Davenport on Grouse Trips 4/16

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 group watched 23 Gunnison Sage-Grouse at the Waunita Hot Springs Lek east of Gunnison.

They decided to go to the Elkhart, Kansas Lesser Prairie-Chicken in the evening and then drive to Wray for a Greater Prairie-Chicken search the next morning. This allowed them to pick up a day on their itinerary for another Sharp-tailed Grouse later in the trip.

Fourteen Lesser Prairie-Chickens were dancing around when they arrived at the western Lesser Prairie-Chicken lek near Elkhart.

On another trip, Jacob Washburn and Ray Simmons found a Lucy's Warbler at Yellow Jacket Canyon (Montezuma). They are now heading to Texas.
