Search for Snowy Owls in Weld & Morgan Counties

December 3, 2015

Richard Stevens:

What a fantastic winter day in Colorado!  Winds were never higher than 8 mph; temperatures reached the low 40s.

Bryan Ehlmann and I exhausted the morning looking for Snowy Owls in the Weld County 8 & CR 23 area.  The previously reported Snowy Owl was not found.

We did drive into Morgan County as far east as Riverside Reservoir.  A several hour search north and east of the reservoir did not turn up any Snowy Owls.

An hour before sunset, we traveled around Lower Latham Reservoir (Weld).  A Marsh Wren was found along County Road 48. A Short-eared Owl was spotted just after sunset!
