Peter Burke found a phalarope yesterday at Lagerman Reservoir (west of Longmont) that was tentatively identified this morning as a Red Phalarope. The bird was still present when I left around 11:00 a.m. The viewing location at Lagerman is from the north side near the parking lot and the bird (and most other species present) was in the west end of the reservoir. Shore access to the west end is restricted until September 1; until you need to scope from the area around the parking lot. I've attached a photo digiscoped through a 30X scope.
