Observation notes: Ken Thanks so much for sharing your Pet with me, It was right where you said it would Be. Clear Cool Morning, not much flying still to cold. Had to run the dog to scare stuff up, this little one was trying to warm up on the rocks. Many species flying but nothing to add to your Naba Count and still not able to find Sierra Parnassian Yet!
