Willow Creek Park & Cherry Creek Reservoir

August 29, 2016

Richard Stevens:

While out doing chores, I managed to get in a couple of birding hikes.  For those birders I ran into, yes, those were chores!

I walked Willow Creek at the Park with same name for a couple of hours at first light.  The Carolina Wren reported the last two days did not appear for me.

Later a walk around the Smoky Hill Group Picnic Area at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) found few birds.  Two Western Wood-pewees and a Western Kingbird were all moving around.

Many shorebirds were on the mudflats off the Niedrach Boardwalk at Barr Lake (Adams).  Regrettably, none was uncommon, plenty of Baird's Sandpipers.

Burrowing Owls continue along W. Cargo Road at Third Creek (Adams) and Gun Club Road south of 112th Avenue (Denver).
