This is a great observation David!

To keep an eye on the possible "fallout" locations, check out the surface
observations here:

In this image, you will see real meteorological observations from many
towns across Colorado and into the surrounding states. The stick coming
out of the dot is the important part for today. That indicates the
direction the winds are coming from. For more information about this, you
can go here: http://ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu/(Gh)/guides/maps/sfcobs/wnd.rxml

On that map linked above, look for areas in Eastern Colorado (away from the
mountains) where the wind barbs are collectively pointing toward each
other, that is where you may want to go birding. If you watch this map
throughout the day, that location will change and may go away. If it stays
in place for many hours at a time, this would be a great place to go
looking.

As of right now, the convergence of the wind barbs is pointing to a line
from about Chatfield Reservoir through Last Chance (and maybe farther
east).

Get out and do some searching. There are probably plenty of birds out
there to find in all locations, but if you wanted the biggest bang for your
buck, going to this convergence line would likely be best.
