Michael Kiessig and I had 3 Brewer’s Sparrows at the summit of Guanella Pass, Clear Creek Co. today (June 25). One bird was seen singing and was accompanied by another bird; presumably they were a pair. Another bird was heard singing, but not seen. All three individuals were along the Rosalie Trail, which goes south from the Guanella Pass summit. The birds were in the area near the signboard at the border of the Mt. Evans Wilderness Area, a short distance after the start of the Rosalie Trail. The birds were seen in willow thickets just above timberline; the elevation of the summit is 11,889 ft (according to the signboard).
