Prewitt Reservoir, Jackson Reservoir & Aurora Reservoir

December 22, 2017

Richard Stevens:

Temperatures reached the middle 40s today.  Winds were 9 mph with gusts to 14 mph at Aurora Reservoir.

Terry Michaels and I returned from eastern Colorado. We relocated two Eastern Screech-Owls at Prewitt Reservoir (about 4:00 am), and then after sunrise found two Long-eared Owls at Jackson Reservoir. Not much else moving about.

After dropping Terry off, I returned home by way of Aurora Reservoir. Scoping the lake from the pavilion #4, upper swim beach parking area, I relocated the two Long-tailed Ducks about 100 yards directly off shore. The pair of White-winged Scoters was in the same line another couple hundred yards east.
