Trip to Loveland Pass and North Park

December 14, 2011

Rebecca Kosten;

Richard Stevens, Mark Martinez and Kevin Payton finally found two White tailed Ptarmigan after a four hour search at Loveland Pass, Clear Creek County. Their last resort was to climb up the steep western trail at the summit. Birds were about 0.4 miles up the trail.

Rosy Finches were found flying around north of Silverthorne, Summit County. A dozen Barrow's Goldeneyes were seen at the Blue River Water Treatment Plant, Summit County.

They continued north to Rabbit Ears Pass, Grand County. No crossbills or Three toed Woodpeckers were found and they continued east.

No Greater Sage-Grouse were found along Jackson County Road 26 at dusk.
