Subject: [cobirds] Quick check-in from Lamar, Prowers Co., Feb. 9
Hey, all. With Sharon Stiteler and Hannah Floyd and Andrew Floyd, I'm
having a grand old freezing cold time down here at the High Plains Snow
Goose Festival, Lamar, Prowers County. Earlier today, Fri., Feb. 9, at
Willow Creek Park, behind Lamar Community College, we saw an *auduboni
Hermit Thrush* and an *iliaca Fox Sparrow,* along with more expected birds
like *Red-bellied Woodpecker, Myrtle Warbler,* *Audubon's Warbler,* and *Northern
Cardinal.* A *Great-tailed Grackle* was inclined to sing, for whatever
reason, this dreary afternoon. And an oddity was a leucistic dark-morph *Red-tailed
Hawk.* Think about it.

Hard to believe, but the weather is supposed to be even more wretched
tomorrow. So what are you waiting for! Come on down for the rest of the
weekend. Great workshops and presentations, plus mildly insane field trips.
Sharon was last seen photographing bluebirds in a cemetery well east of
town Lord knows where...
