Subject: [cobirds] Probable Northern Shrike, lesser Scaup, and question about harrassing geese w/fireworks -Arapahoe Co

At about 5:00 p.m. today, while biking along the Platte along the Broken
Tee golf course in Englewood, I saw what I thought was, at first, a Clark's
nutcracker. Upon review of eBird data, a Northern Shrike seems much more
likely, particularly as Art Hudak posted one at Centennial Park (1/2 mile
south of my location) in January. I saw a lesser scaup on the river close
by. Both were in Arapahoe Co.

As I approached the bridge over the Platte, directly opposite the golf
course, a VERY loud firework was set off by a course marshal. It scared
the you know what out of me, but it was actually aimed at a flock of geese
on the course. Is it legal to shoo geese away this way? I certainly
didn't appreciate it, on their behalf or mine!
