I took my dog on a brief walk before sunset at deKoevend Park in Centennial (Arapahoe) this evening (11/10). We spotted the Fox Sparrow on our second pass of the feeders at the southwesternish edge of the park. On the way out, we also spotted a Hermit Thrush, foraging, recklessly, out in the open of the dry canal, under the gaze of a screech owl. I thought I'd spotted this bird on my last trip through the park (11/8), but the sighting was too brief and bad to report. Last year, a Hermit Thrush likely spent the winter at deKoevend; I had sightings of one there in October, November, January, and March. We'll see if this one lasts.
