Windy Afternoon at Arapahoe County Reservoirs

March 17, 2018

Winds were outrageous today.  After taking my tax papers to Parker, I returned by way of Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe).  Temperatures were 61 degrees.  However, anemometer readings were 19-20 mph with gusts to 32 mph.

I scoped Aurora Reservoir four times and only found a pair of Buffleheads.  Perhaps the waterfowl were at the northwest corner using the dam as a windbreak.  Hundreds of Ring-billed Gulls swam in a raft.  Nothing uncommon was found.

Two of the four Long-eared Owls were at their usual spot at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).
