Bird Breeding Survey Down Cimarron Road, Gunnison County

June 25, 2013

Rebecca Kosten: transcript of telephone call:

Stevens and Ehlmann continue their Gunnison County Bird Breeding Surveys.

They found a Black Swift flying around Big Green Mountain Falls.

A Dusky Grouse, Williamson's Sapsucker and several Red-naped Sapsuckers were seen at Silver Jack Campgrounds.  The highlight of the day was a male Hooded Warbler with a beak full of food.

A Dusky Grouse crossed the road to Cowboy Lake.  Yet another American Three-toed Woodpecker was also found.

After dark, they found a Boreal Owl along the road, above Cowboy Lake.

No owls were caught calling on the three "owl listening stations" that they had set up along Hampton Road (Cowboy Lake Road).
