Another Unsuccessful Snowy Owl Search

January 22, 2018

Richard Stevens:

Temperatures did not warm up much today.  Highs were 29 degrees.  Winds were a mild 6 mph with gusts to 12 mph.

Terry Michaels and I searched for hours for the Jewell-Yale Loop (Arapahoe) Snowy Owl.  We enjoyed no success in finding the white bird on a landscape of snow.

We stopped by Aurora Reservoir and found the two White-winged Scoters and at least two Long-tailed Ducks made it through the yesterday's storm.

Our drive took us to eastern Arapahoe County on some dicey roads (ice and snow).  No Owls were found.
