Parker to Aurora Reservoir

September 24, 2018

High temperature today was 73 degrees.  Afternoon, winds were 16-17 mph with gusts to 22 mph.

After lunch today, Rebecca and I had some business in Parker.  We also received a text message about an Eastern Towhee sighting at a friend's feeders.  Unfortunately, the Eastern Towhee did not return in the two hours we watched the feeder.

Best I can do on location is along East Homestead Road after it passes East Robin Road.  E. Homestead Road runs east of North Pine Drive, south of East Lincoln Avenue (Douglas County).  My friend does not want people going up his long driveway.  Perhaps the bird will move along Homestead Road?

Afterwards Rebecca and I passed by Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe).  Hundreds of gulls swam off the swim beach.  We picked out a juvenile Sabine's Gull (possibly two).  

Another sighting looked more like an adult Bonaparte's Gull than Little Gull or Black-headed Gull.

No Burrowing Owls were found along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver Counties).
