Another Grouse Trip, Day Two

April 7, 2012

Rebecca Kosten;

Grouse Trip second Day: The group started by finding nine Sharp-tailed Grouse at the 20 Road Lek. While the road is called 20 Road, it is listed on most maps as 27 Road.

Afterwards they hurried over to the 80 Route north of Hayden. Seventeen Greater Sage-Grouse and a dozen Sharp-tailed Grouse were found at their leks. See the Colorado Birding Society website for additional directions.

In spite of several hours at Cameo, a.k.a. Coal Canyon, Mesa County, no Chukar were found.

They left for owling on the Grand Mesa, out of cell phone coverage.
