Island Lake, Elko County, NV. 7-25-19.

I started the hike up to Island Lake in the dark at 4 am to see Himalayan snowcocks. Snowcocks were introduced to the Ruby Mountains between 1963 and 1979, and still inhabit the high rocky cliffs of this region. These mountains are the only place in the ABA where snowcocks are countable, and for this reason, this location has long been on my bucket list. At sunrise, I made it to the lake and started working my way up the rocky hillside, towards the cliffs where the snowcock reside. At 5:30 I saw a group of 5 work their way up the cliffs before quickly vanishing. Shortly after, a pair of black rosy-finches worked their way around the top. Many birders target these rosy-finches in addition to the snowcock since they have a restricted range in the west, and are usually easier to find later in July once juveniles are around. Also at the base of the cliffs were American pipits, pikas, and several mountain goats. I hiked my way to the very top and was able to see the other side. The best vantage point I've ever had. I ate lunch at the top and had very obliging rock wrens and violet-green swallows, where the violet was actually visible!
