Jackson County Birds

September 28-29, 2011

Rebecca Kosten;

Bryan Ehlmann and Richard Stevens have been hiking areas around the Colorado State Forest in Jackson County. The weather has been cooperative. They are experiencing mild to calm winds and warm temperatures for autumn in the high country.

They are finding owls are really vocal. GPS waypoints have been acquired on seven Boreal Owls in the past two nights. The most successful locations have been south of the Crags Campgrounds (over 1.5 miles south) and along Michigan Ditch (over 4.5 mile hike).

Thursday afternoon, they found a Caspian Tern, Pectoral Sandpiper and many California Gulls at Walden Reservoir. A Common Loon was on Lake John Wildlife Area.
