Yuma County Walk-In-Areas

October 11, 2017

Terry Michaels and I resumed our Walk-In-Areas surveys in Yuma County today.  Temperatures reached 73 degrees today; winds were 7-8 mph with gusts to 17 mph.

Coyote Creek runs through two Walk-In-Areas in Yuma County.  CR J/CR 55 and CR J/CR 56 are the only Walk-In-Areas with "water" in the county.

Six Walk-In-Areas were visited near Clarkville.  It was a superb day; however, few birds were encountered.

CR J/CR 55 (Red-bellied Woodpecker, bird of day: Yellow-bellied Sapsucker )
CR K/CR 59 (Field sparrow)
CR G/CR 57 (Grasshopper Sparrow)

Our day ended watching a Greater Prairie-Chicken walk across the road at a private ranch south of Yuma.
