Subject: [cobirds] Return of the Great Boulder Caper, Black Friday, Nov. 23
Greetings, everybody.

Please join Colorado Field Ornithologists for the more-or-less annual Great
Boulder Caper, Friday, Nov. 23, commencing at 7:30 a.m. in the Cottonwood
Marsh parking area of Walden Ponds, off 75th Street. We'll caper around the
Walden/Sawhill complex for a couple hours, then head north to Longmont &
environs, assiduously avoiding eye contact with Weld & Larimer counties.
This is a daylong caper, but, after the manner of Huckleberry Finn, you may
come and go at your own free will. Bring leftovers; bring good cheer; bring
binoculars if you want to. All are welcome--children & youth, novices &
newcomers, and general curiosity-seekers especially so. As always, we
expect a strong showing from the Colorado Springs mafia.

Leaders are Luke Pheneger, Carl Bendorf, and Yours Truly. If Luke gets a
Boulder County year bird, drinks are on Tracy; blueberry ginger kombucha,
if I'm not mistaken. No need to RSVP, just show up. We're looking forward
to capering with you on Black Friday!

Ted Floyd
Lafayette, Boulder County

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Blackburnian re-found
Joe & Birders,

I last saw the Blackburnian on Airport Rd on the east side of the street just north of what on the map is named “Dry Creek”. There is a bike/walking underpass that goes under Airport Rd by the creek. There were numerous groups of pines along this stretch north all the way back to Staghorn where it flew to. I last saw it in a cluster of pines that was right north of the bike/walking path as the path headed east.

The Blackburnian was mainly heading south in its flights, but did double back a couple times north along the road.

Hope that helps-

From: DAVID A LEATHERMAN <daleatherman...>
Subject: [cobirds] Comments on Blackburnian Warbler situation in Longmont
As posted earlier, in Longmont this morning I was able to see the Blackburnian Warbler found recently by Scott Severs and updated by David Dowell. It was where David described and where Joe's new eBird pin shows. I did NOT see a Palm at the site, but did see two Yellow-rumped Warblers. Given how the birds were moving around and how many similar trees exist in that subdivision south of Nelson e of Airport Road, no reason to doubt the Palm report. It seems like a great late autumn for Palm Warbler in CO (both races).


[cid:cb87bd10-8fa5-406c-a030-aebcabcef375]


This situation in Longmont is almost identical to the Blackburnian Warbler episode in November 2011 in Greeley, the Bay-breasted Warbler episode in Boulder about this date in 2013 and the Twin Lakes (City of Boulder) episode with Nashville, an empid and another warbler (Northern Parula?) just before Thanksgiving 2015. The three common factors: November, pines (in these three cases mostly Austrian) and a particular aphid (which I believe is Eulachnus rileyi). I would wager this happens a LOT (late-moving warblers that find irrigated urban pines with an aphid food source to fuel their southward movements). Check out Brandon's report from Pueblo City Park today. Mark always finds things in the Denver Office Park. David Ely has his eye on Interlocken Business Park. What other subdivisions and building clusters landscaped heavily with pines have warblers today?


The photos to follow show the aphids the Boulder bay-breasted fed on at left and the aphids the Longmont warblers fed on this morning at right. Common name: the Powdery Pine Needle Aphid.

Both the golden crowned sparrow and the Eastern bluebird as reported by Nathan Pieplow earlier are still present, in the same locations as before. More or less.

Also some co-mingling Blue Jays and Steller’s Jays.

Subject: [cobirds] Pine Warbler and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in Pueblo City Park 11/15
Clif Smith and I found a Pine Warbler in Pueblo City Park and a juvenile
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker as well this morning. Leon Bright came and was
also able to see the Pine Warbler. The bird was up in pine trees, chipping
quite a bit, nearby Ruby-crowned Kinglet in the northeast part of the
park. The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker was over near the Tennis Courts. Clif
Smith's excellent photo of the Pine Warbler is included here.
Yellow-rumped Warblers were present as well, though the Pine Warbler wasn't
with them, at least when we all were seeing it this morning.


The "Yellow" Palm Warbler at Pueblo Reservoir, at Sailboard launching area,
was not there when I was there today. It seemed to be hanging around
sometimes with juncos and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

body plumage makes it stand out from the large throng of Mallards that it
is with. The head and neck, while lighter than the body plumage, was still
darker than the typical female Mallard. The bill is bright yellowish green.
While repositioning itself with the flock, it turned away from me with the
rump facing me and facing the sun. The undertail appeared solid black with
no apparent light feathers in the tail. It did not open its wing, so I did
not get an opportunity to see the wind and speculum.

The Golden-crowned Sparrow continues at CU Boulder's South Campus, south of
the tennis courts where a gate crosses the trail. An Eastern Bluebird was
in the Russian-olives about a quarter mile southwest of there, on the
hillside at the edge of the houses.

I did not see the warbler this morning in the place I observed it before.
It may have moved on, although there are good residential areas worth
checking along the Dry Creek Path area eastward to Willow Creek Park and
Fordham St.

I did see a nice group of seven Evening Grosbeaks.

Subject: [cobirds] Boulder CU South golden-crowned sparrow continues
The golden-crowned sparrow found yesterday at CU South was still around
this morning!


Seen feeding on the road with a group of song sparrows and juncos, past the
tennis court, near the base of the hill next to a small tree on the east
side of the road. This is a quick walk from the parking area, maybe a
quarter mile.


There were also some tree sparrows in the brush just past the tennis court
parking lot.


Good birding,

Laura Steadman

Boulder

Hello!

This morning at South Platte Reservoir, Lindsay Purifoy and I had a Palm
Warbler near the small parking lot on the SW corner. It was
skulking mainly in Rabbitbrush, dried thistle and a very small juniper
nearby. Lots of birders were out and others got to see it as well and get
pics. On the reservoir both female-plumaged Surf and Black Scoters
continue.

Cheers,

Subject: [cobirds] Hungry and cranky Bald Eagle, Arapahoe Platte River
Today while out for a walk along the river I was five minutes from my car
and the end of my walk near the Bowls underpass when I saw a Bald Eagle and
got quite the show. The eagle, a full grown adult, came flying over the
river chasing a Canada Goose. The goose was either knocked out of the air
by the eagle or forced out of the air into the river, either way I have not
seen this before. The eagle did not follow up it's attack, probably since
the goose was now with others in the river, and circled around the river.
As it was doing this the eagle spotted the local Red-tailed Hawk and
apparently decided the local hawk should not be around and flew in pursuit,
successfully chasing of the hawk. The eagle finally calmed down and landed
in a tree allowing some so-so photos. Eventually the eagle flew off, giving
me quite the show. It's winter and the eagles have returned.

A Northern Goshawk swooshed through our yard yesterday afternoon. Most of the birds feeding ignored it -- jays, juncos, etc. It made 2-3 passes, then disappeared.

Subject: [cobirds] Golden-crowned Sparrow at CU South Campus Tennis Complex
At around 10:30 this morning, while exploring the CU South Campus trail in
Boulder, I came across a Golden-crowned Sparrow loosely associating with a
flock of American Tree Sparrows. It was directly south of the parking lot
for the South Campus Tennis Complex, in the willows thickets that extend
along the east side of the trail, occasionally flying down onto the trail
itself. It was calling often, and would perch up on top of the willows
making for some great views. Photos are on my eBird checklist.

crown that I didn't have time to ID before I had to leave.

Subject: [cobirds] Immature Harris's Sparrow at Monte Vista Refuge
Well the snow and cold seem to have slowed down the birds a bit. Very few
cranes around the Valley and only saw 2 this morning on the 1S road east of
the 3E.

Home Lake is nearly all frozen, except for a small pool where Canada Geese,
American Wigeon and other ducks are keeping it open. A Kingfisher was
perched along the canal and a Great Blue Heron (yesterday). It was 5 below
zero this morning!

At the 8S observation turnout at the Monte Vista Refuge, was an
immature Harris's Sparrow (Rio Grande County). We only have a handful of
records for the San Luis Valley. Check it out and look for it in the brushy
areas.

Sometimes it seems that when I leave my camera at home, I am sure to see
something cool. Well it happened last Friday near Fort Garland when a
Northern Pygmy-owl flew into a nearby tree. All I could do was look and
appreciate it and remind myself to take the camera as if it were like
dressing up. Unfortunately, the owl was on a private ranch.

It also was a day to start thinking about Christmas Bird Counts. They are
not too far ahead.

Enjoy the birds!

Subject: [cobirds] Re: Palm Warbler Pueblo 11/12
It turns out, the Palm Warbler, appears to be the rarer "Yellow"
subspecies of Palm Warbler. Thanks to Chris Wood for looking at my
photos, and letting me know. One other time, there were two "Yellow"
Palm Warblers all winter, along the Arkansas River, below Pueblo
Reservoir dam. So, there might be a chance this bird could attempt to
winter in Pueblo. I'll certainly be keeping my eyes open for it
again. November and December is warbler time around Pueblo it seems
(last year's Pueblo Reservoir Christmas Bird Count, had an amazing 5
species of warblers), so who knows what other warblers are roaming
around right now.

Saw it and it was a Palm Warbler. Margie Joy and saw it again an hour later, in some sunflowers, feeding near some juncos, bluebirds, and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. I was able to get some photos. Wonder if it could stick around for the winter or not. They have before, kind of an odd spot to find it, though they can show up in strange places.

Subject: [cobirds] Black-and-white Warbler at Grandview Cemetery, Ft. Collins (Larimer), etc.
Matt Webb made a great discovery yesterday of a female Black-and-white Warbler at Grandview Cemetery in Fort Collins. Nick Komar, E.J. Raynor and I saw it this morning about 9:30 near the intersection of Sections 7, 8 and 9 in the southeastern part of the cemetery. It appeared suddenly and sat at the end of an American Elm branch, apparently soaking up solar energy for at least 10 minutes. It preened a bit, then flew to the base of a spruce trunk, got something unidentifiable from under a bark flake (see photo below) and flew off to the northwest. It was not seen again, despite hours of searching into mid-afternoon by several birders (those mentioned plus Joe Mammoser, David Wade, Josh Bruening and Jay Briedt). In my visits to Grandview over the years, I have only seen two other Black-and-white Warblers: 6May1983 and one detected on 10November1987 seen thru 4December1987. Last autumn about this time I believe Lori found one at the Northern Colorado Environmental Learning Center in eastern Fort Collins. I know three data points don't make a pattern but 3 sightings in November almost seem like one.


[cid:bc76faf2-e70c-4724-a0a5-7f2669d66274]
Female Black-and-white Warbler first found on 11November2018 by Matt Webb sitting rather motionless in the sun near American Elm branches heavily infested with European Elm Scale insects. The bird was NOT observed eating these, but they would be an abundant food source for an insectivore well north of where it should be on 12 November in Fort Collins, CO.


[cid:943c107d-d509-4dc4-8721-fe436726fce5]

Female B&W Warbler with something in its beak procured from under spruce bark. Suspect this is something cached earlier by either nuthatch or chickadee. I have no proof of this, don't know what the object is.




A female Hooded Merganser was in nearby City Park (at Sheldon Lake) November 8th and again early this afternoon on the 12th.

Subject: [cobirds] Tundra Swans not found at Cherry Creek SP (Arap Co) around 3 PM, Nov 12.
Light was good and the water was glassy, and I glassed it from west side
and
came up empty.

A Ranger told me "They were here yesterday."

Subject: [cobirds] southern Larimer County
At my place, at 6,000 ft. 4 miles NW of Lyons, just had sandhill cranes fly
over. Heard them, but did not spot them to count.
Pinyon jay flock is unreliable but almost daily; also have had 7 turkeys
coming by most days.
Been hearing multiple Townsend Solitaires most every day.

Subject: [cobirds] Palm Warbler Pueblo 11/12
Surprised to get out of the vechile at Sailboard Launching Area at Pueblo
Reservoir this afternoon, and hearing a pretty loud warbler chip, from
nearby cottonwood tree. Saw it and it was a Palm Warbler. Margie Joy and
saw it again an hour later, in some sunflowers, feeding near some juncos,
bluebirds, and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. I was able to get some photos.
Wonder if it could stick around for the winter or not. They have before,
kind of an odd spot to find it, though they can show up in strange places.

Subject: [cobirds] "Murray" at Pueblo Reservoir, continued
COBirders,

Joe Roller and I had an email exchange this morning that we both agreed
would be of possible historical interest to those on the list. It goes as
follows, Joe's email first:



I fondly recall getting a boater to take me out to the tires 50 yards or
less when I snapped a

photo of Murray when he/she was a first year bird. Was in CFO Journal.



Hope it's the same bird. I think it is;.



Joe Roller



Now my reply:



Joe,

I remember very well that day you "encouraged" the boater to take you closer
to Murray. I still have a mental image of you in the boat, with the rest of
us on shore watching. About that same year, at the same place, a bunch of
us were watching a Northern Harrier scatter the roosting Ring-billed Gulls
off the tires when Tony Leukering accused the gulls of being "wimps". As
soon as he said that, the harrier pounced on a lethargic, perched gull and,
with one foot, held its head under water until it drowned. I was impressed.



Leon Bright - Pueblo

Subject: [cobirds] Williamson's Sapsuckers and Cedar Waxwing in Canon City
Today I checked many of the historic locations around Csnon City where
wintering sapsuckers have found in past years. I found 1 each, a make and a
female Wiiliamson's Sapsuckers. Just a reminder that they often around
between 2 or 3 of the park areas around town. It was snowing pretty hard
so i didn't even try to get pics.

There is at least one flock of 20-25 Cedar Waxwings in Canon. I spotted
them eating in a crab apple tree right next to this busy street. I did get
some very nice pics of them which I have uploaded to my Birds and Nature
blog.

Hey all,

I'm currently watching a Black-and-white Warbler forage with a small flock
of Black-capped Chickadees, Brown Creepers and both Nuthatches in section 8
and moving into and through section G. I don't have a camera, so cannot get

Greetings

I'm looking for assistance in confirming some ducks seen resting near the
SE shore of Lagerman Res on Friday afternoon. I returned yesterday
(Saturday) in hopes of getting better photos but they were gone. The stiff
tail and
distinctive head markings tell me they are female ruddy ducks but I could
use some expert assistance to confirm. We are in there general range but I
don't normally see them here in the Boulder/Longmont area. These two photos
are the best I could do at the time.

Subject: [cobirds] Kiowa County on Saturday, November 10
Greetings,

Steve Mlodinow and I ventured to Kiowa County on Saturday, 11/10. Arriving
to Neenoshe at dawn in still, chilly 20F air, we found the area reservoirs
to be all socked in with fog. Thus, we started by land-birding the south
boat launch/Locust grove area at Neenoshe and found dizzying numbers of
white-crowned and song sparrows in the woodpiles and brush. Among the
their numbers (400+ WCSPs and 100+ SOSP's) we also discovered a few
Harris's sparrows, white-throated sparrows, late Lincoln's sparrows and a
late savannah sparrow. Additionally, we encountered two pairs of a hairy
woodpeckers and flushed a long-eared owl. A single white-winged scoter was
the best waterbird we observed, while a curve-billed thrasher at the
farmstead near the SE corner was also unexpected.
After Neenoshe, we went to view Neegronda Res. We set up shop on the east
boat launch and surveyed the calm water. Heat waves were generally
discouraging, though somewhat intermittent. Eventually we found a pacific
loon in the NE corner, 3 white-winged scoters in the SW, and an Iceland
(Thayer's) gull in the west-center of the lake. Most surprising here was
a single bushtit that noisily flew into a cottonwood near us, then departed
just as quickly into the tamarisk along the lakeshore. According to
ebird, this is a first Kiowa County record, however I believe Mark Peterson
has encountered the species in the county before.
Upper Queens Res. was our next stop and it was quite birdy. The woods and
lake edge here yielded a similar experience as at Neenoshe earlier. There
were fantastic numbers of white-crowned and song sparrows to sort through.
We eventually pulled out 8 Harris's sparrows, a white-throated, and swamp
sparrow from the flocks. In some still leafy Russian olives we found 1,
and possibly 2 male varied thrushes. One bird flushed and made its way
well behind us quickly. Shortly thereafter we found the/another male
further ahead that also worked behind us. When we double-backed to try and
get photos, Steve thought he heard 2 birds calling in different spots
simultaneously. I wasn't sure how the original bird would've worked ahead
of us in the first place so it felt to me like there were two birds here,
though we could never pin that down. We also had a group of 4 kinglets here
(3 ruby-crowned and 1 golden-crowned). Walking out to the lake edge we had
a pair of American golden-plovers which were our only shorebird species of
the day. This represents possibly Colorado's latest record in ebird for
the species.
Driving back north on Highway 287 we stopped to scan a prairie dog town
after spotting a golden eagle perched on a utility pole here. To our
amazement, we counted not 1, not 2, not 3, but 23! ferruginous hawks
sitting in the dog town and along the fenceline. At times 6-8 were visible
in one scope view. In my mind, this was the most amazing observation of
the day and a fitting end as the wind picked up and the sun went down.

Subject: RE: [cobirds] Great Black-backed Gull Pueblo Res
COBirders-- We Pueblo birders have been grousing about the impossibility of identifying the individual Great Black-backed Gull(s) that has/have shown up each winter since 1993. According to Dr. Google, the oldest bird of this species on record is an individual that was banded in Massachusetts in 1968 and last seen 1994, was 26 years, 9 months old. That means that Brandon’s sighting yesterday could be the same “Murray” that first came 25 years ago. However, that’s not at all likely, and there’s no way we will ever know.

image was heavily cropped so the quality is terrible but I am sure there

Hi all,

There’s currently a Black Scoter at Cherry Creek State Park. Viewing from Pelican Point lot, looking toward Lake Loop. No luck yet with Red-necked Grebe or Long-tailed Duck.

Subject: [cobirds] Possible Cordilleran Flycatcher Boulder County
Unexpected visitor this morning. It looks like a Cordilleran Flycatcher to
me. They visit in the spring and summer, but this seems awfully late.
Location: Boulder County, Gross Reservoir, alt. 7600 feet. Eyering appears
not broken in other images, color is olive drab, might come across a bit
blue here. Crest is more towards the back of the head than I have seen in
summer -- willow flycatcher? Any clues appreciated.

Subject: [cobirds] Long-tailed Duck, Red-necked Grebe @ Cherry Creek SP (Arapahoe county)
Hi all -
A Red-necked Grebe was present with many Western Grebes in the middle of
Cherry Creek Reservoir. Also, a female Long-tailed Duck was in with a flock
of Common Goldeneyes near Lake Loop. It flew off to Pelican Point. Also of
note was a continueing late Blue-winged Teal at Prairie Loop, some
Red-breasted Mergansers, a Horned Grebe, about 20 Bonaparte's Gulls, a
Common Loon, two Loon species (too far to ID), and a Harlan's Hawk. I hoped
to see a Scoter, but no luck. Any tips on finding scoters?

Subject: [cobirds] White-eyed Vireo is a first winter bird, based on the DARK iris. (Red Rocks, Jefferson County).
I had the pleasure of studying the excellent photos others took. (Thanks,
Steve Rash).

The lores are bright yellow.
There is a black line parallel and just below the lores.
The rest of the "spectacles" (partial eye-ring) are lighter yellow than the
lores.

But this individual is not "white-eyed", as the IRIS is DARK, a feature of
1st winter individuals. (Sibley)

This individual is of the White-eyed Vireo species, but will not have a
WHITE EYE (iris) until it matures.

Which other Colorado (or ABA) species show a white iris?

Joe Roller, Denver

Subject: [cobirds] Highlights from Mineral and Hinsdale Counties this week
Hello Colorado Birders:

I had the opportunity to do some birding on Tuesday and Wednesday in
Hinsdale and Mineral Counties and given the dearth of reports from that
part of the state, I thought I better share some highlights.

The numbers and diversity of waterfowl at Williams Creek Reservoir in
southeastern Hinsdale County on Tuesday tripped the eBird filters all over
the place so I will share the checklist. At least one hen Barrow's
Goldeneye was exciting. The most surprising high count to me was the
concentration of Bald Eagles in the NE corner of the reservoir. I had 21 in
view at one point but there were probably more. I wonder what food source
over there attracted so many Bald Eagles?
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49803020

Just after sunrise on Wednesday morning I found no birds at Wolf Creek Pass
on 160 in southeastern Mineral County but just east of the ski area I
encountered Pine Grosbeak, American Three-toed Woodpecker, Red Crossbill
and Brown Creeper.

The only open water I came across in Mineral County all day was at Big
Meadows Reservoir. I found a pair of Hooded Mergansers and some American
Wigeon among the more expected species.

Unexpected surprises in Mineral County were a Canyon Wren and a Sage
Thrasher.

The ponds along 149 in Mineral County, just east of the county line with
Hinsdale, were frozen over except for tiny open water patches that a few
desperate Pied-billed Grebes were keeping open.

Road Canyon Reservoir #1 back into Hinsdale County held a number of ducks.
Most interesting among them was a Mexican-x-Mallard looking drake. A few
photos of "it" and the other ducks can be viewed here:
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49809800

Browns Lake was frozen over.

Good birding,
Eric

Subject: [cobirds] potentially interesting mystery bird, Boulder
Hello all,

About 50 minutes ago I was walking on the Boulder Creek Path around the
parking lot 169 construction site, just north of the CU Boulder stadium,
when a bird flew across the path in front of me, headed north. My first
thought was robin, but something seemed off. I got on it in binoculars
briefly and was trying to make it into a bluebird or a thrush, but the tail
was too long, the colors were wrong, the flight style was wrong. In the
afternoon light it looked like it had a pale brown/tan back and yellowish
underparts. I lost it as it passed behind (east of) the big white inflated
dome on the football practice field. It didn't look like it was going far,
but when I ran forward, I couldn't see where it had landed.

I don't know what I saw. But in color, size, shape, and flight style, it
looked tantalizingly like a Myiarchus flycatcher. Any Myiarchus is a good
bird in Boulder County, and especially at this time of year, when the
REALLY good ones (Brown-crested, Dusky-capped, Nutting's) should be
carefully ruled out.

I walked around the Newton Court apartments, where it looked like the bird
was headed, but I didn't refind it. If you are planning to bird around
Boulder tomorrow, it might not hurt to poke around this spot just in case.
But it may require some logistical effort -- there is a home football game
tomorrow at 1:30 PM. Parking anywhere near this area will be very
difficult, especially from late morning through the afternoon. Parking lot
169 may be full of tailgaters in the morning.

Subject: [cobirds] El Paso County: Rusty Blackbird at Prospect Lake
Around 3 pm today, went looking for the Common Loon at Prospect Lake in
Memorial Park, El Paso County. Didn't find it. Keep wondering if it was
hidden by the hundreds of geese. Did get this pretty awesome bird though:
Rusty Blackbird. Was on the southeast shore of the lake.

Subject: [cobirds] Marston Rez, Denver Co
I made a couple brief stops mid-day today at Marston Rez, Denver Co. A few notables worth posting here.

From Isthmus Park I had 2 female/immature Black Scoters hanging out with a small, yet diverse mix of waterfowl. Also 5 Common Loons (one still mostly in alternate plumage) and 2 basic plumage Bonaparte’s Gulls. From the west end, I had the apparent continuing female/immature Black Scoter nearish a group of female plumage Ruddy Ducks and could see the 2 Black Scoters off Isthmus Park for a sweet total of 3! I also found/refound (?) a Pacific Loon which took off and circled for several minutes, making one close pass providing fabulous looks. I stopped following it after a while and don’t know if it landed again.

Side note- I heard numerous flocks of white-cheeked geese moving southward last night long after dark from inside (and then outside) my garage in Littleton next to Clement Park, Jeff Co. Many flocks appear to have arrived at Clement today and were flying all over the place late this afternoon. There were very few geese there yesterday afternoon. Here come the geese!

Good birding,

Subject: [cobirds] Winter Wrens in Larimer on 11/7
I had two Winter Wrens today along the Poudre River south of Prospect Rd. in Fort Collins (Larimer). One was in the Prospect Ponds Natural Area (PPNA) in a general locale where we have had several in years past. If you are taking the paved bike trail from the "Fisherman's Parking Lot" at the extreme south end of Sharp Point Drive, proceed east toward the Environmental Learning Center. The bird was along a dirt social trail that parallels a side channel of the river in the deep woods north of the paved bike trail. One would go north into this woods at the point where Lynn Hull's old rustic wood and adobe blind is now covered with orange netting.


[cid:83b25fa3-377a-45e8-9587-b092bc7cf15f]


PPNA Winter Wren


The second WIWR was a continuing bird first reported by Joe Mammoser in the Northern Colorado Environmental Center. The bird was south of the southwest corner of the loop trail that goes around the main ELC area. In the southwest corner one comes to the "Human Homes" interpretive sign. East of this sign is a bench. Southwest of the bench is an old river channel and its banks have multiple jumbles of logs and limbs from past flood events. The wren was in these tangles. I heard it "jip" once before I eventually saw it.


[cid:e21e693e-e315-4ff1-8c20-841addef181c]


ELC Winter Wren



Not much else of note along the river from Prospect south to the ELC today except a marked increase in Cackling Geese (most of them being in the pond along the ELC access road. Joe Mammoser and I checked blackbirds in the Sharp Point feedlot and only saw redwings, Brewer's Blackbirds and starlings (NO rusty blackbird). A sharp-shinned hawk was brunching on a robin e of Liberty Commons School. The black-capped chickadees enjoyed cattail seeds, among other things. A kingfisher caught a crayfish in the ditch along the ELC access road.


Probably the most surprising thing on this rather cold day was a millipede crossing the bike trail. Why did the millipede cross the road? I don't know but there's a joke in there somewhere.

All,

A first-year male Surf Scoter was at Boulder Reservoir this morning from
9:30 to 11:30. It was in the western half of the Reservoir and seen from
the south shore.
It was with a large raft of Western Grebes and other ducks including lots
of female mergansers and a couple of female Lesser Scaup. We also saw the
continuing Red-necked Grebe, but it was distant in the far northwest corner
of the reservoir.

This morning, I chased two birds reported by Lori Zabel at Prospect Ponds
Natural Area in Fort Collins (on Sharp Point Drive). I came across Lori
Pivonka and Sheila Webber and we searched unsuccessfully for the
Yellow-billed Cuckoo. However, we found and photographed a female Rusty
Blackbird in non-breeding plumage which had been tentatively ID'ed by Lori
Zabel yesterday. The blackbird was seen by other birders and still present
as of noon. It was seen in the Russian-olives between the bike path and the
northernmost pond (closest to E Prospect Dr). This is just north of the
natural area parking lot closest to E Prospect Dr.

From: Steven Brown <sbrown37...>
Subject: [cobirds] CSR Fall Report
Hey COBIrders,

If you are interested, below I have a report for banding numbers at Clear Spring Ranch for Fall 2018.


I operated my station in willows along Fountain Creek (and across from irrigated hayfields) from August 6-October 28, most days from dawn to about 11:00.
2320 birds were banded, my second best season by about 30 birds but I was closed about 15 days compared to 2016, for travel and weather, while I had NO closed days that year! I wasn’t expecting much this fall since foliage was severely damaged by summer drought, then intensive hail damage. I was wrong!

As mentioned before, I open early to try for migrating Yellow Warblers, which we saw very few of during my falls helping at Chico Basin Ranch banding, but anecdotally I had observed moving as early as July. YEWA’s taper off about Labor Day, to be replaced by migrating Wilson’s Warblers through September, and Orange-crowned Warblers and Ruby-crowned Kinglets through October. Also of note has been the good numbers of Northern Waterthrush in August.

Warbler Numbers for Fall 2018
N. Waterthrush - 17 (best is 19)
Yellow Warbler - 157 (best previous was 68 in 2017!)
Wilson’s Warbler - 304 (best previous was 198 in 2017)
Orange-crowned Warbler - 62 (best previous was 55 in 2017)
Common Yellowthroat - 26 (best was 64 in 2016)
MacGillivray’s Warbler - 13 (best was 12 in 2016)

other warblers I usually don’t see:
Townsend’s Warbler - 2
Blackpoll Warbler - 1
American Redstart - 1

Flycatcher Numbers for 2018 - 40 of various species were banded, (best previous was 27 in 2017)
Western Wood-Pewee - 22
Dusky Flycatcher - 2
Least Flycatcher - 2
Willow Flycatcher -11
Western Kingbird - 2 (early August, same net, same day, juv male and female)

Ruby-crowned Kinglet - 52 (previous best was 12 in 2017!)

Vireo Numbers - 11 (best previous 5) First at station for Cassin’s (4) and Plumbeous. and most for Red-eyed (2), and Warbling, including a very
late WAVI on 10/25.

Gray Catbird - 18, below average, (best was 64 in 2016)
Yellow-breasted Chat - 14, about average (best was 20 in 2017)

Sparrow Numbers for 2018
Chipping Sparrow - 822 (about 500 in first week of September!) (best was 1031 in 2016)
Clay-colored Sparrow- 218 (best previous was 38 in 2016!) Particularly interesting early this fall.
Brewer’s Sparrow - 31 (bet previous was 7 in 2017)
Lincoln’s Sparrow - 103 (best previous was 151 in 2016)
Gambell’s White-crowned Sparrow - 103 (best was 151 in 2016)
Mountain White-crowned Sparrow - 31 (previous best was 5 a couple of times)
White-throated Sparrow - 4 (best, but about average)
Song Sparrow - 61 (about average - best was 116 in 2016)

Grosbeaks and Buntings - much below average. In 2016 they gorged in a standing oat crop next to my nets - not this year.
Black-headed Grosbeak - 1 (about average, but 30 in 2016)
Blue Grosbeak - 0 (usually see some)
Lazuli Bunting - 13 (87 in 2016, 44 in 2017)
Indigo Bunting 1 - average

It was a fun and productive fall, and I really enjoy comparing year-to-year numbers (now with 7 falls to compare) and speculating on why I am seeing what I am. Every year is different.

If you have any questions about particular species numbers let me know.

With how much the Fork-tailed Flycatched moved around (n. Larimer County to
Casper, Casper to Boulder County), I'm keeping my eyes open. The bird must
have flown very fast. The spot in Casper he was seen is about 200 miles
from Lafeyette, and it traveled there in three weeks. Therefore, I say he
(or she) could be anywhere in a 200 mile (or more) radius of Lafayette.
This is most of Colorado. Suffice to say, I'm keeping my eyes open.
Apparently we have a Thick-billed Kingbird record from 1992. North Dakota
just got their first a couple weeks ago, maybe we're do for another one.
Also, Gray Kingbirds have been seen as far inland as Michigan, Illinois,
Missouri, and Arkansas. It may be stretching it, but maybe we'll get it in
Colorado sometime.

Thank you Joyce! The way you organized the RBA was so much better than my

From: W. Robert Shade III <wrshade3...>
Subject: [cobirds] Musings on Tyrants (no new sightings)
Now that there is a lull in rare bird reports, perhaps there is room for
reflecting on my good fortune with the genus Tyrannus in the last few
months. All flycatchers in North America are Tyrannidae but only the
kingbirds are in the genus Tyrannus. Micki and I and many of you enjoyed
the exciting Tyrannus savana (Fork-tailed Flycatcher) about Oct 22 at
Prince Lake #2 in Boulder County (didn't know it was a Tyrannus until
then). Then there was the Tyrannus melancholicus (Tropical Kingbird) near
the S. Platte Reservoir about Oct 5. For me personally Cassins' Kingbird
(T. vociferans) was a new yard bird (#102) on Sep 21, and the original
tyrant T. Tyrannus (Eastern Kingbird) was a new yardbird (#101) on Aug 20.
Just lacking Scissor-tailed Flycatcher (T. forficatus).

I assume from the CFO state list that the Fork-tailed will be Colorado
#503? Tyrannus trivia from Sibley (I) on pages 334 and 335: "Each Tyrannus
species builds a stick nest in the outer branches of a tree." "All species
in the genus Tyrannus have an orange or red median crown-stripe usually
concealed by the dark crown feathers; the stripe is brightest in adult male
and exposed only during displays." Didn't know either trivium! They are
"tyrants" who do not tolerate other species (especially larger species like
crows) but I did see an Eastern and a Western Kingbird peacefully
co-existing in the same bush at Flagler Wildlife Area last May.

Farewell all Tyrannidae until next spring. Maybe I can add Couch's Kingbird
to my ABA list one of these years!

A lot has changed since I first started. For one we no longer

Subject: Re: [cobirds] retire from RBA
Thanks, Joyce!
Wow! 14 years of daily pre-dawn WORK to compile the Colorado RBA!
It is recognized as the best of its kind ANYWHERE, with its excellent
format and diligent, daily updates.

You have earned the deep respect and gratitude of the Colorado birding
community.

Subject: [cobirds] retire from RBA
CoBirders,

I want to let you know that I intend to retire from compiling the RBA on 1
Jan 2019.
I have been compiling the RBA for 14 years and think that it is time for
some new blood
or possibly some new means of broadcasting the information.

A lot has changed since I first started. For one we no longer have the
phone line which
is sort of how it started. News come from many sources now: CoBirds,
WSBN, e-Bird,
and Facebook. When we have a “hot” bird or birds it takes a LOT of time to
compile the
reports.

Good Birding,
Joyce Takamine
Boulder

I suggest that you quickly sent a disclaimer to all of your invitees and beg them NOT TO reply to COBIRDS.

I'm coming, and working my way through the book now. It will be good to be with like minds on that day.

Nothing else is needed.
Most birders make mistakes and are quick to ignore that kind of things.

The most revealing and embarrassing note I ever wrote (about a proposed merger) was meant to go only to my partners at work,
but went to "ALL," so every secretary and nurse received it!!!
Talk about red face.

Hi Carol,

I'll be there, too. Elaine won't be able to come because she and Dave are
in Costa Rica. (All these international travelers in our group!) It will
be very nice to be together with friends on election day to talk about
butterflies and other wonders of nature!

Subject: [cobirds] Finally, in Boulder
I've wanted to see a White-throated Sparrow in Boulder County for nearly 25
years. Whenever one is posted on Cobirds or eBird, I race off to try to
find it, but I've always dipped, and trudged away from the site with the
feeling that White-throated Sparrows are birds that other people see in
Boulder.

Until today.

After work, I wandered over to the Boulder Community Gardens a block away
from my home, in hopes that I might catch a decent photo of a starling or a
robin.

As I was photographing a White-crowned Sparrow in the lovely horizontal
light of a late-October evening, I thought to myself, "Wouldn't it be cool
if a White-throated Sparrow popped up right here?" And then, as if cued by
an off-stage director, a White-throated Sparrow popped up, literally
exactly centered in my camera's viewfinder. I didn't even have to
re-focus. I just pressed down on the shutter button, and there it was.

Wow.

Other cool birds at the Boulder Community Gardens: two adult-plumaged Bald
Eagles sparring with each other in mid-air. I managed a decent photo of
them, too. Three Cedar Waxwings, which also posed for my lens. And a
first-of-the-season American Tree Sparrow perched in the fading light.

If you'd like to see the photos, they're here:
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49588574.

Good birding everybody. This October has been a magical month for Boulder
birds.

At 10:30 on October 31st I saw a Northern Parula. Yellow breast with a dark band across it. White below the chest.white eye ring, possibly interupted. Grey(light blue) on back and head. Two white wing bands. It was in the large tree off the Northeast corner of the Center
I returned at 2:00 PM, but the pattern of the birds had changed and there were few birds in the vicinity. I did see a Lincoln's Sparrow.

Hey, all.

Sombrero Marsh, Boulder County, just east of downtown Boulder, is one of
the most accessible birding hotspots around. It's right off busy Arapahoe
Road and easily birded by those with limited mobility, limited time, or
both. This Halloween morning, Wed., Oct. 31, I stopped by for a quick visit
and was pleased to find 2 Swamp Sparrows, 1 Eastern Bluebird, and 1
Virginia Rail. Here's my eBird checklist, including photos and audio:

Nearby Baseline Reservoir had 2 Common Loons.

Subject: [cobirds] Winter Wren, Environmental Learning Center
This morning at CSU's Environmental Learning Center in Fort Collins I found
a Winter Wren. It was towards the southeast corner. The Wren was about 50
feet south of a sign that is titled "Wanted, Habitat - Dead or Alive". It
foraged along the dry bank just to the east of the trail.

It appears the same winter adult Black-legged Kittiwake that I saw at
Pueblo Reservoir this afternoon, was seen this morning at Memorial
Park in Colorado Springs, and it was photographed up there, mine was
too far out to get any photos. Black-legged Kittiwake is much rarer
of a bird in El Paso County, than Pueblo County.

Subject: [cobirds] Pacific Loon continues at Marston Reservoir
I saw the previously reported Pacific and Common Loons from a vantage
point
along Bow-Mar Drive, where one is allowed to pull completely off the
roadway onto the grass.
This is near the pin marker for the eBird hotspot named "Marston Reservoir
Complex--Marston Reservoir *East* End".

I looked due south and the loons were 2/3 of the way across the lake,
between a red and a yellow buoy. Seeking a
closer look, I drove to the cul de sac of West Layton Way, which can be
reached by going south on South Wadsworth St,
where the far west end of the water comes close to the chain link fence.
That way one avoids trespassing.

However from that cul de sac, houses blocked views of the loon, and one is
prohibited from walking east into the nature
preserve. So I tried from the far west end of the lake, thru the
chain link fence and although I could see the loons, but they were far off
and into the sun.

So IF you want to try for the loons, you might need to try all of those 3
vantage points or even Isthmus Park to get a decent view.

Joe Roller, Denver

Subject: [cobirds] Calmer times in Boulder/Larimer
John Vanderpoel and I headed out late this morning to visit some northern Boulder and southern Larimer reservoirs. As opposed to the goings on of the previous seven days, not too much excitement this time around. The east side of Terry Reservoir off US 287 in Boulder County north of Longmont had a at least 10 Bonaparte's Gulls, and Dry Creek Reservoir SE of Carter Lake had a Surf Scoter and a lingering Say's Flycatcher. Some interesting paradoxes out there, though. Newell Lake just east of Berthoud had 635 Ring-billed Gulls in a single species (as far as we could tell) flock. Hummel Reservoir, about 0.5 miles away across fallow fields, and roughly the same size, had none. Our only Canvasbacks, 68 of them, were also all together in the not very large Twin Mounds Reservoir east of Campion.

Subject: [cobirds] Around West Arapahoe
I spent the morning and early afternoon around west Arapahoe. Highlights
today (10/28) include:

- at Blackmer Lake: a rather later Western Tanager. Swamp Sparrow. At
least one, possibly two, striking, very dark Red-tails.
- in Littleton, a flock of 45 or so Sandhill Cranes, catching a thermal
around Broadway & Littleton Blvd.
- my first Merlin of the year, at the Rollin D. Barnard Equestrian Park
in Greenwood Village. As the local raptors typically do, the Merlin was
perched along the enormous transmission towers. I got to see it
(apparently) flush north when a Red-tailed Hawk came through, then u-turn
and head south to pursue a flock of waxwings already in flight.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Re: Teachable moment. Please post your photos for study.
Although ducks do hybridize and Aythya hybrids, eg Ring-necked x Tufted
Duck hybrids occur,
the "structural features" Glenn Walbek mentioned are evident hear, so a
juvy RN Duck molting into
first winter plumage fits well with your great photo.
Those structural features would include:
Flat and upward sloped top of head, with peak at rear of crown
Flat, straight back of head.
Tufted would have rounded head.
Bill of RN Duck is slightly longer than scaup or Tufted Duck, although that
is not diagnostic.
What other structural features can we see?
One interesting thing about this photo is that the eye is bright yellow.
Glenn's photos of juvy
RN Duck showed dull yellow eye! Is the same individual or is eye color
affected by lighting?

Finally in the European guide, "Bird Identification" by Harris, Tucker and
Vinicombe, on page 45,
there is a drawing of a juvy/first winter RN Duck with the caption, "Eye
dull, WISPY CREST DUE TO MOULT".
Also a hybrid (adult) drawing is on the same page.

What else can we learn that will help us separate juveniles of these very
similar species - RNDU and *TUDU*!
There was certainly a big TOO DOO at Marston yesterday.

Joe Roller, Denver

Thanks to Bil Ford, this morning we were able to get better photos of this

post: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49516513 for Marston Reservoir.
Note that the bird did not dive while we watched (so I assume the head is

over by the isthmus, very near the shore. I have more photos in case there

Subject: [cobirds] Waxwings! In west Centennial, Arapahoe County
Hello Fellow Birders,
   A small flock of Cedar Waxwings just invaded my little townhouse yard in west Centennial, near Holly & Arapahoe.  Gobbling down the little fruits on the "crabapple" tree (I have no idea what kind of tree it really is, something the builder planted when these places were built in the early 80's).
   We've also been inundated by robins the past few days.
Keep Smilin',Kevin

I saw your revised checklist.
Would help me learn the structural points, etc if you re-attached the
close photos you took of the RN Duck, as were on your earlier list.
Thanks, Joe

I wholeheartedly second what Joey said.

Glenn, you led with "today I reminded myself I am not the best birder in
the world." But the mark of a good birder is not a lack of
misidentifications. The mark of a good birder is how he or she handles
misidentifications. You are certainly one of the best birders in Colorado.
(An awful lot of us owe you a Golden-crowned Warbler, among many, many
other fine birds!)

"I’d rather be wrong and have a clean list than fudge a rarity." Hats off
to that sentiment. Thanks for everything you do for the Colorado birding
community.

Subject: [cobirds] Re: birding pifalls
Thank you Glenn.

First, for finding and scrutinizing this bird and notifying people of your
first impressions of the bird (yes, nearly all your first impressions are
correct :-) ). It is better to get people onto a bird and find out it
might not be the bird you thought, than the opposite...telling no one and
then showing photos of a rarity that no one can chase because it left!
So, for letting us all know what you suspected WAS the right thing to do.

Second, thank you for posting your uncertainty and suspicions. It allows
all of us to reflect, "Did I, personally, see enough detail on the bird to
make a positive identification?" Many times when out birding we "blindly"
accept a companion's sightings. When we bird with a friend or an organized
group we should, like Glenn, want a clean list for ourselves. Sometimes we
get caught up in the "chase" and allow "peer pressure" to influence the
bird identifications we make (or attempt to make at great distances).

Again, a big "THANK YOU" to Glenn for explaining his decision process and
conclusions. We all need to re-evaluate what we saw...and see in the
future. Great birders like Glenn DO make mistakes occasionally, but that
is how great birders became great...they make mistakes and learn. I guess
I need to make more mistakes!

Thanks Glenn.

Joey.

Subject: [cobirds] birding pifalls
So today I reminded myself I am not the best birder in the world. Something everyone needs to pay attention to. First impressions are often correct but not always. Tony Leukering taught me shape and structure are huge in bird ID. Plumage changes but structure rarely does. I was fairly convinced the Marston duck was a tufted duck. I saw and photo’d the bird fairly close up. In defense of everyone else who reported this bird, it was never close to shore after my initial sighting. From a distance, it appeared to be a TUDU but was not easy to confirm. After looking at my photos, I became suspicious. Shape and structure did not look right. I’d rather be wrong and have a clean list than fudge a rarity.

I’m ok with mis-IDing this one, because I won’t next time.

Subject: [cobirds] Marston tufted duck
I saw this bird on the west side of the reservoir and was somewhat puzzled.  Then I saw small but noticeable feather tufts on the back of the head, more noticeable than my distant pictures show.  I have seen exactly one tufted duck prior to this (not a juvi) so I am no expert on this species.  I was able to get some camera phone digi-scoped pictures which I have attached to my list.  I have to admit I am a bit troubled by the head shape of this bird.  It is a juvi so I am ok with the seemingly lack of a dark breast.  The head is shaped a bit like ring-necked duck imo, but it lacks the pale eyering and eyeline.  And I’ve never seen a ring-necked duck with tufts on the head with no eyering or eyeline. I was able to find similar looking juvi ‘tufted duck’ pictures online.   Comments are welcomed.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] subspecific ID of the Boulder Co. Fork-tailed Flycatcher
In addition to subspecies identification, the pronounced
emargination/notching of the 3 outer primaries that Christian pointed
out also provides confirmation that the bird is a male. According to
both Pyle's /Identification Guide to North American Birds, Part 1 /and
Howell's /Rare Birds of North America,/ females of ssp. /savana/ have
tapered/pointed outer primaries that are not strongly notched.  Here's a
figure from Howell's book showing the distinction:


On a related note, a relevant research paper on Fork-tailed Flycatcher
wing morphology was recently published in the journal /Evolutionary
Ecology/: Provinciato, I.C.C., M.S. Auaujo & A.E. Jahn. 2018. Drivers of
wing shape in a widespread Neotropical bird: a duel role of sex-specific
and migration-related functions. /Evolutionary Ecology /32: 379-393.
In the paper, the authors suggest that wing shape differences between
males and females, and between the migratory ssp. /savana /and the
non-migratory ssp./monachus, /are the product of a mix of selection
pressures, with some (e.g., efficiency in foraging, predator avoidance,
and migration) acting on both males and females, while others are
sex-specific (e.g., male courtship displays).

Subject: [cobirds] Tufted Duck, Marston Res.
I am looking at what appears to be a 'good' tufted duck on the west side of Marston Reservoir fairly close to shore. The bird is a female / juvi type with very small tufts coming out of the back of the head.

A least one first winter Harris’s sparrow is still(?) here. It’s drinking from my leaky spigot on the front of my house. It hangs out in the spruce/fir trees on the west side of my front yard when not eating.

All the birds are thirsty.

Please call if you are interested in seeing it.

Subject: [cobirds] Black-throated Blue Warbler, DeWeese Res., Custer
This afternoon I found a male Black-throated Blue Warbler at DeWeese Reservoir SWA in Custer County.  It was in the willows along Grape Creek below the dam and near the concrete flume. I watched it catching flies over the creek but had no chance to get a photo.
This is the twenty-fifth warbler species I've seen at DeWeese Res. beginning in 2002.  Most of the rare species were found the brushy areas immediately above and below the dam.
DeWeese Res.is located at 7800' in the Wet Mountain Valley, between two mountain ranges.

Subject: [cobirds] subspecific ID of the Boulder Co. Fork-tailed Flycatcher
Hi all,

When Fork-tailed Flycatchers show up in the US or Canada, birders often attempt to ascribe them to one of the two likely populations from which they might come: the widespread South American austral migrant, savana, or the resident monachus of Central America.

This article summarizes the occurrence of each Fork-tailed Flycatcher subspecies north of their normal range and offers guidance on how to separate them:

https://www.westernfieldornithologists.org/archive/V25/25(3)%20p0113-p0127.pdf

The most reliable feature is the level of primary emargination. The nominate savana has pronounced emargination on the outer three primaries, while monachus shows this notch on only the outer two primaries. The more likely savana also tends to lack a white collar around the back of the neck, where the gray back color often meets the black nape.

Here are some photos of the Boulder County bird that elucidate these differences:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49438796<https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49401824>
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49381812
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49381592
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49411141

Based on these shots, the Boulder bird can be identified as being from the nominate South American population, savana. Folks might want to update their notes if they're interested in that level of ID.

Subject: [cobirds] N. Shrikes - Centennial (Arapahoe)
By local standards, it was a birdy morning around west Centennial
(Arapahoe). I saw a Northern Shrike at Willow Spring Open Space and, later,
nearby Holly Park. Could be the same bird, but perhaps there are two in the
area. Most winters, at least one Northern Shrike can be found at Willow
Spring. Lincoln's and Swamp Sparrows (one each) at Willow Spring were
highlights, as were the several Say's Phoebes still in the area. Townsend's
Solitaires were also at both locations. Many House Finches and Song
Sparrows. Oh, and a Wilson's Snipe in mud along the Little Dry Creek at
Holly Park. These birds prefer the expansive marsh at Willow Spring, and
this one flushed, seeming to fly off toward there, as I (unknowingly)
approached. A kestrel was perched above it -- would those birds take a bird
as bulky as a snipe?

It was very slow banding at Clear Spring Ranch this morning, but I did band another Ruby-crowned Kinglet (#48), and a very late Warbling Vireo (juv). My last one this year was 9/6, and my latest ever before was 10/9 (!)

Enjoy the weather,

Steve Brown

Juveniles have rusty feathers in their breast bands. The Birds of North America account for Belted Kingfisher contains this description for juveniles:

Compared to adults, juveniles (birds in Juvenile plumage) have a darker crest, more white in the wing coverts, larger white tips on secondaries, and white spots on the central pair of rectrices (like adult females), and more cinnamon or brown color in their slaty breast band (Ridgway 1914b<https://birdsna-org.ezproxy2.library.colostate.edu/Species-Account/bna/species/belkin1/references#REF11704>).

(As an aside, the BNA account's first author is Jeff Kelly, whose PhD work on Belted Kingfishers was done here at CSU.)

Multiple photos in Cornell's Macaulay Library show birds with similar rusty pectoral bands: https://search.macaulaylibrary.org/catalog?taxonCode=belkin1&mediaType=Photo&sort=rating_desc&__hstc=26441058.ab8f706b79b79fc3e5185ffe2a8f0092.1540436527033.1540436527033.1540436527033.1&__hssc=26441058.8.1540436527035&__hsfp=548646774

Great day of birding at Red Rock Canyon today. I saw Fox Sparrow (County
Lifer),. Also a Harris , White-throated and White-crowned Sparrow. Others
saw a Canyon Towhee. Some nice pictures on Ebird from Rob Hinds, Alan
Ketcham, John Drumond and Jim Merrit.
