Fremont County Birding & Owling

October 26, 2011

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I birded around Canon City today. It was another mild late fall day in Colorado, fantastic!

Hours were spent walking around in search of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers. Finally we relocated the one reported by Jerry Petrosky at Centennial Park on 10/18. Later, we found another one at the old Holy Cross Abbey!

We set up our owl "listening stations" along the Shelf Road. It was a great success. In total 6 Northern Saw-whet Owls were accounted for with 2 observed and 4 additional recorded!

In the early morning, we found 2 Northern Pygmy-Owls at the Beaver Creek Wildlife Area.
