more info on NW birds
- In my haste in writing my last message, I left out a few details and
The California Quail were seen on July 20th. Total driving time to the
site, from Denver, is about 6 hours. Brown Park, for a change, has a
decent amount of water in it, though not too many ducks. Shorebirds
should be moving through.
On Hoy Mountain, I had a pair of Winter Wrens, 1 singing the western
song. This is the second time I've had Winter Wren in extreme NW
Colorado, the first time being almost three years to the day before, at
the Wiggins Unit of the Browns Park SWA. I suspect that they may breed
rarely in the area.
Both Kenney Res and Rio Blanco Lake were very full, and had few birds.
