Two Trips: Northeastern Colorado and Colorado Mountains

November 27, 2013

Rebecca Kosten: transcript of telephone call:

Bryan Ehlmann and Richard Stevens split up today.  Richard had to return to Denver for a White-tailed Ptarmigan trip up Guanella Pass in Clear Creek County.  Bryan led a group of three birders around Logan/Sedgwick Counties.

Bryan's group of four enjoyed a warmish day at Jumbo Reservoir and Tamarack Ranch Wildlife Area.

They reported from Jumbo Reservoir: Mew Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Thayer's Gulls, Common Loon and Pacific Loon.

Later they found a Field Sparrow, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Eastern Screech-Owl and Short-eared Owl at Tamarack Ranch Wildlife Area.  They sad miss was any Greater Prairie-Chickens.

Richard's group of two plus himself found two White-tailed Ptarmigan below the huge reddish rocks on the hill southeast of the parking lot at Guanella Pass, Clear Creek County.

Later they relocated a Northern Pygmy-Owl along the Narrow Gauge Trail at Pine Valley Ranch Park, Jefferson County.  They missed any American Three-toed Woodpeckers.
