Wednesday 7/6: Today was spent in the Pawnee National Grasslands. I did the standard loop and then went back and forth a bit (including a trip up to some fields near Nunn) looking for Chestnut-collared Longspur. Nothing really worth describing in detail, so here’s photos:
Lark Buntings and Horned Lark
One of 9(!) Burrowing Owls
Ferruginous Hawk (unfortunately the only one I encountered)
After running from an approaching storm, I headed to Fort Collins. I found the La Quinta right off the highway and ended up at Larkburger for dinner, where the only complaint was that I got a salad instead of fries.
