Search for a Gyrfalcon

March 1, 2007

The snow finally stopped. Allen Sopack and I went out searching for the Gyrfalcon reported by Nick Komar; without success. Winds were 15-25mph today; temperatures never rose above freezing.

We also searched briefly for the Bohemian Waxwings reported near Centennial Middle School in Boulder; without success. We were able to find a Long-eared Owl in the county!

We checked Rawhide Reservoir (Larimer County). Not much was found from our vantage point (which was quite far away).

Little was happening on the Pawnee National Grasslands. No owls around Crow Valley Campground (Weld). We did find 3 Lapland Longspurs along my favorite Pawnee National Grasslands Loop. Many of the roads were quite muddy and required careful driving.
