Today at Wolong, Sichuan, Michael Grunwell and Craig Brelsford made the 500 m climb to the Wuyipeng Field Monitoring Station (30.994128, 103.159845), elev. 2570 m (8,430 ft.). Michael and Craig did some great birding. For both of them, today was one of their all-time best birding days.

The climb up was a slog but birdy the whole way. Firethroat was the highlight.

The flatter area up top is a lost world. No sound of machines, clean air, and birds everywhere.

Michael and Craig had never birded at a place quite like Wuyipeng. The 500 m climb is a formidable barrier, and few people go there. On Craig's first visit in 2010 and again today, we saw no one. The birds have the place almost entirely to themselves. Wuyipeng offers ideal central China forest birding.
