Subject: [cobirds] Dickcissels A Plenty
Got a report this week that a couple of Dickcissels were seen on Rd CC and
Rd 22 south of Alamosa. There were less numbers than last year however.

Today I took a bike ride and encountered no less than 12 Dickcissels on
Swede Lane, which is 2 miles north of Monte Vista on Hwy 285 (Rio Grande
County). Swede Lane travels west and watch the hayfields on the north side
of the road as well as fence posts and power poles. easy to find at the
moment although hay cutting is commencing. In spite of the drought, pretty
good numbers of this species once again. Will check other locations to see
how they fare as well.

Wonder how smoke affects birds. On east winds , the Spring Fire has us
coughing and on westerly, the 416 Fire.
