Return to Arapahoe County

April 11, 2019

Richard Stevens:

High temperature today was only 35 degrees.  Winds were measured at 7-8 mph with gusts to 28 mph at eastern Arapahoe County.

Return trip to eastern Arapahoe County to see what the snowstorm brought was a disappointment.

The highlight was a Northern Mockingbird just east of the cut hill along CR 42 at 1.7 miles east of CR 161.

Searches for Mountain Plovers, longspurs, Red-headed Woodpeckers and other uncommon birds were unsuccessful.

Later I stopped at Cherry Creek Reservoir.  Target bird was Sagebrush Sparrow, which are usually found just after a spring snowstorm.  None was found.

I did not look for the Rusty Blackbirds found yesterday.

Again, no owls encountered along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver).
