Passing Through Cherry Creek State Park

March 28, 2013

Richard Stevens:

While replenishing supplies for my next grouse trip (next week) I passed through Cherry Creek State Park (Arapahoe County).

Two Killdeer and a Greater Yellowlegs were wandering around the Prairie Loop mudflats (off the bird observation platform).

As I returned to my car, a Great Horned Owl buzzed perhaps 10 feet over my car (do not know if it had a problem with me, although it came quite close).  He landed in a nearby tree and we watched each other until all I could see was a silhouette.
