Description

A wide-ish shot to show plant community. Gray's is supposed to be parasitic on Asteraceae, and seems to appear here next to yarrow pretty often, though there are also a lot of Arnica around.

Most are dried up now.

This plant seems to like rocks and downed logs. Maybe more water? Habitat shown in second photo, between wetter fen, and streamside riparian area.

Hint of red above eyes and on throat. Circled tree with neat rows of shallow holes. Is this a different bird than the one observed this morning?
