Subject: [cobirds] Sora and other birds Larimer County
Yesterday did some birding around Fort Collins and found a few oddities -
for this time of year. A couple Soras were talking at River Bend Ponds
Natural Area just to the northwest of the parking area off Cheryl St. Also
saw 5 Snow Geese (3 white - 2 intermediate), 5 Great White-fronted Geese, a
Red-breasted Merganser female, and a Ruddy Duck at the lake across the
street from Kingfisher point parking area to the north. I was birding with
Lori Pivonka.

In addition to the above, had a Cackling Goose that had a normal head and
feet, but an all white body with light gray primaries. It looked like a
goose that sat in a bleach bath. It did not look like a hybrid, but may
have been, more just melanistic feathers. The most interesting goose I
have seen in a long time.
