Blue Grouse - 3/30
- Greetings MendoBirders,
Yesterday I drove up Low Gap Rd to see if any Blue Grouse are booming
yet. I began at the second cattle guard (no Blue Grouse) and continued
west from there stopping periodically to listen. At 0.75 miles west of
the second cattle guard I finally encountered BLUE GROUSE. A male was
booming downslope from this location and a female was in a tree directly
over the road.
To find this location drive west on Low Gap Rd to the second cattle
guard. At about 0.7 miles west of the second cattle guard there is an
open meadow area downslope on the right (north). At 0.75 miles west of
the second cattle guard the road makes an "S" curve to the left and then
immediately back to the right. Right were the road curves left there
are trees on the right (north) side of the road and this is where the
grouse was booming.
Good Birding Ya'll
