Owling Around Denver

January 22, 2016

Terry Michaels and I got out seeking owls in the afternoon.  Temperatures reached the high 40s; winds were 10 mph, gusts to 14 mph.

We encountered two Long-eared Owls at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Adams).  The previously found Swamp Sparrow was not relocated.

A walk along the Legacy Trail at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams) found two Barn Owls and at least six Long-eared Owls.

At sunset, we drove to Golden Gate Canyon State Park (Jefferson) and White Ranch Open Space (Jefferson).  No Northern Pygmy-Owls were detected tonight.  Two Great Horned Owls called at the entrance to the State Park.
