Christmas Day 2018

December 25, 2018

Richard Stevens:

High temperature on Christmas Day was only 22 degrees.  Winds were 4-5 mph with gusts only reaching 8 mph.

While traveling to visit friends and a relative near Cherry Creek Reservoir, Rebecca and I briefly stopped at the State Park.

The two Long-tailed Ducks swam near a group of Common Goldeneyes in the middle of the lake.  The two Rusty Blackbirds were again up the drainage between the main road and the swim beach pond.

Later we found a Burger King open on a day when most businesses were closed. 

Afterwards we walked around Bluff Lake Nature Area (Denver County) the hour before sunset.  The Harris's Sparrow was again loosely associated with a flock of six or so White-crowned Sparrows.
