Jumbo Reservoir for Jaegers

September 18, 2016

Richard Stevens:

Terry Michaels, Rebecca Kosten, Sue Ehlmann and I drove up to Jumbo Reservoir to search for the three jaegers reported yesterday.  Again, winds were 12+ mph.

We eventually found two Parasitic Jaegers.  The third Jaeger, which had been also labeled a Parasitic Jaeger, appeared to us to be a possible Pomarine Jaeger.  Note: final decision was never reached on it (although two other birders later in the day called it a Pomarine Jaeger also).

We stopped at Tamarack Ranch Wildlife Area (Logan) on our trip home.  We found two Northern Cardinals, five Red-bellied Woodpeckers and one of the resident Eastern Screech-Owls!
