Rocky Mountain Arsenal & Barr Lake

May 8, 2016

Richard Stevens:

I returned to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams).  The two Eastern Phoebes were again along the canal along 64th street, just west of Potomac Avenue.

Nothing much was on Lake Ladora or Lower Derby Lake or at Marys Lake.

Next, I spent a couple of hours birding Barr Lake (Adams).  I walked from the Visitor's Center to the boat ramp and back to the western end of the Niedrach boardwalk.

I thought the recent rainstorms would bring some migrating birds.  They did not.  First of the season birds included: Bullock's Oriole and Western Wood-pewee.

Yesterday's Eastern Bluebirds and Cassin's Kingbird were not found.
