Exploring SE Arapahoe County to Elbert County

August 26, 2015

Richard Stevens:

Rebecca and I drove the Yale-Jewell Loop (Arapahoe) on our way to Elbert County and the Dickcissel field south of Kiowa.

A few Loggerhead Shrikes and half a dozen Western Kingbirds continue along Yale Avenue.

No Dickcissels were found when we scoped the "Dickcissel field" along Elbert Road (4.1 miles south of Hwy 86).

A check of two "traditional" locations of Common Poorwill in Elbert did not turn up any today.

We continued south to Ramah Reservoir (El Paso).  Unfortunately, the Buff-breasted Sandpiper appeared to be gone.  We did see the previously reported Red-headed Woodpecker.

We returned to Stonegate Pond trying for better photos of the Pectoral Sandpiper there. The sandpiper was there however, it was too dark for photos by the time we arrived.
