On Dave Leatherman's reminder that COBirds info is sparse if we see things but don't post, and the info is helpful to others when we do post, I'm backtracking to say that on Tuesday the 7th there were about seven Great-tailed Grackles near Barr Lake, on E 136th just E of I-76 (Adams Co). I know in the past that they've been seen on the E side of Barr Lake in winter, off of Piccadilly Rd, sometimes in large flocks. These few birds on the W side stuck me as probable early arrivals.
Per the discussion a year or so ago on the benefit of COBirds, my take is this: eBird is invaluable, the data is extremely helpful on many levels. But COBirds tells the tale. It's where I really learn a lot.
