Birding In Weld County

January 15, 2017

Richard Stevens:

Terry Michaels and I birded Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Weld).  In four hours, we found three Long-eared Owls in the northern windbreak, a Barn Owl, and two White - throated Sparrows in the southwestern windbreak.

A search for Lapland Longspurs at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area and the fields to the east was unsuccessful.

Afterwards, I drove over to Box Elder Creek at Weld County Road 4.  The three Rusty Blackbirds were again along the Creek, north of CR 4.  Still too far away for a respectable photo.
