Thanks, everyone, for the feedback (privately). I'm leaning toward either
taking my students to the Platte in downtown Denver to do the genuine urban
nature walk: mallard, pigeon, starling? Or we'll stay local to DU. It
doesn't sound like Cherry Creek will be a great fit for us.

Thanks again,

Hi there.

I'm considering bring a small class of DU students to Cherry Creek State
Park tomorrow as part of my "Urban Wilds" course experience. Can anyone
tell me if (1) there are open, bathroom facilities at the swimming beach
and (2) if ducks are visible from the beach with only binoculars? I'm not
looking for rarities or anything like that, but the opportunity to look at
ducks with some beginner birders. But I don't know if there's a shelf of
ice keeping ducks farther out in the water.

Subject: [cobirds] Field workshop announcement: Christmas Bird Count primer, Sun., Dec. 8, Boulder County
Hello, everybody.

As most of us know, the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) season is right around
the corner, with dozens of CBCs scheduled all over the state. The CBC
season is, for many birders, "the most wonderful time of the year," but how
do you get started? And how do you keep up with recent changes--especially
in regard to synchronizing CBC reporting with eBird best practices? Get the
answers to those and other matters by participating in a Colorado CBC Field
Workshop this coming Sunday, December 8, 2019, starting at 1pm. We will get
underway at the observation deck at Greenlee Preserve. The weather looks to
be wonderful--sunny and calm, with temps in the lower 50s.

The workshop is sponsored by the City of Lafayette, and will be hosted by
Carl Bendorf and Yours Truly. The event is free and open to the public; no
RSVP req'd, but feel free to reach out to Carl and me with any questions.
Expect to walk a mile or two on wide, well-graded trails that may be
somewhat sloppy--although surely better than they are right now! All are
welcome--children and families and general curiosity-seekers especially so.
Bring binocs, cameras, and smartphones if you have them; but those things
aren't necessary.

See you on Sunday!

Ted Floyd
Lafayette, Boulder County

Subject: [cobirds] 75th CBRC Report
COBirders,

The Fall 2019 issue of Colorado Birds that is now available online contains
the 75th Report of the Colorado Bird Records Committee. The highlight of
the report documents 4 new species that have been added to the state list,
which now stands at 511 species. They are:

Pink-footed Goose: The bird was found by Steve Mlodinow last December east
of Longmont, and spent most of the winter at Milavec Res in Frederick. This
bird was seen by many observers, or the mob !!


[image: P-f Goose.jpg]

Barnacle Goose: A bird seen on and off also at Milavec Res. in Frederick
(photo by Ben Sampson) for 10 days in mid-January 2019, first identified by
Klarissa Lawrence. Also accepted was a report of a bird briefly seen at
Aurora Res. only on 9 January, 2018 by Steve Mlodinow.

[image: Barn Goose.png]

White-tailed Kite: A bird was briefly seen and beautifully photographed on
27 May, 2019 by Jill Smith a few miles northwest of Holly in the SE corner
of the state. It was good to finally document this species in Colorado,
which had been expected to occur here for some years.

[image: W-t Kite.jpg]

Yellow-green Vireo: A bird was briefly seen only on 25 June, 2019 by Mark
Peterson at Two Buttes dam, which is between Lamar and Springfield in
southeast CO. This species was unexpected in CO because usually it is a
rare visitor only to the southern tier of US states.

[image: Y-g Vireo.jpg]

Full details on these sightings, and 105 other reports, can be seen by
looking at the new Colorado Birds issue now online.

As of 8:25 this morning, the Tundra Swans are nowhere to be seen on
Harriman Lake. The wind is really howling, so most of the birds there are

The six Tundra Swans were sleeping on the ice at the west end of Harriman

COBirders,

Yesterday on Long Pond, Larimer, 7 Bald Eagles were on the ice. At one point 4 were in the air together dive bombing an injured goose In the water. Eventually one of the eagles got the goose in its talons by the neck and part way out of the water but then dropped it.

Miraculously, the goose survived to live another day.

Subject: [cobirds] Partner WFO rare bird analysis
Cobirders,

CFO's partner organization, Western Field Ornithologists, has just
published a book, *The Birds of Gambell and St. Lawrence Island*. Searching
for one more North American record, many of us from CFO have braved the
brutal wind and stumbled across and into Gambell's pea gravel. Knowing what
those ball-bearing treks did to my own hip sockets, I fully admire Paul
Lehman's annual and sometimes semi-annual treks. Will this book inspire
you--or frighten you? Read the book and find out.

WFO News

The Birds of Gambell and St. Lawrence Island,
by Paul Lehman, is now available as an electronic version (perfect to take
along on that next trip):http://www.wfopublications.org/Gambell-order.html
<https://app.getresponse.com/click.html?x=a62b&lc=BDUbpb&mc=It&s=Toept6&u=BYPG&y=B&z=ECIg9Hl&>

<https://app.getresponse.com/click.html?x=a62b&lc=BDUbpb&mc=It&s=Toept6&u=BYPG&y=B&z=EJk8ynZ&>
This is the first complete and detailed treatment of our knowledge of the
birds of this region, from the early explor­ers through 2018. It is certain
to remain the definitive work on the ornithology of this fascinating island
for decades to come.

The book is beautifully illustrated with maps and more than 800 color
photo­graphs of the island and its habitats, and a majority of the bird
species, including many documentary photos of rare occurrences.

You will find detailed accounts of the 290 species that have been
documented on the island, which include a remarkable 19 first North
Ameri­can records.

Subject: [cobirds] Interesting Crow Observation, Estes Park, Larimer Co.
We're enjoying a nice wintry Thanksgiving visit at our place in Estes Park. 
I want to share an interesting observation.  On this very windy and cold Saturday morning I eschewed my usual morning walk down to buy the newspaper (a daily excuse to do some early birding) and drove instead.  On the way back to our home, I saw well over 20 American Crows in the road up ahead.  I assumed they were feeding on road kill, so I drove up slowly.  They flew off and all I could see was a large quantify of sand on the pavement, presumably spread by the highway folks after the 15 inches of snow we got on Monday/Tuesday.  My guess is that the crows were ingesting the sand as grit for their crops.  I have seen groups of small birds doing this on occasion, but it was very interesting first for me to see the highly social crows engaged in this communal behavior.

A DFO field trip this morning found 28 Red-breasted Mergansers on the Thornton Gravel Pond near 99th and Colorado Blvd.

On the river between 88th and the small dam were at least two male Barrow’s Goldeneyes. (Both species were spotted by Burke Angstman.)

Also along the river was a Harlan’s Red-tailed Hawk.

Subject: [cobirds] Turning Point in Kirtland's Warbler Conservation


Kirtland's Warbler faced extinction on their breeding grounds in Michigan
in the 1970s. For 40 years, volunteers
planted jack pines and biologists trapped and killed cowbirds, which were
parasitizing Kirtland nests.

Over the past 4 years, biologists have been removing the cowbird raps and
the amount of cowbird parasitism
has been very low!

https://www.birdwatchingdaily.com/news/conservation/cowbird-trapping-protect-kirtlands-warbler/

This is good news because the population of Kirtland's is now able to stand
on its own, at least as
regards cowbirds. The Mio Michigan community know birding tourism is a
cash cow, so they will
hopefully continue maintaining the breeding grounds with jack pines and
low-growing vegetation.

If you haven't been to Mio, Michigan (or the other community where Audubon
conducts tours), go!
You are virtually guaranteed to see Kirlands in May. Cheers for a
conservation success story.

This story was posted mid-summer, but I discovered it when cleaning out my
inbox!

Subject: [cobirds] Boulder County
All,

Having dug out of over 2' of snow on Tuesday, I ventured around Boulder
County this morning. There was a Greater White-fronted Goose on the south
side of Valmont Res, and a family of 5 Tundra Swans (2 adults, 3 juveniles)
happily swimming in the middle of Boulder Res. Lageman Res is mostly
frozen, and there were no geese at Dodd Res, so I went to the east part of
the county hoping to see a Longspur in with the Horned Larks. Instead, on
N 115th St south of Oxford Road I found 3 Gray-crowned Rosy-Finches eating
by the side of the road. I cannot remember seeing them this far east in
Boulder County before.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Peter Gent, Boulder.

Subject: [cobirds] Re: Red-necked Grebe,Larimer
No Red-necked Grebe at 3:15 today. There were 5 Common Golden-eye sleeping
in the small portion of open water. I think there is even less open water
now than there was earlier today, and the rapid loss of open water could
have caused the bird to move on; by tomorrow it might be completely frozen.
It might be worth checking other nearby bodies of water. I checked Swede
Lake on my way home, which was entirely frozen and had zero birds.

Subject: [cobirds] Snow Geese aglow in snow glow low over JeffCo
Just outside at 5:55 pm, fully dark with cloud cover letting a few stars
shine dimly through. Three big flocks of white geese flew south, passing
right over my home in a series, each with about 75-100 geese. Now, normally
I see geese as set against a sky with some light, whether blue sky or gray.
But these geese were aglow from below with glow from the new snow
reflecting streetlights and such from my neighborhood. It helped that they
were not very high, and it made for a most beautiful unexpected moment.
Several were calling individually, but there was no clamor.

I think they were *Snow Geese* by impression and sounds, and it seems most
unlikely for so many Ross's over JeffCo. My overall estimate is 250 birds.

Hello All,

I had a flock of approximately 40 gray-crowned rosy-finch visit my feeders

Not particularly rare, but a new property bird for me in Spring Gulch, NW
of Lyons.
Now up to 135 species, and about 27 inches of snow.
Other visitors: Cassin's Finch (at least 5), House Finch, Juncos galore,
Red-shafted Flicker,
American Goldfinch, Steller's Jay, Black-billed Magpie, and an unseen
raptor that keeps
chasing everyone off, but I haven't seen it.
Also no sign of rosy finches, although they often blow down here when Estes
Park gets
dumped on.

everything is gone and I can't spot a hawk, yet.
I'd invite everyone up but the street isn't plowed and is pretty much
impassable except for 4 wheel drive with a low 4 transmission. My neighbor

Subject: [cobirds] Lapland Longspur and Huge Goose Flock (Continues)/Weld
Hi all

Raptor Alley drive yielded the following on Sunday. Photos here,
http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/profile/admin, first two posts.

- Rough-legged Hawk - 1
- Red-tailed Hawk - 6
- Prairie Falcon - 2
- Northern Harrier - 1
- American Kestrel - 7
- Golden Eagle - 1
- Ferruginous Hawk - 2
- Bald Eagle - 1
- Lapland Longspur - 4-6 (between Weld CR 55/57 along 124)

The huge five-goose flock continues at Neff Lake. Thousands of
Canada/Cackling, probably close to four-digit Snows with some Ross's and
three Greater White-fronted. Flock has been here last two weekends I
suspect they know they won't get shot at Neff Lake. :-)

Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Subject: [cobirds] Canyon Towhee, Arapahoe
A Canyon Towhee has come into a feeder 2 days in October, now 2 days in NOvember, in the Denver Tech Center area. Its appearance seems tied to snow storms, and the feeder owner doesn't have any way to predict when or if it will appear. She has provided an excellent photo (attached).

Subject: [cobirds] Yellow Warbler in Pueblo 11/24
While birding with David Tonnessen and Jim Merritt this morning in Pueblo,
we saw and photographed a female YELLOW WARBLER, by the Arkansas River at
Cottonwood Picnic Area, at Lake Pueblo State Park on 24 November. I think
this is a late date for the Pueblo Area. We found it, by hearing a warbler
chip from across the river. The bird showed itself, and came over to the
south side of the river. Jim got excellent photos. It will be interesting
to see if it hangs around or not. Two Rusty Blackbirds were feeding on the
rocks here as well. If it is the same two birds, that have been seen in
Pueblo recently, they are wandering a lot, from east of Reservoir Drive,
all the way west to nearly Pueblo Reservoir dam. Trying to guess where
they will be next, is anyone's guess.

I staked out the Trilby Rd. today from 7:30 to 8:30 and no sign of the Gyr.
However, others have told me that Sunday is likely no the best for the
bird; since the landfill is closed and there is no one to stir up the
trash, the gull activity is basically zero.
Good luck,

From: Josh Bruening <87211jjb...>
Subject: [cobirds] Timnath Reservoir-Larimer County
All,

I finally got to spend extended quality time birding Timnath Reservoir
today to follow up on my last post about the spot. I birded there for 4
1/2 hours from late morning today to late afternoon and felt like I covered
it pretty well. First off, what an absolutely gorgeous day to be outside!
Mild temps and zero wind. The water was like glass. I first worked the
west end dam from north to south and back scoping through the geese and
mergansers hoping to find some variety. 8 Bald Eagles kept the birds alert
and moving throughout the afternoon. After the Eagles moved all of the
geese onto the water, I was able to carefully scrutinize the flock that
still numbers around 5000 birds. The expected 5 species of geese were
present. Cacklers were the most numerous to the surprise of no one.
Canada, Greater White-fronted (9), Snows (6), and a lone Ross's Goose
rounded out the rest. One dark juvenile Snow Goose had me going for a
moment thinking it was a Brant. There were 6 hybrids in the mix. 5 of
them were all Snows (bill size and grin patches) crossed with either
Cacklers or Canadas from what I could tell. There is one hybrid there that
to me was a complete head-scratcher. Looked like it had Canada or Cackler
genes but I couldn't tell if it was mixed with a Greater White-fronted
cross or even Greylag. It seemed larger than a GWF would be and on land the
legs looked more yellow than orange. I think this may be the same bird
that Cole W saw earlier in the week but it was some sort of funky looking.
Very cool! The goose sp. option in Ebird works well for people like me who
don't know much about goose hybridization.

There were still oodles of Common Mergs. Also still, very little variety
of ducks in general. Nothing rare in duck land. 1000+ gulls remain. Same
mix save for an adult Mew Gull which was the best bird of the day. I found
the Mew Gull in the NE corner of the res after walking across the north dam
and working the mudflats viewing the swim beach from the west on the
mudflats in the middle of the res.

Checklist w/ Mew Gull photo link here:

Subject: [cobirds] American Golden-Plover Union Res Weld
I made a stop at Union Reservoir on the way down to Denver this afternoon to see if I could find any ducks or raptors. I came across a nice group of a variety of species including various yet distant poorly lit geese, ducks, killdeer ect. I noticed a plover type bird and realized an American Golden Plover had been seen here in previous days. This seems to be the same bird. This is the, from what I understand, the Northeast end of the res. Let it be known I would have had no chance at identifying this bird as more than a black bellied/american golden due to distance had it not been seen here very recently. Ebird report and bad photos coming soon.

Also you know the busyness (and laziness) of college is real when a Gyrfalcon shows up five minutes near your house in Larimer county and it takes you a week to find out. Maybe next time.

Subject: [cobirds] Common vs Yellow-billed Loon
Hi:

Two days ago I was birding Cherry Creek Reservoir looking for the Yellow-billed Loon that was previously reported. About half way across the southern portion of the reservoir a loon was spotted. Because of heat waves the only impression that registered with me was the head was light brownish and the bill, appearing through shimmering light, was light colored.

I checked with Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Birds of North America series (an excellent resource) to see what the latest word was in distinguishing the difference between the Common and Yellow-billed Loon. Here is a brief summery of what I found

Because of sexual and age variation in size between the two loon species, it would be challenging just using size as a distinguishing characteristic for either loon. Also because of the subtle variation in plumage for juveniles and non-breeding adults for both loons relying on appearance is tricky although could be highly suggestive for the Yellow-billed

"Only characteristic diagnostic in all plumages and ages is color of culmen (ridge of upper mandible). In Common Loon in winter plumage this ridge and about 5 mm on either side is black (in breeding plumage the entire bill is black), but in Yellow-billed Loon at least the distal half and usually distal two-thirds is whitish-yellow" (Common Loon BNA series)

Subject: [cobirds] Longmont on 20Nov2019 (Weld and Boulder)
The American Golden-Plover first reported by Steve Mlodinow is still in the nw corner of Union Res (Weld). Thank you. No photos due to distance and lighting. Large groups of Bonaparte's Gulls and Killdeer, also.

I stopped briefly in the Barberry/Staghorn Drive portion of the neighborhood se of Airport Road jct Nelson Road where good warblers have been feeding on pine aphids last fall and earlier this fall but detected nothing of interest.

At least two Swamp Sparrows, maybe three, were at Golden Ponds w of Hover/3rd Ave. intersection. From the Golden Ponds parking lot go west past the easternmost pond then take a left and follow the paved bike trail along the west side of the easternmost pond, continue south across the bridge over St. Vrain Crk and when the trail forks take the right fork toward the foothills (southwest). Proceed about 100 yards. The marsh s of the bike trail at this point is where the Swamp Sparrows were. Song Sparrow and Marsh Wren also in that marsh.

[cid:4a7eb264-ddbe-4502-8795-d4a298732ade]

One Long-tailed Duck is still at Lagerman Res., beautiful bird. Like all Long-tailed Ducks, it matches no pics in the field guides. Mostly diving at the east end.

Subject: [cobirds] Plum Creek Delta at Chatfield - Long-billed Dowitcher/Greater White-fronted Goose
The 2 Long-billed Dowitchers continue in the Plum Creek Delta at Chatfield
this morning 11/19. There was a Wilson’s Snipe with them that made for a
nice comparison. Almost the same size with the same sewing machine feeding
type, but the LBDO has longer legs and the WISN showed the long light
colored strips on a dark back.

I then noticed some orange legs on one of the hundreds of white faced
geese. Greater White-fronted Goose was a Douglas county bird for me. It was
very near where the LBDO and WISN were feeding on the mud flats.

EBird does not show a later staying LBDO for Chatfield. Wonder if they will
stay for the CBC or get pushed out by the moisture that is coming in the
next 2 days?

Subject: [cobirds] Pueblo rare bird update 11/19 (no warbler or tanager)
Several birders searched for the Blackbiurnian Warbler that Alan Ketchum
found yesterday and the male Summer Tanager that the DFO field trip found
yesterday, neither bird seemed to be around. Maybe they are just late
migrants and decided to go south, instead of thinking about wintering
here. In the Blackburnian Warbler area, across the river to the north,
there was a Hermit Thrush and Harris's Sparrow seen. In the Summer Tanager
area, and east toward the Pueblo Nature Center, there was a Say's Phoebe,
Harris's Sparrow, Lesser Goldfinch, Common Loon, American White Pelican
were seen today. Pueblo Reservoir's South Shore Marina, had 1st year
Glaucous Gull, adult Great Black-backed Gull, several Lesser Black-backed
Gulls, Iceland (Thayer's Gulls), and likely a couple hybrid gulls. Pacific
and Common Loons, American White Pelicans were around as well.

Subject: [cobirds] Re: Broad-tailed Hummingbirds(?), Boulder County
After listening to the chips of all the hummingbirds likely to occur here, they sounded most like Broad-tailed hummingbirds.

I am so frustrated at not being able to see them, because I listened to them for several minutes. I was afraid to move because they were sitting so close to my head in the trees!

The catalpa and Washington Hawthorne trees have so many pods and berries, respectively, that it was impossible to see them, even though they were fairly close to me.

I hope someone else in the area sees them!

CObirders,
I was standing in my front yard at
10 am when two hummingbirds flew into my crabapple and catalpa trees. They were chipping loudly. I instantly recognized the chips as hummingbird sounds. The chips were very similar to those of the Broad-tailed Hummingbird, as recorded by Sibley.

I stood there listening to them for several minutes but never saw them before they flew away.

Another crazy thing is, a Western Tanager was seen and photographed in the
same general area on Saturday! I am sure no Colorado Christmas Bird Count
has have two tanagers on count day, it they are here this late, they might
be thinking about wintering, maybe the Blackburnian Warbler has the same
idea. The Pueblo Reservoir CBC on 14 December, should be interesting if
some of the recent goodies stay and more things show up in the next few
weeks.

I was curious about prior November records of *Summer Tanager* for Colorado
in eBird. I see that there are only two other November records for the
state in eBird: 8 Nov 2006 at Colorado Springs, El Paso and 4 Nov 2015 at
Littleton, Jefferson. So it is pretty nice for November! Or anytime, of
course, as it was an all red male! Many of the trees near the south end of
the gravel pit are Russian olives, so maybe it was feeding on some fruit,
but we did not see it foraging. I should mention it was first spotted by
Karen Strong. We did manage a documentary photo or two.

Expanding beyond November, my eBird search showed 3 Colorado records for
December, at Lyons, Grand Junction and Penrose. Looking back to October
adds just 6 more records in eBird for that month. So the late fall
(Oct-Dec) total is 12 records for the state. One on Jan 1 should be added
to this, though, as that might be fairly treated as a late migrant, maybe.
So 13.

Subject: [cobirds] Timnath Reservoir-Larimer County
All,

To echo Dave, and with all of the posts lamenting the dearth of waterfowl
North of I-70 and west of 85, I thought I'd share some thoughts as well.
Indeed, many reservoirs Dave mentioned in and around the Fort Collins,
Wellington, Windsor areas seem to be experiencing lower numbers than
usual. The Mallards on Poudre #3 in Wellington have been impressive. And
#4 seems to be holding good ducks as well. Other than some Goldeneye and
Eared Grebes and Shovelers, Windsor Lake usually has far more birds. I
went to Boyd Lake, Houts and Equalizer Reservoirs on Friday and other than
a couple of good groups of Wigeon, it's pretty scarce other than geese.
Though, I did not go to the southern end of Boyd which seems to be where
most of the ducks have been congregating. Lake Loveland has been highly
variable. Grebes have seemingly moved on.

Timnath Reservoir has not been experiencing this phenomenon. At least not
with diving ducks. Specifically, Common Merganser numbers are higher than
I've seen there. Dabblers are there but not in great numbers. I suspect
the extremely low water levels killed off some of the vegetation that would
normally be there in the shallows. I have stopped by Timnath about every
other day for the last two weeks. Gizzard Shad and other possible feeder
fish are more than abundant. I have seen hundreds of instances of
successful dives in recent weeks. I even watched a Bald Eagle hunting WITH
the gulls and Mergansers. I stopped counting Common Mergs at 3000 this
morning and it was probably between 4000-5000. Mind you, I tend to be
ultra-conservative with the numbers I estimate. A few Red-breasted Mergs
were in the group and I picked out a Hooded Merg as well. DC Cormorants
and Pelicans remain in decent numbers. A smattering of Redhead, Lesser
Scaup, and Common Goldeneye get lost in MergMania. I did find one Male
Barrow's Goldeneye in the mix on Friday and again this morning. Along with
the divers, a 5000+ flock of Cacklers/Canadas are finding sustenance in the
nearby corn/ag fields and resting on the water. Nick K had 8 GWF geese
there last week and I saw at least 5 of the same birds later in the day. A
few Snows and Ross's and hybrids as well. And then there are the GULLS.
3000+ at least. There were large parts of the shoreline this morning that
looked snow covered for the gulls. They of course are letting the Mergs do
the majority of the hunting for them. California, Ring-billed, Herring
are represented in great numbers. Several Lesser Black-backed and Thayer's
are present as well. Surprisingly, I have seen no Bonaparte's there.

So...If you're desperate to spend several hours scoping a reservoir,
Timnath is where it's at for the moment up here in the northern tier.
Bring a chair. I haven't had the time to spend more than an hour there and
frankly it hasn't been enough and I feel like you'd need 4 hours to say you
put in a solid effort. Scope absolutely required. Every pass with my
scope yielded something I didn't see the pass before. The sun is far
enough south at this point that viewing from either the west side parking
lot or northeastern side Wildwing Swim Beach works in the morning.
Afternoon is definitely better from the west.

Perhaps if there are good waterfowl numbers still sitting north of us, this
system moving in later this week will push more down to us. Birds I
wouldn't be surprised to find or hear someone found there beyond the
expected: Brant, more Scoters, Red-throated or Yellow-billed Loons, Mew
Gull, Glaucous Gull, more Kittiwakes, Jaeger sp. (I know it's late
but...). Maybe the Barnacle and Pink-footed will stop 35 miles further
north this winter...One can hope.

Bird is the word!

Subject: [cobirds] Jefferson/Arapahoe South Platt Reservoir
Hello again,
I have had a few people reach out and ask where the county line separates
the reservoir at South Platt Park. I have heard that others have been asked
as well.
The Jefferson County side is much smaller than most people think.
There are some numbered blue markers on the south side of the path. Follow
those to number 96. A little after marker 96 and before 97, there is a post
on the fence line (north side of the path) that has Jefferson and Arapahoe
marked with arrows. From that post to the light posts on the east end of
the RV storage lot is the line.

Subject: [cobirds] Pacific Loon at Hamilton Reservoir (Larimer), gyr musings, and a few reports on other reservoirs n of Fort Collins on 18Nov2019
Not sure if this Pacific Loon is a continuing individual or a new one. Pretty windy up there this morning, and the loon was relatively close (75 yards nw of the Overlook), compared to all the way on the north side below or east of the tall stack like usual. Photo below is poor digiscope but maybe serves as documentation.

[cid:95a7a58f-cc55-4857-a7a3-6f16bf517bc0]

Most of the waterfowl, except for grebes, were hugging the west, northwest and north shores. Nothing unusual, no White Pelicans or cormorants that I could make out, and the Bonaparte's Gulls present in good numbers 10 days ago appear to have moved on.

Hamilton Res used to be one of the "Thanksgiving" hotspots in the whole state (back when the word "hotspot" meant something other than what it does in eBird lingo), with all three scoters possible, long-tailed ducks, multiple loon species, mergansers in numbers difficult to estimate. Brandon must throw out better bread crumbs in Pueblo than we do in Larimer. Seriously, I think the fishery at Hamilton has changed over the years, with small food fish being in much smaller numbers. That water is also notorious for high levels of heavy metals traceable to coal used at the Rawhide Power Plant. Mostly unrelated to birds and their food, Dr. Ron Ryder used to tell me when he did weekly bird counts for the overseeing Platte River Power Authority that Hamilton Reservoir hosted, besides schooling shad, the biggest fish in CO: Asian grass carp introduced to graze algal growth. Algae prospers in the warm water turbine discharge and those pig-out carp sometimes exceeded 100 pounds! Not sure if they are still up there or not. I used to see dead ones, resembling albino dolphins, floating along the rocks below the Overlook but haven't seen one in years. Imagine the eyes of a scavenging gull that discovered one of those.

Hamilton Reservoir is also where Dr. Ryder discovered a Gyrfalcon back in 1998. I saw that bird take down a white-cheeked goose back before cacklers were split from Canadas. I suspect that goose was of the smaller species, and it remains the only food item I'm aware of for a Colorado gyr. Hint, hint. Will somebody please confirm the current gyr at the Larimer Landfill is getting gulls, or pigeons, or ravens, or crows, or magpies, or starlings, or rats, or prairie dogs, or ramen noodles, or whatever it is that would be attractive enough to put an individual (or two) of that magnificent species at that site two winters in a row. Reports that simply state it wasn't there, or it's unpredictable, or it was on top of a big power pole and flew off at such and such date and time, mine included, seem mundane for a bird that has to have super interesting behavior.

Douglas Res had very little this morning. Northern Shrike immature flew into the housing development se of the res from just w of 60Rd/15Rd intersection. I did NOT walk to far north end to see whether recent Tundra Swan remains.

North Poudre #4 had very few birds, in contrast to recent weeks.

North Poudre #3 had a good number of geese including a small group of 6-8 "white" geese, with all the waterfowl being packed along the west and north shores.

Subject: [cobirds] Summer Tanager near Pueblo West Gravel Pit, Pueblo Co
Our DFO trip just had an adult male Summer Tanager in the trees along the south side of the Pueblo West Gravel Pit. Seems a pretty nice find for late Nov.

*TRIP #6*

*JE CANYON RANCH REDUX *

*TWO NIGHTS AT THE GORGEOUS NATURE CONSERVANCY (TNC) PROPERTY IN
SOUTHEASTERN COLORADO*


Leaders: Mammologist, Carron Meaney and Biologist, Scott Severs

Date: Friday-Monday, May 22-24

Fees: $150 per person, you will be camping.

Limited to 10 people.

The nearly 50,000 acre JE Canyon ranch was purchased by TNC and the Terra
Foundation in 2015. It has since been sold, but it still co-managed by TNC
until the end of 2020. This is our last chance to visit this astounding
property. It is bordered on three sides by 700 foot deep canyons of the
Purgatoire River and remote Chacuaco Creek. The ranch includes important
short grass prairie habitat, mile high upland mesas, red rock canyons, juniper
and pinons forests, remnant ponderosa patches, and numerous springs and
pools.

More than 850 species of flora & fauna have been identified, making it one
of the most biodiverse ranches in the state which has been well documented
by TNC, the Colorado Natural Heritage Program and Denver Botanic Gardens.
JE is considered one of the most iconic ranches in Colorado, featured in
John Fielder’s “Ranches of Colorado” and in “Colorado: Lost Places and
Forgotten Words.” It is critical habitat for the state’s largest population
of bighorn sheep as well as elk, mule deer, mountain lion and numerous bird
species including a highly important population of Long-billed Curlews.

Carron received her PhD on pika scent-marking behavior. She served as
Curator of Mammals at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science for 10 years,
then ran her own wildlife consulting business for 11 years. Her expertise
on Preble’s meadow jumping , helped to draft the plan that would remove it
from the Endangered Species list. She is currently semi-retired, and
continues her work on various projects locally and abroad. Scott is a
biologist for the City of Longmont, a great birder and insect aficionado,
who previously worked for Carron.


We will have a pot-luck the first evening and you will be responsible for all
other meals. BCAS will provide drinks and snacks. The ranch is a 4.5 hour
drive via I-25, then 1 hour on dirt and gravel roads.



*TRIP #7*


*BANDING BABY KESTRELS*

*SCOTT RASHID*


Leader: Scott Rashid

Date: Early Evening, 1st half of June, 2020, depending on the birds

Location: TBD

Limited to 12 people

Donation: $50.00

American Kestrels stand out as not only our smallest falcon, but by any
measure, the most attractive. Although not a species of concern, in many
areas population trends are indicating troubling to downright frightening
declines. With that in mind, Scott Rashid, Director of the Colorado Avian
Research and Rehabilitation Institute, has installed many Kestrel nest
boxes to help maintain sustainable local numbers and provide a source of
birds for expansion into abandoned or underused ranges.

Learn about their courtship displays, breeding, brooding, when the eggs
hatch and how and what the young are fed. Scott will talk about what
scientists are positing as the primary threats to their long term success.
Learn if your property might be suitable for a nest box and a video cam.

The banding will take place in the northern part of Boulder County. Boulder
County Audubon will provide drinks and treats for the participants. Bring
your camera for great photo opportunities. Date and place to be determined;
it’s up to the Kestrels!

Scott is an artist as well as a licensed bander and rehabilitator. He has
authored and illustrated the following books, all of which are available
through him: *Small Mountain Owls*, *The Great Horned Owl, an In-Depth
Study and Northern Goshawk, The Gray Ghost. *His newest, published in
October of 2019: * Exploring The World Of The Barn Owl*.


*TRIP #**8*


*BANDING BABY BARN OWLS*

*Scott Rashid*


Leader: Scott Rashid

Date: Early evening, last third of June, 2020, depending on the birds

Location: TBD

Limited to 12 people

Fee: $50.00

Back by popular demand: In 2014, Scott Rashid, of the Center for Avian
Research and Rehabilitation Institute, (CARRI), embarked on an experiment.
Would there be more Barn Owls in Boulder County if there were more breeding
cavities? With grants from Boulder County Audubon and others, Scott began
installing nest boxes on private properties in northern Boulder County.
Since then, dozens of baby Barn Owls have fledged and been banded.
Thousands of people have addictively watched one of his live web cams to
follow the fascinating processes of courtship, breeding, brooding, hatching
and the feeding of these enigmatic birds.

Join us early one evening to watch Scott band the nestlings from one of
these sites on private property. Scott will talk about the biology of this
very special species and the amazing places in which some of his bands have
been recovered. You will have charming photo ops and perhaps the
opportunity to even hold one of the young.

Scott is an artist as well as a licensed bander and rehabilitator. He has
authored and illustrated the following books, all of which are available
through him:* Small Mountain Owls, The Great Horned Owl, an In-Depth Study
and Northern Goshawk, The Gray Ghost. *His newest, published in October of
2019: * Exploring The World Of The Barn Owl.*

*TRIP #11*


*SOME BIRDS, MOSTLY HERPS *

*LINCOLN COUNTY, COLORADO*

*JOHN VANDERPOEL*


Leader, John Vanderpoel

Date: Saturday and Sunday, October 10 and 11, 2020

Location: Based in Limon, CO

Fee: $125

Limited to 8

Lincoln County is incredibly rich in reptiles with 11 species of snakes,
including 2 kinds of rattlers, 2 species of skink, Painted Turtles and 4
types of lizards, most notably the Short-horned, a species of special
concern. October is the month when snakes heading to their winter
hibernacula become easier to spot along dirt roads in eastern Colorado.

We will leave from Boulder on Saturday morning, and in early afternoon,
visit a private ranch north of Limon to look for reptiles and birds. During
this late migration period, we are likely to find raptors, sapsuckers,
lingering warblers and wintering sparrows. After breakfast on Sunday
morning, we head east to work the gravel roads for migrating snakes and
reptiles. We will drive home later in the afternoon..

Although John is best known as an elite birder, he is passionate about
herpetology and makes several trips a year searching out various species in
their preferred Colorado habitats.

You are responsible for the cost of your night in the hotel as well as all
meals. Most of Limon’s hotels serve breakfast to enjoy as it won’t be
necessary to start early on Sunday. BCAS will provide snacks and soft
drinks. *We expect all participants to listen carefully and obey all
directions from John concerning approaching any snakes. You will risk a,
“time out” if we feel that you are endangering yourself or others!*

Subject: [cobirds] Greater White-fronted Goose, 11/17/2019 ,Fort Logan Cemetery,Denver County
In Fort Logan Cemetery today, I saw 1, immature Greater-White-fronted Goose, among hoards of Cackling/Canada Geese. The Cemetery is off of S. Sheridan, just south of W. Quincy. Right after you enter the Cemetery off of S.. Sheridan, there is a large pond on the south side. The bird was seen feeding around the lake on grass and then it disappeared into the headstones, while still feeding. If you continue further east on the main entrance road you come to a second pond on your right. This pond can have gobs of Geese on it also. At this body of water, I got to watch a f. Hooded Merganser try to stuff [litterally], in her bill, a crayfish. This took quite a while.

As most of you know the Geese at this Cemetery can be spread out all over the place. I saw the bird at 3:30pm.

During the week funerals occur and watch out for other cars,

Happy Birding!!

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Missing Waterfowl, Jim Hamm Nature Area, Longmont Boulder Co
Jay at al,
My assumption for the situation you describe would be diving ducks are absent because some of their staples, predominately animal items like crayfish, snails and small fish (like gizzard shad), are not present in sufficient/historical amounts. Of course, the animals diving ducks feed on depend on bottom of the food chain things like plants, especially the "pond weeds" in the genus Potamogeton. As for dabbling ducks, they eat mostly plant material. If both diving and dabbling ducks/geese are absent, this may indicate an issue that killed plant life (probably not permanently but maybe for one growing season). That issue could be anything from water level, water temperature or a pollutant. I do not think the issue is the apartment construction in terms of noise/commotion. If the construction did something to interfere with inflow, pollute inflow, that might be a different matter. The blackbirds depend on the cattails around the edge of the lake. Cattails are notorious for being pretty tolerant of conditions other water-loving plants can't handle. Don't put me on the stand, but these would be my thoughts.

For what it's worth, Windsor Lake has far fewer diving waterfowl this autumn than normal, and I have assumed rather than things just being late, the issue is a lack of schooling food fish (i.e., shad). In the world of CO water birds, "money" is shad and crayfish. Follow the money by finding the gulls. Where the thieving gulls are is where the diving ducks/grebes/loons are, largely because that's where the shad/crayfish are.

All:

Wanted to pose a question to the group on possible explanations for the missing (or severe lack) of waterfowl I HAVEN'T been seeing at Jim Hamm Nature Area on the east side of Longmont this fall. Based on personal observations for the past five years and the historical data from ebird https://ebird.org/barchart?r=L282352&yr=all&m= , there are "usually" many hundreds (500+) across multiple species on the water in the fall. This year though? Nada, zilch, goose eggs. Other than a few Pied-billed grebes, coots and a few dabblers, it's strangely empty.

There was the expected bumper crop (50k+ birds) of red-winged/yellow-headed blackbirds, grackles and starlings in late Sept and early Oct, but the waterfowl are MIA. Two variables this year that may or may not have an impact are: an increase in the water level and new, multi-strory apartment construction across the road on the SW corner of County Line Rd & 17th St.

Curious to ask if others are seeing a lack of waterfowl at your normally reliable local wetland? I'm not sure if the new buildings across the street are scaring them off, or if something else is going on?

Subject: [cobirds] Lagerman (Boulder) Long-tailed Ducks 11/17
Hi Everyone,



Today 11/17 I saw two Long-tailed Ducks at Lagerman Reservoir in Longmont.
The brighter of the two came close enough for me to get some digiscope
photos, and Peter Burke got some much better images with a real camera.
Looks like there's just one face smudge, not two, which points to a female.
The duller one looks to be a young bird of undetermined sex, but it has just
one face smudge, too. The brighter one is staying toward the NE corner, the
duller one toward the SE corner, but they spent a lot of time underwater. It
would be fun to know what they're eating down there. I speculated maybe
crayfish, but there could be other edibles on the bottom.

I'm guessing all the changes you describe have affected their food supply

Hello All,

I want to get the word out that the North Jeffco CBC has been added to the
list of Christmas bird count circles.
If you are interested in helping with this count, we would like to have you
join us. The count will be held Friday, December 20th.

Last year a group of 12 of us got together for a preliminary count. We feel
it went well.
We ended up with 85 species on the day of the count and 95 for the week.

Please feel free to email me with any questions.

Thank you,

Subject: [cobirds] Lagerman Res (Boulder) Long-tailed Duck 11/16
Hi Everyone, This afternoon 11/16, I saw a male Long-tailed Duck along the east shore of Lagerman Reservoir in Longmont. I cannot confirm rumors of a second bird. Also of interest was a male Ruddy Duck still in alternate plumage, but sans blue in the bill. This seems late. Mark Miller Longmont, CO Sent via the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, an AT&T 5G Evolution capable smartphone

Subject: [cobirds] More likely a hybrid snow/?
We went back to Dodd Reservoir to look at the goose, and with a scope, the bill is small, dark and no large gape. The head is all white with some brown speckles at the back and the body is more brownish than blue gray. Topi and I think it’s more likely a hybrid of some flavor; i have some digiscoped photos I will try to upload or will put on a later eBird list. Any ideas appreciated.

Subject: [cobirds] Gyr Larimer 11/16
This morning around 9:15 my sister Connie and I observed the Gyrfalcon
on one of the power pole on Trilby by the dump. It stayed long enough for
us to get a good scope view to verify that it was not a Prairie Falcon. We
had tried earlier around 8:30 but did not see it.

Subject: [cobirds] ID help on a goose sp., Larimer
Hey Birders,
I photographed this goose at Lake Loveland in Larimer County that is very
interesting.
My ebird checklist <https://ebird.org/checklist/S61493679> has the photos
and my thoughts about the bird's ancestry.
I would appreciate any feedback on what others think about this goose, and
even if it not identifiable, I thought I would share the photos just so
others can enjoy this beautiful bird!
Joe Kipper,
Fort Collins

Subject: [cobirds] Late-migrating Sandhill Cranes, Denver County
Apologies for this late posting after eBird flagged my Thursday sighting
(just filed this afternoon) of 66 Sandhill Cranes circling at midday Nov.
14, high above Denver City Park and the edge of downtown. I heard the
telltale rattle/bugle overhead of a few in the flock shortly before 1 p.m.
After circling for a couple of minutes, the birds regrouped and continued
south.

Subject: [cobirds] Surf and Black Scoters-Arapahoe Cnty-S. Platte Res.
The Surf and Black Scoters continue this morning in the middle of the South
Platte Reservoir. They stayed very close to each other and dove together
most of the time. The Surf is a juvenile I guess since it has a white belly
and Sibley says all juvenile Scoters have white bellies. The Black is
either a juvenile or female because of the big white patch on the face.

Nice to have all 3 Scoters in this part of town.

Subject: [cobirds] Dunlin in Bent County
Birders,

I found a Dunlin today in the catchment basin below the dam at John
Martin Reservoir. It moved between the two gravel bars in the basin. It
loosely associated with 12 Greater Yellowlegs and 11 Killdeer, both
unusual in these numbers at this time of year here. The Dunlin
cooperated, and was later seen by Stan Oswald.

Subject: [cobirds] Moderator note - CoBirds and posts on out-of-state topics
Dear CoBirders,

A couple of people asked why the Texas festival thread was interrupted. It
is helpful to occasionally recall the list rules and what options they do
offer for out-of-state bird reports. Here are the list rules, from the
Colorado Field Ornithologists page: https://cobirds.org/CFOPage.aspx?pg=2

I paste below, from that page, the points that pertain to out of state
reports. Note that reports of chasable rare birds in* neighboring states*
are permitted, as we enjoyed with the recent Bluetail occurrence in Wyoming
(#8 under What Can be Posted). Also, out-of-state (even out-of-country)
trip reports and photos may be posted to CoBirds with a one time post that
includes a link to the report or photos (#7 under What Not to Post). But
other discussion, and reports of rarities from more distant states are not
appropriate for the CoBirds list.











*What CAN be posted to COBirds?1. COBirds is a Google Group with over 1400
members for the discussion of Colorado birds. It's all about sharing the
fun of birding in Colorado.8. Interesting, rare and chaseable birds in
neighboring states can and should be posted to this list.What SHOULD NOT be
posted to COBirds?7. Trip lists and/or bird related travel reports from
outside of Colorado may not be posted on COBirds. If you want to share your
trip lists/reports from other locations, please post them on your personal
website and then send a single message to COBirds directing subscribers to
that location.8. Requests for out-of-state hotspots, travel tips, or
reference books.*

Thank you,

Looking at a non-breeding surf scoter currently at south platte res. It is associating with two ruddy ducks and seems to be working it’s way closer to the south shore along the county dividing line that runs through the lake.

Hi Ben

Your lifer list can be found at the 9 (I believe 9) World Birding
Centers-some fairly easy. King Ranch is home of the owl population.
Tropical Parula seen in multiple tour outings--found ours on personal
outing at Harlingen Lake (east side in trees and across the street in art
park)-also Yellow-throated and Tennessee.

Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Hi all

For those interested ... fantastic birding down there (six days)--saw/heard
161 species and grabbed 41 life birds to boot. Convention total was about
277 species last I heard. Some lifer photos here-still have to name them.

Subject: [cobirds] Logan and Phillips Counties Nov 12
Our DFO outing out NE yesterday Nov 12 enjoyed a 1st cycle *Glaucous Gull *and
a *Long-tailed Duck* at Jumbo Reservoir, Logan Co side. A *Common Loon* was
on the Sedgwick side. The *Snow Geese* were gathered at Jumbo about 25,000
to 30,000 strong, and there were also *Ross's, Gr. White-fronted* (2) and*
Cackling and Canada. *

Prewitt Res. was dull. North Sterling Res had a lot of birds,
including a *Common
Loon*, but nothing unexpected. However, a mass movement of flocks of Snow
and Cacklers filled the sky with criss-crossing V's and other formations,
and the clamor of voices!

At Haxtun WTP in Phillips we saw a hybrid goose that we concluded was most
likely *Ross's x Cackling*. Some photos are on this checklist:
https://ebird.org/checklist/S61405088
Haxtun had a lot of birds, mostly geese, but a lot of birds gathered at
that little prairie magnet in a vast reach with so little such water
opportunities.

Bushtits are very rare visitors to my yard. I frequently find the out in
Blue Skies Park (west Longmont, just off N 75th) on the Spring Bird Count,
but in 15 years I had only seen 2 on a feeder one time.
Yesterday, 4 of these diminuitive wind-up birdies showed up on my suet!

Subject: [cobirds] Four Goose Species at Home Lake

Home Lake (Rio Grande County) near Monte Vista remains free of ice. There
is a good variety and concentration of waterbirds present including Snow,
Ross's, Cackling and Canada Geese. We are not exactly in the white goose
flyway, so seeing any here is a treat.

Ducks included American Wigeon, Ruddy, Redhead, and Bufflehead.
Ring-billed and Bonapartes were present as well.

Perhaps the strangest sight was seeing 2 Long-billed Dowitchers standing on
edge ice, wondering how they were going to get to the tasty treats in the
mudflats.

Two days ago, Lisa and I saw a hen Ring-necked Pheasant, which is now a
rare bird in the San Luis Valley.

Hi All,
While looking for the White-winged Scoters at the North boat ramp of Chatfield Reservoir I saw 1, Pacific Loon near the ramp. Yes the Scoters were present.

Subject: [cobirds] Two Northern Goshawks in Fort Collins (Larimer county)
Good afternoon birders,
This afternoon I went to Spring Canyon Park (in Fort Collins and
photographed an adult Northern Goshawk with and injured eyeball that was
originally reported yesterday. My photos are here
<https://ebird.org/checklist/S61375658>. After I photographed this bird, it
flew off into a neighborhood to the northwest. When I got home (I live
roughly 2.5 miles to the southeast of Spring Canyon Park) there was an
adult Northern Goshawk chasing Eurasian Collared Doves and American Robins
in front of my house. This bird gained flew off to the southeast after it
was evaded by its quarry.
I'm pretty certain that the two Goshawks I saw were different birds, and I
find it unusual to have two adult individuals town on the same day.
Maybe there is a small movement of Goshawks towards lower elevations, so it
might be a good idea to keep an eye out for them at your feeder. Also a new
yard bird for me!
Joe Kipper,
Fort Collins

Subject: [cobirds] Yellow-bellied Sapsucker at Grandview Cemetery, Fort Collins (Larimer) on Sunday 10Nov2019
Adult male, flying from tree to tree like freshly-arrived individuals do, mostly in elms, once in big linden, southern section of cemetery, last seen headed for Austrian pine grove just out on City Park Nine golf course midway along south cemetery boundary where they traditionally spend at least some time most winters. No red or pink on nape, red throat with wide black border. Pale areas of mid-back light yellow-brown in hue. Seen with Dave Steingraeber about noon. First of Season (FOS) for me. A little bit early, usually don't see one until after Thanksgiving or early December.

Subject: [cobirds] Unusual Redhead at Rio Blanco SWA, Rio Blanco County
Friday at about 7:30 a.m. and again at 1:15 at Rio Blanco SWA near Meeker I
saw an unusual Redhead in a group of 15 other Redheads. Its head pattern
matched the one in Sibley Birds West, second edition, page 24, which he
labeled "white-headed variant." Fortunately that was the field guide I had
with me. Now that I'm home, I've looked online and in other field guides
but cannot find another reference to that variant.

Has anyone else seen a Redhead in Colorado like the one in Sibley's book?
Why is it not included in other field guides? I do not have a photo of the
duck and this is one of the few times I've wished I carried a camera. I
will appreciate your thoughts about this strange looking duck.

Hi All,

There is currently a Pacific Loon on the Douglas side of Chatfield State Park. I initially viewed the bird at a distance from South Platte Delta (as a possible Pacific), and made my way to Lakeside for a better view. I eventually refound the bird further north and was able to confirm species. It is still heading north, close to the shoreline, and may best be viewed from the Marina.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Blue Morph Ross’s Goose Denver
Way to go, Steven!

(Gentle readers, consider filing this note in your "there he goes again"
section).

Vanderbilt Lake is an under-birded hotspot in the underbelly of Denver
County.
IF you have never seen a Blue Morph Ross's Goose, I'd urge you to look for
one there. You might have to walk
all of 20 feet from your parking spot to see the pond.
As most of you know, Blue Morph Ross's Goose is not common in Colorado.
I first learned that factoid from a mentor, Joe Himmel, who in his time
looked at a *lot *of geese in the Greeley area over many years,
never seeing one... until he did!
Joe was excited when he found his first Blue Morph Ross's in the early 90's.
(Might have been on Carbody Lake? Cant even find that on a map of North
Greeley today).

I consider myself lucky to have seen a Blue Ross's here and there, each
time fondly remembering Joe. The most memorable sighting was of
a half dozen in a pure flock of 200+ Ross's (NO Snow Geese among them) at
THE playa at Phillips CR s 2 & 29 aka Lake Linfield, aka, Peterson's Playa
on the Phillips-Yuma County border.

Reminiscing is great, just have to indulge in it some days. Joe Himmel was
the first recipient of CFO's coveted Lifetime Achievement Award.
In fact Tony Leukering conceived of the award in 2007 when it seemed to be
a great way to honor Joe, the first recipient.

Hi Everyone, I was up in Larimer County today 11/9. The continuing Long-tailed Duck is still at North Poudre #4. The Bonaparte's Gulls appear to have left.

Subject: [cobirds] Blue Morph Ross’s Goose Denver
My girlfriend spotted what she thought looked like a Ross’s Goose at Vanderbilt Lake in Denver. I was able to stop by on my way home from work to find that it was indeed a BLUE MORPH version of Ross’s which is kinda cool. Can be seen well, mixed in with a large gaggle of cacklers on this little lake that has good birds from time to time.

Have to say this is my first Ross’s here.

Happy birding,

Subject: [cobirds] Duck Redux (Muscovy today in El Paso County)
Disclaimer: If you don't care about the different designations or flavors
of Muscovy Duck,
please go on to the next post.

No big deal, and not to harp on this, but as per my recent note to CObirds
about *the different names eBird uses* to define the status of any given
Muscovy Duck, the
one that fits best for ALL MUDU's in Colorado is:
Muscovy Duck (Domestic type)
Not
Muscovy Duck (Established Feral), as a duck was reported to eBird today.

All this may seem like splitting hairs, but names do matter. (If you don't
believe me, try calling your father-in-law "Pops" or "Old Man").
The trick is to understand that "Established" does NOT mean "Been there for
a while, a week, months or years".
That could be called "lingering" or "continuing" or "still there" or "ain't
gone" or "one was here last winter too".

*Established,* in the biologic sense, more or less, at least by my
understanding, means:
"A member of a breeding population in that location for a number of years
(ten? per the ABA),
preferably thriving and expanding and NOT being sustained by releases or
escapes. Long-lived species
can take much longer to meet that definition.

Another example would be the colony of Monk Parakeets that nested in
Lakewood for a few years, until they died from a cold spell
(which led to SERIOUS rigor mortis,) was correctly NOT added to the CO
list.
Ditto for the Mute Swans that bred at Marston in the 1960s and 70s and
seemed to thrive. That species actually made it to the official CO list,
but was axed when the poor population pooped out.

Follow ups and arcane comments can be made on or off line,
Joe Roller, Denver

PS Don't get me started on the status of California Condors.

Bird continues, seen from east shades. Nice find Ben.Glenn WalbekCastle Rock, COSent from Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
-------- Original message --------From: Ben S <benrmnp...> Date: 11/8/19 6:18 PM (GMT-07:00) To: Colorado Birds <cobirds...> Subject: [cobirds] Likely Yellow-billed Loon, Cherry Creek SP (Arapahoe) Hi all, This afternoon around 4 PM, I saw a Mew Gull and possible Yellow-billed Loon from Cherry Creek's Lake Loop. The Mew Gull was swimming about halfway between the east shades and lake loop. It was at least a fourth mile from where I was standing, hence the quality of the photo. It was a small larus gull, its mantle was slightly darker than a Ring-billed Gull, its head was dainty and rounded, and it had a tiny and stubby bill. The loon was similar in size and shape to a Common Loon, including a very large bill. However, this bird had pale yellowish bill, no dark anywhere on the bill visible. It had a pale face, with no distinct eyering. Also, its back and neck was pale for a loon, almost brownish. It was swimming near the Mew Gull not too far from the east shades, but swam south to the south central part of the reservoir. I have several photos of this bird. I think they show the field marks, even though they are blurry. Please take a look at my ebird checklist, as I am having trouble uploading photos here. Any feedback on the Mew Gull or Yellow-billed Loon is appreciated. Here is my ebird checklist where photos can be seen : https://ebird.org/checklist/S61282012.Ben SampsonCentennial, CO

Subject: [cobirds] Likely Yellow-billed Loon, Cherry Creek SP (Arapahoe)
Hi all,
This afternoon around 4 PM, I saw a Mew Gull and possible Yellow-billed
Loon from Cherry Creek's Lake Loop. The Mew Gull was swimming about halfway
between the east shades and lake loop. It was at least a fourth mile from
where I was standing, hence the quality of the photo. It was a small larus
gull, its mantle was slightly darker than a Ring-billed Gull, its head was
dainty and rounded, and it had a tiny and stubby bill. The loon was similar
in size and shape to a Common Loon, including a very large bill. However,
this bird had pale yellowish bill, no dark anywhere on the bill visible. It
had a pale face, with no distinct eyering. Also, its back and neck was pale
for a loon, almost brownish. It was swimming near the Mew Gull not too far
from the east shades, but swam south to the south central part of the
reservoir. I have several photos of this bird. I think they show the field
marks, even though they are blurry. Please take a look at my ebird
checklist, as I am having trouble uploading photos here. Any feedback on
the Mew Gull or Yellow-billed Loon is appreciated. Here is my ebird
checklist where photos can be seen : https://ebird.org/checklist/S61282012.

Subject: [cobirds] Pueblo Reservoir 11/8
CO birders,

Scoping Pueblo Reservoir from the South Marina from 10ish to 2ish today I had four Pacific Loons out to the west, probably quite visible from the North Marina as well. At least one of them would come quite close to the S Marina tires occasionally throughout my visit. A White-winged Scoter was at the tires around 10, but flew east to the dam and is probably somewhere on a different part of the reservoir (or gone altogether). The first Red-breasted Merganser I've seen on Lake Pueblo this season was present as well. Among good numbers of 4000+ gulls by the tires and on the water were Ring-billed, Herring, California, Lesser Black-backed (5) Thayer's Iceland (2), the returned Great Black-backed Gull (seen by Brandon) and a single first year bird I am about 95 percent certain is a Western or Olympic (Western x Glaucous-winged) Gull. I was drawn to it initially because of its overall dark, chocolate color with a darker head and stouter bill than most Herrings. Wings are very Thayer's like with somewhat frosty tips, also somewhat short primaries for a larus. Bird was Herring-sized but with a stouter bill of a different pattern, mostly black but with pink/yellow at the base of the lower mandible. I decided to leave it at unknown for now but I hope someone can come get better confirmation photos of the bird.


Good birding,

Hi, I believe this is a lone Ross's Goose among the Canada Geese at Ketring
Park in Littleton. It was small, the gape is dark, not black, and the bill
seems small, as opposed to a Snow Goose. Seen today, Friday, November 8th.
Thoughts?

It would be fun if we get some Bohemian Waxwings on some Colorado Christmas
Bird Counts this winter. Last winter, the only ones were seen during Count
Week at Steamboat Springs. I don't think southern Colorado has had an
invasion of them, since like 2005 or so. I remember seeing thousands of
them down around Lathrop State Park in Huerfano County that winter.

Subject: [cobirds] EARLY report of Bohemian waxwings in Ft. Collins (Larimer).
Are there any known or consistent areas of fruiting trees/shrubs in the area worth checking? Realizing that by nature the plants can be inconsistent and waxwings very nomadic, but thought it worth asking the group. Several years ago a friend found a relatively new neighborhood development in TX suburbia chock full of some type of small fruiting deciduous trees that hosted thousands of waxwings so it was a honey hole for a while.

Waxwings also seem to like Juniperus fruits iirc.

BOWA would be a lifer...

(second-hand report)
I saw on eBird that on Nov 7 at least 3 Bohemian waxwings were among a
"massive"
flock of Cedar Waxwings in the Warren Farms neighborhood NW of Warren Lake,
as
reported by Josh Bruening.

This seemed early to me, and indeed eBird species maps show it to
be early by about a week for the Front Range.
Might these 3 be the harbingers of an invasion year for these chunky,
scowling bombycillids?
So far this year there are no other eBird reports of BohWaxers south of
Yellowstone NP.
Stay tuned!

Subject: [cobirds] Weld/Larimer-a few quick notes.
All,

Just a couple of quick observations. I had to run to Windsor (Weld) first
thing this morning for work. Stopped by Windsor Lake (not Reservoir) for a
quick scope around the water. There was a male Barrow's Goldeneye
intermixed with 120 or so Commons. I was able to get some decent
digiscoped pics I will upload to Ebird when it decides to start working
again.

I returned home (Larimer-mid-town Ft Collins) to thumb through a mountain
of other work stuff, but didn't get 2 steps out of my car before it was
clear there were far more birds than normal in my neighborhood. A large
group of Am Robins and Red-winged Blackbirds were mingling with an even
larger group of Waxwings. I was able to get through about 100 birds that
were almost all Cedars but found 3 Bohemian Waxwings in the group. There
were probably another 100 birds that will go down as Bohemian/Cedars. An
extremely loud garbage truck rolled through and spooked the whole group.
They flew south of Horsetooth Road in the vicinity of the Tradition
intersection (halfway between College and Shields). They were in the
crabapples in my hood before they moved on. Either way, keep your eye out
for Waxwing flocks. These are the first Bohemians I've seen in Colorado
for a few years now. At least the bird kind anyways...

Bird is the word!

Subject: [cobirds] Larimer miscellany for 5November2019
In addition to the Pacific Loon and Bonaparte's gulls at Hamilton Reservoir mentioned in a message sent from the field around noon, when the water surface fog finally burned off a bit in the nw corner, it revealed 4 White Pelicans (that when mostly obscured by fog I tried to make into swans). Staying with true confessions, I went to Hamilton at last light yesterday afternoon and saw what I thought was a large, sleeping, very pale (think Yellow-billed) "loon". That is mostly why I went back this morning. The "yellow-billed loon", which would have been the second that I know of for this reservoir, was in the same spot on the water, exactly the same spot, and was actually some sort of sunken metal structure. Ted counts Black Swan, I count Metallic Loon. A few American Tree Sparrows were below the overlook in the rabbitbrush.

At North Poudre #4, the Long-tailed Duck immature first found by Rachel over a week ago persists. This private water body also had a good number of Bonaparte's Gulls. Even though they're gulls, I gotta say I like the snappy appearance of winter Bonaparte's. This reservoir had by far the greatest waterfowl density of all the others nearby and merits scrutiny.

The Rusty Blackbird found recently in a flowing ditch near the nw corner of Boxelder #3 (aka Smith Res SWA) remains gone and is presumably gone for good. Reservoir itself was almost waterfowl free, with only 6 Buffleheads.

At its north end North Poudre #3 had about twenty "white" geese, mostly Snows, but also a few Ross's mixed in. Not much else.

Douglas Reservoir was subdued compared to 10 days or so ago, but did have a continuing Common Loon, all three mergansers and a handful of Bonaparte's Gulls. A few American Tree Sparrows were in rabbitbrush and a Merlin sat atop a power pole se of the res near the electrical station and houses.

As a late report from yesterday, there were about 25 Sandhill Cranes e of CR15 with geese in corn stubble just south of CR76.

Four adult *Tundra Swans* flew south over Arapahoe Community College a
short while ago this afternoon Nov 7. They were like magnificent vessels
lit aglow by the afternoon sun, winging royally past flocks of 100s of
Cackling Geese that were moving at the same time, They were not very high.

Subject: [cobirds] Hybrid Bufflehead/Com. Goldeneye - Walker Pit, Franktown, Douglas
This morning we saw a hybrid Bufflehead/Com. Goldeneye, identical to one we saw last winter. It dove into the Walker gravel pond among a big flock of Cackling Geese. If you want to get a look at it, you probably will need a scope.
It has the body of a goldeneye, a heart-shaped white face, and a greenish cap.
The attached photo I took last year.

Subject: [cobirds] Gryfalcon, Larimer County No
Spent ~1.5 hrs cruising between Harmony Rd to CR 57, and up and down Shields and Taft Hill, scanning utility poles etc, no sign of the legendary Gyrfalcon. About 7 Kestrels and a couple Red-tails, not much else. Did not enter the landfill proper, maybe Gyr is in there hunting gulls? Overcast, still, low clouds over the westerly ridge.
Good birding,

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Re: RFI-- Red-flanked Bluetail
My experience of this species in Asia, and in the UK where it is a very rare visitor, is that it can be very retiring, and can remain hidden in/under bushes for long periods, feeding on the ground in a Nightingale-thrush like behaviour. Then, at times, it will feed out in the open, again, terrestrially.

Good luck in relocating..

This species was long considered a Holy Grail for birders in the UK, and even though it has started turning up more regularly since a decade or so back, any sighting is still a popular draw in the UK

Good birding all

Yeah, I assumed no sightings, given the lack of report. What might be useful is stories of the extent to which it was searched for, what time, how long, how many, etc. If no one went, it might be worth a chase. If 20 ppl were there for 5 hrs and came up empty, that'd be a different plan.

Hardly any birds, and certainly no Blue-tail. One Sharp-shinned Hawk, one

Yeah, I assumed no sightings, given the lack of report. What might be
useful is stories of the extent to which it was searched for, what time,
how long, how many, etc. If no one went, it might be worth a chase. If 20
ppl were there for 5 hrs and came up empty, that'd be a different plan.

Surely someone must've trekked up there today. Any news at all, at this

Subject: [cobirds] Snow Goose and Northern Shrike, Boulder County
CObirders,
This morning the Boulder Bird Club saw a juvenile Snow Goose (white head,
gray back) at Sawhill-Walden Ponds. It was in a small pond with some
Cackling geese near the center of the Sawhill part of the area.

We also saw a Northern Shrike close to the wooden bird blind in the Sawhill
area.

Pictures of the Snow Goose will be posted on eBird.

Ben, et al,
Cody Porter's neighbors were nothing but welcoming and friendly during the
2 days I was in Laramie looking for the bird. I am unaware of any conflict
between the birders, quite a few of whom were local, and any of the
neighbors. One neighbor invited me into his yard and made me feel very
welcome. I believe the officer was there enforcing some parking permit
requirement as this neighborhood is just up the street from U of W and
apparently the parking can be tight. I didn't have any problems parking as
I was just north of Cody's yard/area on a part of the street where there
weren't any parking restrictions.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] What's the deal on this rare Red-flanked Bluetail in nearby Wyoming?
I went up to Laramie today to try for the Red-flanked Bluetail around 1 pm. No luck. While driving through the spot it was reported, I saw a couple of birders. Asked them if they had any luck, they hadn't. I went to look for a good parking spot. No luck on that. I am driving back through and I see police talking to some people. Now I don't know this for sure, but I assumed one of the neighbors was suspicious of all the people with binos and cameras and called the police. Not wanting to be part of whatever was going on, and since the bird was nowhere to be seen, I decided to accept my loss and head back toward Colorado. I stopped at Turtle Rock on my way back to Colorado. Most notable birds were eight Clark's Nutcrackers and a Golden crowned Kinglet. As for the Red-flanked Bluetail, I think it was a one day wonder. Apparently the Farralone Islands, California, had one on November 3rd. Probably not the same bird. This may be wishful thinking, but maybe we should keep an eye out for one here in Colorado for the next couple weeks!

Subject: [cobirds] Jackson Lake SP, Tufted Duck update (no)
All,
I’m sure many of you are saying “wait, what?” to that subject line. The report from Norm Lewis yesterday got a little lost in the hubbub of the bluetail and the mythical Gyrfalcon (big gyr dipper here!).

Anyway, Norm nicely photo’d one of the Long-tailed Ducks at Jackson Lake SP, Morgan Co. on Sunday and inadvertently photo’d a TUFTED DUCK! I was reviewing flagged reports in eBird and spotted the Tufted Duck next to a Long-tailed Duck! I’m thrilled Norm added a lot of photos of the Long-tailed!! Well done sir! Bittersweet though. There are 4 previous accepted records of Tufted Duck in CO.

Anyway, I spent several hours today scanning the lake after the frozen fog lifted about 945. I gave myself a headache scoping the lake and looking at every scaup and finding various species here and there. There were a lot of Lesser Scaup, a couple Greaters, and a lot of other birds around the western and southern half of the lake. I never found the Tufted in spite of ideal viewing conditions. It was clear, sunny and calm. Beautiful day and a well spent day regardless (of the Gyr showing well!!).

I did relocate one Long-tailed duck and every time I saw it (on maybe on 1/5 of my scans as it was diving a lot), I was waiting for the Tufted to appear. Alas that never happened.

Another joy was watching a Merlin give a flock of starlings fits. So fun to watch Merlin’s hunt (or play/tease with potential prey). A Barn Owl was in the Russian Olives, but I didn’t find any Long-eared owls. A gray catbird was calling and carrying on as well this morning.

I hope someone can relocate this Tufted! Please report here on CO-Birds about success or otherwise.

Cheers,
Scott Somershoe

Subject: [cobirds] Gyrfalcon near the Larimer County Landfill on Trilby in sw Fort Collins (Larimer), 5 November 2019
Here are some grainy photos taken at quite a distance of the Gyrfalcon discovered recently by Robert and updated by Diane and Joe. I know Josh also refound this same individual. Is it the same bird Andy discovered in the landfill last winter? Tough to tell because it has undergone a molt or two. Doesn't look the same, but then go look at your high school yearbook photo.

I share these just to give folks hunting for it the right search image. Josh and I last saw it about 11:30 this morning flying over the landfill heading east of Taft and down out of sight (maybe to sit on one of those low posts straight east of the landfill entrance?). The tall poles w of Taft on the Trilby extension are still the best places to camp out and wait for it. Good luck.

Subject: [cobirds] Gyrfalcon, Larimer County
At 9:30 this morning, the Gyrfalcon was again on top of one of the metal
power poles just west of Taft Hill Road. It stayed there long enough for me
to get my scope out and on the bird. I watched it for 3-4 minutes, calling
Dave Leatherman in the meantime. At 9:35 it flew southeast across Taft Hill
Road and interacted with another falcon, possibly the Prairie Falcon. It
dove and twisted and turned with the other bird until the other one left. I
then lost it. Dave showed up at 9: 45 or so. We watched for another 20
minutes or so and I then noticed it had returned to the top of the 4th
metal pole from the west end of the straight line of poles. We raced along
Trilby to get close and were able to stop and both get our scopes on the
bird. Dave also was able to get his camera out and took several pictures.
The Falcon then took off circling and soaring towards the dump and we then
lost it. 5 minutes later all of the gulls (approximately 1000) at the dump
got up, so we think it chased or harassed them.

Subject: [cobirds] What's the deal on this rare Red-flanked Bluetail in nearby Wyoming?
Several of you have asked me for information about this "way lost" bird,
found
yesterday by Cody Porter, a savvy birder in nearby Laramie, Wyoming.
Kudos to Cody for getting "the word" out promptly!

That Bluetail has become known as the "Laramie Rarity". (Say in fast three
times).
A few Colorado birders made it up to the Equality State yesterday, Nov 4,
and many
more are on the scene or en route at this very moment.

Honestly, I had never even heard of this species, so I studied up on it a
bit, using
eBird maps and other on-line sources. Might as well share what I learned.
Any of this can be amended or corrected by more knowledgable birders or
those who have actually seen the bird.

The *Red-flanked Bluetail* is an old world flycatcher (formerly thought to
be
a kind of thrush) that breeds in cooler climates of Northern Europe and
Asia,
eg, Scandinavia, Russia, northern China and south into more temperate parts
of
southern China, Japan, etc.

The Scandinavian population migrates southwest to England, France, etc,
with
some straying further to Mediterranean countries, but NOT to the eastern
US, as many
other "overshoot" species have done.
The Asiatic breeding Buetails migrate pretty much due south to spend the
winter in southern China and Japan, with records as far south as Vietnam.

And a few individuals, perhaps with a faulty GPS in their brains, migrate
east and southeast,
showing up to winter in Alaska and the US west coast, as far south as Los
Angeles.

These vagrants have stayed for months, attracting hundreds of eager birders
from all over the US. The
closest one ever got to Colorado was the Bluetail that spent the winter of
2016-17 in far western Idaho,
where some intrepid Colorado birders were able to see it.

BUT there are no US records of Red-flanked Bluetail for any points east of
Idaho until yesterday, when
the Laramie rarity (kind of rhymes) was found and photographed.

Why drive that far to see this Bluetail? Check out the airfare to other
places you could find one,
like Sweden,Finland or that other popular Bluetail breeding site near Lake
Baikal, Дорога до Теплых озер (Tepli Ozera access track).

Will it survive the cool Wyoming winter? Only if it has a consistent food
supply and is carrying
a lucky rabbit's foot, BUT the bird is sure to arrive in Colorado soon if
it continues on its apparent southeasterwardly
journey.
So keep those mealworms handy, and watch your feeder continuously. You too
could enjoy 500 birders crowding into
your kitchen for a glimpse of this year's rarity, Red-flanked Bluetail!

Thanks and good birding!
Joe Roller, Denver

PS
IF you plan to seek out the Bluetail, work up a carload, pack up, and go
the alley near this address:
658 1/2 North 9th Street, Laramie, WY.
The homeowner, Cody Porter, has welcomed birders so far, but of course that
could change,
based on the historic observation that "life happens".

The exact site is pinpointed on the eBird hotspot map, labelled:
"stakeout Red-flanked Bluetail, Laramie, 2019"
That hotspot can be used even if the bird has moved a few blocks.
