My issue of Colorado Birds (vol 53, no 4, Fall 2019), the quarterly publication of the Colorado Field Ornithologists (CFO), arrived this week thanks to the hard work of editor Christy Payne and her team. Seven articles are featured: 1. The CFO Presidents Message informs readers of some developments at CFO, including the upcoming Colorado Birding Challenge on May 23, 2020. 2. Peter Gent and Mark Peterson publish the 75th Colorado Bird Records Committee Report, including acceptance of 58 rare bird records from 2015-2016, plus 4 new species added to the State Checklist, bringing the total to 511 now. 3. Dave Leatherman’s column The Hungry Bird explores an encounter between a Raven and a Milky Way Chocolate bar. 4. Dean Shoup dazzles readers with News from the Field for Fall 2018, in which 73 species of birds deserved mention and 23 species are represented by photos from observers throughout Colorado. 5. Gloria Nikolai writes a short article about a magnificent bird art donation to CFO and the donor, retired naturalist John Moore. 6. Scott Rashid provides a scholarly article on “The First Boreal Owl documented in Rocky Mountain National Park.” And 7. Tony Leukering contributes another expert identification article analyzing the pitfalls of Spotted Sandpiper and Solitary Sandpiper ID for his column “In The Scope.”
