Grouse Trip Day Six Nebraska to Julesburg

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 Six started at a private "Plains" Sharp-tailed Grouse lek north of North Platte, Nebraska. Eleven males displayed to the "disappointment" of two females who appeared uninterested.

A search for Eastern Meadowlarks was not successful and they returned to Colorado.

A Long-eared Owl was relocated in the windbreak at Red Lion Wildlife Area, Logan County.

The many gulls flying around Jumbo Reservoir, Logan/Sedgwick Counties included a Lesser Black-backed Gull and Glaucous Gull. An Eastern Screech-Owl responded to a recording on the north side of Jumbo Reservoir.

No Short-eared Owls flew by the southern section of Tamarack Ranch Wildlife Area at dusk.
