Search for Uncommon Geese in Adams County

January 10, 2020

Richard Stevens:

Temperatures only reached 30 degrees.  High were 12-13 mph with gusts to 17 mph.

We tried to stay away from traffic today.  It is a difficult goal in today's crowded metro area.

Rebecca and I spent the late morning and early afternoon searching for uncommon geese in Adams County.  While hundreds of geese were observed only one Greater White-fronted Goose was found (no Brants).

The Greater White-fronted Goose was on the ice at the Montbello Recreation Center.

Places searched included Gateway Recreation Pond (many geese), Gateway Pond, Star K Ranch, and Barr Lake State Park.

Again, no Short-eared Owls appeared at the DIA Owl Loop.  Today we parked at 88th avenue and Toll Road location.
