Jewell Wetlands in Aurora

May 24, 2016

Richard Stevens:

Between rain storms, I drove over to the Jewell Wetlands in Aurora (Arapahoe).  Over the years, I have visited the wetlands 31 times.  In all those trips, the only bird I recorded was a Wilson's Warbler  (May 29, 2014).

A Black-and-white Warbler was reported yesterday.  All I found hiking through the tall wet grasses was many mosquitoes and two ticks. 

I would rather try to pick up a rattlesnake than pick off a tick.
