Rained Stopped; Finally Some Owling Success

August 15-16, 2013

Rebecca Kosten: transcript of telephone call:

Owling after the rain stopped.

The morning was spent returning to Derby Mesa Road, Eagle County.  They explored the jeep road that led to McMillan Lake and made it just into Routt County before turning around 2.5 miles short.  Recorded an American Three-toed Woodpecker in Routt County.

Thursday night, rains stopped early afternoon.  They set up their "owl listening stations" along Eagle County Roads 45 (Strubi Road) & 47 (Luark Road).  While they did not see any owls this night, two Northern Saw-whet Owls were captured on their recordings. 

Friday, they explored up Antelope Creek; Eagle County Road 37 to Routt County Road 1.  Their best bird was two Northern Pygmy-Owls calling along the Antelope Creek Forest Road.
