Comments:
Edison from Wildside Nature Tours was my co guide from Ecuador who saw two LIFE BIRDS with Gray Jay and Boreal Chickadee. Thank you to the group of wet intrepid ABF birders who trekked in the fog and mist of Saddleback Mountain finally dealing with hard cold rain at the top. During a break we trekked to the first place we fount them only to find cold 46 F temperatures and wind helping to lower the temp a bit more. Needless to say we all had an excellent field trip up Saddleback Mountain.
