Arapahoe & Douglas County Trip

January 31, 2015

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I drove over to Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe County) this morning.  Temperatures were colder than yesterday (low 50s); winds were mild.

Most of the gulls were on the ice covered lake at mile 3.0.  We picked out the Glaucous Gull and at least one Lesser Black-backed Gull.

We continued south to Castlewood Canyon State Park (Douglas).  No bluebirds were found along Castlewood Canyon Road south of the State Park.

We relocated a Northern Saw-whet Owl back in the State Park.

Only Ring-billed Gulls were later found at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).
