Eggs of Flammulated Screech Owl and Western Evening Grosbeak taken in Estes Park, Colorado
There was taken in Estes Park, Larimer Co., Colorado, by my 'hired assassin' last June, 1903, two sets of eggs of three each of the flammulated screech owl (Megascops flammeola) with two female birds. There was taken also the nest, a set of four and the parents of the western evening grosbeak (Coccothraustes vespertinus montanus). The eggs were prepared successfully.
