Return to Cherry Creek Reservoir

April 14, 2019

Richard Stevens:

It was a much nicer day with a high of 66 degrees.  Winds were 12-13 mph which probably factored into our pleasant warm day!

After the Masters Golf tournament ended, I stopped by Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).  It was too nice a day to spend it indoors.

My usual loop/hike from Dixon Grove to Augie's Pond did not find any Rusty Blackbirds (now missed on the last four attempts).  A pair of Osprey flew over the Dixon Grove parking area.

Nothing uncommon was encountered at Pelican Point (too many people with dogs running around and chasing the Killdeer).

Pelican Bay also did not add any uncommon bird to my day list.

No owls appeared along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver).  I could not find the Burrowing Owl discovered on April 12 along Third Creek at 100+ yards west of W. Cargo Road.

See previous posts on the condition of Trussville Road and 114th Avenue where the prairie dog mounds have been bulldozed over.
