Date of sighting: July 20

My group of six hikers and myself enjoyed excellent views of the adult male CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER on July 19 at 2:30 pm. We saw the bird well for about five minutes foraging in two whitebark pines adjacent to the trail. Undoubtedly this is the same bird found by Bob Power on June 28. It was in the exact location he described, a few hundred yards above Gemstone Lake where the trail switchbacks. It did not vocalize in the time we were observing it. We also saw two GRAY-CROWNED ROSY FINCHES on the east side of Helen Lake.

Other recent sightings include: a group of PINYON JAYS just west of the Mono Mills burn, south of Highway 120 on July 19. A MARBLED GODWIT, LONG-BILLED curlew. 2 SEMI-PALMATED AND 2 SNOWY PLOVERS at the shallow puddles east of Navy Beach on July 19. A CASPIAN TERN flying near the mouth of Rush Creek on July 17.
