Arapahoe County Trip

August 18, 2015

Richard Stevens:

After a late start, I drove the Jewell-Yale loop (Arapahoe) to enjoy the afternoon away from traffic.  Target bird was the Ash-throated Flycatcher reported earlier (it was not found).

Birding was slower than others had reported in the past week.  Only two Loggerhead Shrikes and two Western Kingbirds were found.  Numerous birds were reported a few days earlier.

The "bird of the day" was American Kestrel.  Two male and seven female or immature were along E. Yale Avenue.

One Sage Thrasher continued along East Jewell Avenue (near the entrance of the paint ball field).

DIA Owl Loop (Adams) partial drive, seven Burrowing Owls, no Short-eared Owls.
