Subject: [cobirds] Harriman Lake Park plus a couple more 12/5
DFO's field trip to the Southwestern Metro Area visited a few lakes and
other goosey places. Our highlight was what I think is a *Least Flycatcher*
at Harriman Lake Park (photos and notes in eBird checklist:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S40932085

I'm sure it is the same bird I saw yesterday very briefly in challenging
windy conditions. This morning it was much calmer. We did not see the bird
as we were walking out shortly after 9 am, but coming back thru after 10:15
it had warmed from 21 to 33 degrees and the bird was evident. On 12/4 it
was right along the path, and today it flew from near the path the boundary
fence line just to the south, where there is a row of pines and junipers
(immediately west of the fire station). The bird foraged along that fence
line and in the neighboring yard and was easy to study. Other highlights at
Harriman were a juv. *Harris's Sparrow* in the area near the water facility
structure, with a down-mountain *Mountain Chickadee *and a *Spotted Towhee*
there, too. The lake had 2 Wood Ducks and 3 Canvasbacks amid the other
regulars, and a *Bald Eagle*.

Robert A. Easton Park had a first of season *Greater Scaup*. Clement Park
had three *Snow Geese*.
