Back to Logan County

May 30, 2011

Richard Stevens:

Today, Jacob Washburn, Ray Simmons, Roger Danka and I hiked most of the northern Tamarack Ranch Wildlife Area (Logan). However, before sunrise, we did drive to the southern sections to look for prairie chickens and Sharp-tailed Grouse; without success.

No new sightings were recorded in the 7 hour trek. Highlights included: Bell's Vireos, Yellow-billed Cuckoos (2 Locations), Red-bellied Woodpecker (4 sections), 2 Field Sparrows, 2 male Northern Cardinals (2 Locations) and a female Northern Cardinal.

Winds were again quite strong 12-15 mph, gusts to 24 mph.

After sunset, we even relocated one of the resident Eastern Screech-Owls.
