Morgan County

January 19, 2009

Richard Stevens:

Brad Nelson, Randy Cross and I headed northeast today. Winds were 22+ mph with temperatures in the high 50s. Gusts were recorded at 38 mph.

Long-eared Owls can still be found at Jackson Reservoir (Morgan County). We only had to drive along Morgan County Road 4 about a mile before finding a flock of 60+ Lapland Longspurs. Unfortunately, they all appeared to be Laplands.

Nothing uncommon was found at Riverside Park in Fort Morgan or at any feeders at Log Lane Village. We did find a Wilson's Snipe at Highway 144 bridge over Bijou Creek.

Barr Lake (Adams) was quiet. We could not relocate the previously reported Barrow’s Goldeneye. Most of the White-cheeked Geese were too far out to positively identify.

A Rough-legged Hawk was found at Tower Road and 128th avenue.
