Hello cobirders,

Arapahoe County
Richard Stevens, Bryan and I stopped at Cherry Creek State Park. There were no Townsend's Warblers found at the Smoky Hill Group Picnic Area. We did see a young American Redstart, a Cassin's Vireo and 21 Yellow-rumped Warblers. The warblers seem to prefer the locust trees while the vireo the cottonwoods.

Later we relocated Burrowing Owls at E470 and 6th avenue and along Gun Club Road halfway between Colfax and 6th avenue.

No Short-eared Owls showed up at dusk along the DIA Owl Loop.

Good Birding!
