Hallelujah! There is some water in the reservoir-in the channel and a small part on the north looks like a flooded field.
Not very birdy but best were : 6-7 Greater Yellowlegs, small flock of Yellow-headed Blackbirds, pair of Cinnamon Teals.
Many Red-winged Blackbirds and swallows,
2 Red-tails, American Goldfinch, one Cassin’s and 2 Eastern Kingbirds, Mallards.

From: John Rawinski <mvjohnski...>
Subject: [cobirds] Shorebirds at Blanca Wetlands
A recent visit there by wife Lisa and I found about a dozen species of
shorebirds present. Total numbers were quite low for this time of year.
Some of the highlights included Snowy and Semi-palmated Plovers, Bairds,
Western, Least and Semi-palmated sandpipers, Black-necked Stilt, and
Red-necked Phalaropes. Pond 114 is the hottest place to check. It is the
first alkali wetland on the right after you turn left toward North Mallard
at the "T".

On a trip to Pikes Stockade, Lisa found a family of Eastern Kingbirds as
well as a mother Wood Duck with young (at the only place they are
"confirmed" to breed in the San Luis Valley).

Hi!

I am considering going up to Prewitt Reservoir this weekend and just wanted to check to see if anyone knows what the shorebird habitat is looking like around the inlet. Seems like a lot of lakes are running high this year, so I didn’t want to drive up there if there’s no appreciable shoreline.

Any info is greatly appreciated!

Subject: [cobirds] shorebird habitat observations - Southeast Colorado
Two recent visits to SE Colorado (Otero, Bent, Kiowa, Crowley counties)
found shorebird habitat to be very limited. All of the reservoirs I looked
at were quite full (or dry in the case of Lower Queens). Of course, I did
not go everywhere. John Martin was less full but habitat conditions not so
interesting. No water around Van's Marsh. Last summer was much more
shorebird friendly down there.

The only places we found shorebirds were these:

1. A flooded fallow ag field along the north side of Hwy 194 northeast of
La Junta in Otero had good habitat on 8/5, with 12 species of shorebirds
and nearly 160 individuals, including a Mountain Plover.
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S58765555
But by 8/12 it had dried considerably and few shorebirds remained. Birding
this highway edge site requires caution.

2. At Ordway in Crowley the southeast corner of the Lake Meredith Feedlot
was flooded on 8/12, attracting a moderate number of shorebirds and lots of
activity. This is best viewed from near the south end of Lane 20. The
nearby "sewage pond" was full.

3. Just down the road, as viewed from the east end of CR G, the near shore
of Lake Meredith offered interesting shorebird and other waterbird habitat
on 8/12.

Several ponds and some flooded fields near Hwy 71 in Lincoln appeared to be
rain-filled but appeared bird free passing by at hwy speeds.

Joe,
I can respond with negative information: the pond that harbored the Josh Bruening's long-staying Common Gallinule near the Schware Unit of Wellington State Wildlife Area on the north side of Larimer CR60 w of CR3 was completely dry last Sunday (8/11). Morris Res, a little further to the west on the south side of CR60 has a shallow body of water that might be worth checking (it had Wilson's Phalaropes and avocets a month ago). I did not scrutinize this the other day as my mission that date was scouting an upcoming sparrow field trip.

Chuck Hundertmark recently posted a note* on COBirds about
promising plains playas that had good habitat and had attracted shorebirds.
Thanks, Chuck!
Notes like that from other "plains wanderers" (apologies to Pedionomus torquatus) are welcome on Cobirds
and will help wader watchers seek and find.

* August 10th There were two Black-bellied Plovers at the Morgan CR 23 & HH playas this afternoon. The birds were spotted on a field trip led by Bran Andres as part of Denver Field Ornithologists’ shorebird workshop.
Shorebird activity appeared to be picking up in the Weld, Logan and Morgan County playas and ponds, though water remains high in some ponds, limiting available shore, and some playas remain dry.
A small pool on Morgan CR23 south of CR II had a plethora of Solitary Sandpipers (10-20).

Subject: [cobirds] Shorebirds at S. Platte at McKay Rd (Adams County)
This morning there was a congregation of shorebirds on a mudflat in an almost empty reservoir between 96th and 104th Avenue on McKay Rd. Many Pelicans, Cormorants, Avocets, Snowy Egrets, and 2 Great Egrets. Smaller numbers of Lesser Yellowlegs, Spotted Sandpipers, Semipalmated Sandpipers, and Western Sandpipers. A Peregrine Falcon was sitting on the western shore watching the action. An adult Redtail with 2 juveniles was hiding in the grass on the north shore. To see this, park at Elaine Valente Park and walk east to the bike path, then south about 1/3 mile on the bike trail along the western shore of the Platte.

Subject: [cobirds] N Waterthrush, CSR, El Paso Co, Tues
Hey COBirders,

While numbers have been down so far this month banding at Clear Spring Ranch, fall migration is officially underway.
Today I banded the first Northern Waterthrush of the season (hatch year bird) and the first two Wilson’s Warblers (hy female, adult female). Not rare, but fun to finally see!

Also, Yellow Warblers continue, with 25 banded in the last week. They will be mostly gone by Labor Day.

FYI if it is clear tonight, it is prime to scan the face of the moon with a spotting scope and watch the migrant passerines cross the face. Too fun.

CObirders,
I saw the first Loggerhead shrike early yesterday afternoon that I’ve seen in Boulder County in a long time. It was hunting in a large prairie dog town on County Open Space just south of Hwy 7 and east of north 120th Ave. You can access the area by parking in a small parking lot off of Flagg Drive.

There was a surprising number of other species there including singing Blue grosbeaks, Lark sparrows, and multiple Western kingbirds and Say’s phoebes.

Sorry for the late posting!

Subject: [cobirds] Morgan County
For a solid chunk of today I birded Morgan County. My first time really
birding the county and it definitely didn’t disappoint.

At Riverside Park there were good numbers of the usual including Bobwhite
and RH Woodpeckers. Also a lone Willet and a couple of flyover Pine Siskin.

I then visited Brush SWA which has got to be one of my new favorite spots.
Again most of the usual, but this time 3 Yellow Billed Cuckoos decided to
make a late appearance, as well as a male Baltimore Oriole.

The various county roads north of Fort Morgan had lots of the typical
Sparrows: Grasshopper, Savannah, Lark sparrow and bunting, ect.
A few different species of shorebirds were commin through but none were
uncommon.
Also quite a few Burrowing Owls were scattered about.

Overall a really cool area that I will hopefully be visiting again soon.

There were two Black-bellied Plovers at the Morgan CR 23 & HH playas this afternoon. The birds were spotted on a field trip led by Bran Andres as part of Denver Field Ornithologists’ shorebird workshop.

Shorebird activity appeared to be picking up in the Weld, Logan and Morgan County playas and ponds, though water remains high in some ponds limiting available shore, and some playas remain dry.

A small pool on Morgan CR23 south of CR II had a plethora of Solitary Sandpipers (10-20).

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Re: Red Crossbills roaming around

Brandon et al,
During a quick stop right off I-70 at the public gazebo across from the school in Agate (northeastern Elbert) today to pin up insects collected near Eads earlier, I had Cassin's Kingbird and Black-headed Grosbeak. These species breed in Elbert County but I sort of had the feeling these individuals were wandering.

I have been in Lamar for the last 11 days but didn't do much birding because of the heat and potential for chiggers. Only species I would call a migrant that I saw down there was Rufous Hummingbird (1m, 1imm). Expected to at least see Olive-sided Fly, out of place pewees, maybe an empid or two, maybe Chipping Sparrow, but nothing. No Dickcissels, despite checking many hay fields north of town near Thurston Res. Orioles were milling about. Chimney Swifts and kites still over town. Yellow Warblers, cardinals and Warbling Vireo were trying feeble vocalizations at LCC (heard from the road, didn't go into the jungle). Did not check the lakes north of town as they are regularly inventoried these days.

Subject: [cobirds] Least Flycatcher, CSR, El Paso Co, Thurs
Hey COBirders,

Slow again for banding at Clear Spring Ranch this morning, but the unusual bird for the day was an adult Least Flycatcher.
Again, I've only caught 3 of this species in the fall at CSR (since 2012), and this was the earliest by a full two weeks.

But it is DEAD along the Fountain Creek corridor. I’m not even seeing any big birds fly overhead. No jays, crows, blackbirds, hawks, swallows, orioles, and few warblers or flycatchers
compared to other Augusts. This has been the unusual year.

Subject: [cobirds] Bewick's Wren, CSR, El Paso CO, Wed
Hi again COBirders,

Fall Banding at Clear Spring Ranch has started pretty slowly, with mostly local baby birds being caught so far, but there have a few migrants, especially some Yellow Warblers
carrying a good amount of fat, and today, a Hatch Year Bewick’s Wren. I know this is not a rare species for Colorado, but noteworthy for me - this is only the second I’ve banded
at CSR since 2012, and I only saw two in 10 years at Chico Basin banding, as well.

Today’s bird was of the expected Intermountain West ssp, mostly dull gray-brown with black in the tail, and a long curved bill, and larger compared to House Wrens.

I’ll report more as soon as I catch something interesting!

by Claire H. at the Chatfield State Park Audubon Center feeders. It
continues to appear off and on thru July 31, 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.

Subject: [cobirds] Nesting - American Dippers
Will Evans, who lives in Carbondale, sent me this request. Have any of you Cobirders followed Dipper nests this year?
Hugh Kingery

I have made no American Dipper sightings on the Crystal River in Carbondale. 
Heavy snow pack and big runoff here.  My question is whether American Dipper researchers report any indication of nest building location adjustment in anticipation of an unusually high runoff.  Last year, I watched a nest on a rock in the middle of Grizzly Creek (drains into the Colorado upstream from Glenwood Springs).  This year water was so high the trail was flooded and nest there would have washed away.

Subject: [cobirds] Mexican Ducks? (or hybrids?) South Platte Park, Arapahoe County
Hi all,
A Red Crossbill was definitely a highlight on a breeding bird count at
Northern Wildlife Area. In addition, I found three Mallard-type ducks that
I am fairly sure are Mexican Ducks, or, at least, Mallard/Mexican Duck
hybrids. I saw dark fledglings several weeks ago in the same area, which I
thought looked like possible Mexican Duck hybrids, so I think these three
are the same, a family group. The bird I think is the most likely candidate
for a pure Mexican Duck is a male. All three are undeniably dark for
Mallards (I understand the fact Mallards currently being in eclipse plumage
makes IDs such as this even more difficult). The male in question even has
a brown tail. However, two females have pale tails so are more likely
hybrids. I included some photos of the three birds. Any feedback is much
appreciated!

Male (possible pure) individual. Note Brown tail.

One of two female (likely hybrid) individuals. Note light

Subject: [cobirds] Science and hummingbird feeding


Can anyone help me? I am interested in finding scientific references on
avian disease promoted by humans feeding hummingbirds. In particular, I’d
like to see scientific opinions or, better yet, studies or evidence, on
cane sugar nectar as a vector for disease causing agents in hummingbirds
and best practice recommendations for cleaning polycarbonate plastic
feeders.


I *have* seen quite a mix of dire, authoritative and unscientific opinions
from internet experts who offer no supporting references. Facts would be
better than opinions.


The best I’ve found is good but doesn’t answer my questions:


Microbial communities in hummingbird feeders are distinct from floral
nectar and influenced by bird visitation. 2019. Author(s): Lee, CasieTell,

Hi Paula,

I had a similar experience yesterday (August 1) at about 6:20 p.m. in Longmont, Boulder County. A loose flock of Common Nighthawks (similarly, at least ten individuals) was swirling around over the intersection of 17th Ave and Hover St as I approached it on my way home from work. I quickly pulled over into the Safeway parking lot for a better look, but they were gone almost as soon as I had gotten out of the car, moving off toward the southwest. What a cool thing to see!

Subject: [cobirds] Chautauqua Indigo Bunting (Boulder)
The male is still singing this morning at the location Jane Baryames
reported two days ago. We saw it just past the last house on the left on
both sides of Bluebell Lane. It's territory includes some fairly distant
bushes and trees in the meadow on the west side. This species sings late
into the day and late into the summer.

Hi CObirders,
With all your great replies yesterday re the House Finch/BH Grosbeak with ‘Avian pox’, I thought I’d post this photo here to see if we can identify this warbler which appeared this morning in the company of a Virginia’s warbler. This is the only good photo I got of the bird and note that it had the two white undertail patches that most warblers have. Is this a Yellow-rumped? I looked through my Sibley and NG Guides and thought it might be a Blackpoll warbler. What is this bird? Any suggestions appreciated – Dave/nr Drake, Larimer Cty.

CObirders,
About 5 pm today as I was driving along Pine Street, I was thrilled to see at least 10 nighthawks flying low over the trees and houses! I pulled over to watch them gradually work their way across town as they flew in their jerky ways as a loose group.

A non-birder neighbor even called me later to tell me about seeing them (she grew up in Wyoming and remembers seeing flocks of them all summer).

Subject: [cobirds] Rabbit Ears Pass and North Park Birding


This weekend I went camping on Rabbit Ears Pass and for once I did not get
rained out (which has been a problem this year). I had a great time
spending time outdoors and watching and find birds along Rabbit Ears Pass
and North Park.

I camped at a fantastic National Forest Service Campground called
Meadows (first come first served, no reservations, just know there is no
water). This is just before the West Summit if you are coming from
Walden/Kremmling or just after the summit if you are coming from Steamboat
Springs and on the Routt County side of the pass. It had a wonderful little
trail, located next to sit #14. There was plenty of dead trees and there
was one Three-toed Woodpecker here, though I never saw the bird I
definitely heard it and only during the mornings. It must be in another
part of the forest in the afternoon. There was also both a Swanson’s Thrush
and Hermit Thrush singing, giving me a great opportunity to learn the
difference between the songs, something I had not been good at before.
There was also a few Red Crossbills flying from tree to tree. The trails
along the pass were not very good however, they did not have good
maintenance so about a quarter of a mile I found the trail to have
disappeared. However, Dumont Lake had a great trail. At night I woke up and
briefly heard a Northern Saw-Wet Owl calling, and a pack of Coyotes signing
also woke me up. Another cool non-bird, Moose could be seen in the meadow,
thankfully a long way from my tent. This campground proved to be very birdy
and many of the birds I saw along the pass was there.

One the way home I went through North Park and stopped at Arapahoe
Wildlife Refuge, honestly one of the best birding spots in Colorado, and
the Auto Loop is top notch. Eared Grebes breed here, as do Wilson’s
Phalaropes, Ring-necked Ducks, Lesser Scaups, Willets, Avocets, and much
more. Driving through I found the expected birds, a Willet perched on a
sage calling was a neat site. Three was also a Golden Eagle getting nailed
by some Red-wing Blackbirds. The nearby Walden Reservoir also was a good
stop, where Black Terns, Franklin and California Gulls and American White
Pelicans breed. I had however forgot my scope so I could not enjoy this
part as much.

I also made a stop at the Moose Visitor Center, Stat Forest, Stat
Park and watched their wonderful feeders. The flowers were also amazing.

One the way back I made a side trip to see if I could find that
Painted Bunting at Chatfield Audubon Center, I spent about an hour and a
half, got a picture of a catbird and nearly got a heat stroke and never saw
that bunging. (Finally caught up to this day).


In total I saw/heard 96 birds, primarily at North Park and my campground.


Great Birding,

Brian Johnson

Englewood CO

Thank you all for your comments. I didn’t realise this was a sick bird. We have Black-headed grosbeaks here and House finches. I only have the one feeder and shall scrub it out immediately! The bird seems to be doing alright, she has water, food and shelter within feet of the feeder. I think there is nothing I can do for her. - Dave

Is there anything he can do to help this bird? I thought there was something you could use on chickens that may help?

Dave and others,



Looks like a house finch with a case of pox. You may want to clean your feeder lest other birds catch it.

Hello CObirders,

This bird has been hanging around for a week now on my feeder. I’ve got lots of bad photos (shot through a window) and have studied the bird closely. But I still cannot identify it. Can anyone tell me what this bird is (I think it is a youngster). Thanks – Dave Hyde/nr Drake, Larimer Cty.

Subject: [cobirds] Painted Bunting chow
Sorry Dave,

Here is a photo I took of the Painted Bunting on the bench. Looks like a
good mix of seed. Is that millet in it’s beak? I have other shots of him on
the ground with the same food in his mouth. This looks like the same mix
the Audubon was putting on the feeders.

This new location west of the south building is much better viewing of the
bird. Wonder how many birders have seen? Quite the Technicolor star as Mark
Obmascik has said.

Is millet available in the wild for this bird?

Subject: [cobirds] Painted bunting -- yes (Jeffco)
After circling the Audubon Nature Center for 90 minutes, I saw the painted bunting at 4:30 pm and learned two lessons:
1. The bird showed up only after I threatened aloud to leave in five minutes. Pretty sure I could have saved a lot of time if I'd issued my threat earlier. What a glorious bird.
2. South suburban rush hour traffic is not glorious.
Good birding,

Subject: [cobirds] Three toed woodpecker, Boulder (?) county

I saw a three toed woodpecker at Pawnee campground at Brainard lake last evening at about 8pm. He was at campsite 31. Post late because I didn’t have WiFi until now.
I was disappointed that I didn’t see any Canada jays or Clark’s nutcrackers. I did hear hermit thrushes, saw crossbills and there were plenty of white crowned sparrows, dark eyed juncos, and mountain chickadees on my hike to lake Isabel.
A young moose ran across the road going to Brainard and 3 bull moose were in the willows south of Brainard.

The Audubon Nature Center painted bunting was present on and under the
benches west of the southernmost building from about 1:14 to 1:30 p.m.
Before the bird came, I checked out what seed was left, and it was all
shelled sunflower and milo, no white millet. With my bins, I could see him
eating the sunflower but didn't get a photo.

Subject: [cobirds] Re: if you are still at all curious about my Boulder phoebe saga...
Linda,
I too had the experience this year of late-arriving Say's Phoebes in a
Boulder County spot where I regularly see them.
They are a usual species seen at my Burrowing Owl monitoring site for
Boulder County Parks & Open Space (BCPOS), a prairie dog colony and former
pasture in SE Boulder County. One year I watched a parent bringing a
steady supply of food to a gang of fledged youngsters arranged on a rocky
outcrop - which I now think of as the 'picnic table' outcrop.

This year I did not see a Say's Phoebe until my last visit of the summer
study, July 25. I think they must nest in an unused shed structure on the
property next door, but that's not on County property so I can't get over
there to inspect more closely.

Aside: there have been no Burrowing Owls at this site in my several years
of monitoring, just the hope they might show up. Data from BCPOS'
monitoring work the last couple of years suggest a promising uptick in BUOW
breeding success in Boulder County, but I haven't heard how things stand
for this year. Meanwhile, I faithfully document zeroes in the name of
science and enjoy the other species I see on the prairie.

CObirders,
Seven chipping Red crossbills just flew over my house (I heard them first while sitting in my living room). They briefly landed in a neighbor’s ponderosa before flying south towards Coal Creek.

I have been hearing them for several weeks, but this is the first time I’ve seen the flock! I’m not sure which type they are; their song and chips didn’t sound quite right for type 5.

Please report observations and updates to COBirds. Thanks.


CAPITAL LETTERS denote very rare species, as listed by the Colorado Bird Records Committee (“at the CFO website.

(*) indicates new information on this species.

For more information on birds seen today, go to cobirds.org<http://cobirds.org/> and scroll to the bottom for “Recent eBird Sightings”.



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



White-winged Dove (*Ouray)

Great Egret (Jackson)

Bell's Vireo (Prowers)

Black-throated Sparrow (*Otero)

Hepatic Tanager (*Otero)

PAINTED BUNTING (*Jeffco, Otero)


[Set of northern US prairie species (Larimer)]



[Southbound migrating warblers which breed outside CO are beginning to show up already, particularly in the northwest corner of the state (Nashville, Townsend's).]


JACKSON COUNTY:

---On July 24 Brad Steger reported a Great Egret at 18 Island Reservoir off US34 about midway between Walden and Muddy Pass/Rabbit Ears Pass.


JEFFERSON COUNTY:

---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 28, 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.


LARIMER:

---Of late, Andy Bankert and Matthew Webb of the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies report Sprague's Pipit (singing, confirmed), Eastern Meadowlark and multiple Baird's Sparrows from the non-public areas within Meadow Springs Ranch north of Fort Collins. At Soapstone Prairie Natural Area northwest of Hamilton Reservoir multiple Baird's Sparrows have been present for months, with some of them breeding. The great majority of the Soapstone Baird's Sparrows are in areas off-limits to the public but lengthy hikes from the main parking lot into public areas to the east may produce this species. The non-public area birds at both Soapstone and Meadow Springs Ranch cannot be pursued by birders because of their locations but Andy wishes to let birders know of them because of the possibility other individuals might be detected nearby (for example, prairie areas east and west of I-25 from Wellington north to the WY line).


OTERO COUNTY:

---On July 23 a male Painted Bunting and adult Black-throated Sparrow were reported as "continuing" along Higbee Valley Road (Otero Road 804) by Kevin Keirn. No details on the locations of these birds were provided but presumably these were along the Higbee Valley Road from the cemetery continuing southwest to the end of the road a couple miles hence. Also seen along this road, famous for its Zone-tailed Hawk(s) last summer, were Summer Tanager, Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Mississippi Kites and Ash-throated Flycatcher. The turnoff from SR109 onto Higbee Valley Road is about 12 miles south of LaJunta.

---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 Swift.


OURAY COUNTY:

---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 Disher.



PROWERS COUNTY:

---On July 23 a Bell's Vireo was reported as "continuing" at Granada SWA by Tony Leukering. This sighting, about 4 miles east of the town of Granada, was ne of the curve in 28 Road where it changes from e-w to n-s.

Mark,
The filler that is used in grocery store birdseed mixes that birds reject is milo not red millet.

Dave,
The birds preference is the white millet provided in the various seed mixes available. By my study yesterday no natural food source is attracting the bird.

Dave and others,



On the feeders, it enjoyed sunflower chips and, to a lesser extent, red millet. (Back when I was feeding birds, white millet was preferred over red. If you buy bird seed at the grocery store, prepare to see a lot of red millet tossed on the ground.) When it was in the weedy stuff south of the feeders, it was getting some sort of seeds, but I can’t say for sure what seeds it was actually finding.

Subject: [cobirds] Re: Painted Bunting food
During my 7/25 sighting the PABU spent most of it's time south of the
feeder area in shady deciduous trees and numerous chokecherry (I think)
bushes. When it flew to the feeder area it went directly into the same type
of bush and fed there before scrounging for seed. The bird seemed to be
feeding on small bugs in those bushes vs. berries.

Subject: [cobirds] Painted Bunting food
Could just one of the dozens (hundreds?) of people who have seen the Audubon Nature Center painted bunting comment on what kind of seed it is getting? What is in the feeders? What was spread on the bench mentioned in Greg Goodrich's recent post? Thank you.

Subject: [cobirds] Great Egret, Osprey, Eastern Kingbird Adams County - Platte River Trail north of 88th Ave
At 8:30 a.m. today, I saw a great egret on the Platte River trail about 1/2
mile north of 88th Ave. It was in the Platte River on the east side of the
new trail that circles a small lake with a new fishing platform. An osprey
also flew over. About 1/2 mile farther north, an eastern kingbird crossed
the path in front of me. This was all in Adams County.

The Painted Bunting came out for about
4-5 minutes at 6:25 pm and landed on the dead tree in front of the west feeder. He then flew to the tray with seeds closest to the building. He eventually was flustered by the House Finches and flew to the south. What a beauty!

PAINTED BUNTING (*Jeffco, Otero)


[Set of northern US prairie species (Larimer)]



[Southbound migrating warblers which breed outside CO are beginning to show up already, particularly in the northwest corner of the state (Nashville, Townsend's).]


JACKSON COUNTY:

---On July 24 Brad Steger reported a Great Egret at 18 Island Reservoir off US34 about midway between Walden and Muddy Pass/Rabbit Ears Pass.


JEFFERSON COUNTY:

---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 27. 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 27 in the morning it was found in the area west of the southernmost of the two buildings. Thank you for updates posted to COBIRDS.


LARIMER:

---Of late, Andy Bankert and Matthew Webb of the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies report Sprague's Pipit (singing, confirmed), Eastern Meadowlark and multiple Baird's Sparrows from the non-public areas within Meadow Springs Ranch north of Fort Collins. Multiple Baird's Sparrows have been detected of late in the non-public areas of Soapstone Natural Area, also north of Fort Collins. These birds cannot be pursued by birders because of their locations but Andy wishes to let birders know of them because of the possibility other individuals might be detected nearby (for example, prairie areas east and west of I-25 from Wellington north to the WY line).





OTERO COUNTY:

__On July 21 a Least Tern was reported at Cheraw Lake by Kevin Williams

__On July 23 a male Painted Bunting and adult Black-throated Sparrow were reported as "continuing" along Higbee Valley Road (Otero Road 804) by Kevin Keirn. No details on the location but presumably these were west of the cemetery which is just west of SR109 about 12 miles south of LaJunta. Also seen along this road, famous for its Zone-tailed Hawk(s) last summer, were Summer Tanager, Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Mississippi Kites and Ash-throated Flycatcher.



PROWERS COUNTY:

---On July 23 a Bell's Vireo was reported as "continuing" at Granada SWA by Tony Leukering. This sighting, about 4 miles east of the town of Granada, was ne of the curve in 28 Road where it changes from e-w to n-s.

JACKSON COUNTY:

—-On July 20 a (m) Costa’s Hummingbird was reported near the west end of Jackson CR 22 by Steve Mlodinow. It was perched on a thin wire on right side of road (as one is headed northwest) about 15 feet above scraggly line of willows. The first first house on the right side, occupied by somewhat hostile humans, has a hummingbird feeder. The second house (100-200 yards past) had very friendly occupants who rehab injured birds. Costa’s was between two houses, unfortunately, nearer first house and flew in that direction.

---On July 24 Brad Steger reported a Great Egret at 18 Island Reservoir off US34 about midway between Walden and Muddy Pass/Rabbit Ears Pass.


JEFFERSON COUNTY:

---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 26. 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. As interest in this accessible individual is high, please provide COBIRDS with updates (yesterday over 25 reports to eBird, only one to COBIRDS (thank you, Eric)).


LARIMER:

---Of late, Andy Bankert and Matthew Webb of BCR report Sprague's Pipit (singing, confirmed), Eastern Meadowlark and multiple Baird's Sparrows from the non-public areas within Soapstone Natural Area/Meadow Springs Ranch north of Fort Collins.

MESA COUNTY:

—On July 20 (2) LUCY’S WARBLERS were reported at Gateway Cottonwoods. Two birds have been seen several times at this location, although there is no confirmed breeding. First reported on July 16 by Nic Norte with credit to Mark and Denise Vollmar and Eileen Cunningham who discovered them during their Bluebird Box Survey.



OTERO COUNTY:

—On July 21 a Least Tern was reported at Cheraw Lake by Kevin Williams.

---On July 23 a male Painted Bunting and adult Black-throated Sparrow were reported as "continuing" along Higbee Valley Road by Kevin Keirn. Both were photographed. No details provided as to where along the road these birds were seen but in the past these birds have been at least a mile west of Highway 109. Higbee Valley Road (shown but unnumbered in some DeLorme Atlases, in some listed as Otero CR804) goes sw off SR109 about 12 miles south of LaJunta. Also seen along this road were Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Summer Tanager, Ash-throated Flycatcher and Mississippi Kite.

Subject: [cobirds] Painted Bunting, Jefferson Co.

Hello all,

The Painted Bunting was seen by many this morning from about 7:20 to 7:35 AM. It was seen in the area west of the southernmost of the two buildings at the Audubon Center at Chatfield. At times it was in the shrubs and low trees and not visible much of the time. But at times it comes to feed on the ground next to the bench and the buffalo berry sign on the west side of the building, and then it can be seen very well at close range. About a dozen people had great looks early this morning, and there were more people waiting and watching when I left.

Please report observations and updates to COBirds. Thanks.


CAPITAL LETTERS denote very rare species, as listed by the Colorado Bird Records Committee (“at the CFO website.

(*) indicates new information on this species.

For more information on birds seen today, go to cobirds.org<http://cobirds.org/> and scroll to the bottom for “Recent eBird Sightings”.



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



COSTA’S HUMMINGBIRD (Jackson)

Least Tern (Otero)

Great Egret (Jackson)

Bell's Vireo (Prowers)

LUCY’S WARBLER (Mesa)

Black-throated Sparrow (Otero)

PAINTED BUNTING (*Jeffco, Otero)


[Set of northern US prairie species (Larimer)]



[Southbound migrating warblers which breed outside CO are beginning to show up already, particularly in the northwest corner of the state (Nashville, Townsend's).]


JACKSON COUNTY:

—-On July 20 a (m) Costa’s Hummingbird was reported near the west end of Jackson CR 22 by Steve Mlodinow. It was perched on a thin wire on right side of road (as one is headed northwest) about 15 feet above scraggly line of willows. The first first house on the right side, occupied by somewhat hostile humans, has a hummingbird feeder. The second house (100-200 yards past) had very friendly occupants who rehab injured birds. Costa’s was between two houses, unfortunately, nearer first house and flew in that direction.

---On July 24 Brad Steger reported a Great Egret at 18 Island Reservoir off US34 about midway between Walden and Muddy Pass/Rabbit Ears Pass.


JEFFERSON COUNTY:

---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 25. 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. As interest in this accessible individual is high, please provide COBIRDS with updates (including its food preference at the feeder).


LARIMER:

---Of late, Andy Bankert and Matthew Webb of BCR report Sprague's Pipit (singing, confirmed), Eastern Meadowlark and multiple Baird's Sparrows from the non-public areas within Soapstone Natural Area/Meadow Springs Ranch north of Fort Collins. These birds cannot be pursued by birders because of their locations but Andy wishes to let birders know of them because of the possibility other individuals might be spotted on the plains (for example, prairie areas east and west of I-25 from Wellington north to the WY line.


MESA COUNTY:

—On July 20 (2) LUCY’S WARBLERS were reported at Gateway Cottonwoods. Two birds have been seen several times at this location, although there is no confirmed breeding. First reported on July 16 by Nic Norte with credit to Mark and Denise Vollmar and Eileen Cunningham who discovered them during their Bluebird Box Survey.



OTERO COUNTY:

—On July 21 a Least Tern was reported at Cheraw Lake by Kevin Williams.

---On July 23 a male Painted Bunting and adult Black-throated Sparrow were reported as "continuing" along Higbee Valley Road by Kevin Keirn. Both were photographed. No details provided as to where along the road these birds were seen but in the past these birds have been at least a mile west of Highway 109. Higbee Valley Road (shown but unnumbered in some DeLorme Atlases, in some listed as Otero CR804) goes sw off SR109 about 12 miles south of LaJunta. Also seen along this road were Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Summer Tanager, Ash-throated Flycatcher and Mississippi Kite.


PROWERS COUNTY:

---On July 23 a Bell's Vireo was reported as "continuing" at Granada SWA by Tony Leukering. This sighting, about 4 miles east of the town of Granada, was ne of the curve in 28 Road where it changes from e-w to n-s.

Subject: [cobirds] Sprague's Pipit -- Private Ranch in Weld County

It seems like every summer Colorado gets a report of Sprague's Pipit, but as far as I can tell (eBird, CBRC, Colorado Birds) before today there hasn't been any documented summer records of this species which typically nests in the northern Great Plains and looks really similar to juvenile Horned Larks which are really easy to find right now. Luckily for us, we didn't have to worry about identification issues this morning as a Sprague's Pipit was singing pretty actively at a Weld County ranch that Bird Conservancy of the Rockies is monitoring for Baird's Sparrows and other grassland birds. In addition to the pipit, we found a continuing Eastern Meadowlark, baby Wilson's Phalaropes, Sora and Virginia Rails, and 9 Baird's Sparrows. I think my coworker, Matt Webb, may have audio of the Sprague's Pipit, Eastern Meadowlark, and a Baird's Sparrow or two singing at the same spot. I wonder if we will continue to see northern breeders attempting to set up territories here in Colorado like the Baird's Sparrows have done for the past 5 years. We did try playback for LeConte's Sparrow at multiple spots without hearing any. Hopefully these rarities will encourage others to keep an ear out while birding the grasslands in northeastern Colorado, especially on the Pawnee Grasslands.

We will upload media to this eBird list in case anyone wanted to see documentation: www.ebird.org/view/checklist/S58397225<https://apc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebird.org%2Fview%2Fchecklist%2FS58397225&data=02%7C01%7C%7Cf298b78e7fa941a2e6bc08d70fa50d28%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636995073874222248&sdata=%2BSy3gsel1zOPKzxrS0pDY9z46cMtU4jHd6LlreoMC5Y%3D&reserved=0>

Subject: [cobirds] if you are still at all curious about my Boulder phoebe saga...
Hello, all:

We returned from a scorching stay with friends & family in France only to discover that Colorado is finally (it was cold when we left) almost as hot. And when I last wrote about my house-nesting Say's Phoebe pair--maybe two months ago?--the male had returned promptly as always in mid-March, and waited for two months for his love to reappear, suffering two rejections from other women as time went by.

When I left the state, I was mourning for him, and for our long (9 years) acquaintance. He was hanging around, but appeared disconsolate.

Well, what a difference a month makes.

The first thing I noticed when I got home was that the phoebe's activity in the yard had picked up again. And a week later, he appeared with a wife and four kids. I rejoiced for him, but he raised the brood somewhere else, and my next thought was, Where did that happen?

When I paid a call to my next door neighbor this week, Mr. B called my attention to a "little flycatcher" that had nested under his porch awning, and lo and behold, it was Phil the Phoebe.

All's well that ends well, and I know some of you share my interest in these sweet birds, so now you have the happy ending for this year...

Linda

Subject: [cobirds] Sprague's Pipit -- Private Ranch in Weld County
It seems like every summer Colorado gets a report of Sprague's Pipit, but
as far as I can tell (eBird, CBRC, Colorado Birds) before today there
hasn't been any documented summer records of this species which typically
nests in the northern Great Plains and looks really similar to juvenile
Horned Larks which are really easy to find right now. Luckily for us, we
didn't have to worry about identification issues this morning as a
Sprague's Pipit was singing pretty actively at a Weld County ranch that
Bird Conservancy of the Rockies is monitoring for Baird's Sparrows and
other grassland birds. In addition to the pipit, we found a continuing
Eastern Meadowlark, baby Wilson's Phalaropes, Sora and Virginia Rails, and
9 Baird's Sparrows. I think my coworker, Matt Webb, may have audio of the
Sprague's Pipit, Eastern Meadowlark, and a Baird's Sparrow or two singing
at the same spot. I wonder if we will continue to see northern breeders
attempting to set up territories here in Colorado like the Baird's Sparrows
have done for the past 5 years. We did try playback for LeConte's Sparrow
at multiple spots without hearing any. Hopefully these rarities will
encourage others to keep an ear out while birding the grasslands in
northeastern Colorado, especially on the Pawnee Grasslands.

We will upload media to this eBird list in case anyone wanted to see
documentation: www.ebird.org/view/checklist/S58397225

Good Birding,

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Hummers, Boulder County
Hello,

I enjoyed reading Leon’s report of the hummingbird activity in his area. So I thought I’d report on the activity at my feeders.
I live at about 8700’, west of Boulder, in Boulder County.

By early July, I had counted 21 broad-tailed hummingbirds at my 2 feeders. Then, beginning on July 3rd, the population dropped to 3 at one time. I was mystified as to where they all had gone. This continued for a week, and I even through out nectar to refresh it.
But, on July 12th, they all seemed to return in mass, along with several rufous hummingbirds.
I now have approximately 35 broad-tailed hummingbirds and at least 4 rufous. I have yet to see a calliope, but have only had one once here last summer, so that doesn’t seem unusual.
I’m refilling my 2 feeders twice a day.

As far the mysterious disappearance, I speculate that the females went off to nest, and the males to declare their territories. But I’d be interested to hear other theories.
(The native wildflowers also became very abundant with all the rain, but they are still there. )

COBirders-- After several days observing the feeders at our cabin (9200 ft., Sangre de Cristo range) my impression is: Broad-tailed numbers are somewhat below normal, with fewer juvies; Rufous population about normal, behavior also; Calliope numbers about 25% to 30% above normal. Of course, the latter make us happy! We have fed almost 40 pounds of sugar so far this season.

Hey guys,

I got tasked with leading a beginner birding seminar for the Colorado
Mountain Club's Colorado Mountain Fest on September 28th. I'm not much of a
photographer, but I'd like to include some pics of some of the more
exciting birds that we've had in the Front Range in the last couple of
years (Fork-Tailed Flycatcher, Parasitic Jaeger, Gyrfalcon, etc). I was
wondering if any of you had pics that you'd be willing to share with me.
I'm happy to include a photo credit. I'd just like to have some visuals to
go with my presentation. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Good birding,
Mike Hensley

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Piping Plover New Jersey Beaches
Thanks for sharing and I'm very happy that the NPS was allowed to do their job which isn't happening very much these days. Right now if allowed, I would love to see more good things happening to help protect and save species even outside of Colorado. Things are going downhill rapidly in many areas and I think this will help us all here in Colorado. Of course I don't make the rules.

Yeah for the endangered Piping Plover! I know this has little to do with Colorado, but we do have these little gems here so... I thought this was an amazing little story in case you missed it!

Subject: [cobirds] Top honors for two Colorado ornithologists
Hey, all. Two Colorado ornithologists well known to us at CFO were recently
named Fellows in the American Ornithological Society (AOS). They are *Lauryn
Benedict* and *Garth Spellman,* both of whom have been active in various
ways in CFO, especially in connection with recent conventions.

Being recognized as a Fellow in the AOS is pretty much the pinnacle of
professional attainment in ornithology in the Western Hemisphere.

(*) indicates new information on this species.
For more information on birds seen today, go to cobirds.org and scroll to the bottom for “Recent eBird Sightings”.

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

COSTA’S HUMMINGBIRD (*Jackson)
Eastern Phoebe (*Jackson)
Cassin’s Kingbird (Gilpin)
BAIRD’S SPARROW (Larimer)

It was perched on a thin wire on right side of road (as one is headed nw.) about 15 feet above scraggly line of willows. The first first house on right side of 22 has a hummingbird feeder but somewhat hostile occupants. The second house (100-200 yards past) had very friendly occupants who rehab injured birds.
