First Swainson's Hawk of 2008

March 24, 2008

While out doing chores, Rebecca Kosten and I drove over to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County). Birding was slow. Only a couple of American White Pelican and a dozen Double-crested Cormorant were found. No sparrows at campgrounds, model airplane area, or Cottonwood Creek loop. Two 1st or 2nd white belly Bald Eagles flew over the eastern end of the reservoir.

No owls were found along the DIA Owl Loop. We did pass a Swainson's Hawk that was perched on a speed limit sign near 96th avenue and the Toll Road.
