Birding Along the Front Range

June 16, 2018

Richard Stevens:

Temperatures reached 81 degrees.  Winds were 4-5 mph with gusts to 19 mph.

After finding three Flammulated Owls along Larimer County Road 44H (Pennock Pass) hours before sunrise, Terry Michaels and I dropped down into Boulder County.  The Tricolored Heron and adult & juvenile Little Blue Heron were easy to spot at Cottonwood Marsh, Walden Ponds.

We relocated one of the nearby Eastern Phoebes along Boulder Creek at 75th Street.

Several Bobolinks were east of Watson Lake at Pella Crossing Park.  Another two Eastern Phoebes were gathering food at the Crane Hollow Bridge.

Our birding day ended with a drive along the DIA Owl Loop.  The pair of Burrowing Owls continues at Trussville Road and 114th Avenue.
