Rosy-Finch Sightings Log Update as of FEB 17 2014

This post was updated on .
Flocks of up to 25 rosy-finches of all three species continue to visit the feeders at any given time. Brown-capped and Black species continue to predominate. No reports of Hepburn's sightings so far.  Pay close attention and try to obtain photos if you see any Gray-crowned species, as none have been banded to date.

Please be sure to enter sightings when you visit. The log book is readily accessible, either at the desk to the left as you enter the Gift Shop, or in the dining area.

Thanks to Alan Mickelson for venturing up to Crest House to refill the feeders and copy the entries in the sightings log, which may be accessed at this link:

Check out the live camera shot of the Paa-Ko Golf Course near the entrance of the road to the Crest, at only about 7000 feet elevation:
