Arapahoe County Reservoirs

April 28, 2016

Richard Stevens:

While taking a break from chores I drove over to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).  The Willets reported by Edward Donnan earlier in the day were not found during my drive.

Three anglers walked on the eastern sand spit, one of the better locations to find shorebirds in the park.

Few birds were on the water, while hundreds of swallows flew over the lake.  The majority was Tree Swallows; however, I did pick out the other five common species were found: Bank, Northern Rough-winged, Violet-green, Cliff and Barn.

Nothing uncommon was found when I scoped Aurora Reservoir for about 45 minutes.

Nine Burrowing Owls were found when I passed through the DIA Owl Loop (Denver/Adams).
