This was my first time here and I liked it! So, I started the trail at 0645 and expected some quite time before the holiday crowds hit, but I under estimated the power of a teen girls voice and the echo of a presumably quite canyon. I hear (In my best teen girl voice) "Oh my god, is that a bee or a bird"? followed by a screeching "were gonna get stung" :-$ :-$ :-$ , great, just my luck.....I just drove 80 miles and this is what awaits me! ](*,)

I quickly passed the group(taking graduation photos,IN HIGH HEELS!!) and scrambled up the trail. So, I saw a nice Summer Tanager high in a tree top and Black Phoebe at Avra lake. I was looking for other notable birds in the lake and then...... "OH NO", It's them!! The teen girl and she's coming my way.... and she just said (in my best annoying teen girls voice) "This is awesome"...."look there's a lake, can I get a picture in the boat".....Geez! you have to be kidding me :gun:

So, finally I rid the annoying group again and proceed quickly up the trail. I spotted some nice Cardinals and a Thrasher. Then I came to a sign the said "rattlesnakes only, beyond this point"....I immediately thought of Gummo :lol:

Up around the bend and over by the herb garden, I decided to take a break and have a snack. And who do you think was coming? I'll give you one guess :-k.... The annoying teen girl was within ear shot....AGAIN!! :bdh: I know, it's insensitive and I should appreciate today's young intelligent minds! :oplz: So, I hear "Oh my god, take a picture of me there, laying on the ground, it'll be AWESOME" :gun: Rattlesnakes or not....I going off trail, through the creek and away from "her"

Finally, I rid the freak show and return to birding mode......not many birds today. In fact, I came across a few birders and they said today was the worst conditions in years :( Just my luck!

I'll be back! 8)
