Successful Unsuccessful Chases
- Today I headed for Mesa County to chase my nemesis Greater Yellowlegs
at both Chaney and 6/50 Res. No luck despite sighting yesterday and
the day before. Did see two Long-billed Dowitchers and a couple of
Great-tailed Grackles at 6/50.
Since I was close to the Baxter Pass Road I decided to look for Long-
eared Owl in Garfield County - another nemesis. Walked through lots
of tamarisk and finally flushed two Long-eared Owsl along West Salt
Creek in Garfield County. Saw them fly several times.
