DIA Owl Loop

July 5, 2013

Richard Stevens

Our Pileated Woodpecker search did not look encouraging to spend another day so we headed back to Denver.  Our return was timed to drive over Pennock Pass about two hours before sunrise.  One Flammulated Owl was heard (GPS waypoints taken).

In the late morning, Bryan Ehlmann and I made a quite trip over to Barr Lake (Adams County).  We did not find the Greater Roadrunner reported on 7/3.

Later, Rebecca and I drove the DIA Owl Loop (Adams) on our way to dinner.  We were sidetracked by a Short-eared Owl flying over the fields south of 114th avenue and west of the Airport.

The Short-eared Owl at the south end of Grandbay Street (south of 114th Avenue).  It flew back and forth and to the west.

Burrowing Owls are still at the Prairie Dog Town at 3.4 miles east of Tower Road and 96th Avenue.
