Birding In Eagle County

July 10-13, 2014

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I spent four days wandering around Eagle County.  Lack of electricity/internet for most of July did not allow me to update the Blog.  I did not take my laptop on this trip in fear that anything left in our jeep would tempt someone to break into it.

The two days we spent below Mount of the Holy Cross were the most interesting.  Highlights included:

Dusky Grouse: Gold Park Road
Northern Pygmy-Owl: Campgrounds
Flammulated Owl (2): Missouri Creek Road

Birding and especially owling were again hampered by severe afternoon thunderstorms.  It was the trend for July, summer of 2014.
