Davenport on Grouse Trips 4/23

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

Bryan Ehlmann and Richard Stevens continued to look for Baird's Sparrows on the Eastern Plains, again today with no luck.

They started by watching 11 Greater Prairie-Chicken at a different Lek southwest of Yuma.

At Beecher Island, they found a male Red-bellied Woodpecker.

Bonny Reservoir was a good place to bird today. They found a Piping Plover and two Snowy Plover at the east end of the reservoir.

A Field Sparrow was along the Yuma County Road 2 entrance before it makes a right turn (southern turn).

An Eastern Phoebe was along the County Road 3 entrance west of Foster's Grove Campgrounds.

A pair of Red-bellied Woodpeckers wandered around the western Hale Ponds.

They did not find any Eastern Screech-Owls or Common Poorwills at dusk.
