This morning a couple of friends and I headed up to Stony Pass (Wigwam Creek Area).  The first birds we saw were these Western Tanagers:

There were lots of Pine Siskins.  There was also lots of thistle!

We saw a family of Mountain Bluebirds.  Here’s one of the juveniles:

Toward the end of our time there, we finally saw our two target birds.  Both were feeding young in net cavities.
