Search for Cassin's Sparrows at Banner Lakes

August 3, 2011

Richard Stevens:

I drove over to Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Weld County). I wanted to checkout the grassy area at the northwest corner of the Wildlife Area for Cassin's Sparrows. They are showing up quite a few locations this summer.

No Cassin's Sparrows were found, however, as a bonus a Yellow-billed Cuckoo called in the windbreak between ponds 7 & 8. While looking for Long-eared Owls, I was able to find the Yellow-billed Cuckoo.

Two Burrowing Owls were at 3.4 miles east of Tower Road and 96th avenue (Adams County).
