Yesterday afternoon about 4 pm I saw the continuing *Yellow-billed Loon *and *White-winged Scoter* at South Platte Park Reservoir. At the time the reservoir was mostly open water in Arapahoe and thinly frozen over in the JeffCo embayment. Early this morning as I drove by on C470 it looked like the great majority of the Arapahoe portion was also then frozen over, if not all of it. It would be interesting to see if those lingering rare birds are still there today, or if they had to move elsewhere (if they could).
An adult *Harris's Sparrow* continues to visit my yard in Ken Caryl Valley through this morning 2/21. A *Gray Jay* and *Am. Three-toed Woodpecker* were at Staunton SP on 2/19.
