  One last bimble through the ‘teries revealed some pleasant surprises on a crisp afternoon. It was super birdy on the north mounts! No time for a proper account now, as I’m throwing clothing into a tattered backpack. Oh yeah, the last bird of the day was a Canada Warbler, which I thought was a clever nod from the bird gods.
