Another Attempt to Get a Long-eared Owl Photo

January 18, 2016

Richard Stevens:

Purportedly, the temperature achieved 51 degrees today; winds were only 3mph.  Nevertheless, it felt quite cold.

I hiked the mile and a half below the Barr Lake (Adams County) dam hoping to get photos of a Long-eared Owl.  Eventually I found four owls in groups of two at different locations.

Regrettably, they were either a good distance away from me or deep in thick bushes.  I only acquired poor witness photos of the owls.

Two Song Sparrows, one American Tree Sparrow, a Wilson's Snipe and Virginia Rail were found along the canal below the dam.
