One of several Golden-crowned Kinglet
Black-throated Gray Warbler - They were the most numerous. Many warbler species today - Orange-crowned, Black-throated Gray, Yellow-rumped, Nashville, Townsends, Wilsons, MacGillvrays - good variety for the west coast. Only missed Yellow Warbler - but a bit early for them perhaps.
A good number of Pacifc-slope Flycatcher today.
One of 3 Red-breasted Sapsuckers
And one of 2 Barred Owls.
And back at home, a male Rufous Hummingbird at the feeder.
Yes, lots once you are 2/3rds up the mountain. I am assuming it is rapidly melting with this weather though! Still 3-4 feet of snow up there. I didn't go all the way to the top. I met another hiker coming down who also turned around farther up and his feet were soaked! I guess it was rough going on partially melted snow with hidden puddles, etc.
If you are going for the birds, there are plenty there. My list is just the ones I saw. Many more were heard! Photography lighting for the first 1/3rd of the trail is challenging in the morning though, as the trail begins in the shade and that part stays shaded until close to noon.

Damion here. Great photography man! Vivid and bright and colorful. I guess you changed the setting on your camera quite a bit depending on levels of light, and so on. My goal is to buy a good beginners camera and lense in the next year. What do you think about the 4 of us doing Harrison Lake by boat again some time? Remember last September? Also, congratulation on your new baby!
