April 24, 2012

Richard Stevens:

Rebecca Kosten and I returned to Fort Morgan Ponds (Morgan County) for another search for the American Woodcock reported on April 22; again, we were unsuccessful. 

Brush Ponds Wildlife Area appeared to have few birds.  Then we drove to Brush Wildlife Area (Morgan).  A few interesting birds were found.  A male Northern Parula fluttered about the eastern side of the pond.

A male Red-bellied Woodpecker worked the northern border.  He led us to a female Red-bellied Woodpecker and a possible nesting tree.

No Eastern Screech-Owls were found today.

A pair of Eastern Bluebirds, a Wilson's Warbler and a Black-throated Gray Warbler was highlights at Last Chance Rest Stop (Washington).

A stop at the I70 Rest Stop near Byers did not find any uncommon birds.
