Aurora Reservoir

October 28, 2015

Richard Stevens:

While at doing chores, I stopped at Aurora Reservoir in eastern Arapahoe County.

Most the gulls were again on the shore at mile 2.0.  A hundred or so gulls were south of the marina (southwest corner).  At least on Bonaparte's Gull flew around the marina and swim beach.  At least two Franklin's Gulls flew from mile 2.0, north toward DADS (Denver Arapahoe Disposal Site).

The Common Loon was again in the cove at mile 3.5.  Some Western, Eared, and Horned Grebes swam in the middle of the lake.

Anyone want to comment on the situation where Aurora Reservoir has more gulls than grebes while Cherry Creek Reservoir (9 miles to the west) has more grebes than gulls?  Please leave a comment.
