Hi Tweets,

Just to add to the Gr. White-fronted Goose sightings. On the way to Paradise today had a flock of over 300 on the Mountain Highway just north of Dean Kreger Road, with a few Canada & Cackling Geese mixed in. On the return I checked out the turn off at the Ohop Grange that takes you to the south edge of Silver Lake and had a different group of around 200 with a few Cqckling Geese mixed in.

No Ptarmigan seen today at Paradise, but we did get a consolation chicken of three Sooty Grouse on the edge of the trail, along with the friendliest Hoary Marmots I've ever experienced. I had to move off the trail so they wouldn't have to walk over me. Raptors include 6 RT Hawk, a Sharpie and a Northern Harrier.

It was a gorgeous day to be on the mountain!
