DIA Owl Loop and First Creek Trail

January 24, 2017

Richard Stevens:

It was another cold winter day.  Partly sunny, temperatures reached 44 degrees; winds were 7-8 mph.

I drove the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver) before sunrise.  A Short-eared Owl was observed flying east along Third Creek (east of Gun Club Road, Denver County).

Later I walked the First Creek Trail (Denver).  The Harris's Sparrow was first observed in the large brush pile and then in the high yellow grasses northeast of the horse corrals.  This corner is 1.3 miles from the Buckley Road & 56th avenue parking area.

Much later I passed through Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).  One Ross's Goose was at nearby Greenwood Village Park.  Nothing uncommon was found at Cherry Creek Reservoir.
