I disagree about lumping the Western. I put Cordilleran on my life list at
Crane Peak, Warner Mountains last June 2. Heard another one later that
morning
This is near where Hendrik got his, minutes from Adel.
Two weeks later l alternated drpdead perfect Pacslopes(vocalizations),
just like at my house in Manning, with undeniable Cordlerans as l drove
from the southern city limits of La Grande north through town to Hilgard
State Park then up the Grande Ronde River . I'll provide gps coordinates
when l get home. Two Cordillerans were on territory in Hilgard State Park,
easily audible above the noise of I-84. Lars
