Jackson County Owl Prowl

June 3, 2013

Amy Davenport: transcript of telephone call:

The road from Gould to Teller City Ghost Town is still closed due to mud.  Richard Stevens and Rebecca Kosten circled around and tried to get there by way of Rand.  Under dry conditions, Jackson County Road 21 still requires a 4-wheel drive between Highways 125 and 14.  They did not make it to Teller City.

The spot where Burrowing Owls nested along CR 27 was accessible.  They found one Burrowing Owl near last years location!  Let's hope another Burrowing Owl shows up!

In the afternoon, Richard relocated an American Three-toed Woodpecker for Marion and Jack Warren across from the Colorado State Forest Visitor's Center.

After sunset, Richard led the CoBus sponsored Owl Prowl at Cameron Pass and the Colorado State Forest.  While the trip stated that, the trip was from 9:00 pm to 5:00 am, birders were not required to stay for the whole trip. 

Five birders showed up.  Marion and Jack Warren did stay all night and were treated to both Boreal Owl and Flammulated Owl sightings along Ruby Jewell Road in the Colorado State Forest.

The other three birders were able to see a Boreal Owl around 10:00 pm near Cameron Pass.
