Birding Around the Rocky Mountain Arsenal

April 26, 2018

Richard Stevens:

Rebecca Kosten and I drove through Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams).  Nothing uncommon was found.  We did skip the Wildlife Drive that is enclosed because of the Bison.  Still no Western Kingbirds or Red-headed Woodpeckers are around.

We hiked to the First Creek Trailhead.  The Harris's Sparrow started out near the chain link fence (Denver County) and later followed half a dozen White-crowned Sparrows to the woodpile west of Buckley Road (Adams).

While driving the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver) two Burrowing Owls were observed at W. Cargo Road & Third Creek.  Another two Burrowing Owls were along Gun Club Road at 1.7 miles south of 112th Avenue.

No Short-eared Owls to report this evening.

Temperatures reached 59 degrees today.  Winds were 14-15 mph with gusts to 30 mph.
