Birding Arapahoe County and a final 2015 Denver Eastern Screech-Owl Count

October 2, 2015

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann and I stayed up all night and drove eastern Arapahoe County about an hour before sunrise.  We encountered a Barn Owl along Hudson Road (between 56th and 26th avenues).

Two Sage Thrashers remained along East Yale Avenue (about 0.2 miles west of Arapahoe County Road 97.

We relocated a Townsend's Warbler in the trees west of the Cherry Creek Reservoir swim beach.

October 2 (night into October 3)

A final Eastern Screech-Owl count.  Winds again were 12 mph, gusts to 18 mph.  Only five owls were encountered this night: University (2), County Club (1), Cherry Creek (1) and Whitter (1).
