Another Trip to Cherry Creek Reservoir

December 19, 2018

Richard Stevens:

High temperature today was 48 degrees.  Winds at 15-16 mph with gusts to 22 mph made for a cold afternoon.

I managed to get over to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) for an hour.  The two Rusty Blackbirds were back walking around the north end of the pond northwest of the swim beach.

From the Lake Loop, I found the two Long-tailed Ducks and a Red-breasted Merganser.  The Long-tails were among Common Goldeneye just as Davie suggested.  The male Red-breasted Merganser was in the huge group of Common Goldeneyes.

Two Bald Eagles stood on the ice edge.
