Birding A Couple of Locations In Denver County

January 21, 2019

Richard Stevens:

I made two stops on my way downtown Denver today.  It was another great Colorado winter day.  High temperature reached 54 degrees.  Winds were 16-17 mph.

The four Rusty Blackbirds were again along the First Creek (Denver County) north of the horse corrals.

It took an hour and twenty minutes before the Harris's Sparrow was relocated behind the Bluff Lake Nature Area maintenance building.  

Look for a small flock of 6-8 White-crowned Sparrows crossing the gravel paths between the rabbit brush.  The Harris's Sparrow is usually with them, however does not linger on the paths.

A major snowstorm is predicted for the metro area tomorrow (Tuesday, 1/22).  If roads allow travel,  it is a good time to search for longspurs and Snow Buntings around the country roads around Denver International Airport.
