Wells Gray Provincial Park Green Mountain and Spahats Creek FSR Birding June 13, 2021

A quick trip up the the tower lookout up Green Mountain Road resulted in a single Three-toed Woodpecker proudly proclaiming its territory on an acoustically blessed tree.

Later on in the day I was able to do a quick drive up Spahats Creek Forest Service Road. The lower section was full of Swainson’s and Varied Thrush and other lower elevation species as I drove past in search of birds and other wildlife at higher elevation. I mostly birded from km 9-13 where I had to turn around due to deep snow on the road. A small group of Black Swift were flying high almost right at the 12 km mark.
