Slow Drive Through Rocky Mountain Arsenal

March 16, 2018

It was another windy winter day.  Winds were measured at 13-14 mph with gusts to 30 mph.  One gust topped 39 mph.  High temperature was 54 degrees.

Rebecca and I drove the Wildlife Tour at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams).  Migration has not started there yet.  I scoped Lower Derby Lake for 30 minutes or so.  Nothing I would call a Greater Scaup was found.  The Lake does have a nothing collection of common waterfowl, unfortunately too far away for photos.

Waves were quite high at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) and Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe).  There was not much to see on the lakes.  We watched an American Crow try to fly into the wind.  It stayed in one spot for minutes.
