Aurora Reservoir, Rocky Mountain Arsenal & Cherry Creek Reservoir

November 29, 2019

Richard Stevens:

Temperatures only reached 25 degrees today.  Anomometer readings hovered between 11-12 mph.

Rebecca and I returned to Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe County).  Most gulls were too far away to id properly.  We did see the continuing Common Loon.

We then visited Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams) to see if the adult Lesser Black-backed Gull was still there.  No gulls or waterfowl were around as both Lake Ladora and Lower Derby Lake were ice covered.

After visiting friends, we passed through Cherry Creek State Park (Arapahoe) at 4:00 pm.  Heavy fog reduced visibility to less than 30 feet.  Yesterday's large gulls and the Yellow-billed Loon could not be seen.
