> The Ani Was spotted about 100 to 200 yards upstream of Smith Road along Sand Creek. I was walking on the sand creek Greenway Trail when I saw it. The closest parking is along Xanthia Street at Smith Road along the RK mechanical property. It’s not a heavily trafficked area, especially on weekends. After parking walk over Sand Creek on Smith Road to a trail that connects to the paved pathway. I’ll send a screenshot of a map in a separate email. I Wouldn’t be able to post to CO birds Anytime soon so please do that if you would like.

It is unusual either because it is a species that does not normally occur in this region on this date, or the count you've reported is above expected levels of occurrence. To add these details to your observation click on the checklist link below.

If you identified the bird by voice, a description of this is often helpful. The best supporting evidence for any bird record is a photograph, which you can simply attach in an email response to me, or embed directly into your eBird checklist (click https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fhelp.ebird.org%2Fcustomer%2Fportal%2Farticles%2F973966-adding-photos-videos-and-recordings-to-checklists&amp;data=02%7C01%7C%7Cd61e84f49559474fb9d208d73479b077%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637035569558266912&amp;sdata=fekdVonvdMydnBeZGKxxVXqPBiRTcqVIHID8YE1OLEc%3D&amp;reserved=0 for details on that process). If you do embed a photo, please drop me a note to let me know that you did.

Without sufficient supporting details, the sighting will be left as unconfirmed and therefore not included in the output for scientific analysis, but your personal records and lists will be kept intact. If you do wish to edit the observation, you can do so from the checklist link above (just click 'edit species' on that page and change it as needed).
