Owling the Last Two Nights

September 16 & 17, 2010

Done some owling the past two nights. It was pretty good considering the owls are starting to migrate.

Thursday night Amy Davenport, Bryan and Sue Ehlmann, Richard Stevens and I hiked up Mesa South Trail and Shadow Canyon. We ended up with four species, Eastern Screech-Owl, Northern Pygmy-Owls, Northern Saw-whet Owl and Flammulated Owl. While we only saw the Saw-whet Owl and Eastern Screech-Owl, it was still great.

Last night Bryan Ehlmann, Richard Stevens, Ray Simmons and I went up to Estes Park and hiked the area east of the YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park Campgrounds and Cow Creek. This time we only had three species but Northern Pygmy-Owls at three locations, seen at two of them, one Northern Saw-whet Owl and one or two Flammulated Owls.

Cool time!
