DIA Owl Loop Before Sunrise, Adams County

January 23, 2011

Richard Stevens:

Rebecca and I went out for breakfast early this morning. Drove the DIA Owl Loop first. About 20 minutes before sunrise, we observed a Short-eared Owl way out in the distance southeast of Trussville Avenue and 114th Avenue. The area received an inch or more of grapple last night and roads were too muddy to drive. We could see hundreds of Horned Larks, too far away to id anything else.

Barr Lake was slow. Many White-cheeked Geese again too far away to identify much else. No uncommon sparrows came to the Visitor's Center feeders in the 15 minutes we watched them.
