Subject: [cobirds] Black-throated Blue Warbler - Kiowa - plus SE CO
Lindsay Purifoy and I did some birding in the Lamar area (and en route) the
last few days. Daytime temps varied from sunny near 70 to overcast and
50's and bird movement seemed to follow what was seen in the Denver area
these days with migration gaining a little more momentum. Good to run into
Brandon Percival and Duane Nelson after so many years!

Black-throated Blue Warbler - Kiowa - male seen on the north side of
Neeskah/Upper Queens Reservoir feeding low to mid-levels of bare looking
trees where the lake access corridor has been cut (as seen on google maps).
Best accessed from the dirt road between Rd C and Rd E (according to
google at least) and then walking east to the cut swath

Palm Warbler - one singing near the boat ramp of Neeskah Res/Upper Queens
(Rd C and Rd 47 Intersection) --- also Red-eyed Vireo

Northern Parula - one at Lamar Community College (north end) and one other
at the above BTBW grove area

Summer Tanager - part yellow part red kind - Lamar Community College grove
(north end)

White-throated Sparrow - Lamar Community College grove

Red Crossbills - a flock of at least 9 seen feeding high in some
cottonwoods on the northern limit of Lamar CC grove. They seemed to be
feeding on the Cottonwood catkins alongside the warblers.

Cheers and good luck to those heading down that way this weekend!
