Bob and all -
The law is quite clear. Entities such as Coors may query you with regards to your activities, but standing on McIntyre (a public road) and taking pictures of the "Coors Ponds" is completely within your rights.
I would politely invite them to call the JeffCo Sheriff's office and have an officer explain the law to them (all the while continuing to look at and photograph the birds). I suspect the Coors Company lawyers would be appalled at their security folks' behavior.
