ADAMS COUNTY:

—-On June 22 a Bewick’s Wren was reported from private property in
Brighton. I am seeking permission from the homeowner for birders to visit
IF it is seen again, as this would be only the 2nd Adams County record.

—-On June 23 a (m) Baltimore Oriole was reported at Metzger Farm Open
Space; first reported by Lauren Burke on June 17. It was paired with a
female Bullock’s Oriole. Please view from a distance.


BOULDER COUNTY:

—-On June 21 a singing Field Sparrow was reported from Old Saint Vrain Rd
by Sue Riffe. This is the first Boulder County eBird record for any summer
month.

—-On June 22 a singing male Chestnut-sided Warbler was reported from
Bluebell Canyon, 100-200 meters up McClintock Trail from the stone bridge.
First reported on June 11 by Peter Gent.


JACKSON COUNTY:

—-On June 20 a Caspian Tern was reported at Walden Reservoir by David
Suddjian.


JEFFERSON COUNTY:

—-On June 19 a Black Phoebe was reported at Chatfield SP (Audubon Center
and Trails). First reported on June 18 by Claire H.


LA PLATA COUNTY:

—-On June 22 an immature male RIVOLI’S HUMMINGBIRD was photographed by a
homeowner near Durango, as reported to the RBA by Kyle Medina. It was not
seen on June 23. Susan Allerton knows the homeowner, who will probably
grant permission to visit IF if this magnificent hummingbird is seen again.
Updates will be posted on Cobirds.

—-On June 22 a Dickcissel was reported at Pastorius Reservoir by Susan
Allerton. It was seen again in mid-afternoon, then seemed to disappear. It
is the

first eBird record for the county. Years ago a Dickcissel was photographed
nearby.


LARIMER:

---On June 22 an adult Scissor-tailed Flycatcher was reported at Twin
Bridge Lake by Caleb Alons. Twin Bridge Lake is reached by heading east on
E Harmony Dr from I-25, then south on Latham Pkwy to Twin Bridge Drive.


MONTROSE COUNTY:

—-On June 17 a Least Flycatcher was reported at the Ute Indian Museum in
the town of Montrose by Laura Steadman. First county record.


PUEBLO COUNTY:

—-On June 19 a Grace’s Warbler graced a small pond near the entrance to
Pueblo Mountain Park, as reported by Evan Carlson. This has become an
annual occurrence and is a site close to Front Range birders.
