Subject: [cobirds] Gilpin and Clear Creek migrants
A good way to see a mix of raptors in mountain counties is to hike along ridges in September. Sometimes you even see a bonus bird.

Today, Brenda and I hiked in the James Peak area of SW Gilpin County. A Swainson’s Hawk flew by, east of James Peak.

As we were driving along Forest Service Road 353.1, NE of Kingston Peak in northern Clear Creek County, a Prairie Falcon flew by, just above the tree tops.

Finally, along Elk Park Road (4N) in Clear Creek County, about half a mile from the Gilpin County line, we found an immature Red-headed Woodpecker at 10,500’. It landed repeatedly on the wooden fence on both sides of the road.
