little more remote and not signed at all. I saw them at approximately 0800 hrs. on Thursday morning.
