Birding Up Interstate 76

February 25, 2015

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I took advantage of the break between snowstorms and birded up Interstate 76.  Temperatures were in the 20s; however, winds less than 10 mph.

We found three Long-eared Owls at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (along the western windbreak of Ponds 7 to 8; Weld County).

We did not find the previously reported Glaucous Gull or any uncommon gulls.  Four Long-eared Owls and a pair of Great Horned Owls were the consolation.

We returned to Denver before the snowstorm hit.
