Yet Another Snowy Owl Search

Email I sent to "cobirders":

December 24, 2011

Rich Stevens and I drove around Morgan and Weld Counties looking for Snowy Owls. We found an Eastern Screech Owl at Jackson Reservoir and two Short eared Owls flying around at dusk at Lower Latham Reservoir's marsh on Weld County Road 48.

Then we heard about the Snow Owl at the east side of Aurora Reservoir. Too late in the day for us to try to find.

Good Birding!

We also stopped by a friend of Richard's and saw 9 Gray-crowned Rosy Finches that have been visiting in Weld County since last Thursday's snowstorm.

Long-eared Owls were found at two locations (to remain unnamed in Weld and Morgan Counties).
