Today we visited one of them - Stukel Mountain. One of the locals came with us to guide us up the mountain road, spending the entire morning showing us around. The weather was cold, drizzling, and visibility poor (my photos are all blurry and grainy). But we saw some great birds and had a very good time.
Further up, we started seeing many Gray and Dusky Flycatchers.
All along the upper roads we could hear the loud calls of Mountain Quail, but we never spotted them. Little little chipmunks were everywhere, as were Chipping Sparrows - nearly 30 of them by the time we reached the top.
