Another Drive In Eastern Arapahoe County

June 25, 2016

Richard Stevens:

I took Patty McGuire and Jake & Jamey Groat on a ride on the Eastern Arapahoe County roads this morning.  Temperatures were warmer than yesterday (into the low 90s) and winds were 11+ mph.

Two Dickcissels were relocated north of the electric building along Strasburg Road approximately 4.5 miles south of I70.  The Cassin's Kingbird remained along CR 161 at 0.4 miles south of CR 30.  A Northern Mockingbird continued to sing along Knudtson Road at 1.0 miles east of CR 161.  Two Cassin's Kingbirds were there today.

Much of the day remained and we drove to Jackson Reservoir (Morgan).  One Long-eared Owl was found at the western Campgrounds.

We decided not to continue to Prewitt Reservoir (Washington) and look for the Western Gull.  Instead drove the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver) and relocated a Burrowing Owl at Trussville Road & 114th Avenue.
