Figueroa Mtn. was pretty slow this morning (only 5 birds were banded in 6 hours). I did however, net and band a hatch year Hermit Warbler (passing through I'm sure as I haven't seen or heard any adults in the vicinity prior to this). On the way down the entertainment was courtesy of 4 Condors (2 flying overhead and 2 perching on a dead - almost - pine at the ranger station). It appears they've been visiting there regularly so keep your eyes open!!
