Subject: Re: [cobirds] Sprague's Pipits, Yuma County, 10/13
All,
After hearing Nathan's report, figured I'd add to the Sprague's Pipit conversation. When I was at Pipit Hill yesterday (10/12), I had similar luck. I located a pair of birds almost right away, and kept hearing/seeing them throughout my time there. 
Being my first time at this location, and going off of previous reports, I was rather conservative in reporting 2 individuals. I felt as though there were closer to 5, but that number seemed rather absurd at the time (noted in my eBird report). I'm guessing that number is closer to the actual number of birds in the area than I originally thought!
I wonder if Sprague's Pipits had a successful breeding season, or if it's simply just their migratory peak? Regardless, it was a great experience up on Pipit Hill this weekend.

Hi all,
I accompanied the CU Boulder Birding Club on a trip for Sprague's Pipits at the traditional spot near Hale in Yuma County. We had at least 5 Sprague's (I think more), with our first scope views of a bird on the ground after only a couple minutes of searching. I've never had such good luck with the species before!

We then spent a little time in northwest Kansas, where the highlight was the long-staying Curve-billed Thrasher southeast of St. Francis. We finished the day below the dam at Flagler SWA, where the best bird was a juvenile male Red-naped Sapsucker. Flagler had nary a warbler, but lots of Chipping Sparrows and Sandhill Cranes, a Townsend's Solitaire and a Swamp Sparrow.
Good birding,
Nathan PieplowBoulder

Subject: [cobirds] Sprague's Pipits, Yuma County, 10/13
Hi all,

I accompanied the CU Boulder Birding Club on a trip for Sprague's Pipits at
the traditional spot near Hale in Yuma County. We had at least 5 Sprague's
(I think more), with our first scope views of a bird on the ground after
only a couple minutes of searching. I've never had such good luck with the
species before!

We then spent a little time in northwest Kansas, where the highlight was
the long-staying Curve-billed Thrasher southeast of St. Francis. We
finished the day below the dam at Flagler SWA, where the best bird was a
juvenile male Red-naped Sapsucker. Flagler had nary a warbler, but lots of
Chipping Sparrows and Sandhill Cranes, a Townsend's Solitaire and a Swamp
Sparrow.

Good birding,

Nathan Pieplow
Boulder

Subject: [cobirds] Timnath Reservoir Big Sit
The beginning of the afternoon at Timnath Reservoir started out great with
some migrating hawks. Within minutes of arriving back in our circle we
spotted a Sharp-shinned and Ferruginous Hawk making their way southward. A
few minutes later a Northern Harrier flew over as our 80th species of the
day from the circle since some of the Ruddy Ducks from this morning were
visible from the circle when we arrived. The rest of the evening was
pretty slow, but we added a late Yellow-headed Blackbird while watching
hundreds (probably thousands) of Common Grackles and Red-winged Blackbirds
head to their evening roost somewhere south of the reservoir. I was also
able to spot a few Redheads in the duck flock which had a decent number of
Canvasbacks. Carrie went on a little walk to the west and saw a Say's
Phoebe which luckily landed on a sign in an open field after she notified
me bringing out total to 83 species for the day from the circle. She also
found a Hermit Thrush on her walk, but we didn't have high hopes that it
would be visible from our circle. I think we finished the day with 87
species at Timnath Reservoir (4 of which we could not find from the Big
Sit) and 90 overall for the day with Red-breasted Nuthatch, Parasitic
Jaeger, and American Crow (I spent a solid 30 minutes scanning to the west
hoping to spot one from our circle) at Warren Lake in the middle of the day.

Good Birding,

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Barr Lake, 10/13/19
Our final day was the slowest of the season - made us feel that it was a
good time to end! Banded only 7 birds, and then caught another 14 that we
had caught earlier this season (a few migrants that had yet to move on and
other birds that are likely to stick around for the winter). The 7 new
birds were:

Red-shafted Flicker 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 1
Spotted Towhee 1
Chipping Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 1

People have noted that this year seemed slow, but in reality, with a total
of about 1450 birds, it was above the average. I suspect it seemed slow
compared to last year, which was a record-breaker at just over 1900. I
look forward to getting the data into the computer and looking at the
results by species. In the meantime, my best memories of the season were
not necessarily rare birds but unexpected combinations that provided
enlightening moments - the three young Blue Grosbeaks with their mom; the
three young Savannah Sparrows, caught on different days and so easily
confused with other species; the adult and young Blue Jays, caught
together, that provided a perfect example of the difference in plumage
between hatch year and after. We had a few really rare birds which were
real treats, including the Black-throated Blue and Prothonotary Warblers,
but my absolute favorite species of the season was the male Golden-crowned
Kinglet - a stunning bird up close and personal!

Thanks to the wonderful team of volunteers who make it possible for us to
run this station 6 days a week for 7 weeks every fall! And thanks to all
of you who shared the season with us!

Subject: [cobirds] Timnath Reservoir BIG SIT -- Halftime Report
Carrie Olson and I decided to spend the morning at a point near the
northeast corner of Timnath Reservoir as part of the annual Big Sit. I
have done a few in the east, and this was my first one ever in Coloardo.
Unfortunately, it is fairly late in the year for good songbird migration
but since the waterbirds are moving pretty good right now we decided to
focus on a spot that let us see a good chunk of the reservoir while still
having a few trees around for songbirds.

The morning started off great with a number of lingering shorebirds as well
as a huge gull flock. We were able to pick up Sanderling, Black-bellied
Plover, Pectoral Sandpiper, both Yellowlegs, Wilson's Snipe, and American
Avocet as part of a 12 shorebird day. A single Franklin's Gull was a nice
pickup and an immature Sabine's Gull gave us our biggest surprise of the
day. The dabbling ducks moved through in numbers with all the expected
species present. Diving ducks were a little tougher to come by with a few
misses we hope to pick up this evening. A flock of Ruddy Ducks and a
single Lesser Scaup hid in the western section of the reservoir not visible
from the circle, but most of the expected grebe species as well as an
American Coot finally swam far enough east to be visible from our circle.
Raptors were very few and far between, but I spotted a distant Cooper's
Hawk circling in the air a few minutes before calling it a morning.

Although the songbirds were not the highlight, we did ok with a few
lingering species like Barn Swallow, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, House Wren, and
Orange-crowned Warbler. American Pipits and Horned Larks were around in
good numbers this morning. Many large flocks of blackbirds flew over for
most of the morning giving us a decent diversity, with two Great-tailed
Grackles being the highlights. I did have a Lesser Goldfinch (pretty rare
at Timnath) while walking around looking for migrant songbirds, but
unfortunately it wasn't within (or even close to) the 17-foot diameter Big
Sit circle.

We are going to head back out this evening to see if we don't have to
settle for Rock Pigeon as our 76th and final new species for the day within
the Big Sit circle.

We also made a quick stop at Warren Lake on the way home so Carrie could
see her lifer Parasitic Jaeger.

Good Birding and stay tuned for the much less exciting 2nd half of the
Timnath Big Sit later this evening,
Andy Bankert

Subject: [cobirds] Bewick's Wren, Bitterbrush Trail, Boulder County, Oct. 12
Hey, all. I saw and heard a Bewick's Wren up the Bitterbrush Trail (access
from Hall Ranch trailhead, Lyons), Boulder County, earlier today, Sat.,
Oct. 12. The bird was about 1,000 ft. along the trail from the upper
parking area. Going out there and trying to see the wren is probably like
endeavoring to find a needle in a haystack. Fortunately, the bird was
vocal, so be on the listenout for it. Here's a link to my eBird checklist,
with audio of two of the call types the wren was giving:

For what it's worth, the bird was keeping rather close company with a
Canyon Wren, so if you hear a Canyon Wren along the trail, that might be a
propitious omen.

Otherwise, a nice morning, with lots of Townsend's Solitaires defending
winter feeding territories, Woodhouse's Scrub-Jays aplenty, sparrows
underfoot continually, and an adult Golden Eagle soaring above the
rimrocks. Saw a dainty sulphur and heard a few Allard's ground crickets
(not birds).

Also, I offer this observation about the sorts of folks who use the trail:

* mountain bikers: courteous, aware, dangerous
* trail runners: rude, aware, safe
* birders: courteous, unaware, safe
* dog walkers: courteous, unaware, dangerous
* equestrians: rude, unaware, dangerous

There's gotta be one of those high school logic problems in all of that!

COBirders,

My really not so great photos are here. Warren Lake is big and the jaeger pretty much stuck to the middle of the lake while I was there. Hopefully someone else got better shots.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Barr Lake, 10/12/19
On a morning that started quite chilly but became very nice as the sun rose
in the sky, we caught 21 new birds:

Blue Jay 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 9
Hermit Thrush 1
Spotted Towhee 1
Chipping Sparrow 3
Song Sparrow 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 3

Tomorrow (Sunday) is our last day this fall! We are anticipating another
chilly but sunny day, with a few more of the late fall migrants we've been
catching in recent days, and perhaps another "big bird" or two - Jay,
Flicker, maybe a Hawk?! We plan to open at 7:40 and have birds back at the
station by about 8:30. We will start taking down the station at 11:40 or
earlier if we run out of birds or have weather problems.

Hi,

To circle back on my recent post mentioning 445 *White-throated Swifts*
entering a roost at Deer Creek in JeffCo on 10/4. I viewed at evening again
with 3 others for my little DFO field trip on 10/7 and we observed 119
flying into the roost crack, plus another 6 for a count of 125 swifts that
night. This proved to be their last night at the roost. They arrived later
than on previous nights and went almost immediately into the roost, with
all 119 going in over just 2 min. time. I returned on 10/8 but did not see
any swifts at the roost or nearby. And then the storm on 10/9.

Good numbers of *Broad-tailed Hummers* have lingered around my feeding
station, with at least 5 on 10/11 and at least 4 this morning 10/12. I
think one imm. make and 4 females. These are not late for my home area yet,
but the numbers are above average for the 2nd week of Oct.

Subject: Invitation: Chatfield BIG SIT!

Hello COBIRDERS!

Looking for something to do a week from today...Sunday? How about some
leisure birding at a Big Sit?

What is a "Big Sit" you ask?

Well a Big Sit is similar to the birding event called a "Big Day", in both
events participants try to count as many species as possible, the difference
is that in a Big Day you travel all over a geographical area whereas during
a Big Sit you sit (or stand) in one location (a 17-foot diameter "circle")
and count as many species seen or heard as possible in the course of the
day.
This is a worldwide event and as of this posting there are already over
100 Big Sit "circles" registered for this year's event!

The Denver Field Ornithologists and Colorado Parks & Wildlife will once
again
sponsor and I will host "The Big Sit!" at Chatfield State Park next Sunday,
October 13th. This will be the 16th year for this fun and frivolous event.
It
is open to the public and EVERYONE is welcome! It will be held from dawn to

dusk, come for an hour or stay all day, whatever works for your schedule.
In addition to a day list, we will perform hourly counts so that every hour
there
are "new" birds to be added to the hour's count.

"The Big Sit!" at Chatfield will be located at the Heronry Overlook on the
east side of the reservoir. A park map is at the entrance stations. The
Park is
fully open (after all the construction), come see the changes and help find
a few
birds!

Bring your own chair or use the bench seating provided by the
heronry overlook deck. Bring binoculars, spotting scope (if you have),
food, water, treats to share or whatever you need to spend time birding!
Colorado Parks & Wildlife will be providing a canopy for shade from the sun,

or shelter from rain. So far, this year's weather looks to be perfect...for
once!

If you cannot attend "The Big Sit!" at Chatfield create your own! The
details and rules can be found at:

<https://www.birdwatchersdigest.com/bwdsite/connect/bigsit/about.php>
https://www.birdwatchersdigest.com/bwdsite/connect/bigsit/about.php

The "DFO Insaniacs" (as we are registered) have had the highest "Big Sit"
count for Colorado 16 years running! Come help DFO's Big Sit at Chatfield
stay on top!

The last day of season started out cold, and we weren't able to open until
it warmed up at 9:30. This led us to catch only 2 new birds and 1
recapture. This last day gives us a grand total for the season of 221 new
birds of 30 species, as well as 11 birds that were banded in previous
seasons.

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 1
Hermit Thrush 1 recapture

If you want to visit the banding station in the future, please check with
the Grand Valley Audubon Society for next year's banding dates!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Barr Lake, 10/11/19
We waited until the sun was up and warming the nets before doing a partial
open today. It was a beautiful morning, but very slow in terms of birds,
at least those down low enough to get caught in our nets. We spent the
extra time oohing and aahing over the hundreds of soaring pelicans, black
and white against the clear blue sky. Only banded 8 birds, for our slowest
day of the season:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3
Spotted Towhee 1
Savannah Sparrow 1 (Our third this year, all of them hatch year birds.
Bringing the total in 31 years to four; the other was caught in 1991.)
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 2
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 1

This is our last weekend of the season! Weather report says it will be
cold, but if it is like today it will be quite pleasant in the sun. We
plan to open at 7:40 and have birds back at the station by about 8:30.
Closing at 11:40.

Visitors are welcome at our banding stations. Registration is required for
groups. For more information and hours of operation, visit

Subject: [cobirds] Bluebirds - Franktown, Douglas
We drove along Castlewood Canyon Road at 10:45 this morning and saw at least 50 bluebirds, probably more. Spectacular. Two-thirds Western, one-third Mountain, plus 2 Eastern. When we returned at 12:45, we saw one -- only one. We think that they headed south towards the Winkler Ranch & Pueblo.

Subject: [cobirds] San Luis Valley Cranes
Pretty good numbers of Sandhill Cranes around the Valley. But they are
relatively dispersed. You can find some at the Monte Vista Refuge (Rio
Grande Cty) and today there were about 500 at the turnouts. Another place
to find them is on the Stanley Road (From Jnctn of Hwy 160 and Countyline
road between Alamosa and MV, go north about 2 miles) (Alamosa County).
Watch on the right for the Stanley road and you should see plenty of birds
along the way travelling the Stanley Road to Hwy 17.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Grand Valley Audubon Society, 10/10/19
A cold morning and high winds meant that we opened nets late and closed
early. This resulted in low bird numbers for the day - just 5 birds of 4
species. This included two Wilson's Warblers, which we haven't seen here
since the 27th of September. Unfortunately tomorrow seems like it will be
even colder, so I'm not expecting large bird numbers for the last day of
the season either.

Wilson's Warbler 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 1
Song Sparrow 1

Visitors are welcome at the banding station - tomorrow it will be cold
enough that I don't expect to open nets before 9:00. Closing should be
around 11:30, depending on weather. School groups arrive at around 9:30,
so if you would like to visit it's best to arrive before then!

eBird reports of Mute Swan are prolific in the public database for the
states of Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, and
Utah. In other words, we in Colorado are surrounded by Mute Swans. And Mute
Swans are widely indicated in the public database for Colorado. Here is a
map showing some eBird records of Mute Swans from Larimer, Weld, Adams, and
Arapahoe counties:

[image: Mute Swans do in fact count in Colorado.png]

By far the most valuable function of eBird is that it has the potential to
powerfully and accurately document changing bird populations in a changing
environment. But that power and accuracy is critically dependent on
best-practices reporting by eBirders. So be sure to always submit complete
checklists, giving particular care to the matter of documenting dynamic
populations like those of the Mute Swan.

A BIG banding day before the storm that I still can't accept is coming! We
banded 78 new birds, plus caught 23 from prior days, for a total of 101
individuals. Here's the breakdown of the 78 new birds:

Hammond's Flycatcher 1
Black-capped Chickadee 1
White-breasted Nuthatch 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 6
Hermit Thrush 2
Orange-crowned Warbler 6
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Myrtle 4
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 12
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Unidentified 1
Common Yellowthroat 1
Spotted Towhee 2
Chipping Sparrow 2
Song Sparrow 5
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 2
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 12
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 18
Dark-eyed Junco, Unidentified 1
American Goldfinch 1

It is highly likely we will be closed tomorrow (Thursday)! Opening Friday
will depend on weather; hopefully by mid-morning. Then hoping for a good
final weekend of fall banding!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Grand Valley Audubon Society, 10/9/19
Today brought us slightly higher diversity, with 16 new birds and 3
recaptures of 8 species. This finally brought our season's new bird total
for GVAS above 200 birds! Unfortunately this number may not get much
higher, as the weather looks iffy for the next two days and we will
probably be opening nets much later than normal.

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Mountain Chickadee 1 (FOS)
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 8 new 2 recapture
White-crowned Sparrow (Mountain) 1
Song Sparrow 3
Spotted Towhee 1
Western Scrub-jay 1
Black-capped Chickadee 1 recapture

Visitors are welcome at the banding station - we start getting birds at
around 7:45 and close around 11:30, weather permitting. Banding goes until
this Friday the 11th. Cold weather and possible snow on Thurs/Fri may
interfere with banding on those days, and it is likely that I will open
nets late on both days (especially Friday). School groups arrive at around
9:30, so if you would like to visit it's best to arrive before then!

Subject: [cobirds] Band-tailed Pigeon Larkspur (Douglas CO)
There is currently a Band-tailed Pigeon just north of Larkspur in Douglas County (10/9 3:40 pm). If you’re interested:
After exiting I-25 southbound at the Larkspur exit, there’s a large graded dirt lot on your left. Just past it, turn left on Upper Lake Gulch Road and the bird is on the wire immediately south of the dirt lot. Go past it and park down by the railroad tracks.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Rogers Grove Park, Longmont (Boulder Co.) 10/8/19
Yesterday was our final day of banding for the season out at Rogers Grove
Park in Longmont. We caught and banded just 3 birds for the day, as it
remained fairly quiet in the area. flocks of Oregon Juncos have shown up,
but stayed away from our nets. Here are our totals for the day.

Ruby-crowned Kinglet - 1
Orange-crowned Warbler - 1 (orestera spp.)
Hermit Thrush - 1

We are officially cancelling banding on Thursday, Oct 10th due to the
approach of our first winter storm! Even if it doesn't amount to much snow
it will be too cold to band birds. It may still be a very productive day
for birding though so get out there if you can!

Subject: [cobirds] Yellow-bellied Sapsucker/Larimer
Hi I had a probable Yellow-bellied Sapsucker this am at McMurry Natural
Area in Fort Collins. I had good looks but alas this individual seems like
a hatch year bird and provides some challenges. This individual had a lot
of brown buff overall no visible red on crown and was mottled. The face
seemed lighter and the supercilium seemed to be broad near eye. I have a
picture on my ebird list here https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S60481288

The beast was about 20 feet from the parking lot going west in a
cottonwood, working the mid-upper portion.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirds] Lesser, goldfinch,Arapaho county
I have been enjoying lesser goldfinch coming to my feeder, they rarely used my feeders in the past. They tend to hang out in my cosmos on my patio.

Yesterday I saw one of them exhibiting begging behavior and , although I know they nest late in the season, I was so surprised to see this behavior this late. Is this common for them to be this late?

Thanks, Deb Carstensen, Arapaho county

Subject: [cobirds] Interesting Third Hand Common Poorwill Report - Arapahoe
Through the Nextdoor app, I learned that a Common Poorwill appeared to be
enjoying some sun (or a warm engine), out in the open in a suburban parking
lot, on the hood of a dark colored car at the Streets of Southglenn mall in
Centennial (Arapahoe County, University & Arapahoe cross streets). A photo
of the bird, which eventually flew away (and, so, perhaps wasn't either ill
or injured), was shared. The photo was taken from *inside* the car, which
means the driver was able to approach and enter her car before the bird
flew off.

Fall poorwill can be weirdly tolerant of people? I remember one at
Cheesman, sleeping next to a beer bottle, that hardly seemed to notice
photographers, passerby, and dogs for days.

We just had an immature male broad-tailed at our feeder at 4:50 pm. The
last one we saw before this was two days ago. We will be leaving the
feeder out for a couple more weeks probably, bringing it in only when it's
freezing. Hurry Spring! : )

A great fall day, which we shared with the Tuesday Birders! We banded 66
new birds, with lots of the usual late fall species plus a rarity and a
super-rarity - A White-throated Sparrow and (ta-dah!) a PROTHONOTARY
WARBLER (the 3rd in 31 years). Here's the breakdown:

Dusky Flycatcher 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 7
Hermit Thrush 3
Prothonotary Warbler 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 12
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Myrtle 4
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 8
Spotted Towhee 2
Chipping Sparrow 2
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 2
White-throated Sparrow 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 5
Dark-eyed Junco, Slate-colored 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 6
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 10

Tomorrow, the high-tech folks from DMNS will be out producing Scientists in
Action - Garth Spellman and I will be talking about bird banding and
conservation directly to over 1200 students in schools throughout Colorado
(plus Texas, Indiana, Michigan and Alaska!)

This is our last week, plus a storm is forecast for Thursday and very cold
weather for Friday. The earliest we will open nets is 7:40. We are closing
nets most days at 11:40. We will try to keep you posted about changes due
to weather!

Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Grand Valley Audubon Society, 10/7/19
Today was slower than normal, with a cold morning and steady winds
hampering our banding efforts. Sparrows once again dominated, making up 8
out of the 11 birds captured.

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 4 new 2 recapture
White-crowned Sparrow (Mountain) 2
Spotted Towhee 1
Juniper Titmouse 1 recapture

Visitors are welcome at the banding station - we start getting birds at
around 7:45 and close around 11:30, weather permitting. Banding goes until
this friday the 11th. A front that is expected to move through on
Wed/Thurs may interfere with banding on those days. School groups arrive
at around 9:30, so if you would like to visit it's best to arrive before
then!

Subject: [cobirds] Pipit Hill (Yuma) 10/7--Sprague's Pipit
Hi Everyone,



I spent this morning 10/7 in Yuma County at the Hutton Easement of South
Republican SWA, up on what is known as Pipit Hill, a mile in from YCR LL.5.
No wind to speak of, and good birds. I counted three Sprague's Pipits, about
15 Chestnut-collared Longspurs, a few meadowlarks, a flock of Brewer's
Blackbirds going over, a smattering of Horned Larks, a group of Killdeer up
by the windmill, and a Prairie Falcon. The pipits were flighty, but called a
lot. I had numerous good flight views, including the very white tail. I had
one on the ground, but I think we saw each other at about the same time. On
the way home, I stopped at Stalker Lake, not much going on there. I stopped
at Riverside Park in Ft Morgan; I heard a Green-tailed Towhee near the
river.

Subject: [cobirds] Timnath Reservoir on 10/7 (Larimer)
I had the following of interest in the northeast corner of Timnath Reservoir today, as viewed from the public "swim beach" that has cement path and the covered swing:

Black-bellied Plover (1)
Semipalmated Plover (1)
Lots of Least and Baird's Sandpipers
Semipalmated Sandpiper (at least 1 juvenile)
Dunlin (1)
Wilson's Snipe (4)
[Did not see Pectoral Sandpiper mentioned by others but I certainly could have missed it].

A White-throated Sparrow (white-striped adult) was in the cattails along the drainage east of the cement path/swing eating kochia and knapweed seeds. It was giving the "chink" call note, somewhat similar to, but fuller/deeper than, that of Swamp Sparrow (check iBird Pro app for comparison).

Subject: [cobirds] Re: Urban shorebirds, Denver County
We hit Chatfield yesterday afternoon just to look for shorebirds as well,
with almost the same results. We did have 5 winter-plumage Avocets on the
sand spit by the old marina, among the pelicans. Also two Forster's Terns
there. Otherwise, as you said, both there and at the inlet by the Heron
Overlook, it was nothing but Pelicans and Killdeer, a Herring Gull, several
Ring-billed, and a smattering of Cormorant.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Reporting Muscovy Duck to eBird.
Thanks, SeEtta. Always nice to hear from you.
The information you sent is consistent with my Sunday note.
One needs to know where one is standing to use the correct name for Muscovy
Duck on a checklist.

Most in Texas are domestic and live outside that short segment of the Rio
Grande Valley, so are described as:
Muscovy Duck (Domestic type) (*Cairina moschata* (Domestic type))

As you described, "wild" Muscovy Ducks occur upstream from Roma, Texas
(easiest to see near Salineño, below Falcon Dam) and fly back and forth
across the river. I consider them part of the "Central and South American
(except for Patagonia)" population I mentioned, with the name:
"Muscovy Duck (*Cairina moschata*)".

Please pass the orange sauce.

Joe Roller, Denver

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Reporting Muscovy Duck to eBird.
I have spent a considerable amount of time in So Texas in recent years and
most Muscovies are considered domestic. The only Muscovies considered wild
(not domestic) are those seen along the Rio Grande River upriver from
Roma,Tx.

These screenshots are from a recent Rio Grande Birding group discussion
(Mary Gustafson is the ebird person and considered one the RGV bird experts
and Justin LeClaire is a biologist in and RGV bird expert):

Subject: [cobirds] Urban shorebirds, Denver County


Friday afternoon I lugged my heavy camera and bins to Chatfield State
Park’s S. Platte River inlet, Marina sandspit, and Plum Creek inlet. Long
treks, very natural habitat, but just a few Killdeer at each place.


This afternoon Barb and I were strolling along the S. Platte River just
south of the Cherry Creek Confluence, halfway between the aquarium and REI.
No camera, no bins. City habitat. There were shorebirds on gravel islands
in the South Platte, and I don’t think they were all Killdeer.

I hope these shorebirds stick around to be identified by peep-loving Denver
birders.



Good birding,

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Barr Lake, 10/6/19
Got a break from the wind today and had a typical, nice fall day - Started
with Orange-crowned Warblers and Ruby-crowned Kinglets, then Juncos with a
few other Sparrows thrown in. Highlights of the day were 2 young Red-naped
Sapsuckers; as Susan noted in an earlier post, these are rare at the
station - we've only had 5 total in the prior 30 years, and the most recent
was in 2012. Here's a breakdown of the 44 new birds caught today:

Red-naped Sapsucker 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 6
Hermit Thrush 2
Orange-crowned Warbler 10
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 5
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Myrtle 1
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 3
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 4
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 7
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 3

Remember we are closed tomorrow, Monday! We will then be open
Tuesday-Sunday for one more week, weather permitting! We are now opening
nets at 7:40 and should have birds back at the station by 8:20. School
groups arrive most weekdays at about 9:30. The best time to visit (fewest
people, most birds) is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

Okay, I know, no rarities, but hooded mergansers are one of my absolute
favorite Colorado species, and I was thrilled to see two pairs this morning
(first-of-season) at around 8 a.m. while cycling, both in Arapahoe County.
The first were about 1/3 mile north of Belleview, and the second 1/4 mile
south of Oxford. As I continued north, I came across three wild turkeys
just north of the National Guard post, on the west side of Riverside
Cemetery, just north of Franklin St (Denver County). This was about 9:00
a.m. Finally, around 10 a.m., two bald eagles circling just south of E
88th Ave. (Adams County).

It was a lovely ride!

Subject: [cobirds] Colorado Christmas Bird Count Dates for Dec 14, 2019-Jan 5, 2020
Compilers of Colorado Christmas Bird Counts are now able to choose their
date for their CBC on the CBC Website. I see that the Barr Lake CBC is
scheduled for Sunday, 29 December 2019. The first date for counts this
year, is on Saturday, 14 December 2019, which I expect a lot of counts will
be going on throughout the state that day and following day 15 December
2019. The last day for a count is Sunday, 5 January 2020. Luckily there
are other weekends that counts can be held this year, on 21-22 December,
28-29 December, and 4-5 January, that don't interfere with holidays. A few
counts are during the week, and a few are always on Jan 1st. Colorado
usually has over 40 Christmas Bird Counts around the state each winter.
Hopefully it will be successful Colorado Christmas Bird Count season, and
decent weather. If compilers want me to enter the date for your count onto
the CBC Website, just let me know. I'll try to post a list of CBC Dates
around Nov 1st, and Dec 1st, so everyone can plan their Christmas Bird
Count schedule. Some people like to go on a lot of them, so advance
planning and knowing when the dates are, helps people choose count they
want to help with.

From: Joe Roller <jroller9...>
Subject: [cobirds] Reporting Muscovy Duck to eBird.
Instead of succumbing to the usual Sunday morning ennui and hunger pangs, I
explored the topic of reporting "Muscovy Duck" on eBird checklists.

* See below for links to recipes.

** There is a whole page of information in the eBird Help section about all
the ins and outs of the three ways to report MUDU on an eBird checklist.

To boil it down (see below for links to recipes*), ebird distinguishes
among three categories (aka "flavors") of "Muscovy Duck".

1) Muscovy Ducks happily inhabit Central and South America. "Happily", that
is, except for the frightened and thus secretive ones hunted for sport
and/or food.**
ebird wants those reported as:
"Muscovy Duck (*Cairina moschata*)".
So if you are birding in Costa Rica where Muscovy Ducks "belong", that is
the way to report them and thereby add them to your Costa Rica list. None
in this "wild" category can be seen in Colorado and if reported to eBird,
will not appear on your Colorado eBird list.

2) In a very few parts of the world, eg, South Florida (and Portugal of all
places), Muscovy Ducks have well-established, stable, breeding populations
and are properly reported as:
Muscovy Duck (Established Feral) (*Cairina moschata* (Established Feral))
(Notice the sweet use of the double end parentheses marks). (Or sweet and
sour, I suppose).
In those widely separated locales, Muscovy Duck is "countable" on your
Florida or Portuguese list.

3) Finally the Muscovy Ducks that we see in Colorado are properly reported
as:
Muscovy Duck (Domestic type) (*Cairina moschata* (Domestic type))
These ducks may have been present at a location for many years, but they
are *not* considered "established" in the ornithological sense of the word
- "many generations of a stable or growing population of breeding birds,
free of re-introductions". They will not appear on your eBird checklist.

So, yes, enjoy gazing at these embarrassed, red-faced, plump waterfowl, and
recognize that
they belong in the same category as Colorado's Mandarin Ducks, Black Swans
and Mute Swans.


This is a good time to set your oven to 400 degrees F.

From: Joey Kellner <vireo1...>
Subject: [cobirds] Invitation: Chatfield BIG SIT!
Hello COBIRDERS!

Looking for something to do a week from today...Sunday? How about some
leisure birding at a Big Sit?

What is a "Big Sit" you ask?

Well a Big Sit is similar to the birding event called a "Big Day", in both
events participants try to count as many species as possible, the difference
is that in a Big Day you travel all over a geographical area whereas during
a Big Sit you sit (or stand) in one location (a 17-foot diameter "circle")
and count as many species seen or heard as possible in the course of the
day.
This is a worldwide event and as of this posting there are already over
100 Big Sit "circles" registered for this year's event!

The Denver Field Ornithologists and Colorado Parks & Wildlife will once
again
sponsor and I will host "The Big Sit!" at Chatfield State Park next Sunday,
October 13th. This will be the 16th year for this fun and frivolous event.
It
is open to the public and EVERYONE is welcome! It will be held from dawn to

dusk, come for an hour or stay all day, whatever works for your schedule.
In addition to a day list, we will perform hourly counts so that every hour
there
are "new" birds to be added to the hour's count.

"The Big Sit!" at Chatfield will be located at the Heronry Overlook on the
east side of the reservoir. A park map is at the entrance stations. The
Park is
fully open (after all the construction), come see the changes and help find
a few
birds!

Bring your own chair or use the bench seating provided by the
heronry overlook deck. Bring binoculars, spotting scope (if you have),
food, water, treats to share or whatever you need to spend time birding!
Colorado Parks & Wildlife will be providing a canopy for shade from the sun,

Subject: [cobirds] White-throated Swifts dance at evening in JeffCo - DFO trip added 10/7
Some know of the cliff on the Lyons Formation hogback overlooking Deer
Creek in JeffCo where *White-throated Swifts* nest. They nest in the cliff
in small numbers of less than 10 pairs, but migrants visit the same cliff
in larger numbers and roost in its large crack and use smaller spots there,
too. Numbers are greatest in the late summer and early fall. The roosting
action has been going on for weeks, but soon will end. Here is my checklist
from Friday evening, presenting some of the detail when some 445
White-throated Swifts were at the roost.
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S60352815
Forgive my poor digiscoped images but they give a taste. A most lovely
element is the swift shadows playing against the cliff, cast by end of the
day sun as the birds fly at the roost.

I have added a *DFO field trip* for a small group to join me for the
evening on *Monday Oct 7*. There is no guarantee they will still be there,
as they will depart soon, but there is a good chance, I think. Details and
registration are here:

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Barr Lake, 10/5/19
Once again, it was very windy, especially early. We banded only 15 new
birds plus one return from last year:

Cassin's Vireo 1 (the cool bird of the morning)
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 7
Song Sparrow 1 return, banded 2018
Lincoln's Sparrow 2
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 2
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 2
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 1

We also caught 5 other species that were birds banded earlier in the season
to give us 11 species to show off to today's many visitors, including an
enthusiastic group from the Front Range Birding Company.

We are now opening nets at 7:40 and should have birds back at the station
by 8:20. We are closing nets most days at 11:40. We are open 6 days per
week, Tuesday-Sunday, through October 13. All of this is weather
permitting! School groups arrive most weekdays at about 9:30. The best time
to visit (fewest people, most birds) is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

From: Robert Snowden <rsnowden0524...>
Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 10/4/19
Yesterday was the last day of the fall banding season at Chico Basin Ranch.
Not surprisingly, the bird volume was pretty low, as it had been for the
previous few days. But after a chilly first couple hours, the weather was
at least very pleasant to finish things off.

Despite the low number of captures, there were some charismatic birds that
a visiting group of elementary students got to enjoy: a young male
Sharp-shinned Hawk, and an intergrade Northern Flicker which had been
eluding us all season! The flicker appeared mostly Red-shafted, but a few
red feathers in its nape indicated some Yellow-shafted lineage.

The morning's totals were 14 newly-banded birds, 5 recaptures, and 8
species. A summary:

Gray Catbird 2
Hermit Thrush 5 + 3 recaptures
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 2 + 1 recapture
Wilson's Warbler 1 + 1 recapture
Vesper Sparrow 1
Sharp-shinned Hawk 1
Northern Flicker, intergrade 1 (FOS)

And that's a wrap for the fall. Through 29 days of banding we ended up with
742 banded birds, 44 recaptures, and 52 species. That number of banded
birds is markedly lower than any season in the previous decade, and nearly
400 fewer birds than last years' effort. That's not altogether surprising
given the general reports of a slow and/or late migration along the Front
Range, and we were also hindered but some frequent warm and windy mornings.
Also of note were the lack of recaptured birds from previous seasons.

Nevertheless, the data we got will still be very valuable for the Bird
Conservancy of the Rockies' monitoring and conservation efforts going
forward, and there were certainly many highlights from the last few weeks!
Thanks to all those who came out to observe this season, and of course for
the volunteers that helped with our banding efforts.

Subject: [cobirds] Timnath Reservoir shorebirds (including Dunlin), Larimer County
The water level at Timnath Reservoir (southeast Larimer County) is as low as ever, mudflats are extensive, and shorebirding should be fabulous this weekend.

Shorebird species reported there on eBird in the last few days include:
American Avocet
Killdeer
Semipalmated Plover
Black-bellied Plover
Wilson’s Phalarope
Lesser Yellowlegs
Spotted Sandpiper
Pectoral Sandpiper
Bairds Sandpiper
Semipalmated Sandpiper
Least Sandpiper
Dunlin (present at dusk today)
Stilt Sandpiper
Long-billed Dowitcher
Wilson’s Snipe

The picnic area/boat ramp on the south side (entrance road off CR 40) is open to birders (thanks to an arrangement negotiated by Fort Collins Audubon Society.) However, the east mudflats are best approached from County Line Rd (aka Weld CR13) and from the Wild Wings neighborhood.

Today was a relatively uneventful day, with 12 new birds and 4 recaptures,
bringing our total of birds banded to 177. One of the birds that I banded
on the very first day at GVAS, a Juniper Titmouse, showed up again - it's
nice to see some resident birds sometimes!

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1 new 1 recapture
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 6 new 1 recapture
White-crowned Sparrow (Mountain) 4
Song Sparrow 1
Bewick's Wren 1 recapture
Juniper Titmouse 1 recapture

Hopefully next week's weather brings more birds! We are open at Connected
Lakes State Park M-F until October 11th. We get birds starting at around
7:45 and close nets around 11:30, depending on weather. Feel free to stop
by - the earlier you come, the more likely you are to see birds! School
groups tend to arrive between 9:30 to 10:00, so I also recommend that
visitors come before then.

I took the liberty of sending the pics to Alvaro Jaramillo (much experience with seed-finches) and he says:

Impossible to know (species) without a male and out of range I would say. Most likely a Lesser/Chestnut-bellied, as these are common and widespread. They are also traded heavily in Argentina from what I recall, so are likely in the international market

Highly unusual. Not sure why anyone would keep one as a pet, but also hard to see it flying up from South America. Similar species in Mexico are a richer brown color, so I’m leaning Large-billed Seed-Finch.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 10/3/19
We had a little more activity on the penultimate day of the fall season at
Chico Basin, though once again we had to deal with some suboptimal weather.
The morning started relatively busy before an steady south breeze slowed
things down and resulted in early closures for our most productive nets. We
finished with 22 newly-banded birds and 3 recaptures, but not much variety,
as only 4 species were caught. As with some recent days, there was pretty
good thrush and kinglet representation.

Our summary:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 7
Wilson's Warbler 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon/intergrade 4
Hermit Thrush 9 + 3 recaptures.

Visitors are welcome at our banding stations. Registration is required for
groups. For more information and hours of operation, visit
birdconservancy.org/birdbanding.

Tomorrow (Friday) will be the final day of the season. We'll be opening
nets at 7:00 AM and closing at noon, weather permitting. Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Leucistic Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
Flag Ranch, Lafayette, CO 9 AM Oct 3

Paula Hansley and I observed a stunningly beautiful small bird with a bright white head along the river bank about a quarter mile south of the parking lot. Our best guess is that it was a Leucitic Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. It was in a mixed flock of Kinglets, Bushtits, a OC Warbler and a typical BG Gnatcatcher.



I don’t remember ever seeing a leucitic bird before and this is the second one for me in a couple of weeks. We observed a leucistic Brewer’s Blackbird at the Taylor Park Marina at the Taylor Park Reservoir just over a week ago.



Thanks to Eileen Rutherford for the Blackbird photo.

Subject: [cobirds] Green-tailed Towhee & C. Nighthawk - Arapahoe
Two of my favorite birds remained in Centennial, at least through today. A
Green-tailed Towhee has been in my yard for a week or so. A Common
Nighthawk, meanwhile, headed south over E. Panama Dr / Streets of
Southglenn near Arapahoe & University around dusk. It was low and seemed to
come from somewhere local, rather than further north, but I might be
misjudging that. This morning, in the same general area as the nighthawk,
was a lone Turkey Vulture, another of my favorites.

The nighthawk sighting was especially well-timed (for me...can't say for
the bird). As I casually birded deKoevend Park, I lamented that we so
rarely know when our final, fall sightings of our favored birds will be.
Then I recalled, several years ago, a late nighthawk sighting (October 10)
that I had at the park, and how it was late enough that I knew that it
would be goodbye for a time. Minutes later, the nighthawk. Late enough,
once more, that I suspect that's it. I wished the bird well and lost it in
the lights of traffic.

We were rained out on Tuesday so today was our only day of banding at
Rogers Grove Park this week. It remains fairly quiet here, with just 6
birds banded for the day, and no recaptures. The Wilson's Warblers seem to
have moved on, replaced by some Yellow-rumped Warblers (though not in the
nets yet). Our highlight for the day was a 'Eastern' Downy Woodpecker of
the *medianus* subspecies, with major white spotting on the wing coverts.
Here are the totals for the day:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet - 1
Orange-crowned Warbler - 3
Hermit Thrush - 1
'Eastern' Downy Woodpecker - 1

Next week will be our final week of banding at Rogers Grove Park. This
station runs on Tues/Thurs only. We'll be opening nets around 7:10 and
continuing for 5 hours, weather permitting. Feel free to stop by and visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Grand Valley Audubon Society, 10/3/19
Today was another breezy day, and we ended up with 11 new birds and 5
recaptures. Fortunately this included two new species - a Song Sparrow,
which I have been expecting to catch for a while, and a Gambel's Quail
(picture included), which was a welcome surprise. Quail-sized birds do not
usually get caught in our nets (they tend to bounce out), so being able to
have this bird in the hand is a treat. Unfortunately the quail is not
included in our official banding totals, as I do not have a permit to band
game birds.

White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 6 new, 4 recaptures
White-crowned Sparrow (Mountain) 3
Song Sparrow 1 (FOS)
Spotted Towhee 1
Bewick's Wren 1 recapture
Gambel's Quail (unbanded)

We are banding every weekday at Connected Lakes State Park, and visitors
are welcome! It is advisable to visit before 9:30, since that is when
school groups tend to arrive.

Today we got done in by wind (which wasn't even in the weather report).
We opened a few nets for 1 1/2 hours, banded 1 House Wren, 1 Hermit
Thrush, 2 Orange-crowned Warblers and 1 White-crowned Sparrow, and then
threw in the towel for the morning. Looking forward to better weather
tomorrow.

We are now opening nets at 7:40 and should have birds back at the station
by 8:20. We are closing nets most days at 11:40. We are open 6 days per
week, Tuesday-Sunday, through October 13. All of this is weather
permitting! School groups arrive most weekdays at about 9:30. The best time
to visit (fewest people, most birds) is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Just a friendly reminder about shore access at Barr Lake: birders can only
access the shore *north* of the bird banding station. South of the banding
station is considered the "Wildlife Refuge" and you must stay on marked
trails. While they don't seem to enforce this much, I've confirmed with
several of the Park Rangers and this is also depicted on the park maps.

CObirders,
This little bird was so cute! It was in a small flock of common bushtits, ruby-crowned kinglets, and blue-gray gnatcatchers. Images are posted on the CFO Facebook page.

Location: on edge of large prairie dog town accessed from County Line Rd. Park at Flagg Ranch parking lot between Baseline and South Boulder Roads. Cross Coal Creek and follow the trail about 1/8 mile to south, past where oil maintenance workers are working and then head west over to the bank of Coal Creek. The flock was in a willow tree down in the deeply incised streambed.

Because one can walk out on the sand towards the water's edge, makes it very easy for close viewing of the birds.

Just in the southeast section:
3 American Golden-Plovers, (at least one was a Jv.)
50+ Killdeer
2 Marbled Godwits
3 Jv. Sanderlings
20 Baird’s Sandpipers
3-4 Pectorial Sandpipers
1 Least Sandpiper
20+ Forster’s Gulls

1000’s of Barn Swallows and vast numbers of other regularly occurring waterbirds were present
If there was more time I’d visit Meredith at Conservancy Banding station. It would have been fun to see the Philadelphia Vireo

no cranes
no White-throated Sparrow

Gate out by CR77 still open, host still on duty, not sure how long this will be the case. Only one camper, I suppose due to recent rain. Very pleasant out there, no TV, felt good to wear a jacket.

Total of 40 species

On the way home I stopped at Crom Lake on Weld CR31 w of Pierce and it is full, no shorebirds, lots of Barn Swallows over the water (100+), geese beginning to build, common ducks, mink crossed the road.

Hey, all.

I stopped off at a few spots in the lowlands of eastern Boulder County
yesterday, Wed., Oct. 2, with these results:

Baseline Reservoir. With the drizzle finally coming to an end, a quick
count of 196 *barn swallows* hawking for insects low over the water's
surface. Surely many more. Also, 17 widely scattered *pied-billed grebes,*
a little fallout.

Sombrero Marsh. 2 handsome *clay-colored sparrows,* 1 *Lincoln sparrow.*
Great shorebird habitat there, but only *killdeer* that I could detect.

Legion Park overlook. Decent passerine flight underway, with 1 *Say phoebe,*
40+ *American robins,* 1 *American pipit,* 5 *chipping sparrows,* 2 *Gambel
white-crowned sparrows,* 2 *vesper sparrows,* and 5 *Audubon warblers*, all
in and around the parking area.

Prince Lake No. 2. An early *cackling goose* and 2 tardy *Foster terns.*
Good shorebird habitat here, but full of gulls, including 2 *California
gulls.* Also 2 *snowy egrets.*

Waneka Lake. This thing:

It's that time of year again!

Today was a little slow but still full of White-crowned Sparrows, with 12
birds and one recapture (10 of which were sparrows). We did still get one
new species for the season, a Virginia's Warbler.

Virginia's Warbler 1 (FOS)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
White-crowned Sparrow (Mountain) 4
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 5

We are open to the public every day starting at around 7:30 - be sure to
arrive early if you want to see birds! We have been closing at 11:30ish due
to winds. School groups tend to arrive between 9:30 and 10:00.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Barr Lake, 10/2/19
An unconventional but ultimately VERY nice banding day! We opened 2 hours
late because of drizzle and cold. Activity was slow at first under cloudy
skies; the only "excitement" came when a small herd of marauding deer ran
through the front section of the station, taking out three nets. As the
sun poked through the clouds, flocks started moving around - Yellow-rumpeds
in one net, Kinglets in another, sometimes with Orange-crowneds mixed in.
Along the way, we caught three rare-ish species - our second Golden-crowned
Kinglet of the season, a Chestnut-sided Warbler, and our favorite of the
day, a Philadelphia Vireo. We ended the day with 50 new birds banded (plus
16 recaps from earlier in the season):

Downy Woodpecker 1
Hammond's Flycatcher 1
Cordilleran Flycatcher 1
Philadelphia Vireo 1
Golden-crowned Kinglet 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 7
Hermit Thrush 2
Orange-crowned Warbler 10
Chestnut-sided Warbler 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 18
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Myrtle 3
Wilson's Warbler 1
Song Sparrow 2
Lincoln's Sparrow 1

We are now opening nets at 7:40 and should have birds back at the station
by 8:20. We are closing nets most days at 11:40. We are open 6 days per
week, Tuesday-Sunday, through October 13. All of this is weather
permitting! School groups arrive most weekdays at about 9:30. The best time
to visit (fewest people, most birds) is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 10/2/19
We had one of our slowest days of the season at Chico today. With low
clouds and cool, damp conditions to start, things were pretty quiet. The
sun burned off the clouds for the last hour or so, and I thought that would
bring more birds, but that was not to be. Just not much activity near the
nets today.

We ended up banding 8 birds of 8 species:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Wilson's Warbler 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Chipping Sparrow 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon/intergrade 1
Song Sparrow 1
Hermit Thrush 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1

We band 6 days a week at Chico Basin, closed Sundays. Visitors are welcome
at our banding stations. Registration is required for groups. For more
information and hours of operation, visit birdconservancy.org/birdbanding.

For the remainder of the week, we'll be opening nets at 7:00 AM and closing
at noon, weather permitting. Come visit!

Cross the creek to the small clearing on the north side of the creek. Plop down and be patient. The bird seems to respond to chipping notes. It was seen on the south bank of the creek quietly foraging close to the ground. It makes a chip or two at long intervals.

The male Hooded Warbler continues Wednesday morning at Lee Gulch west of Mineral.
Refound @ 9:40 a.m. and just had good looks at it on NORTH side of creek. It was working the trees and thick creek understory at or below eye level about 75 yards east (upstream) of the clearing described by Scott S. a few days ago. Park on Kettle Avenue west of Mineral and walk down to narrow creek crossing (large rocks) across from clearing on south side of gulch to access north side.

Although things picked up a bit today with 22 new birds and 4 recaptures,
diversity was low with only Orange-crowned Warblers, White-crowned
Sparrows, and a single Green-tailed Towhee showing up in the nets.
White-crowned Sparrows were the most abundant, with 22 out of 26 birds
being either Gambel's or Mountain White-crowned Sparrows.

Orange-crowned Warbler 3
Gambel's White-crowned Sparrow 14 (plus three that were banded in a
previous season)
Mountain White-crowned Sparrow 4
Green-tailed Towhee 1 (FOS)

Please feel free to stop by! We open our nets every weekday from about 7:30

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Barr Lake, 10/1/19
Most of us in the Denver Metro Area woke up to drizzle or rain this
morning, and it seemed a little crazy to the members of the Tuesday crew as
we drove out to the station this morning. But, low and behold, Barr Lake
State Park was cloudy and chilly but dry and most of the nets were
sheltered from the wind. So we opened most of the station and got in about
three hours of banding before it got too cold. Highlight of the day was a
mixed flock that included 6 Black-capped Chickadees, 3 of which had been
banded in prior seasons (2018, 2017, and - drum roll - 2013) and were
recaught for the first time ever today. We also had lots of nice intrepid
human visitors who braved the elements to enjoy the birds with us. 30 new
plus the 3 returns for a total of 33 new birds today:

Black-capped Chickadee 1 new, 3 returns (1 each from 2018, 2017 and 2013)
House Wren 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 5
Hermit Thrush 2
Gray Catbird 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 10
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 2
Wilson's Warbler 2
Green-tailed Towhee 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Mountain 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 2
Lesser Goldfinch 1 (FOS)

We are now opening nets at 7:40 and should have birds back at the station
by 8:20. We are closing nets most days at 11:40. We are open 6 days per

Subject: [cobirds] white egrets
Folks,


Differentiating juvenile little blue heron from snowy egret in fall is fraught with peril. I mean, you could get it wrong and then what? I have been looking at Colorado's smallish, white egrets in fall and have noticed something. Birds being reported as juvi little blues show bill and lore characteristics of juvi little blue herons. When I look at SIbley's depiction of bill and lores of juvi little blue heron vs. snowy egret, I am not confident I could differentiate them based on those features. But observing birds and photos of birds reported as juvi little blue heron here in Colorado, I have noticed something... leg color.


Adult snowy egrets have dark (black) legs and yellow feet. Adult little blue herons have dull greenish-yellow legs and feet. Juvenile snowy egrets show a dark (black) front of legs and yellowish to greenish-yellow back of legs, basically two-tone. Juvi little blue heron legs are the same color as adult birds uniform, dull greenish-yellow.


All of this fall's reports of juvi little blue herons I have observed, either in person or from photos have bi-colored legs. The front of the leg is dark, the back of the leg is yellow or pale. I am no expert in identifying juvi little blue heron, but I have scrutinized photos of these birds from Texas and they all seem to have uniform (front to back) dull yellow-green leg color.


When observing these white egret-herons, make note of leg color, front and back. I THINK this could be helpful in identifying the correct species.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 10/1/19
Happy October! I was much more of a fan of today's weather than I was of
the last few days', with overcast skies and seasonably mild temps. Too bad
it wasn't the most ideal for getting a high volume of migrant, and for the
3rd straight banding day we had under 20 new captures: 15 birds of 11
species, to be precise. We also had the most recaptures of any day by far
this season, with 8 birds, all banded this season. We're still waiting on
recaptures from previous years this season.

Despite the low volume, there was still a good variety of birds, both in
and around the nets. We were especially pleased by a lovely male *Black-and-white
Warbler *in our first net on our first net run! That would be just the 8th
fall record for this species, and first since 2015. There was also good
vireo diversity (both *Cassin's *and *Plumbeous*).

As far as our common small migrants go, Wilson's Warblers have pretty much
slowed to a trickle and now seem to be handily outnumbered by Ruby-crowned
Kinglets at the banding site.

Today's summary:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3 + 3 recaptures
Wilson's Warbler 1 + 1 recapture
Black-and-white Warbler 1 (FOS)
Pink-sided Junco 1
Plumbeous Vireo 1
Cassin's Vireo 1
Hermit Thrush 2 + 2 recaptures
Gray Catbird 2 + 1 recapture
Spotted Towhee 1
Green-tailed Towhee 1
Blue Jay 1
Brown Thrasher 1 recapture

We band 6 days a week at Chico Basin, closed Sundays. Visitors are welcome
at our banding stations. Registration is required for groups. For more
information and hours of operation, visit birdconservancy.org/birdbanding.

For the remainder of the week, we'll be opening nets at 7:00 AM and closing
at noon, weather permitting. Come visit!

In response to Gary Lefko's post about A&B Res #1 on Weld CR124 west of CR77, Nina Routh, Mike Serruto and I visited this res on 9/28 and basically found the same set of birds. We also had a flyover Pine Siskin, both Red-winged and Yellow-headed Blackbirds, a Blue-winged Teal and a Yellow-rumped Warbler (in the cattails). Snipe and dowitchers were fun to see up close but there should have been more in the way of shorebirds, mixed waterfowl and interesting landbirds. The muck at the bottom of this res, especially n of CR124 is rich with leaches and is a source of food for the shorebirds, especially yellowlegs. It is much better to visit during weekend days vs weekdays because oil field traffic is reduced.

[cid:3dd18ebb-7be1-4352-adf6-1fd672485728]

FYI, earlier in the day we visited the Wyoming Hereford Ranch area in eastern Cheyenne, WY just s of I-80. Wyoming Hereford Ranch Reservoir #1 (e of E. College Drive and s out S. Industrial Road) had extensive mudflats: Black-bellied Plover (1), lots of American Pipits, a few Baird's and Least Sandpipers, one Franklin's Gull, assorted common ducks, and Clay-colored and Vesper Sparrows.

At nearby Wyoming Hereford Ranch proper we had a Golden-crowned Kinglet, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, "Solitary" Vireo I strongly suspect was Cassin's, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, an apparently "pure" yellow-shafted Northern Flicker (note one yellow tail feather in photo below), a few late Bank Swallows, several Barn Swallows, several Turkey Vultures overhead, several Yellow-rumped Warblers mostly in pines, one Wilson's Warbler, a couple juncos, one Song Sparrow, one White-crowned Sparrow, two Townsend's Solitaires, Lori Pivonka, Fawn Simonds, no empids or other flycatchers, no Orange-crowned Warblers or more unusual warblers, no thrushes besides robins, no Lincoln's Sparrows or towhees. Where are the birds?

[cid:d9b6ec5e-19c5-4784-b9a3-5c23901835e9]

Drive the speed limits in Cheyenne. We almost got nailed but for a sacrificial pickup behind us going the same speed as us that caused an officer to turn around in pursuit.

Subject: [cobirds] County Road 124 Pond Update [Weld]

Hi all

The Weld CR 124 pond is drawing down and offers nice shorebird habitat--and birds! Did not walk into Weld CR 122 (.5m west of Weld CR 75/122) but suspect same conditions there. Weld CR 116 playa is full of water, no shoreline and two shovelers.

* Wilson's Snipe - 7
* Long-billed Dowitcher - 15
* Greater Yellowlegs - 6+
* Least Sandpiper - 2
* Loads of ducks, some geese

I did most of travel on county roads north of Pawnee Buttes to WY border ...

* Ferruginous Hawk - 3
* Swainson's Hawk - 6
* Red-tailed Hawk - 2
* Prairie Falcon - 3
* Tons of Vesper Sparrow, meadowlarks and horned larks
* Some Lark, White-crowned, and Chipping Sparrow
* Other interesting bird was Yellow-headed Blackbird - 2 hanging out with flock of Red-wingeds in the "middle of nowhere"

Other odd novelties were a small, looks to be a working, Zion Church on Weld CRs 124/111 in the "middle of nowhere" with houses/ranches not to be found in vicinity. Also, nearby was a four-story what looked to be a fire lookout perched in middle of prairie.

Beautiful drive ...

Thanks, Gary Lefko, Nunn

Subject: [cobirds] Grandview Cemetery, Fort Collins (Larimer) on 10/1 and a spelling correction
Yesterday at Grandview Cemetery, west terminus of Mountain Avenue in Fort Collins, I had the following highlights/lowlights:
Cassin's Finch (1 female) First Of Year (FOY)
White-crowned Sparrow (1 imm Gambel's race)
Chipping Sparrow (at least 10, mixed juvenile and winter adult plumages)
Dark-eyed Junco (6, mixed pink-sided and Oregon races, First Of Season (FOS) for Oregon)
Cooper's Hawk (female)
Great Horned Owl (flew to a honeylocust over the ditch in late afternoon, think it was trying for crayfish, ignored fox squirrel running around right in plain sight under it burying Ohio buckeyes, ignored me, too, 20 yards away waiting for an action shot that never materialized)

[cid:02a7b1a9-95da-454d-9c32-a848af9f4293]
Owl staring intently at slowly flowing irrigation ditch for prey (probably crayfish).

Barn Swallows (getting late)
Brown Creeper (2 FOS, arriving for the winter)
Lesser Goldfinch (still present)
Hairy Woodpecker (did not see which race it was)
Pine Siskin (heard flyover)
Turkey Vulture (one heading south, one heading to Mountain Avenue roost e of cemetery)
Total of 31 species (counting an additional 4 species added at nearby Sheldon Lake in City Park)

In summary, still plenty of insects until we have a freeze. As for birds, still a few summer species, a few winter species arriving, a few pass-thru migrants but no warblers, no thrushes, no flycatchers, no vireos (Cassin's Vireo WAS reported recently by Ed Raynor), no tanagers, no grosbeaks.

Fox Squirrels mostly getting beans from honeylocust pods and burying Ohio buckeyes. Watched the individual, which dared (or was oblivious to) the Great Horned Owl, bury one buckeye in Section B fully 100 yards from the source tree in Section 11 (to do this it held a large buckeye in its mouth, crossed an irrigation ditch by going up an elm on one side of the ditch, out the elm branches, leaping across to the branch of a linden growing on the other side, down to the ground and off into the grass and headstones of its heart's desire).

[cid:ae023ac7-8432-432b-973b-634b320b3468]
FOSQ removing beans from green pod, eating contents on the spot, then discarding outer covering of beans, no bean left unturned. These are the same beans that can be infested by the honeylocust seed beetle (Amblycerus robiniae) that Downy Woodpeckers prey on (see "The Hungry Bird" in "Colorado Birds" Issue 50(1), January 2016).

[As for the spelling error, in a post yesterday I mentioned a shorebird food item at A&B Res #1 on Weld CR124 w of CR77 as being "leaches". "Leach" is what colored cotton clothes do in hot water. A "leech" is a blood-sucking worm related to earthworms, which is, of course, what I meant.]

were good ones! Today's 9 birds of 6 species included two that were
first-of-season birds.

Warbling Vireo 1 (FOS)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Swainson's Thrush 1 (FOS)
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 4
White-crowned Sparrow (Mountain) 1
Western Scrub-jay 1

We are out here every weekday until Oct 11 - feel free to stop by, the

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/30/19
Fittingly, the last day of what's been a warm and windy month was warm and
windy. We enjoyed about an hour of nice conditions this morning before the
south breeze picked up, and we had to close most of our nets by 9:00. Not
too many birds turned up as a result: 13 newly banded individuals, 1
recapture, and 6 total species.

The morning's highlight was another *Sharp-shinned Hawk*, a hatch-year
female that made for a nice contrast to last week's much smaller male.
Otherwise, we noted a decent number of Hermit Thrushes, Kinglets, and
Yellow-rumped Warblers around, but most of them were among the tall
cottonwoods on the more-protected north side of the banding station area
where we don't have nets set up. Here's hoping they'll turn up among the
nets tomorrow.

Another interesting capture was a male Ruby-crowned Kinglet with
yellow-orange crown feathers rather than the typical scarlet/ruby color.
This is a relatively rare color variation found in under 10% of male
kinglets!

Today's summary:

Wilson's Warbler 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 6
Hermit Thrush 2
Gray Catbird 1 + 1 recapture
Spotted Towhee 1
Sharp-shinned Hawk 1

We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays. Tomorrow we'll be operating
nets from 6:50–11:50 AM on Monday, and from 7:00 AM––Noon the remaining
days––weather permitting. Come visit!

Hooded warbler was seen in the thickets across the stream at 39.577202, -104.982320.
It is off the gravel trail that goes from Mineral to the west on Lee Gulch trail. About 50 yards in there is a dead tree with a limb that comes straight out then goes straight up at a 90 degree angle.
Birders were Claire Montour and myself.

Grant- it was shortly after you left, closer to Mineral
Many thanks to Santi Tabares who originally spotted the bird.
The most amazing birds have been found lately in areas that I’ve never even birded before! It was a lifer for me. Thanks

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/29/19
Between the early morning fog and the late morning wind, we managed to
squeeze in a couple of hours with birds to share with the Kingery's
Beginning Birder class. 13 new birds:

House Wren 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3
Gray Catbird 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 3
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 3
Wilson's Warbler 2

PLEASE NOTE the change in our schedule - we are now opening nets at 7:40
(an hour later) and should have birds back at the station by 8:20. We are
open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through October
13. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we are closing earlier
as needed due to the heat and/or wind. School groups arrive most weekdays
at about 9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people, most birds) is before
9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Nuthatch behavior, Boulder county
I sat in a forest west of Nederland for four hours today as I played the fiddle for families walking through an “enchanted forest “. It was a fundraiser for a Nederland ecology/nature center that is going to be built there.
I enjoyed the wildlife and bemoaned the fact that I hadn’t brought my binoculars. Nonetheless, I enjoyed being “forced “ to sit for 4 hours, time to let me watch the wildlife at work.
Specifically, I watched as a chipmunk stored his seed under a small flat rock. A short while later, a red breasted nuthatch came and stole his stash. The chipmunk came back a while later with his cheek pouches full and stored a new batch of seeds. Soon after that a white breasted nuthatch came and stole the whole stash.
Although it was quite the score for the birds, I do hope the chipmunk figures it out and gets to store enough for winter!
It was a beautiful day!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Grand Valley Audubon Society, 9/28/19
Today's public banding day went well, with most visitors arriving early
enough to see plenty of birds. We ended up banding 13 new birds and 5
recaptures, including one return from a previous season. For some reason,
Spotted Towhees came out in force today and we ended up with six. We also
got one new species, an Audubon's Warbler. Though we were worried about
high winds, the weather held out until around 11.

Audubon's Warbler 1 (FOS)
Juniper Titmouse 1
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 6 (plus two banded this season)
Spotted Towhee 5 (plus one return from a previous season)
Bewick's Wren 1 bird banded this season
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher 1 bird banded this season

I'm banding at Connected Lakes State Park every M-F until October 11th! If
you would like to see some birds feel free to stop by between 7:30 and
11:00, the earlier the better.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/28/19
The weather today truly felt like fall for the first time, but
unfortunately, that made it a little harder for us to catch birds. Drizzle
postponed our net opening by an hour, and even after that, damp, cloudy,
and cool conditions persisted for the remainder of the morning. While I
appreciated the cooler temps, there weren't many birds to show for it, with
13 newly banded birds, 1 recapture, and 6 species.

There were a few interesting captures though. These included our first *Red-naped
Sapsucker* of the season, and the 10th fall banding record for the species
here. The sapsucker also had the honor of being the 50th species banded
this season at Chico. We also had a *Red-eyed Vireo*––our 3rd capture of
the season of the species, more than any previous fall.

Today's summary:

Wilson's Warbler 5
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3
Red-eyed Vireo 1
Cassin's Vireo 1
Hermit Thrush 2 + 1 recapture
Red-naped Sapsucker 1 (FOS)

We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays. Next week is our last week of
the season, and we'll be operating nets from 6:50–11:50 AM on Monday and
Tuesday, and from 7:00 AM––Noon the remaining days. Come visit!

Well today was quite windy from the start. We were only able to open a
handful of the nets due to high winds, and had to close them all at around
9:30. There were lots of warblers and kinglets flitting around the willows
and it may have been a busy morning if not for the wind! As it was, we only
banded 6 birds for the day, and had 2 recaptures. Here are the newly banded
birds:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 1
Orange-crowned Warbler: 1
Yellow-rumped 'Audubon's' Warbler: 3
Spotted Towhee: 1



PLEASE NOTE the change in our schedule - we are now opening nets at 7:40
(an hour later) and should have birds back at the station by 8:20. We are
open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through October
13. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we are closing earlier
as needed due to the heat. School groups arrive most weekdays at about

The hooded warbler is still in the same spot as of this morning at

south side of the stream. When you are sitting in the clearing on the
north side of the stream, the thicket is upstream on the south side. He

Subject: [cobirds] CU Birding Club - Boulder Goshawk
Hello all,

The newly formed CU-Boulder Birding Club made its inaugural outing this
morning to Walden and Sawhill Ponds in Boulder. Attendees were Will
Anderson, Paige Scatena, Jared Ganeles, Cole Sites, and me (the club's
faculty sponsor). We had a nice morning, finding 38 species. The undisputed
highlight was a juvenile Northern Goshawk that soared and flapped high over
our heads for several minutes. Cole got some nice pictures that should show
up on eBird at some point soon.

We heard from a couple other birders that a Sora was walking around in the
open on the northwesternmost pond at Sawhill (the one with the Osprey
platform). We didn't see it. There were two Great Horned Owls perched in
trees along the Sawhill Ponds trail at different points west of the parking
lot.

Good birding,

Nathan Pieplow
Boulder

Subject: [cobirds] 1,000 days of complet checklsit celebration at Barr Lake, Adams County


I started some time ago with ebird’s challenge of a full year of complete
bird checklist, and I kept going after that year. Many times, I had to make
due with a five-minute yard list before work, other times I would have a
great day trip or a long vacation. And there was some day that proved a
challenge. But today I hit a rather exiting number, 1,000 days of complete
checklist streak on ebird! Seeing this day coming I made plans and thought
of my favorite places to go bird watching, and take the day off if needed.
In the end I did not need to, fortunately the day fall on my off Friday. I
had a month ago settled on going to Barr Lake, always a favorite of mine.

I found the bird activity to be rather quite for this
place, but I still had a fun day of wandering about and seeing what I could
find. I managed to pick out three Clark’s Grebes out of the remaining
Western Grebes, and I found a sparrow that might have been a Clay-Collared
but I am not sure on that. I have a few photos to go over to see, it’s
either a Clay-Collard or a Chipping Sparrow. I also found some
White-Crowned Sparrows, a sign of the changing seasons at this low
altitude.

The biggest excitement I got was watching the resident Bald Eagle nest.
There was one adult on the nest, and when it left a Black-billed Magpie
landed in the nest to have a look. The eagle shortly returned and bombed
the nest, driving out the Magpie, but these birds are rather persistent and
returned, only to be driven out again. Despite the low activity it was a
fun day and a fun way to celebrate a rather devoted streak. I will keep it
going.


Good birding,

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/27/19
While it was another fairly breezy morning at here, the northerly wind
direction made a big difference compared to yesterday. Not only were most
nets more sheltered, but the wind direction was more favorable for the
migrants, and so things were rather productive. I banded 52 new birds and
had 2 recaptures, of 11 total species. Those numbers could've been a lot
higher but I was on my own and had to limit net hours somewhat––there were
a lot of birds around!

The most unique capture was a young male *Western Palm Warbler*, only the
second fall banding record here (the first was back in 2009)! Otherwise, it
was extremely thrushy, with a steady stream of Hermit Thrushes throughout
the morning. Sparrows were active as well, especially the White-crowneds,
and we had our first Mountain subspecies of the season.

Today's summary:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 6 + 1 recapture
Wilson's Warbler 4
Orange-crowned Warbler 3
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 2
Pink-sided Junco, 1
Palm Warbler, Western 1 (FOS)
Lincoln's Sparrow 6
Hermit Thrush 18
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 6
White-crowned Sparrow, Mountain 1 (FOS)
Song Sparrow 1
Spotted Towhee 3
Brown Thrasher 1 recapture


We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays. Tomorrow we're opening nets
at 6:50 AM and closing at 11:50 AM, weather permitting. Come visit!

My wife and I went camping down at Trinidad Lake State Park this week, Las
Animas County. Birds everwhere! This morning, Friday 27 Sept, around 0800
am, I had a red bird fly over me as I sat and enjoyed the sunrise and a
great cup of coffee. I was pretty excited when I saw it. Wasn't sure if
Hepatic Tanagers were still around this time of year. This one stayed
around long enough for us to get a lifer! Awesome!

Things were pretty nice until the wind picked up at about 9:30. We did
manage to capture 24 new birds. Highlight was an adult male Western
Tanager. Here's the breakdown:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Hermit Thrush 4
Orange-crowned Warbler 5
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 4
Common Yellowthroat 1
Wilson's Warbler 1
Western Tanager 1
Green-tailed Towhee 2
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 2
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 1

PLEASE NOTE the change in our schedule - we are now opening nets at 7:40
(an hour later) and should have birds back at the station by 8:20. We are
open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through October
13. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we are closing earlier
as needed due to the heat. School groups arrive most weekdays at about
9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people, most birds) is before 9:30
weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Grand Valley Audubon Society, 9/27/19
Today was a steady bird day, with our second-highest total of the season at
18 birds of 8 species. One of our birds was a very pretty first-of-season
young male American Redstart, which is rarely captured here (a picture is
at the end of this post). We also got a steady supply of kinglets, which
seem to have come in force.

Wilson's Warbler 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3
American Redstart 1 (FOS)
House Finch 1
White-crowned Sparrow (Mountain) 3 (FOS)
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 6
Spotted Towhee 1

Don't forget that tomorrow is public banding day at Connected Lakes State
Park from 7:30 to 11:00 (weather permitting)! Arrive early, since that's
when you're most likely to see birds (and it looks like the wind might pick
up later). Anyone who can't make it is welcome to stop by any
Monday-Friday until Oct 11.

Hi Everyone, I spent this morning 9/27 walking around Crow Valley Campground. Montane migrants were moving through: Hermit Thrush, solitaires, Red-breasted Nuthatch, both kinglets, four species of warblers. Raptors were also moving: a Sharp-shinned Hawk and a Broad-winged Hawk, both immatures. The broad-wing was perched in the cottonwoods near the group picnic shelter. It was vocalizing, so I got a recording of it with my phone using SoundSleuth. It was unable to identify the sound, of course, but it gave me a decent recording and a spectrograph. Wish I could turn up the gain a few dB.Mark Miller Longmont, CO Sent via the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, an AT&T 5G Evolution capable smartphone

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/26/19
There was a hint of fall briskness in the air this morning, but a
persistent south breeze kept the birds hunkered down and forced some of our
most productive nets to close early. That made for a markedly slower day
than yesterday's business, with 18 banded birds, 2 recaptures, and 11 total
species. A *Vesper's Sparrow *was the day's most unique capture.

The summary:

Wilson's Warbler 3 + 1 recapture
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 3
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
Hermit Thrush 3
Song Sparrow 1
Vesper Sparrow 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1
Brown Thrasher 1
Spotted Towhee 1 recapture

We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays. This week we're opening nets

Today was a steady day at the GVAS station, with 10 new birds and 4
recaptures (including two that were banded in a previous year) of 5
species. This includes a new species for the season, a Pink-sided Junco.
Numbers have been holding pretty steady for the last few days, though I
hope it will pick up soon.

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher 1
Bewick's Wren 1
Dark-eyed Junco (Pink-sided) 1 (FOS)
White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel's) 6 (plus two repeats banded yesterday and
one return from a different season)
Spotted Towhee 1 (plus one return from a previous season)

Public banding day is on Saturday the 28th from 7:30 to 11:00 - don't miss
it! The earlier you arrive, the more likely you are to see a bird! Anyone
is also welcome to visit the banding station at Connected Lakes State Park
any weekday from 7:30 to 11ish, but try to arrive before 9:30 or so (the
school groups get here at 9:30). Hope to see you there!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/26/19
This is a great time of year to see a nice variety of birds at the banding
station! We caught 15 species - our largest weighed in at 92.1 grams (Blue
Jay); the smallest at 5.6 (Golden-crowned Kinglet). There were 7 sparrow
species, including both common towhees. The GCKI deserves special mention
because he was the most beautiful ever - an adult male with a huge patch of
red surrounded by yellow on his crown. Here's the breakdown of today's 30
new birds:

Blue Jay 2 (1 adult male and 1 hatch year of unknown sex. Caught together
in the net.)
House Wren 1
Golden-crowned Kinglet 1
Hermit Thrush 2
Gray Catbird 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 8
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 1
Wilson's Warbler 2
Spotted Towhee 1
Green-tailed Towhee 3
Chipping Sparrow 1
Song Sparrow 3
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 2
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 1

PLEASE NOTE the change in our schedule - we are now opening nets at 7:40
(an hour later) and should have birds back at the station by 8:20. We are
open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through October
13. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we are closing earlier
as needed due to the heat. School groups arrive most weekdays at about
9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people, most birds) is before 9:30
weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] NE Colo Shorebirds
Yesterday morning I arrived at the south side of Jumbo Reservoir in Logan
and Sedgewick Counties to find some shoreline. Nearly every body of water
in SE Colo has been full, therefore seeing some mud flats was good. Easily
visible were Least, Solitary, Stilt, Pectoral, Baird's, Semipalmated, and
Western Sandpipers, Sanderling, Long-billed Dowitchers, Greater and Lesser
Yellowlegs, and a Semipalmated Plover among a zillion Killdeer..

Backtracking to the south side of Prewitt Reservoir in Washington County
(mud boots advised), there were much larger numbers of the above species
(except Sanderling). Also Snowy Egrets, Common and Black Terns. I have
several photos of a Black-bellied Plover standing next to what appeared to
be an American Golden Plover, but juvenile Black-bellied is so similar,
especially in the field vs. books with different light, postures, etc. I'm
still working it out.

In favor of AGPL: fairly prominent supercilium giving the appearance of
dark cap, wings look very long, definitely a warmer brown color wash than
BBPL behind it. In favor of juv BBPL: bill looks a bit big, breast and
belly appear dirty but the bird has white undertail coverts. I believe it's
an AGPL, I'd welcome any thoughts.

From: DAVID A LEATHERMAN <daleatherman...>
Subject: [cobirds] Southeastern CO visit summary
The recent visit to Lamar and a few other locations in southeastern Colorado began September 14th and ended today (September 25th). I mostly worked Lamar Community College and the two Lamar cemeteries (Riverside and Fairmount). Thurston Res north of town was visited once. Total number of species for the make-believe "Lamar CBC" area (roughly 7 miles in all directions from the center of downtown) was 84. That is respectable, I suppose, but my sense is that historically this same time period and the locations visited should yield well over 100 species, maybe as many as 120. The few bodies of water are full to the brim, limiting shorebirds. Migrant songbirds were quite low in number, particularly eastern migrants. The migration seems either late, paltry or both.

Highlights for Lamar were:
Two individual vireos (1 plumbeous and 1 warbling)
Six species of warblers (common yellowthroat, yellow, orange-crowned, yellow-rumped, Wilson's and ovenbird)
Three individual empidonax flycatchers (1 Hammond's (LCC), 1 willow (Riverside Cem) and 1 Cordilleran (LCC))

[cid:6a6f1777-f37f-4301-90d4-56f4e8b5cb55] [cid:d761696d-2e57-484d-b899-78b04c86e0a8]
Hammond's (left: short beak, big gray head, green back, long primary extension, teardrop eyering, rough rear crown), Willow (right: big empid, minimal eyering, mostly yellow longish beak, wide straight tail, pale gray head)

Only two western wood-pewees
Broad-winged Hawk (seen today over Willow Valley subdivision e of Willow Creek Park)
Mountain forms of both downy and hairy woodpeckers at Lamar Community College (LCC)
Northern cardinal family at LCC
Red-headed woodpecker juv at LCC
Oriole seen poorly at LCC that I think was Baltimore female
Chimney swifts in fairly good numbers trickling over, saw one go down chimney in late morning at LCC (tired traveler?)
Clark's grebe (few adults with a half dozen "teenagers" at Thurston Res)
Rail heard at Thurston which I think was a black (right "voice", not quite saying "keek-a-doo" but almost)
Last Mississippi kite seen on the 23th, a juvie, in with 85 vultures
Sparrows just starting to appear in rural roadsides/fields in decent numbers (most vesper and clay-colored, groups of lark buntings mostly in sunflowers and milo fields, few savannahs seen north of town)
Turkey vultures moving south daily in decent numbers

Lots of monarch butterflies moving south, roosting in tree areas late in the afternoon and overnight

Birds NOT seen in Lamar that should have been there (in no particular order): Nashville warbler, olive-sided flycatcher, Townsend's warbler, northern waterthrush, hermit and Swainson's thrushes, gnatcatchers, kinglets in good numbers (only saw one ruby-crowned), towhees, mockingbird, great crested flycatcher, good numbers of pewees and Wilson's warblers, at least one or two eastern warbler species, more than one "solitary" vireo, red-eyed vireo, very few kingbirds (expected at least one Cassin's), ducks.

Made two trips over to Hasty Campground below John Martin Res dam. Highlights were:
Black-throated blue warbler (male in elms eating elm leaf beetles, interestingly two other individuals of this species reported in CO within a day or so of the this one)

[cid:9a423e14-ece9-4834-b605-02bdad11cf4e]
Townsend's warbler (one or two, found by Duane)
Few arriving juncos
Eastern bluebirds
Western tanagers
Black terns
Sterna tern (probable common)
Bullock's oriole (somewhat late)
Cassin's kingbird (group of 3 seen about half mile e of the fresh Confederate flag at least one resident of Caddoa is so proud of).

Melody Tempel's Grove in Bent County nnw of Lamar was almost birdless on the 23rd but did have an early solitaire.

One visit to Upper Queens Reservoir (Kiowa) turned up a pretty good batch of shorebirds including one sanderling (all in the nw corner n of the northwest corner boat ramps).

Very few tarantulas this year so far. Saw a few good butterflies including gulf fritillary, Eufala skipper, tropical buckeye, little sulphur, eastern giant swallowtail chrysalis (thanks to Lorie Kaczmarek, Mike Fisher and Janeal for showing me these).

Rhipicerid beetles ("cedar beetles", genus Sandalus) were flying toward the end of visit. Larvae of these beetles prey on cicada nymphs in the soil.

My entomologist friend Whitney has had a "Biggest Cat-faced Spider Contest" every year for the last 11. One from Janeal's Lamar backyard came back with me today and weighed in at 3.75 grams, 20% heavier than any the contest has measured previously. After the historic weigh-in, it will be released in Whitney's backyard to, as he said, "upgrade the Fort Collins gene pool."

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Grand Valley Audubon Society, 9/24/19-9/25/19
Unfortunately I was not able to get out my report in time yesterday, but
fortunately bird numbers here in the Grand Valley have picked up!
Yesterday (Tuesday) we banded a grand total of 30 birds, which doubled our
numbers for the season from 30 to 60. There were also two birds captured
that were banded in previous years. These numbers were bolstered by the
addition of 16 Bushtits, which tend to come through the banding station in
large flocks.

Numbers for 9/24:
Wilson's Warbler 1
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher 1
Bushtit 14 (plus two returns; FOS)
Townsend's Warbler 1 (FOS)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 2 (FOS)
Bewick's Wren 2
Cassin's Vireo 1 (FOS)
White-crowned Sparrow 7
Spotted Towhee 1

Today our numbers were lower but still higher than they have been in the
past, at 10 birds.

Numbers for 9/25:
Wilson's Warbler 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 2
Common Yellowthroat 1 (FOS)
White-crowned Sparrow 6

We are open every weekday from about 7:30 to around 11:00, but the earlier
you visit, the more birds you can see! School groups also get here at
about 9:30, so the best time to visit is before then. Also, this Saturday
is Public Banding Day which will (weather permitting) run from 7:30 to
11:00. Hope to see you there!

Hey COBirders,

A few thing to report on a very slow day again at Clear Spring Ranch banding.

FOS Gray Flycatcher, Adult. - latest I’ve had here by two weeks
A late Yellow Warbler, Adult F, I’ve only had one later, ever, on !0/1
and only the 2nd Ruby-crowned Kinglet (Hatch-year F) of the season.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/24/19
A really nice day - good weather and lots of birds - 55 new, 17 species.
We caught our second Savannah Sparrow of the season; the only other one was
caught in 1991! The Yellow-rumped (Audubon's) Warblers and Chipping
Sparrows came mid to late morning in tight flocks; the 7 AUWAs were all in
the same net at the same time. The Blue Grosbeak, our fourth of the
season, was young and likely a sibling of the 2 other young ones we caught
a few days ago. Here's the breakdown:

House Wren 6
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Swainson's Thrush 1
Hermit Thrush 1
Gray Catbird 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 8
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 7
MacGillivray's Warbler 1
Wilson's Warbler 6
Green-tailed Towhee 3
Chipping Sparrow 12
Savannah Sparrow 1
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 2
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 2
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 1
Blue Grosbeak 1

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through
October 13. We are opening nets at 6:40 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:20. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we are
closing earlier as needed due to the heat. School groups arrive most
weekdays at about 9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people, most birds)
is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/24/19
With overcast, breezy, and mild weather at the start of the morning, I
wasn't expecting too many birds today. But we still saw some action with a
modest stream of captures throughout the day, ending with 27 newly-banded
birds and 1 recapture, of 14 total species. We also surpassed 500 banded
birds for the season today!

The top highlight was a first-of-season Sharp-shinned Hawk, a young male,
that we got to show off to a visiting group of 1st- and 2nd-graders. There
also seemed to be plenty of sparrows and thrushes around; though we didn't
catch too many of them, we noticed quite a few more skulking around the
nets today. Both of the Hermit Thrushes we banded were likely of the
uncommon Pacific Lowland group based on their short wing measurements, just
like the individual we caught yesterday.

Today's summary:

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 5
Wilson's Warbler 5
Hammond's Flycatcher 2
Dusky Flycatcher 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Chipping Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 2
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 2
Hermit Thrush 2
Swainson's Thrush 2
Western Tanager 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1
Sharp-shinned Hawk 1 (FOS)
Brown Thrasher 1 (Recapture)

We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays. This week we're opening nets
at 6:50 AM and closing at 11:50 AM, weather permitting. Come visit!

Cobirders,

The Hooded Warbler was seen at the previously described location at 5:15 pm this evening. The best way to see the bird is to employ the method used by those that saw the bird yesterday. Cross the creek to the small clearing on the north side of the creek. Plop down and be patient. The bird seems to respond to chipping notes. It was seen on the south bank of the creek quietly foraging close to the ground. It makes a chip or two at long intervals.

Subject: [cobirds] Larimer Cty Prothonotary Warbler
At 4:00 this afternoon, the Prothonotary Warbler, originally found by Jay
Breidt, continues in the extreme southeast corner of the Environmental
Learning Center in Fort Collins. It was working the top of a medium-sized
Cottonwood Tree along the river about 35 yards upstream from the southeast
fence line (just upstream from a somewhat dry backwater channel coming off
the river). At one point it dropped straight down to the water's edge and
foraged in amongst the overhanging grasses and was out of sight right in
front of me.

Today was slightly busier than the last few days of banding, with five
birds and one new species. Spotted Towhees are a species that I've been
expected and I was glad to get one.

Wilson's Warbler 1
MacGillivray's Warbler 1
House Finch 1
White-crowned Sparrow 1
Spotted Towhee 1

This saturday the 28th is public day at Connected Lakes! Official times
are 8:30 to 11, but the earlier you arrive the more birds you are likely to
see. Hope to see you there!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/23/19
We had some nice weather and decent banding activity at Chico this morning:
33 newly-banded birds and 3 recaptures of 14 total species.

Nothing too unusual species-wise, with Lincoln's Sparrows being the
most-caught species of the day. We also had a Hermit Thrush that, based on
its coloration and relatively small measurements, likely belongs to the
"Pacific Lowlands" subspecies group that is not encountered very often out
here.

One of the recaptured birds was a Willow/Alder ("Traill's") Flycatcher that
was banded last Thursday and then recaptured on Friday. This individual
weighed 11.9 grams and 12.6 grams in those first two encounters,
respectively, and today it weighed in at 13.6 grams. A great example of a
migrant loading up on fuel supplies at a stopover site to prepare for its
next long-distance flight!

Today's summary:

Wilson's Warbler 8
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Clay-colored Sparrow 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Warbling Vireo 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 9
White-crowned Sparrow, 2
Western Tanager 3 + 1 recapture
Blue Grosbeak 1
Hermit Thrush 1 + 1 recapture
Blue Jay 1
American Robin 4
Willow/Alder ("Traill's") Flycatcher 1 recapture

We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays. This week we're opening nets
at 6:50 AM and closing at 11:50 AM, weather permitting. There will be a
large school group visiting again tomorrow, so the best time to stop by to
see birds without too much commotion will be between 7:00-8:30 AM. Come
visit!

Hey birders!

The Prothonotary Warbler at the CSU Environmental Learning Center continues as of 11:30 am today. It is in the extreme SE corner of the ELC and you may have to use some game trails to get into the denser vegetation where it is feeding. Thanks to Jay Breidt for finding this bird and thanks to Cole Wild for giving me directions at the parking lot!

Good birding,

I wonder if this years flam sights  is simply a fluke  The spring up her
in Estes was so cold and wet that maybe the owls simply stayed st lower
elevations for this  nesting season.

I have a few areas  around Estes Park where I would see flans every
year. This year the birds were absent.  Also this year I knew of two
flam nests in Lyons, were they had previously been unseen.

It will be interesting what happens next spring.

Chuck Aid raised the question of possible harm to "Flame Owls" in a note to
CObirds on September 2.
That note and my response are below. I asked Dr. Brian Linkhart, FLOW
expert at Colorado College to weigh in, and his note follows too.

Sept 2: message from Chuck Aid
The increase in recent Flam Owl sightings reinforces my feelings that it
would be best not to report some sightings on eBird. Does this look like
harassment to anyone else? I would appreciate the perspective of others.
Thanks,
Chuck Aid

Sept 2: reply from Joe Roller
As far as I can tell, the 2019 FLOW reports have not been from a single,
certain nesting location,
but have been on roads going SE of Bailey toward Cheesman Lake, a large,
vague area. So this seems
different for instance from a Spotted Owl Stake Out nesting site, which
would attract many birders to a certain,
exact site, leading to probable harassment.
There is a lot of good Flammulated Owl habitat in those general areas of
Jefferson County, so maybe eBird reports are not so bad.
Some very ethical, experienced birders have been among the birders posting
this year.
Next, it seems better to me if field trips are made *after the breeding
season*, instead of during it, perhaps minimizing harassment.
Colorado Bird Atlas II notes nesting dates of: May 25 (first occupied nest)
to July 23 (last nest with young).
So mid to late August and early September checklists seem less problematic
than ones in June and July.

And the ABA code of ethics pertain here, with obvious guidelines like:
a) not playing owl tapes til your batteries run low,
b) trying to get in and out of a small owl's neighborhood without dawdling,
gawking, shining lights like Las Vegas
c) or trying for the 80th flash photo til "the crank of dawn".

Sept 23: opinion of Dr,. Brian Linkhart, Professor at Colorado College

Happy to weigh in on this, and I appreciate your contacting me about it,
Joe.
Your comments are largely on target, so I’ll only state a few additions to
incorporate.

First, I’d expand the dates of the nesting season to go to Aug. 1, since we
regularly have late nests (certainly this year) that don’t fledge young
until early August.
Otherwise your mid/late August timeline for conducting field trips is
reasonable, as June and July are definitely problematic for conducting
playbacks (this can cause females to abandon nests if within 100 m of
playbacks, and it’s very challenging to know with certainly if one is
outside this radius).
Second, I’d limit total playback time to 15 min, as August and September
are when males are establishing ownership of breeding territories (before
they migrate), and extensive playback use may cause them to abandon their
occupancy of the area. Thanks for your efforts to minimize human impacts on
owls (and all birds). Any other questions, let me know.

Best,

Subject: [cobirds] RBA Addition: BROAD-BILLED HUMMINGBIRD/Mesa County
Hi all, I thought this was on private property and didn’t report it, but permission has been received to view bird.

This is note from Nick Korte via WSBN:

Myself and several other birders viewed a Broad-billed Hummingbird this afternoon. The rarity of the bird was recognized by the homeowner, Gene Byrne, and he had forwarded the photos attached below.

Gene and his wife are welcoming to visitors. The location is 566 36 Road (East Orchard Mesa), Palisade. The house is at the end of a long driveway just across from the fire station. Gene's house is on the right side of the drive. You can park north of the house and easily walk on to the deck/porch that is on the west side of the house overlooking the pond.

The bird has come irregularly throughout the day for 2-3 days with some significant absences. The porch is dark or shaded until about 3PM, so for "bright" views, come later in the afternoon.

Rock Wren 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 2
Hermit Thrush 2
Orange-crowned Warbler 4
Wilson's Warbler 8
Green-tailed Towhee 2
Chipping Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through
October 13. We are opening nets at 6:40 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:20. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we are
closing earlier as needed due to the heat. School groups arrive most
weekdays at about 9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people, most birds)
is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

I saw the Prothonotary Warbler again in the southeast corner of the CSU
Environmental Learning Center at 4:45pm (after Nick Komar was there). Bird
was silent and not moving much, so it was hard for me to locate. After I
photographed it it flew downstream towards Arapahoe Bend natural area.

Center in Fort Collins. The bird was associating with house wrens, one
ruby-crowned kinglet, and some chickadees. Location was approximately half
way around the loop trail, along the river, adjacent to a sign that reads
"Wanted: Habitat Dead or Alive."

Hi Everyone, It's 10:50am on 9/22, and I'm looking at a "commic" tern at the NW corner of Union Reservoir. The legs seem too long and the wings too short compared to the tail for me to call this an Arctic. This might not be the bird that Mlodinow saw. I'm attaching a digiscoped photo. Mark Miller Longmont, CO Sent via the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, an AT&T 5G Evolution capable smartphone

Subject: [cobirds] Pueblo birds 9/21
Hi all,

I counted birds for the Pueblo County Fall Bird Count. Pueblo Reservoir
was still interesting, I counted 9 juvenile Sabine's Gulls, likely the most
I've ever seen in one day. 5 off West Fishing and 4 off Sailboard
launching area. Other highlights at Pueblo Reservoir, a Common Loon
continues, as does two Common Terns, and 12 Forster's Terns. I was hoping
to find some birds along the River, between the Pueblo Reservoir dam and
the Pueblo Nature Center, though it was pretty quiet. I ended up with 73
species on the day, which is lower than usual, missed some regular birds on
the River for sure.

Happy to report that the wildfire today, right near my cabin in the Wet
Mountains is safe, way too close though.

Subject: [cobirds] Boulder County: Waneka bird festival tomorrow; Walker Ranch birds this morning
Hey, all.

*Tomorrow, Sun., Sept. 22:* Please join us for the 6th annual "Celebrating
Migratory Birds Festival," hosted by the City of Lafayette. *Start time is
1pm.* Booths with info, free stuff, live birds, and more. Also, bird walks.
All are welcome to attend; no experience necessary. Just show up anytime
from 1pm onward.

This morning, Sat., Sept. 21, I had some time to kill in the Walker Burn
area near Gross Reservoir, Boulder County. (Andrew. Mountain biking. Of
course. This is starting to rival Hannah and soccer.)

Here's my eBird checklist:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S59982276

Some lessons learned or, in some instances, relearned:

1. The Chipping Sparrow has an agonistic vocalization I'd never before
noticed. Almost like an *Empidonax* flycatcher!

2. The Sage Thrasher has a flight call (!) I'd never noticed--and that
sounds eerily similar to that of the bluebirds (especially Western).

3. Townsend's Solitaires are setting up and defending winter feeding
territories right now. Both males and females are singing.

4. Some Chipping Sparrows look freakily similar to, um, Brown Creepers. And
others somewhat similar to Field Sparrows.

5. And some Mountain Bluebirds could sure pass as Western Bluebirds! (But
look at their wings, and listen to them.)

6. Even if you dumbly leave your dedicated recording gear at home, you can
still get great audio with your smartphone.

7. Type 2 Red Crossbill flight calls are nice--especially when the birds
are sitting pretty atop a ponderosa pine.

There's always new stuff to learn!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/20-21/19
Friday through Sunday, the Bird Conservancy has been hosting the annual
meeting of the Western Bird Banding Association at Barr Lake. It has been
a great opportunity to share and learn from colleagues doing similar work
in other states. These were slow days at the banding station, but there
was a silver lining......we had time to look more closely at some
individual birds and discuss with the experts various techniques for aging
and sexing some difficult species.

Friday was especially slow, a combination of few birds around, wind and
then heat. Only banded 9 birds (plus catching another 9 banded earlier in
the season). Highlight was a Brown Thrasher:

House Wren 1
Hermit Thrush 1
Brown Thrasher 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Wilson's Warbler 5

Today (Saturday) was an improvement, with 16 new birds. As reported
earlier by volunteer Megan Miller, we started the morning with a beautiful
adult male Black-throated Blue Warbler. We also had our first Hairy
Woodpecker in several years and our second Brown Thrasher of the season
(likely the one we almost caught we the one from yesterday). Here's the
breakdown:

Hairy Woodpecker 1
Western Wood-pewee 1
House Wren 1
Gray Catbird 1
Brown Thrasher 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 3
Black-throated Blue Warbler 1
Common Yellowthroat 1
Wilson's Warbler 2
Green-tailed Towhee 3
Lincoln's Sparrow 1

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through
October 13. We are opening nets at 6:40 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:20. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we are
closing earlier as needed due to the heat. School groups arrive most
weekdays at about 9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people, most birds)
is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Odd osprey/cormorant behavior - Pueblo
COBirders-

This morning as I was doing my section of the annual Pueblo County Fall
Bird Count I spotted an osprey feeding on a good-sized fish in a distant
dead tree. Surprisingly, a double-crested cormorant was perched very
nearby. The osprey seemed not to be concerned and the cormorant seemed to
be content to wait. The image below-pixelated due to the severe crop-shows
the odd couple. It was shot from the Goodnight River Trail on the south
side of the Arkansas River about a mile and one-half west of the Pueblo
Blvd. bridge.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/21/19
What a difference a day makes. Last night's more-favorable weather brought
a nice influx of migrants this morning. One day after the slowest day of
the season, we had one of the busiest yet, with 43 newly-banded birds and 2
recaptures. Those numbers could've been even higher but some sporadic
breezy weather resulted in some net closures.

We had 12 species, mostly the usual suspects and nothing unusual. Quite a
few more sparrows today than previous mornings, with our highest Lincoln's
Sparrow totals so far, and many more lingering in nearby shrubs while I was
closing nets. I also noted that most of the Wilson's Warblers I was able to
take a close look at didn't have much fat deposited, suggesting they had
just arrived after some long-distance travel that used up their fuel
stores.

Today's summary:

Wilson's Warbler 19 + 1 recapture
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 2
House Wren 3
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Dusky Flycatcher 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 9
MacGillivray's Warbler 1
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 2
Hermit Thrush 1
American Robin 2
Brown Thrasher 1 + 1 recapture

We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays. Next week we'll be opening
nets at 6:50 AM and closing at 11:50 AM, weather permitting. There will be
a large school group visiting on Monday, so the best time to stop by to see
birds without too much commotion will be between 7:00-8:30 AM. Come visit!

Today at 11:10 when I left, there were still 6 medium sized Terns on the
east shore of Timnath Reservoir proper. They were foraging along the
northeast shore and landed in amongst the gulls on a small sand island off
the east shore, separated from the shore by a narrow water channel. Also
there was one of the on again-off again Caspian Terns. This large Tern was
foraging along the west shore catching minnows and then landed in amongst
the gulls on a sand spit point on the north shore of the lake proper. Its
large size, black cap and bright orange bill were quite noticeable.

Subject: [cobirds] Blackbirds are back at Jim Hamm Nature Area-Boulder CO
Hello All:

Large numbers (10,000+) of Yellow-headed & Red-winged Blackbirds, Starlings
and Grackles are back again at Jim Hamm Nature Area (east side of
Longmont). Starting around mid-Sept until the first week or two of Oct,
huge numbers gather there and put on quite a show when they leave en masse
in the morning. I estimate there were about 10,000 birds this morning,
roughly 7,000 YHBL, 2,000 RWBL and 1000 ish Starlings.

I'd love some confirmation on numbers, so please come check out for
yourself! I usually get there around 6:15 am, today the large body of
YHBL's rose at 6:37 am. The RWBL's left around 6:50 am. As Union Res is a
half mile to the east, there are large numbers (200-400) numbers of geese,
ducks and gulls that fly over Jim Hamm.

Here are some links to video I've taken the last couple of years so you get
an idea of numbers.

Hi all,

While walking along the Lee Gulch trail this afternoon I chanced upon a
calling male HOODED WARBLER. See the attached ebird checklist for more
details. Initially spotted roughly 50 feet from Mineral Ave.

Good birding,

Subject: [cobirds] Lamar Community College Woods (Prowers)
This is mostly an update on the condition of the LCC Woods. I have been down there 4 times since the 14th. The trail was pretty overgrown in spots and it looks rather intimidating in terms of chigger potential. On the 14th I said the heck with the consequences and surprisingly suffered no chigger bites. I have been grooming things a bit by hand and foot, and today employed clippers. I have been working from the north end toward the south and so far have it passable 3/4s of the way to where one normally emerges to the road near the north end of the basketball courts. The south end is in OK shape without a lot of “maintenance” but I will finish the north end and maybe tidy the south end a bit soon. FYI, I used to teach occasionally about proper pruning techniques. Sooo, if doubt about the physical condition of the trail has been keeping you away, no chiggers, no impassable tangles along the “main” trail. If you have an allergy to giant ragweed pollen, take your pill. (No woody plants were seriously injured in the making of this movie).

As for birds, slow sledding but today I had yellow warbler, FOS at low elevation ruby-crowned kinglet, flyover chimney swifts and ovenbird. The latter was under Russian-olives at the extreme north end just where the trail starts heading south at the bottom of the entry hill.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/20/19
A very quiet morning today: no visitors, no volunteers, and few birds
around the banding station. While the weather was calm the first few hours,
it was easily the slowest day of the season so far, with just 6
newly-banded birds and 1 recapture. I suspect that last night's strong
southerly breezes weren't very conducive for migrants, among other factors.

Today's summary:

Wilson's Warbler 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
MacGillivray's Warbler 1
House Wren 1
Western Tanager 1
Gray Catbird 1
Willow/Alder ("Traill's") Flycatcher 1 (within-season recapture)

We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays.. Tomorrow we'll be opening
nets at 6:40 AM and closing at 11:40 AM, and starting next week net will be
opened at 6:50 AM. Visitors are welcome!

See photos attached here. Since it came up as Rare I’m notifying anyone who wishes to seek it. I was walking along the railroad bed south of the shooting range late morning today.
If upon reviewing the photos it is NOT a Gray Flycatcher I’m sure someone will say what it actually is.

Unfortunately I was a bit premature to say that yesterday was a record low,
because today we caught a grand total of two birds! Without further ado:

Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Wilson's Warbler 1

Hopefully this improves next week!

Well part of that canal is dry plus doesn't seem to go all the way through so I guess it is technically a peninsula after all.

Subject: [cobirds] Migration (?), CSR, El Paso Co., Thurs
Hey COBirders,

You may have noticed a lack of posts from Clear Spring Ranch banding. Simply put, there has been little to report! It has been slow, not just this week, but since 8/1. Numbers are strikingly down from the last few falls. Last year I had phenomenal numbers, about 2300 birds banded 8/1-10/31. Right now I have banded 675 through 7 weeks. Ouch.

Basically I am right in line with the rest of the Front Range banders. It has been slow.
I expect Yellow Warblers in August, and I had my second best August for them, with 125, then Wilson’s came in (about 120 so far), fair numbers of Yellowthroats, and recently more Orange-crowned Warblers. I had FOS Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Green-tailed Towhees, and Lincoln’s Sparrows this week, pretty much on schedule, but the story is the missing sparrows and buntings.

The last few years I have had good numbers of grosbeaks and Lazuli Buntings - 85 one August. This year LAZB = 9. Black-headed and Blue Grosbeaks = 3 total. 1 Lark Sparrow in August, 0 Vesper Sparrows, 3 Brewer’s Sparrows, 8 Clay-colored Sparrows (last August I had a phenomenal 225 of them), 2 Savannah Sparrows (110 one fall), 4 Spotted Towhees, and about 75 Chipping Sparrows in seven weeks. Last year I banded 550 the week of 9/5, and 850 for the season. Two years ago 1150. What has happened?

Have birds just kept on going with the high pressure, no rain, and clear skies?

So far this year I have about 10 Song Sparrows (usually about 75), and only one White-crowned Sparrow but it is early still for them. Very few Gray Catbirds, and YB Chats, mostly recaptures. One Swainson’s Thrush, no others, not even robins.

The winner has been House Wrens! My best previous fall I banded 42. So far this fall - 90!

But also of note is the absence of other birds. Someone this week noted seeing few blackbirds and other icterids up North. They have been nonexistent here the whole time. No Red-wings, no Yellow-headed, one flock of Com Grackles, one Orchard Oriole. But also very few raptors, corvids, woodpeckers, or flycatchers.

I guess we’ll see what the next 5-6 weeks brings, but it has been pretty grim so far.

Hoping for a change, soon,

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/19/19
Even slower today, only 9 new birds. (We also had 13 recaps.) We had time
to speculate a bit about the reasons - Until this week, Wilson's Warblers
(our most frequently caught species and so the bird that has the biggest
impact on our overall totals) were coming through in typical fashion - lots
of hatch year birds first. It is time for the adults to move through, but
that hasn't started to happen yet in any number. As we endure what may be
the hottest September on record for the Denver area, perhaps the birds are
taking their time?

Here are the new birds:

Red-shafted Flicker 1
Western Wood-pewee 1
Hermit Thrush 1
Gray Catbird 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 2
Wilson's Warbler 1
Chipping Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through
October 13. We are opening nets at 6:40 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:20. We will close nets most days at 11:40, although we are
closing earlier as needed due to the heat. School groups arrive most
weekdays at about 9:30. The best time to visit (fewest people, most birds)
is before 9:30 weekdays and Sundays.

Come visit!

Subject: [cobirds] Hasty CG (Bent) on 19 Sept 2019
Had a male Black-throated Blue Warbler between 10:30 and noonish today in the northeast corner of Hasty Campground, site 89. Bird stayed in crowns of Siberian elms feeding White-breasted nuthatch-style on elm leaf beetle larvae and adults atop branches (rarely was out in the leaves).. Never came low or cooperated much for photos but I did get documentary pics. Called Duane Nelson who unbeknownst to me was also in the campground. He was able to see the bird and then showed me a Townsend’s Warbler male he had found earlier. Another Townsend’s might have also been present.

While walking together and solving the world’s many problems (send contributions to my home address), we also saw Eastern Bluebirds, a female Bullock’s Oriole (late), Yellow Warbler (late), Dark-eyed Junco(somewhat early), White-crowned Sparrow immature Gambel’s (somewhat early), Western Tanagers eating Russian olives. Per Dan Stringer’s recent report, Lake Hasty continues to host Black Terns but little else.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chico Basin Ranch, 9/18 & 9/19
After a tough start to the week, we enjoyed some calmer weather the last
few days that allowed for some more productive mist netting. Both yesterday
(Wednesday) and today were quite similar, with moderate bird activity and a
good variety of species: 32 newly banded birds + 1 recapture and 17 species
on Wednesday, and 33 newly banded birds of 15 species today. Between the
two days we had 25 total species banded.

Yesterday we had four new species for the season: *Audubon's Yellow-rumped
Warbler, **Brewer's Sparrow*, *Townsend's Solitaire*, and *Plumbeous Vireo*.
Today we captured 4 *Vesper Sparrows *all on a single net run, also a
first-of-season species. Prior to this year, no more than 3 Vespers have
ever been caught in a single fall season at Chico.

Yesterday also marked the midway point of the fall season here. It's
certainly going by fast! We just eclipsed the 400 birds banded mark today,
which is a fair bit off the pace from a typical season here. I'm hoping for
some more agreeable weather and some late migration pulses to bump our
numbers up in the final weeks.

A combined summary from the last two days:

Wilson's Warbler 17 + 1 within-season recapture
Willow/Alder ("Traill's") Flycatcher 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 2
Orange-crowned Warbler 3
Yellow Warbler 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 1 (FOS)
Clay-colored Sparrow 1
Brewer's Sparrow 1 (FOS)
House Wren 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 2
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1
Warbling Vireo 1
Red-eyed Vireo 1
Plumbeous Vireo 1 (FOS)
Townsend's Solitaire 2 (FOS)
Western Tanager 3
Hermit Thrush 1
Swainson's Thrush 1
Blue Grosbeak 5
Vesper Sparrow 4 (FOS)
Green-tailed Towhee 7
Gray Catbird 3
Brown Thrasher 2
Northern Mockingbird 1
American Robin 2

We are open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays. For the remainder of this
week we'll be opening nets at 6:40 AM and closing at 11:40 AM, weather
permitted. Visitors are welcome!

Subject: [cobirds] Sabine's Gull at Blanca Wetlands
Spent the morning out and about birding the area. Was excited to find a
juvenile Sabine's Gull on pond 184. You have to walk a ways from the main
road to this pond. But the bird seemed nervous and soon took to the skies
to parts unknown. But plenty of birds out there including Least, Baird's
Semi-palmated and Western Sandpipers, Black-bellied Plover, Willet and
Avocets (All in Alamosa County). Peregrine Falcons were on the hunt and
scattered flocks of shorebirds periodically. There was also an abundance of
upland birds with bountiful numbers of Sage Thrasher, GT Towhee, and
Brewer's Sparrows flitting from shrub to shrub. A Gray Flycatcher and
American Pipits were nice to see.

Wading birds included Bittern, BC Night-herons, Snowy Egrets and WF Ibis.
All the Rabbitbrush is now flowering in brilliant yellow, a sure harbinger
of changes to come.

will pick up soon.

Wilson's Warbler 1
Black-capped Chickadee 1 (FOS)
MacGillivray's Warbler 1 (FOS)

Looks like it is a good day for these two species in Colorado, Margie Joy
and I saw three juvenile *Sabine's Gulls* off West Fishing Road at Pueblo
Reservoir (Pueblo County) today, along with six* Red-necked Phalaropes*
close to shore. Hopefully they stay for the Fall Bird Count, in Pueblo
County on Saturday. Later, off Hobie Cat Road, near the North Shore Marina
at Pueblo Reservoir, I saw two juvenile* Sabine's Gulls* way far out on the
water, not sure if these are part of the group from West Fishing Road or
not. I'm missing some regular birds in Colorado this year (that I don't
usually miss), thanks to Margie, I finally saw a Sage Thrasher this year in
Colorado, at Hobie Cat Road today as well.

The dark-backed gull at Cherry Creek is neither a Great Black-backed Gull
which is very rare this time of year or a Kelp Gull which is orders of
magnitude more rare. It is instead the much more expected Lesser
Black-backed Gull. The mantle is a shade paler then the primaries which
would not be the case for either GBBG or KEGU. The leg color is yellow
ruling out GBBG. KEGU as greenish yellow legs. Walbek photographed it today
and concurs on LBBG.

Subject: [cobirds] Huerfano County Update - Red-necked Phalarope, Sabine's Gull
Hello All,

Been really quiet here in the back of beyond Huerfano County, but this
morning while walking Scooter we found 1 Red-necked Phalarope and 3
Sabine's Gull at Wahatoya State Wildlife Area.

The phalarope is new for me here in Huerfano County.

Will be posting photos to cobirds Facebook page.

Subject: [cobirds] DFO Monthly Program - 9/23
Monday, September 23
*There’s No Sex Like Insects*
Mike Weissmann, PhD

DFO monthly programs are held at the Unity Spiritual Center of Denver, 3021
S. University Blvd, Denver. Programs begin at 7 PM.

Colorado entomologist Mike Weissmann will take our DFO audience on an
entertaining look at the wild, wondrous, and even wacky world of "bug sex”
at the September DFO monthly program. It’s a peek into the fascinating and
often bizarre mating and reproductive practices of insects and their
relatives.

Come learn that plants with yellow flowers are the “singles' bar” for
soldier beetles . . . and that insects attract mates with everything from
flashing lights (lightning bugs), colors and patterns (butterflies),
pheromones, sounds and claws. Mike will explore and explain the varied
methods of insect mating and reproduction, he will also bring some special
guests – live arthropods.

Weissmann is chief entomologist for Vector Disease Control International.
His current research focuses on Colorado mosquitoes and the West Nile Virus
they can carry. He also presents insect-related educational programs to
audiences of all ages, including the award- winning “Dr. Mike’s Bag of
Bugs.”

He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biology at the University
of Colorado Boulder and his doctorate in entomology from Colorado State
University, where he continues to serve as an affiliate faculty member. He
also is an adjunct curator at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural
History and a department associate in the entomology collection at the
Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Weissmann has published a variety of
technical articles about insect taxonomy, biology, and behavior and is
co-author of popular guides to insects in regional parks and monuments.

Thank you for confirming my confusion on this one! I'll have to go back
today with charged batteries and hope for some good luck!

Hope more people go out to confirm...

Yes, my husband and I spent 20 minutes staring at this gull through our
scope & saw yellowish legs when he finally scratched his head. We reported
it as a Lesser Black-backed Gull, but we were very troubled by the complete
lack of streaking on the head and neck and by the very black mantle. It had
a pure white head. Also, the size was about 50% larger than the nearby
Ring-billed Gulls, which is not consistent with a Lesser Black-backed Gull
at 21 inches. Sadly, no photos. Some gull expert needs to go to Pelican
Point. Candice Johnson, Denver
