Return to Aurora Reservoir

January 10

Richard Stevens:

Temperatures reached 57 degrees in the afternoon.  Winds at Aurora Reservoir were 9-10 mph with gusts to 24 mph.  Several gusts reached 34 mph!

I took Bob to the airport and swung by Aurora Reservoir in the afternoon.  Nothing new was around.  The usual suspects included two Long-tailed Ducks, two Lesser Black-backed Gulls, two Iceland Gulls and a Greater White-fronted Goose.  The White-winged Scoters were not relocated.

I had planned to drive up to Standley Lake and search for the Snowy Owl at dusk.  It was just too exhausting an idea to wade through the horde of cars along the highway.
