The Brim officially opened on 6/6/2018. Advisories: Expect a deluge of mountain bikers over the weekend. Trail in great shape. Getting close to fly season where a head net will be helpful; also, hikers sighted a bear on 5/30/2018 on the new Baggage Claim Trail connecting the end of Paper Airplane Sculpture Trail and the Brim trailhead. Area is downslope from The Village (under construction). Summer trails map available at www.PowderMountain.com.

Male peeking his head out of last year's nest cavity. Black head with white stripes aft of eye and across lower cheek from gape; red throat. Also, two drumming sequences ("Brrt...brrt...brt") from nearby conifers before seeing the bird in the cavity. Not sure if the drummer was him or her. Territory along the Short Brim Loop.

American Three-toed Woodpecker

Black-and-white; white blaze down the back; pure white outer tail feathers; white breast with grayish barring down the sides; male with yellow patch on forehead; all three birds chipping a veritable rainstorm of bark chips from mature or dead spruces with a diagonal hammering motion. A hardhat may be necessary gear to observe these birds. Single female drumming sequences whose taps sped up toward the end. Male and female pair chipping bark on both sides of the trail in the 2016 nest territory; single female drumming and chipping bark in the area of the north junction of the Short Brim and Long Brim Loops.

American Kestrel

Using a nice copse of trees isolated from the Brim Trail where a Northern Flicker and Hairy Woodpeckers were in nest cavities; seems likely the kestrels were using an old flicker hole.

White-crowned Sparrow

Flushed one while walking through knee-high mountain bluebells in the Hairy Woodpecker copse; the bird appeared to come from below the forbs and perhaps came off a ground nest. Got a good look at the face; those dark lores look pretty intense after seeing mostly pale-lored birds all winter.
