I arrived at my next study in Jarbidge, Nevada in the Humboldt Mountains. The town of Jarbidge is in a gulch at the base of the mountains. It was a thriving mining community at one time and the place of the last stagecoach robbery in 1916 (see below). I included a typical breeding habitat photo below where I found males singing to proclaim territory ownership. I was fortunate to finally take some video of male Cassin’s Finch while camping on the night of 11 June. There were several meadows and one large lake at the base of the mountains on the Charleston Rd. where I found the waterfowl and took some video of female and male Wilson’s Phalaropes.
