The Pacific Wren continued this morning in Palomar Mountain State Park. As previously described, the bird popped up right at the no. 8 trail post marker at roughly 8am. The bird was very active in the area between signposts 8 and 9, vocalizing frequently and we watched it for about 45 minutes.
For anyone interested in getting this bird for their new year lists: This morning, all of the roads in the park were closed due to large amounts of black ice, as such it was required to park at the top parking lot just past the pay station and walk in about 1.5 miles down the road to reach the nature trail trailhead over ice a snow.
