Barr Lake and Cherry Creek Reservoir

November 2, 2014

Richard Stevens:

Spent most of the day doing chores but managed an hour or so of birding.

A Lesser Black-backed Gull and 150+ American White Pelicans were observed from the closed boat ramp at mile 7.5; Barr Lake (Adams County).

At Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe), I scoped the lake several times.  It took four passes before I counted three Common Loons (two in the eastern corner, one west of the swim beach).  A Pacific Loon stayed along the handicapped fisherperson dock.

Three plus Bonaparte's Gulls and a Lesser Black-backed Gull were also found.  The many (dozens) of California Gulls struck me as having many shades to their mantle color.

No owls showed along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams) this evening.
