Gary's and others' Cassin's Finches up at the Mt. Hardy burn follow a
pattern of occurrence there. The species is uncommon but regular in this
area; I had one at Cutthroat Pass (Skagit Co side) a few Augusts back, and
had single birds twice. History shows that in the years immediately
following the fire, a number of birders had them there, but the Wiggers hit
the record with a group of 45 in late August one year. Other reports have
involved single birds or small numbers (2-3).
Other note for Skagit bird enthusiasts: the Grassmere BC Hummingbird was
just the third for the county. Does anyone out there have the date?
