Eastern Denver Lakes and Aurora Reservoir

December 10, 2012

Richard Stevens:

While out doing chores, Rebecca Kosten and I scoped the Eastern Denver County Lakes: Lakecrest, Emerald Strand Park and Green Valley Recreation Center Pond.  The only uncommon goose found was a Greater White-fronted Goose at Green Valley Recreation Center Pond.  No Brants, still hoping and looking for them among thousands of White-cheeked Geese.

We stopped by Bill Cryder's home near Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe).  It was too cold and windy (32 degrees, wind chill 21 with winds 14 mph, gusts to 22 mph).  We did not walk down to the lake, but could see a Common Loon from his deck.
