Rocky Mountain Arsenal & Cherry Creek State Park

November 23, 2019

Richard Stevens:

Temperature reached 57 degrees today.  Winds were 6-7 mph with gusts to 11 mph.

To enjoy this superb fall day, Rebecca and I drove through the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams).  The Lesser Black-backed Gull continued on the east shore of Lake Ladora.

Four Common Goldeneyes, pair of Hooded Mergansers and a Western Grebe were on the Lake.  A first year Barrow's Goldeneye was a surprise find.

Afterwards we drove to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) on the way to dinner.    The Yellow-billed Loon continued to swim in the middle of the Lake.  At least four Bonaparte's Gulls flew by and dove in attempts to catch their dinner.
