Search for Boreal Owls Around Cameron Pass

March 30, 2013

Richard Stevens:

Before midnight, Bryan Ehlmann and I heard two Boreal Owls near the Joe Wright Reservoir parking area.  Three additional Boreal Owls were heard around and west of Cameron Pass.

Rosy Finches were again seen later in the day at the Colorado State Forest Visitor's Center feeders (no Blacks).

Late in the afternoon, we hiked down to the Crags Campgrounds (Jackson).  After dusk, we found a Boreal Owl about 0.2 miles south of the Campgrounds.  We were several miles off/south of Highway 14.  This is not recommended hike for those not familiar with the area.  We do carry avalanche beacons and inspected area much before attempting.
