Birding Around Silverthorne

November 4, 2016

Richard Stevens:

Terry Michaels and I visited a friend in Silverthorne today.  Recent snows have brought Rosy Finches to town.  We found 15 Brown-capped Rosy Finches and 6 Gray-crowned Rosy Finches.  No Black Rosy Finches showed up today.

A good number of mountain species were around.  Included were Clark's Nutcracker, three species of nuthatches, Mountain and Black-capped Chickadees, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers, and Pine Siskins.

One Barrow's Goldeneye was on the Blue River Water Treatment Plant Pond!

A search for owls near the town of Montezuma came up empty.  Winds were 18 mph, gusts to 29 mph.
