Cherry Creek Reservoir and Stonegate North Pond

August 25, 2015

Richard Stevens:

In the early afternoon, I drove down to the Stonegate North Pond (Douglas County).  Seven species of shorebirds walked the mudflats around this swallow small pond created by runoff.

Several photos of the Pectoral Sandpiper were added to the Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library (

On the way home, I stopped at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).  Winds were calm and temperatures in the high 80s.

A Townsend's Warbler was loosely associated with three Yellow-rumped Warblers working the locust trees between the Smoky Hill group picnic area and the swim beach.
