Barr Lake and Cherry Creek Reservoir State Parks

September 15, 2014

Richard Stevens:

I spent four hours at Barr Lake (Adams County).  Many birders moving around this morning including two Sabine's Gulls, a Lesser Black-backed Gull, eight Pectoral Sandpipers, two Barn Owls (banding station), three Townsend's Warblers, Least Flycatcher, Dusky Flycatcher and Western Wood-pewee.  The Lesser Black-backed Gull was found yesterday by Jerry Petrosky; he wanted another opinion before reporting the Gull.

While my stay at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) on Saturday was seven hours, I only stayed about an hour today.  At least half a dozen Sabine's Gulls and a Caspian Tern were new for me.  A Common Tern and two Townsend's Warblers were left overs from Saturday.
