Return to First Creek and Buckley Road

June 2, 2016

Richard Stevens:

I walked the First Creek Trail before noon.  Winds were 6 mph; temperatures were warm in the middle 80s by noon.

Nothing uncommon was found along the trail between Buckley Road & 56th avenue.  A couple of Western Wood-pewees, Yellow Warblers, a Spotted Towhee,  four Snowy Egrets, two Spotted Sandpipers and 2 Killdeer were just about it.

Then I walked north up Buckley Road for a mile or so.  A Northern Mockingbird was west of the First Creek Trailhead (inside the Arsenal)

I continued north far enough to see Burrowing Owls both in Adams & Denver Counties.
