North Park

December 15, 2011

Richard Stevens:

Mark Martinez, Kevin Payton and I searched for Greater Sage-Grouse at dawn. We had no better success than last night.

No crossbills or Three-toed Woodpeckers were found when we passed Rabbit Ears Pass (Grand) on the way to Steamboat Springs.

Sharp-tailed Grouse were found at a private yard in Routt County.

We rented snowmobiles are spent the afternoon riding around north of Steamboat Springs. The highlight was seeing a Dusky Grouse, an American Three-toed Woodpecker and a flock of Red Crossbills (unfortunately no White-winged Crossbills).

After dark, we searched for Boreal Owls in the Colorado State Forest and Cameron Pass. One Boreal Owl was heard and later seen west of Cameron Pass (Jackson).
