A Slow Birding Day Around Denver

January 16, 2016

Richard Stevens:

Once again, I forgot that hunters are below the Barr Lake dam on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  Instead, I tried to find some birds previously reported this week.

A stop at the South Platte River and Evans Blvd (Denver County) did not find the Barrow's Goldeneye reported by Judith Henderson (1/4) and Jane Stulp (1/11).

It was a miss on the Barrow's Goldeneye at Overland Pond Park (Denver) found by Art Hudak (1/10).

The Greater White-fronted Goose was again missed at Denver City Park (Denver) as was the one reported at Cheesman Park (Denver).

Another try to find the Greater Scaup at the South Platte River and 74th Avenue (Adams) was a bust.

I sat at Third Creek and Gun Club Road (Denver) thirty minutes before sunset.  No Short-eared Owls appeared this afternoon.
