Subject: [cobirds] Caracara in Weld County
This morning, I walked some of that area where the caracara was reportedly
seen, but was extremely skeptical of the report, considering that there are
regular sightings of ospreys and immature and mature bald eagles in that
area. As I was walking out, though, I saw a bird soaring very high, and
put my binoculars on it. Unfortunately, I was unable to make a
determination of what king of bird that was, but it looked somewhat similar
to the caracaras I saw a few years ago in Florida. The view was about 45
degrees from the sun and I was unable to see light and dark areas. I tried
my camera, but could not get the telephoto to pick it up, and then the bird
disappeared in the sky. It was about straight up from 71st Avenue and right
over the Poudre River
I would enjoy hearing from others who have or are searching the area. I may
go back tomorrow for another look.
