Another Raining Day In Adams County

September 15, 2013

Richard Stevens:

Rain continued again today.  At times winds were 12 mph with gusts to 23 mph.

Bryan Ehlmann and I searched unsuccessfully for the Golden-winged Warbler found yesterday around the Barr Lake banding area (Adams County).  We continued to the boat ramp and found a Great Crested Flycatcher between the banding area and the Pioneer Trail.  This would be the highlight and one of few birds found today.  A Townsend's Warbler was seen down the Pioneer Trail.

The resident Barn Owl (mile 7.2) could not be found today.

Morgan-Smith Wildlife Area (Adams) had a Cassin's Vireo in the limited area we could check (the swollen S. Platte River discouraged much exploring).

Later we returned to Barr Lake and missed the Golden-winged Warbler again.
