DIA Owl Loop and Adams County

Hello birders,

Rich Stevens, Bryan Ehlmann and I looked again for the Burrowing Owl at Trussville and 114th.  It wasn't found.  Richard photographed a Snow Bunting with hundreds of Horned Larks and at least two Lapland Longspurs along Quency Street, sometimes called Cargo Street.  The flock flew back and forth across the road at the top of the hill south of the prairie dog town, 3.4 miles east of Tower Road and 96th avenue.  The birds landed on the fence and the cut sunflower field to the west of the road.

We found a Short eared Owl along 112th, east of Queensburg Street.  I believe 112th, may have been lower number.  It is the road to the Aviation Offices along the east side of the airport, south of the Frontier maintenance building.  SEOWs have been seen here before.  We also tried Gun Club Road which is west of the northern runways.

Good Birding!
