Even Colder Day at Cherry Creek Reservoir

December 28, 2018

Richard Stevens:

Quite a cold day, high temperature was of 22 degrees.  Winds were 5-6 mph with gusts to 8 mph.  COLD

I ventured into the cold for less than 30 minutes at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County).  

A rapid walk around the Cherry Creek Reservoir swim beach pond found the pair of Rusty Blackbirds up the western drainage.  They walked in and out of the cattails 20 yards south of the main road.

Then I hurried back to my warm car.  I did not attempt to scope the Lake for the Long-tailed Ducks, etc.

Thirty minutes before sunset I sat in my car parked at 88th avenue, east of the C470 Bridge.  No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening.
