Visit to Aurora Reservoir in a Snowstorm

February 15, 2018

Richard Stevens:

While doing chores we drove through Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) this afternoon.  A blizzard like snowstorm came from the east around 4:00 pm.

We managed to scope the lake just one time before visibility became 20 yards or so.  Winds were clocked at 17-18 mph with gusts to 31 mph.  Snow was flying parallel to the ground.

One White-winged Scoter and the two adult female Long-tailed Ducks were the only uncommon birds found before lost of visibility.  

Snow continued east of DIA Airport on our return trip home.
