Coffee Pot Road, Garfield County

August 6-7, 2013

Rebecca Kosten: transcripts of telephone call:

Over the last two days, Ehlmann and Stevens searched for White-winged Crossbills etc during the day and owls at night.  They have constructed what they call "owl listening stations" which record night sounds.  Fancy and rather expensive software analyses the CDs, cuts out non-owl noises, and reduces the overall listening time to just minutes of owl sounds.

During the days, they found Purple Martins at two locations along Coffee Pot Road.  A male American Three-toed Woodpecker was encountered along the White Owl Lake Trail.

After dark, two Boreal Owls were found around White Owl Lake.  A Flammulated Owl was also found lower on the trail.
