Sabine's Gull at Cherry Creek State Park

September 5, 2011

Rebecca Kosten:

Bryan & Sue Ehlmann, Richard Stevens and I drove through Cherry Creek State Park on our way to purchase some new computers at nearby Micro Center.

The Sabine's Gull was swimming in the very southwest corner of the reservoir. It was just about the only place that the many many boats and jet skis could not go. We could not believe the number of people out there today. Maybe a record? Thanks to Cheryl Teuton for reporting the Gull!

After it cooled down around 6:30 PM, we drove the DIA Owl Loop in search of owls. Three Burrowing Owls were at 3.4 miles east of Tower Road and 96th avenue. They all looked like juveniles................waiting for parents to bring back food?

No Short-eared Owls flew around tonight. Beautiful sunset and cool evening!
