Arapahoe County Lakes and the DIA Owl Loop

March 12, 2016

Richard Stevens:

Rebecca Kosten and I stopped at several lakes while out doing chores today. 

The Glaucous Gull was on the southwest marina when we passed through Cherry Creek State Park (Arapahoe).  Photos on the Colorado Birding Society's website (photo library link).

An American Pipit was walking on the rocks at the Lake Loop.

We joined Bill Cryder at Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) and walked down to the south side of the lake.  A Lesser Black-backed Gull was in a group of 300+ gulls at mile 3.0.

In the afternoon, we searched for Eastern Screech-Owls in Arapahoe County.  One was relocated at Ketring Park.  A second was relocated along Highline Canal.  A third was found at a private yard in Centennial, CO.

No Short-eared Owls appeared along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver) this evening.  We did see the Burrowing Owl inside the chain link fence at Trussville Street & 114th Avenue.
