I saw an adult and 4 little ones on the way to the top of Mt Bierstadt on August 5th. My one and only hike above tree line.

Subject: [cobirds] Scarcity of ptarmigan

White-tailed Ptarmigan have been scarce in the Colorado mountains this year. Presumably the heavy snow last winter led to a high mortality. I’ve done 30 hikes above treeline this summer, in different parts of the state, but have only seen one ptarmigan. That was August 28 in NW Conejos County.
