Broomfield County Northern Parula

June 22, 2018

Richard Stevens:

Temperatures in the afternoon in Lafayette were 89 degrees.  Winds were 6-7 mph with gusts to 36 mph along the DIA Owl Loop.

When I arrived at Interlocked the previously reported Northern Parula was singing at the southwest corner of the pond south of 200 Interlocked Blvd.  It took another hour to get a couple of seconds view of the bird.  It came down for a drink of water and then disappeared toward the east end of the lake.

Other birds observed included two Yellow Warblers, a Hermit Thrush, four Bushtits and many Robins.

The lone Burrowing Owl continues along Gun Club Road at 0.2 miles south of the Colfax & Toll Road interchange.

No Short-eared Owls appeared along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver) this evening.  The pair of Burrowing Owls continues at the northwest corner of Trussville Road and 114th avenue.
