Lazuli Buntings strike me as about three times more abundant on the top of Mary's Peak this year. It's the restoration, which includes a fair amount of straight forward clearcuts.Not a single Chipping Sparrow or House Wren up there when l visited multiple sites 2 or three Sundays ago. Both were well represented on visits the previous 4 or 5 summers.      There was a Townsend's Solitaire 100m downhill from the main parkinglot(on the shoulder of pavement) also.

Ravens clasped in midair and did the spinning ball of feathers and  later a loner was observed carrying food. Hermit Thrush and chipping sparrows added their two cents worth.The flowers are still in grand form.H_______________________________________________birding mailing listbirding at midvalleybirding.orghttp://midvalleybirding.org/mailman/listinfo/birding
