Humphrey's Peak
Yesterday (9/3/10) I finally made it to the summit of Humphrey's Peak after four previous attempts where storms had chased me off. Starting off early, I made it to the top before any clouds built up. Amazingly, there was barely a breeze on the summit and was fairly warm by then (starting off at 6:30am it was 40 degrees F in the parking lot). A perfect day to hike!

Highlights along the way included a couple of AMERICAN THREE-TOED WOODPECKERS and several NASHVILLE WARLBERS. There were still some AMERICAN PIPITS up on the alpine tundra around the summit. Here is the full list:

Sharp-shinned Hawk (2)
Rufous Hummingbird
Hairy Woodpecker
American Three-toed Woodpecker (2)
Northern Flicker
Olive-sided Flycatcher (1)
Hammond's Flycatcher (2)
Steller's Jay
Clark's Nutcracker
Common Raven
Mountain Chickadee
White-breasted Nuthatch
Red-breasted Nuthatch
Brown Creeper
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
House Wren
Rock Wren
American Robin
Hermit Thrush
American Pipit (10+)
Nashville Warbler (10+)
Townsend's Warbler (2)
Yellow-rumped Warbler (15+, including 1 Myrtle)
MacGillivray's Warbler (1)
Wilson's Warbler (8+)
Dark-eyed Junco
Red Crossbill

Good birding!!!
