Another Unsuccessful Search for the Weld County Snowy Owl; Consolation prizes at Barr Lake State Park

Email sent by Bryan Ehlmann to listserve "cobirders" on 1/26/2014

Hello Birders,

Richard Stevens and I after not finding the Riverside Reservoir Snowy Owl for the second day in a row went looking for the Barr Lake Rusty Blackbirds.

While we did not find them below the dam, we did see a Winter Wren and two Long eared Owls at separate locations.

Ferruginous, Rough legged, and Red tailed Hawks were along the DIA Owl loop.

Winds were steady at 24 mph, gusts to 32 mph. We saw little hope in finding a Short eared Owl.

Good Birding!
