We visited Taylor Fork early this morning, driving the road to the forks of Lightening Creek and Cache Creek. Also up Wapiti Creek to the trailhead. Most interesting sighting for me was the MacGillivray’s Warbler pictured below. Other birds:
many Mountain Bluebirds including juveniles out of the box
multitudes of Tree Swallows
The water in Taylor Fork is starting to clear, but still carrying a load of Bentonite silt, perhaps accounting for no Bald Eagles or Ospreys sighted.
