I spent all morning at Prospect Ponds NA in Fort Collins. No sign of the Rusty Blackbird, Fox Sparrow, or Harris’s Sparrow seen just yesterday. As far as I know, several other birders dipped on these too. I did relocate the Winter Wren reported by Dave Leatherman and others. It was seen all too briefly hiding under stumps and tree roots along the bank of the creek just where Dave reported. This is the creek that flows south along the east side of the natural area, then turns to the east and parallels the bike path. Cross the bike path bridge, then take the social trail to the north of the bike path through the grove of mature trees. I saw it on the opposite bank from the trail.
