Was up at our favorite volcano at around 7:30 this morning to do stairs -- but took my binocs, of course. The big maples at the northeast side of the top loop were alive with birds! In just a few minutes of watching: Wilson's, Black-throated gray, Townsend's, Yellow-rumped, Nashville and Orange-crowned warblers. Warbling and Cassin's vireos. A Hammonds flycatcher.
Also, after seeing just two Great Horned owlets in previous visits -- but having glimpses of a possible third -- finally saw all three, looking big, fuzzy and fierce.
