CoBus Western Slope Breeding Survey (cont)

Rest of July 12, 2017

Group B (dkin, bmar, rkos, sehl) searched for Yellow-billed Cuckoos along the Gunnison River.  They started in Paonia and worked their way back to Delta.  None was recorded today.  They ran into a Rufous Hummingbird in Paonia and a Calliope Hummingbird in Hotchkiss.

Group A thought they saw a Scott's Oriole on the west side of Hwy 65 at Orchard City.  Both Groups went back later and searched unsuccessfully for over an hour.

Late in the afternoon, they found a Chukar near Currant Creek and M 50 Drive, Delta County.
