Trip Through Cherry Creek Reservoir

August 2, 2011

Richard Stevens:

While out doing chores, I drove through Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County). It started to rain as I arrived. There were not any uncommon gulls at the southwest marina or water covered eastern sand spit.

The male Black-chinned Hummingbird is still searching for a mate east of the Ranger's Office.

The highlight was a flock of 61 Western Kingbirds passing southward over the Smoky Hill Group picnic area.

A couple of Burrowing Owls were out of their burrows along the DIA Owl Loop (3.4 miles east of Tower Road & 96th avenue, Adams County).

There were too many mosquitoes for a bird walk at Barr Lake (Adams).
