South Platte River, North of Chatfield Reservoir

December 21, 2008

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I took time out of our Owling quest and stopped by Chatfield Reservoir (Douglas County).

We made the short walk north from the dog walking area down to the C470 bridge. The Dunlin was with 2 Killdeer on the shallow mudflats several hundred meters south of the highway.

We watched the shorebirds for 30 minutes and drove through the State Park looking for additional birds. Most of the reservoir is frozen and there were only a few birds around. Nothing uncommon turned up.
