Arapahoe County Reservoirs

December 24, 2017

 Richard Stevens:

Rebecca and checked out the Arapahoe reservoirs this afternoon.  Temperatures only reached 29 degrees.  Anemometer readings at Aurora Reservoir were 6-7 mph with gusts to 13 mph.

Nothing unusual was found at Cherry Creek Reservoir or Quincy Reservoir.

The pair of White-winged Scoters and two Long-tailed Ducks are still on Aurora Reservoir.  The thousands of White-cheeked Geese made finding other waterfowl quite difficult to find.

No Short-eared Owls appeared along the DIA Owl Loop again this evening.

Note: Aurora Reservoir is closed on Christmas & New Years days.
