This morning, while walking to my office at DU (Denver), I encountered a Rock Wren in a new and neat little depressed rock garden in a parking lot. This was my first of this bird on campus and, frankly, the most interesting, non-flyover that I've had on the rather non-birdy "hotspot."
Back home in Centennial (Arapahoe), five Pine Siskin spent much of the afternoon at my feeder, bird bath, and trees. This is my first local sighting of siskins since May 2016 -- and all of those sightings were rather brief. The birds were quite vocal, adding some interesting noises to the goldfinch and House Wren calls.
