Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch (Leucosticte tephrocotis) (17)
- Reported Aug 19, 2020 10:40 by Kevin Spencer
- Crater Lake NP--Garfield Peak Trail, Klamath, Oregon
- Map:
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&<q...>,-122.1217489&<ll...>,-122.1217489
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S72604436
- Comments: "Quiet at top of Garfield Peak. On descent, reached level area
north of summit after the first section of down. Looking south towards
peak. First alerted to their presence by calls. Saw loose flock of about 17
moving around on rough steep/cliff area below summit. They would land on
rocks for a short time then fly a short distance to another nearby rock in
the steep area. The flock seemed nervous, possibly due to accipiters moving
through the area. They were quite distant to get any details, but roughly
House Finch size, overall dark, a brownish gray in color. When landing
their wings flashed in the sunlight. They were vocal in flight with calls
unlike other local finch species. Recorded; will upload any louder
portions. They have been seen and heard along this trail on previous
visits."
