Thanks for all the ebird reports and the Cobirds posting.
I see from ebird that a Brant was seen at Aurora Res yesterday, but it was
seeing flying away around 8:30am. So, still no evidence that there is more
than one in the Denver area. Also, Steve Mlodinow reported two
Glaucous-winged Gulls: I think he has to be counting the bird that we saw,
but weren't bold enough to call Glaucous-winged Gull. I looked for the
Stub-tailed Wren this morning around 8am, but couldn't find it.
