Ecology

Migration

Non-Migrant: No. All populations of this species make significant seasonal migrations.

Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make local extended movements (generally less than 200 km) at particular times of the year (e.g., to breeding or wintering grounds, to hibernation sites).

Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make annual migrations of over 200 km.

Trophic Strategy

Comments: Otte's (1981) comments are based on the work of Alexander and Hilliard who focused on Colorado populations. The primary food sources were grasses and sedges. Alpine populations also fed on the thistle CIRSIUM HOOKERIANUM.
