Another Day Around Denver

May 6, 2014

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I returned to Wheat Ridge Greenbelt (Prospect Park) at sunrise.  The Northern Parula was relocated about 100 yards east of the Footbridge over Clear Creek.  A Cooper's Hawk was found farther east.  No Eastern Screech-Owls could be found this trip.

We stopped at Matthews-Winter Open Space on our way to Red Rocks Park (Jefferson).  A male Summer Tanager surprised us (along Mount Vernon Creek, behind the restroom).  A couple of House Wren chattered the whole time we walked the park.

No Golden-crowned Sparrow or Fox Sparrow was found in the hour we waited behind the Trading Post at Red Rocks Park.

After dropping Bryan off, I heard about the Worm-eating Warbler at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) and headed over that way.  Unfortunately, I arrived about 50 minutes since that last report.  The warbler was not reported after that.

Burrowing Owls, no Short-eared Owls were observed along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams).
