Been trying to figure out access to Willow Creek on Pawnee for about last month and a half. Twice was thwarted in discovery--yesterday SUCCESS! Beautiful place and more than likely a great migrant trap for our migrations.
Map: Red route is shortest route to Willow Creek. The three routes also involve opening and closing pasture fence gates as a heads up.
Yesterday: Lapland Longspur (3); Horned Lark (28); American tree Sparrow (3); Golden Eagle (3, family unit) and there is large prairie dog colony to boot as you approach the creek along with several green stakes along the journey that are marking part of Fritz Knopf's Mountain Plover studies.
