April 25, 2012

Richard Stevens:

I did not have a large amount of time today (preparing for another grouse trip for tomorrow).  Bryan Ehlmann and I did hike below the dam at Barr Lake (Adams County).  The search for the Long-eared Owl and Ash-throated Flycatcher (of 4/22) was not successful.

We passed through Cherry Creek State Park (Arapahoe) and stopped briefly at the southwest marina.  The only gulls were a few Ring-billed Gulls.

Off the northern end of the Lake Loop, we found 3+ Bonaparte's Gulls and 3+ Franklin's Gulls.  The Laughing Gull was not picked out among the black headed gulls.

A Virginia Rail called when we stopped at the Cottonwood Creek Wetlands.  No Tricolored Heron reported since last Friday (4/20).
