Quick Stop at Cherry Creek Reservoir

September 9, 2018

Richard Stevens:

Back from an enjoyable and successful birding trip to Baca & Las Animas Counties,   Rebecca and I passed through Cherry Creek State Park on our way to dinner.

The Mew Gull was again and still on the little sandy beach at the Cherry Creek Reservoir dam trail, northwest of Pelican Bay.

I stopped by the Bird Platform Area, Prairie Loop to look for shorebirds.  Killdeer were the only ones there.

Great stop however, four Caspian Terns stood on the mud flats east of creek.  An adult Nashville Warbler fluttered about the willow near the large rocks at the end of the trail.

Nothing uncommon was at Pelican Point; it was a nice welcome back to Denver.
