Davenport on Grouse Trips 4/13

It has been decided that instead of waiting a week for a grouse trip to finish and getting reports, I will transcribe telephone reports of current grouse trips. I will do my best. Amy Davenport

The CoBus started another grouse trip led by Richard Stevens. Their first stop was Loveland Pass in Clear Creek/Summit Counties. Three White-tailed Ptarmigan were found on the ragged rocks 300 yards below the eastern side of the summit.

A stop at Windy Gap Reservoir in Grand County found 8+ Barrow's Goldeneyes on the unfrozen lake.

Their final stop of the day was Jackson County Road 26. About 15 minutes after sunset, nine Greater Sage-Grouse walked out of the sage and displayed.

Jacob Washburn and Ray Simmons in a separate group found 23+ Gunnison Sage-Grouse at the Waunita Hot Springs Lek.
