Search for Birds After the Snowstorm

February 20, 2015

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I slowly drove the DIA Owl Loop (Adams County) which had received much snow yesterday.  We could not find the Burrowing Owl reported yesterday.

Afterwards we drove around Adams County.  A Greater Scaup was found on the Gravel Pit at Brighton Road & 120th Avenue.

Two Barrow's Goldeneyes were on the South Platte near the green/white water tower (south of 88th avenue, South Platte Birding Area).

Nothing uncommon was found at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams).

We ended our birding day at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Weld County).  Two Long-eared Owls were in the windbreak west of Ponds 7 & 8.  A Great Horned Owl called from somewhere around Pond 13.
