Park County Owling Update

March 21-22, 2015

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I conducted owl counts in Park County over two nights.  We put out our "owl listening stations" (see "Colorado Field Notes" for details).  The plan is to put out final counts and locations on maps in April's "Colorado Field Notes".

Examples of "Colorado Field Notes" can be seen at:

We did find multiple Northern Pygmy-Owls and Northern Saw-whet Owls.  No Flammulated Owls yet, it was quite early to find them in Colorado.  Snow covered roads limited access to drive to higher elevations where Boreal Owls are found.  While we have found Spotted Owls to the south in Fremont County, it has been several years since one was found north of Fremont County.

Looking forward to April's Colorado Field Notes!

I hope other birders realize what a valuable asset and tool it is when birding in Colorado
