A Rewarding Drive Around the DIA Owl Loop

Hello cobirders,

Another March day in Colorado, although it is getting too hot at near 80 degrees.  Winds 12+ mph.

While doing chores I drove the DIA Owl Loop (Adams County).  Two Burrowing Owls still at 114th and Trussville although they have moved farther from the road (good for them).  Another four Burrowing Owls are at the prairie dog village at 3.4 miles east of 96th avenue and Tower Road.  This area is at 3rd Creek and road (Quency or Cargo, differs upon which map you are reading).

Bill Hutchinson pointed out a Short-eared Owl perched in a tree along 3rd Creek and east side of Quency at 2:00 pm.  Probably be there until sunset.

That is all the time I had.

Continued Good Birding!
