Search for Snowy Owls in Adams County

November 28,, 2015

Richard Stevens:

I drove around Adams County today in search of Snowy Owls and Snow Buntings.  Neither was found in about four hours.

Nothing uncommon came to the feeder area at the Barr Lake Visitor's Center.  A Lesser Black-backed Gull was observed flying off the boat ramp.

Highlights of the afternoon were a Short-eared Owl along 112th Avenue, east of Trussville and a Prairie Falcon on the wind sheer monitor along 120th avenue, just west of the DIA fenced runway.

A late Lincoln's Sparrow was found in brush along 138th Avenue while I was searching for Great-tailed Grackles.

Six Great-tailed Grackles were at the town of Barr (just south of the railroad tracks on Lake Street).
