My experience is that you can see Henslow's at just about anytime. They seem to be curious about people walking up the trail. Go through the intersection of Klondike Rd on Old Legislative Rd. Look for a steep trail on your left about 200 yards in and park in the clearing on your right. As you walk up that trail listen for the metallic sound of the Henslow. They are there, you just have to be patient. Back at your car, walk a little into that area. I have gotten some good warblers back in there.
