A Drive Around Adams County

March 19, 2015

Richard Stevens:

Rebecca Kosten and I enjoyed this fantastic Colorado winter day with a drive around Adams County.  Temperatures reached into the 70s; winds were less than 6 mph.

We missed the Eastern Bluebirds reported by Candice Johnson at Rocky Mountain Arsenal on 3/17.  At least one pair of Greater Scaup remains on Lower Derby Lake.

A drive around the DIA Owl Loop found two Burrowing Owls at the infamous prairie dog village at 3.4 miles east of Tower Road & 96th avenue.

At dusk, a Short-eared Owl was observed flying across the field east of Gun Club Road, south of 114th avenue.  We were parked south of 96th avenue, scoping the fields.
