Thanks for all the advice about finding Rosy-Finches. I went out to the Henry Rd. site but perhaps arrived too late. I did find the Golden Eagles, a Rough-legged Hawk and a Kestral

  I thought I would add a bit to this conversation as someone who spent a lot of time (mostly with Ross Silcock) looking for rosy-finch roosts in western Nebraska in the late 1990s and early 2000s. First, they seemed to prefer old Cliff Swallow nests on cliffs that faced south or east. Second, they like to go to bed early! Arrival times at the Henry Road site, Scotts Bluff Monument, and a couple of other spots averaged around 3 p.m. They usually didn't linger long before entering the old nests for the night. I'm not sure if this pattern has changed in recent years. So, the monument closure at 4:30 p.m was definitely not an issue for us and we found rosy-finches there several times.
