Trip to Mt. Evans

Hello cobirders,

Here's a current and close to Denver report..............

New Colorado birder Tom Jenkins has been birding many of the Denver and foothills loops recently.

Today he went up to Mt. Evans, Clear Creek County.

A Echo Lake they found one Barrow's Goldeneye and an American Three-toed Woodpecker along the telephone poles on the west side of the lake.

They found three Brown-capped Rosy Finches circling the northwest corner of Summit Lake.  A walk east of the Summit Lake parking lot eventually found two White-tailed Ptarmigan.  The birds were about 300 yards from the Mt. Evans Road.

Many American Pipits flew along the road to the top of Mt. Evans.

On the way down, they found another American Three-toed Woodpecker at the Campgrounds.  A pair of Pine Grosbeaks were near the research center.

Good Birding!
