Instead of waiting a week for a bird trips to finish and getting reports, I will transcribe telephone reports of current bird trips. Amy Davenport

Grouse Trip Day Four, the group watched Gunnison Sage-Grouse at the Waunita Hot Springs Lek, Gunnison County.

They stopped briefly at Monarch Pass, Gunnison County. No American Three-toed Woodpeckers were found.

A Curve-billed Thrasher was seen at a friend's yard in Canon City, Fremont County. A quick drive down Swallows Road, west side of Pueblo Reservoir, found a Scaled Quail.

A pair of Mountain Plovers was relocated on the south side of Blue Lake, Bent County. The plovers were along County Road 10.

They did not find the John Martin Reservoir Snowy Owl, Bent County.

Their birding day ended at the eastern Lesser Prairie-Chicken Lek outside of Elkhart, Kansas.

Afterwards they drove to Wray, Colorado.
