Our first Owl Prowl will be this upcoming Friday, March 17th, 2017. We will be meeting at the Menard’s Parking lot at 6:30pm and leaving for Box Elder Canyon at 6:45pm sharp. Please bring the appropriate clothing and flashlights/headlights, as it will be dark once we get to the canyon.
Owl Prowl to Box Elder Canyon
Friday, March 17th, 2017
Menard’s Parking Lot at 6:30pm.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
Murie Audubon will have a field trip to the Jackson Canyon Eagle Roost on Saturday, Feb 18. We will meet at 3:00 PM at the Goose Egg Inn parking lot. That is about 200 yards south of Wyoming 220 on Goose Egg Rd. I even think that the Highway Department has a sign that says Goose Egg Rd. The Highway Department has its own name for roads around here, and only about half the time does the Highway sign list the same name as that assigned by the County.
My ranch hand took some friends up to the roost last night, and he said the biggest problem is slipping in the mud. He only saw 6 eagles, but he was back before dark. He also said there were lots of robins and some Clark’s Nutcrackers. This hike is energetic, climbing about 700 feet in a mile and a half on mud and rocks. Bring a flashlight because we will come down in the dark. Also, even if it is warm and calm in Casper, it will be cold and windy on the edge of Jackson Canyon. Call Stacey Scott at 262-0055 before 8:00 PM for more details.
Once again Mother Nature has caused us to postpone the Casper Christmas Bird Count – this time until Saturday, December 31. We hope you all can stay home and stay safe tomorrow. We plan on meeting at the same time and place as advertised before and I’ll send a reminder later in the week. Thank you for your patience!
