Drive Through Cherry Creek State Park

February 6, 2017

Richard Stevens:

The day was filled with chores.  Temperatures were in the lower 50s; winds were 8-10 mph. 

I passed through Cherry Creek State Park (Arapahoe) and scoped the lake, now only 60 percent ice covered.  Two Bald Eagles stood on ice in the middle of the lake.

No uncommon gulls were detected.  A Northern Shrike was southeast of the gun range entrance.

Eight American Robins flew about the entrance to the Prairie Loop.  I thought a Varied Thrush was among them.  Unfortunately, a truck drove by and scattered the Robins and I was unable to relocate the possible Thrush.
