Today (1/30) I crossed paths with single *Greater White-fronted Geese* at three spots: (1) Hine Lake in Robert A. Easton Regional Park, (2) at Clement Park (right along "frontage road" near Columbine Library, and (3) at Summit Ridge Middle School at Simms x Coal Mine. I'm quite sure there were at least two individuals among these three observations. Harriman Lake had a *Harris's Sparrow* along the south lake shore with other sparrows in the same spot where several Harris's were seen this past November (near the little beige building), a *Marsh Wren* was calling from a patch of cattails, a *Ferruginous Hawk *was flying over the fields to the north of the lake, and a *Prairie Falcon* was perched along Quincy.
On 1/29 a 1st cycle *Lesser Black-backed Gull* was at Cooley Lake in South Platte Park (Arapahoe).
