Jefferson County Parks

March 6, 2016

Richard Stevens:

Two out of state birders and I arrived at Reynolds Park (Jefferson) about an hour before sunrise.  A Northern Pygmy-Owl called from the western (larger) parking area.

An American Dipper was found along the South Platte River as we drove to Pine Valley Ranch Park (Jefferson).

We had to climb to the Parkview and Strawberry Jack trail intersection before running into an American Three-toed Woodpecker.  A male was 20 yards below the intersection.

We searched half a dozen spots where Northern Pygmy-Owls have been found in the past; without success.
