Directions:  In Diamond Fork Canyon (Billie's Mountain quad map) about two miles up from the [Diamond] campground [about 8 miles from the mount of the canyon] the forest service has recently constructed a new group picnic site just across the stream at a location known as "Monk's Hollow".  [see the picture below]

Description/ Birding:  A walking trail heads east from this picnic site [see above picture], and after a steep climb goes south through a broad meadow surrounded by oak, maple and scattered junipers.

Birds:  Along the stream you can find Gray Catbirds, Fox Sparrows and Yellow-breasted Chats. Up in the meadows along the forest edge you can find Black-throated Gray Warblers, Spotted Towhee, and Vesper Sparrows.
