Brief Trip to Jackson County

Feburary 17, 2016

Richard Stevens:

I took Rebecca up to the Walden area to meet several of her friends.  On the way up and before midnight, we heard a Boreal Owl at Cameron Pass (Jackson County).  It was my fifth owl of 2/16!

At sunrise, we observed 80 Rosy Finches (no Black) at the Colorado State Forest Visitor's Center.  The American Three-toed Woodpecker whose territory is north of the Visitor's Center & Hwy 14 did not show this morning.

I snow shoed at Zimmerman Lake on my way back to Denver.  No Three-toed Woodpeckers, Common Redpolls, White-winged Crossbill or Red Crossbills were encountered.

The long drive through too much traffic changed my plans to hang around until sunset and drive the DIA Owl Loop.
