Windy Afternoon at Cherry Creek Reservoir

April 28, 2019

Richard Stevens:

High temperature today was a warm 78 degrees.

Spent most of the day doing chores; however, I did find time to stop by Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) late in the afternoon.

The storm was blowing in with winds 17-18 mph with gusts to 24 mph.  

High waves made finding any waterfowl difficult.  The southwest winds belted Pelican Point with water.

A few shorebirds walked the Point.  Highlights were fourteen Marbled Godwits, eight Willets, one Snowy Plover and one American Avocet.
