Wed. April 23: I picked up signals from two Condors, briefly, in the
morning: OR199 and W219 must have taken a short morning excursion
north from Hopper Mountain. Their signals were weak and lasted only
an hour. No more Condor activity all day.
The House Finches at the lookout have been attempting to set
up ‘house’ in the gutters and behind the shutters of the lookout.
I’ve liberated three lucky ones and ‘buried’ three not-so-lucky ones.
The flowers are still blooming on the way up to the summit and most
of the birds I see are in pairs. Must be SPRING!
Bye ’til next week,
