Cassin's Vireo at Barr Lake, No Common Terns Found in Arapahoe County

August 14, 2017

Richard Stevens:

My first stop today was Barr Lake (Adams).  Highlight was a Cassin's Vireo near mile 8.9.  Two Western Wood-pewees, half a dozen Western Kingbirds and a pair of Eastern Kingbirds continue.  Two House Wrens were also found.  No terns or shorebirds other than Killdeer were encountered.

I decided to search for the Common Tern(s) reported at Aurora Reservoir yesterday.  Unfortunately, I did not relocate them.  I also checked Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe), no terns.  Only a few American White Pelicans, a couple of Double-crested Cormorants and a dozen Snowy Egrets were found.  A few California Gulls were among less than 50 Ring-billed Gulls.
