Today, Sherry and I hiked up to the Lower Skyline trail by way of Golden Gate. Most of the trail is still under snow with small patches of exposed trail. Just a little ways before the Lower Skyline junction, Sherry spotted our only WHITE-TAILED PTARMIGAN. It was about 30ft down slope in a lush meadow area. Other birds were;
Barn Swallows
Gray Jay - 1
Pine Siskin – several nice flocks
Dark-eyed Junco
Hermit Thrush - 3
American Pipit - 8
Gray-crowned Rosy Finch – 6
Yellow-rumped Warbler – 1

Marmot – 22
