Barr Lake, Aurora Reservoir & DIA Owl Loop

February 25, 2017

Richard Stevens:

Temperatures only reached the high 40s today; winds were 6-8 mph with gusts to 14 mph.

Most of the day was spent doing chores.  I did find time to stop at Barr Lake (Adams).  One Barn Owl and two Long-eared Owls were relocated.

Driving home from Aurora in the afternoon, I passed by Aurora Reservoir.  The White-winged Scoter was north of the mouth of Senac Cove.

No Short-eared Owls appeared during a drive of the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver).  No Burrowing Owls have returned yet.  A Sage Thrasher was on the fence at Gun Club Road and Third Creek.
