Search for White-tailed Ptarmigan

January 19, 2007

We drove around Summit County looking for mountain species. A few Rosy Finches, Pine Grosbeak, Evening Grosbeak, Mountain Chickadees, and Pine Siskin were found. Barrow's Goldeneyes were still on the Blue River Water Treatment Plant (3 miles south of I70 & Hwy 9).

We scoped the hills at the top of Loveland Pass for about an hour. No White-tailed Ptarmigans could be found. It was again quite windy at the top. Our scopes were barely useable. Keeping them steady enough to see anything was quite a chore.
