Yesterday, April 30th was our last viewing day of the season. Thank you to everyone that came out to see the Gunnison Sage-grouse, and we hope that you got a chance to enjoy this beautiful bird and their lekking grounds. The morning yesterday was about 27 degrees F, with clear skies, calm wind speeds and no precipitation. The high male count was 21, with no females observed.
During the next few days, while the site is closed to the public, we will continue to monitor and make counts and will report those numbers.
Today, the morning had no cloud cover and calm winds, with no precipitation. The high male count was 14 males, and the high female count was 1. An additional 16 unknown grouse were seen flushing from the North Meadow, adding to a total of 33 counted today.
Thank you again for your participation and enthusiasm in our treasured Gunnison Sage-grouse, we appreciate your love and continued support and we hope to see you next year!
