I was at the saddle at gate to road L1520 from 0700 to 0900 hrs. I was about 20 mins late but movement was still great which died off at 0830 hrs. The wind was howling and pushed me around at times (reminded me of birding hurricanes in Florida except i was not dodging tree limbs). I could not identify every bird as they came over the ridge in groups some being large. I am guessing I missed about 650 passerines and that is a conservative guess. Here are the numbers.

Black-throated gray 46
Townsend's 57
Orange-crowned 63
MacGillivray's 2
Yellow 4
Hermit 1

Red-breasted nuthatch 6
Black-headed grosbeak 1
Dark-eyed junco 73 ( one slate colored )
Evening grosbeak 1
Stellar's jay 17
TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE 10 (had an additional one on a powerline driving in on Rd L1510)
Warbling vireo 1
Western tanager 6
Northern flicker 5
Swainson's thrush 20
Vaux's swift 2
Purple finch 2
Red crossbill 10
Spotted towhee 1
Varied thrush 5
Hummer sp. 3
Rufus hummingbird 1
Sharp-shinned hawk 1
