Subject: [cobirds] Common Redpoll - Denver City Park (Denver County)
​Sharp-eyed John Breitsch spotted a Common Redpoll on our DFO field trip in
Denver City Park on Sunday morning. Female or first year bird was with
mixed flock of House Finch, House Sparrow, Dark-eyed Junco and Black-capped
Chickadee at the retention pond along 17th Avenue, SE of Ferril Lake. Birds
were in junipers and willow bushes along southeast shore of pond, going to
and from the water's edge. Believed to be a new bird for the park.

Also notable: a dark Snow Goose grazing with a large mixed flock of
Cackling and Canada geese on lawns southwest of Denver Museum of Nature and

Although mild weather and lack of ice equals fewer ducks than normal, Duck
Lake has Common Goldeneye, American Wigeon, a single Bufflehead female and
several small rafts of Northern Shovelers. Also seen in park trees: 5 Brown
Creepers, 5 White-breasted Nuthatches, 3 Townsend's Solitaires, 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglets.
