Rare, out-of-place and out-of-season species include:

PAINTED BUNTING (*Jefferson, Otero)


---On the morning of July 23 a cooperative male Painted Bunting was found
by Claire H. at the Chatfield State Park Audubon Center feeders. It
continues to appear off and on thru July 30, making it perhaps the
most-viewed individual of its species ever in Colorado. If the feeders are
down in early morning or in the evening, be sure to check for the bird in
trees, shrubs and on the ground in vicinity of feeder poles. On July 28 one
specific area where it occurred was the area west of the southernmost of
the two buildings, including the bench where mixed seed that included
millet, apparently its favorite, had been placed. Thank you for updates
posted to COBIRDS, including those about its feeding habits.


---On Juy 27 a male Painted Bunting was reported by Steve Mlodinow at
Higbee Valley Road (Otereo CR 804)

---On the morning of July 27 a yellow (f or imm) Hepatic Tanager was
photographed in a cone-laden juniper in Picketwire Canyon (37°39'18.5"N
103°34'04.2"W) south of LaJunta by Steve Mlodinow. Also seen or heard in
this area were Black-throated Sparrow, Summer Tanager and White-throated


---On July 27 an adult White-winged Dove was reported from Dennis Weaver
Park (yes, THAT Dennis Weaver) in the town of Ouray by David and Susan
