Birding Around Denver

May 5, 2014

Richard Stevens:

Today, temperatures reached to the high 70s; summer is coming.  Winds were calm.

We received an email from Angela Koehler that she had photographed a Carolina Wren visiting her Denver yard.  I went over to talk to her; regrettably, the Carolina Wren did not come back to her yard in the two hours we waited.

I then walked west down the alley for a block.  On the way back, I played a Carolina Wren recording and the Carolina Wren popped up from bushes in the yard just west of Angela's!

The Marbled Godwits reported earlier at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) were not found when I drove through the park.

Half a dozen Burrowing Owls were observed along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams, 3.4 miles east of Tower Road & 96th avenue).
