Here is the eBird information for the 2nd CO Bronzed Cowbird sighting.
Wed May 08, 2013 - 9:00 AM - 105 Monroe St. Pritchett, CO, by Jim Dennis
Observed for about 20 minutes at a distance of approx. 30 feet (and photographed). Bird showed no hint of brown head or hood, bill was larger and appeared more massive than brown-headed, head and bill shape was straighter and not rounded, color was shiny or iridescent black and most striking were the blood red eyes (visible in the photographs).

There is for sure one accepted record from the Colorado Birds Records Committee of Bronzed Cowbird. It was in a yard in Lakewood (if I remember correctly) in 1990 in May, and stayed a few months. Some of us around back then, didn't see that one though (like me). I'm not sure if there is another documented record for Colorado or not. I think there was one reportedly seen in Baca County in 2013, though not sure it was documented for the CBRC or not. Those are only two I've ever heard of from Colorado, unless this one.
