There we spied two (2) Sagebrush/Bell's Sparrow dashing on the ground with their tails cocked up. The one we were able to photograph was the Sagebrush Sparrow.

However, we missed Williamson's Sapsucker. The road across from Pioneer Mail Trailhead yielded four (4) Lewis's Woodpecker fly-catching from the tall snags in the area.
