Birding In Douglas County

October 9, 2011

Sue Ehlmann:

Rebecca Kosten, Rich Stevens, Bryan and I decided to search for the Red-headed, Lewis's and Three-toed Woodpeckers near Cheesman Reservoir. We walked from the Cheesman Canyon Trailhead to the green trailer to the west; no woodpeckers. An adult and 1st year Green-tailed Towhee and a late Wilson's Warbler were in the willows south of the road.

Richard and Bryan hiked up the Cheesman Canyon Trail and found two Three-toed Woodpeckers while Rebecca and I wandered around. Once again, the Red-headed and Lewis's Woodpeckers eluded us.

We stopped half a dozen times along Sugar Creek Road. No Pygmy Owls were seen. We didn't want to stay around until dusk, so gave up on them.

Three Townsend's Solitaires and a small flock of Cedar Waxwings were at the Sedalia Cemetery.
