Trip to Mt. Evans

August 8, 2015

Richard Stevens:

Three of us drove up Mt Evans (Clear Creek County) this morning.  Two Brown-capped Rosy Finches circled overhead at the northwest corner of Summit Lake.  Later we found a White-tailed Ptarmigan wandering around east of the Summit Lake Parking Lot.  It was about 400 yards east of the road.

We found a male American Three-toed Woodpecker crossing the Captain Mt trail at the Echo Lake Campgrounds.  Two Barrow's Goldeneyes were on Echo Lake.

A male Williamson's Sapsucker visited "his drumming" pole at the group picnic area, Genesee Mountain Park (Jefferson County)

On the way home, I stopped and took photos of the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron along the south side of Tabor Lake, Wheat Ridge Greenbelt (Jefferson County).
