I covered the road between the Preston Trailhead and the highest gate, stopping several times to listen for owls and try playback. I ended up spending most of my time just down from the trailhead, where there was good Flamm activity. I called it quits at midnight, instead of starting a new checklist.
Conditions: mid 60s; high, thin overcast; intermittent breeze from Beaufort 0-3; dead quiet; moon waxing crescent, just about to set by the end of the checklist.
Minimum of three heard calling simultaneously 23:20–23:30 at 41.7723, -111.7383; unfortunately a bit too breezy to attempt much of a recording. A fourth bird was calling at 23:50 at 41.7720, -111.7425.
Breeding & Behavior Code:
T Territorial Defense (Probable)
Exotic species flags differentiate locally introduced species from native species.
Naturalized: Exotic population is self-sustaining, breeding in the wild, persisting for many years, and not maintained through ongoing releases (including vagrants from Naturalized populations). These count in official eBird totals and, where applicable, have been accepted by regional bird records committee(s).
Provisional: Either: 1) member of exotic population that is breeding in the wild, self-propagating, and has persisted for multiple years, but not yet Naturalized; 2) rarity of uncertain provenance, with natural vagrancy or captive provenance both considered plausible. When applicable, eBird generally defers to bird records committees for records formally considered to be of "uncertain provenance". Provisional species count in official eBird totals.
Escapee: Exotic species known or suspected to be escaped or released, including those that have bred but don't yet fulfill the criteria for Provisional. Escapee exotics do not count in official eBird totals.
