Banner Lakes Wildlife Area & Barr Lake State Park

April 25, 2018

Richard Stevens:

What a different day from yesterday.  Temperatures reached 66 degrees.  Winds were 6-7 mph with gusts to 10 mph.

Terry Michaels and I returned to Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Weld).  Nothing uncommon was found.  The Long-eared Owl was not relocated today.

Note: the northern ponds are closed until July 15; we only birded south of Hwy 52.

Birds encountered included two House Wrens, six Yellow-rumped Warblers, an Orange-crowned Warbler, two Spotted Towhees, a Gray Catbird and many American Robins.

Later we missed the Eastern Phoebe reported yesterday at Barr Lake (Adams).  One Barn Owl was relocated.
