Returning to Denver

January 6, 2016

Richard Stevens:

After a couple of hours sleep, Terry and I headed down Phantom Canyon.  Last week's Northern Saw-whet Owl was not found this morning.

Last week's sighting of a Spotted Owl was not repeated either.

Early in the morning, we observed three species of Rosy Finches in Victor and then headed for home.

After dropping Terry off, I passed by the Platte River Birding Area on my way home.  I was not able to find a reported Eurasian Wigeon (turned out the birder recanted the sighting).

A walk from 74th avenue to 88th avenue found the pair of Barrow's Goldeneyes in the open water at the north end of the Northern West Gravel Lakes.

No Short-eared Owls were discovered tonight along the DIA Owl Loop.
