Cherry Creek State Park Gulls

December 5, 2013

Hello cobirders,

I had the chance to drive through Cherry Creek State Park (Arapahoe County) while doing chores this afternoon.  Roads were quite icy, temperature was 5 degrees when I left around 4:00 pm.  Two Lesser Black-backed Gulls were off the southwest boat ramp.  A Northern Shrike was down the road to the Gun Range.  Eight Bald Eagles perched near the Campgrounds.

I had hoped for a Sage Sparrow or Snow Bunting; it was not to be.

Earlier I drove to Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams).  Nothing uncommon was found today.  I passed through the DIA Owl Loop when it was too dark to see much.
