A.M. Bailey Bird Sanctuary

July 17-18, 2014

Sue Ehlmann:

Back from a long couple of weeks in the mountains, I left Bryan and Rich Stevens at A.M. Bailey Bird Sanctuary. They plan to walk south to Quandary Peak more or less.

On 7/17, they found an American Three-toed Woodpecker about 1/3 the way from the trailhead to the bird sanctuary. It is approximately 1.2 miles from the trailhead to A.M. Bailey.

At dusk on 7/17, they found a Northern Pygmy-Owl northwest across the creek.

On 7/18, they found a pair of American Three-toed Woodpeckers again northwest across the creek. Later they found a female White-tailed Ptarmigan with three young up the Ptarmigan Trail. GPS about 0.6 miles up the trail from the intersection of the main trail and the trail to A.M. Bailey.

Other birds seen in the area: Fox Sparrow, MacGillivray's Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Hammond's Flycatcher, Cordilleran Flycatcher, Red-naped Sapsucker, Williamson's Sapsucker.
