Among the birds at Minersville Reservoir on Sunday, 08/29, were 2 SEMIPALMATED PLOVERS, 11 RED-NECKED PHALAROPES, and a BONAPARTE'S GULL (SS).
At Devil Canyon, five ACORN WOODPECKERS were seen on Sunday, 08/29 (J&KB). Acorn Woodpeckers and a NASHVILLE WARBLER were seen there on Monday, 08/30 (MS). The birds were seen where US 191 crosses the canyon, about 10 miles south of Monticello.
A CASSIN'S KINGBIRD was seen along the highway to the Needles District of Canyonlands NP on Sunday, 08/29 (J&KB).
At least two ZONE-TAILED HAWKS continue to be seen near the Pine Park Campground west of Enterprise. The birds were seen on Saturday, 08/28 (DW), Sunday, 08/29 (C&TN), Monday, 08/30 (TS) and on Tuesday, 08/31 (MS). The best place to watch for them is at the bend in the road just past the "motorized travel restricted" sign, where you can first see out over the valley below. To get to Pine Park, go west from Enterprise for 16 miles to the road to Pine Park, and follow that road for 10 miles to the campground. This is the third record of Zone-tailed Hawk in Utah.
Also at the Pine Park CG, a NORTHERN PYGMY-OWL was heard calling in the morning on Saturday, 08/28 (DW), and a NASHVILLE WARBLER was seen on Tuesday, 08/31 (MS).
A CASSIN'S VIREO was seen in the Pine Valley Mountains on Tuesday, 08/31 (MS). The bird was about 1/4 mile up the Whipple Valley Trail.
At Lytle Ranch, a flock of NASHVILLE WARBLERS and a NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH were seen at and around the pond on Sunday, 08/29 (C&TN).
This concludes the Utah Bird Report for Thursday, September 2, 1999.
