Hi Cobirders
I saw two Cattle Egrets at Heron Lake, Adams County, this afternoon. One
had orange on the head and chest, the other didn't. Both had straw colored
bills. This is at the former Lowell Ponds wildlife area, south of I-76,
between Lowell Blvd. and Tennyson St.

It seems like there were no jaegers or Sabine's Gulls today unfortunately
at Pueblo Reservoir, I believe a Parasitic was seen on Saturday by quite a
few people, and the last report of any Long-tailed Jaeger was Thursday the
20th (note that the e-bird report from the 21st, was really from the

Reservoir, hopefully more will show up soon.

Videos of Long-tailed Jaeger from Thursday, can be seen at

Photos of both jaegers that I saw during the afternoon on Sept 20th, have
been submitted to the Colorado Birds Records Committee (luckily other

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report Chico Basin Ranch - 9/24/18
The wind was a bit of a limiting factor today, but there was a steady pace
of birds. I banded more Wilson's Warbler than I did on Saturday, and I
caught the season's second Ovenbird. The total was 52 birds banded of 11
species. I also had 5 recaps, including a Song Sparrow that was banded
before this season.

Here's the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 3
Wilson's Warbler: 29
Orange-crowned Warbler: 7
Audubon's Warbler: 4
House Wren: 1
Ovenbird: 1
Lincoln's Sparrow: 3
Song Sparrow: 1
Gambel's White-crowned Sparrow: 1
Blue Grosbeak: 1
American Robin: 1

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). This week I'm opening nets at 6:50 and banding until 11:50
weather permitting.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/23/18
Another lovely banding day, with lots of families out enjoying the birds.
53 birds of 16 species, including first of season Swainson's Thrush and
Flicker, which wins the prize for the noisiest bird of the season so far.
We continue to catch large numbers of Audubon's YR Warblers, almost all of
which have been hatch year birds. Had Cassin's and Red-eyed Vireos in the
hand at the same time. Here's the breakdown:

Northern Flicker, Red-shafted 1
Cassin's Vireo 1
Red-eyed Vireo 1
Marsh Wren 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 2
Swainson's Thrush 1
Hermit Thrush 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 10
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 20
Common Yellowthroat 1
Wilson's Warbler 5
Chipping Sparrow 5
Song Sparrow 2
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 2

We are closed tomorrow/Monday, then open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday,
weather permitting, through October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and
should have birds back at the station by 7:15. We will close most days by
about 11:30, earlier as long as this heat continues. 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] Grandview Cemetery on 9/23/18 (Larimer), Fort Collins
One of the better visits of the year this morning between 7:45am and 11:30am.


HIGHLIGHTS:

PINYON JAY (only the second ever, flyover, first one was exactly 8 years ago to the day). FOY at GC, obviously.

Plumbeous Vireo (1) getting yellowjackets in scale-infested elms, FOY at GC

Townsend's Warbler (2-3) getting yellowjackets in elms

Ruby-crowned Kinglet (3-4)

Empidonax sp.

Western Wood-Pewee (1)

Hairy Woodpecker (heard)

Yellow-rumped Warbler (4)

Wilson's Warbler (few)

Song Sparrow (1)

House Wren (1)

Pine Siskin (heard, flyover)

Dark-eyed Junco (1 pink-sided feeding on grass seed with chipping sparrows)

Chipping Sparrow (25+)

Barn Swallow (last of this year's young out flying with parents)


Coolest thing was photographing Black-capped Chickadees engaged in their unique way of getting hackberry blistergall psyllids out of blistergalls. They fly up, pull a leaf, take the leaf to a bare branch surface, stand on the leaf, wail thru the blisters with wonderful precision, wail until the biggest and best blisters are emptied of their respective psyllid nymphs, drop the leaf, repeat.


[cid:08418a2c-2bca-4fa1-bd95-dd3f883b08af]


BcChickadee extracting psyllid nymphs from blistergalls on Northern Hackberry.


[cid:73bc5901-8a8f-4b8e-add9-c604e7646b93] [cid:d448cf4f-f54d-4600-a8a2-5b2f3fc23316]


Psyllid blistergall completely punctured by chickadee beak (L). Four blistergalls showing shallow, more delicate extraction of nymphs (R).

Total of 34 species for visit, including breeding species, migrants and wintering species. Total for the year at GC: 96

Subject: [cobirds] Prothonotary Warbler - Mesa County
What a surprise! This morning while enjoying a cup of coffee and a freshly
baked scone on the back patio, I had a *Prothonotary Warbler* pass through
the yard. I heard a chip and saw a flash of bright yellow, so thinking I
had a Wilson's Warbler in the back yard, I started studying the mulberry
bush. To my surprise, it turned out to be a Prothonotary Warbler. I had
several good looks at the bird from 10-12 yards away as it fed in the lower
level of the large mulberry bush.

Much larger than a Wilson's Warbler with a bright golden yellow head and
body, plain face with distinct dark eye and large pointed dark bill, olive
green back, unmarked bluish wings, white under tail coverts contrasting
sharply with yellow body. Very sharp contrast with yellow head, olive
green back and bluish wings leads me to believe it was a male.

The Prothonotary Warbler fed for a few minutes in the mulberry bush before
taking flight to the east and our neighbor's yard. There is a drainage
with a small stream and thick underbrush with some trees less than 100
yards from where I saw the Prothonotary Warbler. I searched the area, but
was unable to find the Prothonotary. Did turn up a Western Tanager and
some Yellow-rumped Warblers in the wash.

What a treat!

Subject: [cobirds] Ruby-throated Hummingbird
Hi all,


I have been in the yard, just sitting, and the hummer who comes to the back is rarely coming in. Once in an hour and a half. I did not see the one with the red spot on it's throat. I moved the chairs further away from the feeder so the look of the hummer is not really good, but you can come by if you want. BUT, please ONLY sit quietly in the chair, and do NOT walk around the yard. I can not promise the bird will be here. I know the hummers will probably not be here after my yard folks come this week. Because of this, I am closing my yard for viewing tomorrow.


Sorry for those who could not see the bird. These birds could have gotten skittish regardless and the looks if any today involve waiting a long time.


Both birds are hatch year male Ruby-throated[immatures]. The white tips of the tail determine this, with rectrice 5 being narrowed to a tip. Inner primaries also indicate a young male . The characteristics that some of us use to ID hummers,[coloration on gorget and throat], in this case, and in many other cases, do not always tell one which sex or age the bird is. Hummers remain to be very hard to ID, unless you have the bird in the hand. Calling the bird by it's common name and not getting the bird to sex and age may be all we can do, in certain situations and this is fine.


Many , many thanks to everyone who shared photos, Mark Chavez, Frank Farrel, Steven Rash, Rob Raker, Myron[sorry I forgot your last name], Ira Saunders, and Rosanne. If I left anyone out, sorry.


Thanks and Happy Birding!

Tina Jones

I'm glad some of you saw the bird/birds.

Subject: [cobirds] Ruby-throated Hummingbirds (!) (Jefferson)
seen again several times today Sep 22 at Tina Jones' property in Bow Mar
(back yard) by several observers. Tina says that there are actually two
Rubythroats, one female and one with a dot on its throat (juvenile male?).
Steve Kingswood and I saw the female first at 4:15 PM and Doug Kibbe and
Elaine Wagner were there for another sighting at 4:40 or so.

Much thanks to Tina for not only inviting birders to her property but for
providing chairs to wait for the bird!

Subject: [cobirds] 2, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds,Jefferson County,Littleton
Yes, there are 2 Ruby-throated hummingbirds in my yard. I saw the second one today and apparently it was seen by some others on,9/20. The original one is still here but the second one is getting skittish. This second one has a small red spot on the lower part of it's throat. This same one has buffy grayish flanks .

I am still waiting to hear back from the expert on Hummingbird ID as to what sex and age these 2 hummers might be. This is a great opportunity for learning, and says to me, that hummingbirds can be very, very, difficult to ID, which I think they are. Sometimes as with some other bird species, the ID may take time or the ID may not be exactly as we wish. I have my own opinion about these Ruby-throated, and it might be different from other folks.


PLEASE, ONLY SIT in the chairs where they are in the Backyard, and in the Frontyard. I CAN NOT have individuals walking around the yard. It is dry and the Ruby-throated leaves if you stand up or walk around. I want everyone to be able to see these birds and one of the birds is more skittish as of today. Do not expect to see 2 Ruby-throated. You are lucky if you see one, and one is skittish, big time, and is in a different place every day, and it can move around a lot to anywhere.


There is a sign in booklet in a ziplock, on a chair in the patio. Please sign it and include your town. Thank you all for being considerate. I'll post Sunday, mid morning, If I see 1, or more Ruby-throated.

Hi

On recent, loosening up the back, evening walks around the greater DU area in Denver, I’ve detected Great-horned Owls hooting starting at 7PM and continuing. Actually I’ve heard them hooting, to a lesser degree, during the day. The extent of their hooting suggest they are already setting up territories, the end of September! Anyone else hearing them?

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/22/18
Was yesterday a lull? Not sure, but today we had everything we want at the
banding station - lots of interesting birds, appreciative visitors
(including a good contingent from the Broomfield Bird Club), and homemade
cinnamon rolls (provided by a station visitor). We banded steadily all
morning, and then capped everything off by catching a Broad-winged Hawk,
not surprisingly the first-ever at the station and a first-in-the-hand for
me. Here's a breakdown of the 68 new birds:

Broad-winged Hawk 1
Western Wood-pewee 1
Dusky Flycatcher 1
House Wren 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 6
Hermit Thrush 1
Gray Catbird 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 14
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 11
Common Yellowthroat 1
Wilson's Warbler 5
Green-tailed Towhee 1
Chipping Sparrow 8
Song Sparrow 2
Lincoln's Sparrow 5
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 3
Dark-eyed Junco, Pink-sided 4
Dark-eyed Junco, Gray-headed 1

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30, earlier as long as
this heat continues. 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 - 9/22/18
Today had the most diversity and the highest number of birds banded this
season. The high numbers were thanks in part to having help from Jacy
Bernath-Plaisted, who also works for the Bird Conservancy and was
volunteering here at the banding station yesterday and today.

The most notable bird of the day was a Philadelphia Vireo. We also caught
the first Rock Wren and Brewer's Sparrow of the season. It was the first
day that Wilson's Warblers were not the most commonly captured species. The
total for the day was 91 birds banded of 20 species plus a Brown Thrasher
that was first banded on September 12th.

Here's the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Wilson's Warbler: 21
Orange-crowned Warbler: 30
Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 4
Dusky Flycatcher: 2
Chipping Sparrow: 4
House Wren: 1
Philadelphia Vireo: 1
Audubon's Warbler: 2
Brewer's Sparrow: 1
Common Yellowthroat: 1
Dark-eyed Junco: 2 (1 Oregon, 1 Pink-sided)
Rock Wren: 1
Lincoln's Sparrow: 6
Song Sparrow: 4
White-crowned Sparrow: 4 (2 Gambel's, 2 Mountain)
Hermit Thrush: 1
Blue Grosbeak: 2
Gray Catbird: 1
Green-tailed Towhee: 1
Spotted Towhee: 2

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). Next week I'm opening nets at 6:50 and banding until 11:50
weather permitting.

I had one great horned owl hooting predawn about three weeks ago. It woke me up and I listened for a second one, but the hoots were all the same pitch and sounded like one owl. It must have been about 4:30 am.

When the second bird shows up, they often sit in disparate parts of the crown. Over several days, if they decide "this is the start of something big", the distance between them lessens and eventually they literally sit shoulder to shoulder. Again, I am not there at night, but I think this period of time involves calling back and forth, and rarely I hear some of this during the daytime. I suspect that sort of thing may what you and Greg have posted about. So, rather than "setting up a territory", I think it is more pair-bonding, with the traditional territory, at least in the case of the cemetery that I'm familiar with, being already established. It's more a case of a long-term lease being extended. Some of the chatter may be discussion of the terms, but I tend to think it is mostly about commitments by the future tenants.

> Over the course of autumn into early winter, the birds tend to roost closer and closer to the traditional nest tree. Lots of hooting during this time. Around the turn of the year, the female seems to disappear, the male takes up residence in a big spruce looking down on the nest elm, and then, bingo, some time in late winter (January to early March), she appears in the nest crotch and away the tedium and hard work of nesting progresses.

My wife (Laura) and I also heard a Great Horned Owl sometime around 5:15 a.m. in our area just west of Quebec and south of I-470 in our development (Palomino Park) in Highlands Ranch. We are next to a golf course and there are some large cottonwood trees in a ravine in the golf course. The owl may and likely was hooting earlier but that was when we noticed it. My wife also thought she was hearing another owl in the distance. She has better hearing than I do. We have also seen them sitting on the tops of adjacent homes in the past.

My next door neighbor is hearing a Great Horned Owl between 10-12 p.m. in our HOA just north of N Table Mt. He is from Duluth, MN and knows them well. I played the Sibley calls on my phone for him and, Yep, that is exactly what he heard and he said it sounded like it was on top of one of our roofs or one of our 12-yr old trees! I must have slept through it! Will stay up later and listen! He also saw a red fox sniffing around his front yard at that late hour.



I think there has been a pair of owls nesting on N Table Mt. Assume they still are.

Bob et al,

What I have noticed in the past at Grandview Cemetery in Fort Collins is the initiation of Great Horned Owl pair-bonding in late summer. I have not seen it this year, but the pattern in the past has been as follows:



During June and July thru most of August, adults are difficult to find but seem mostly involved with teaching young from the previous spring the ropes. The young birds are vocal (sound more like beginning cello students than large owls), tend to move all around the cemetery, choose different roosting spots, and, thus, the parents tend to move around, also.



Usually in August things change. The status of the kids changes. In the big eyes of their parents, what was yesterday a dependent is today viewed as competition. No doubt pressured by the parents, the young disappear to start their own lives elsewhere.



Usually in late August I notice one parent, presumably the male, start sitting in the huge, champion honeylocust in the southeastern part of the cemetery. This magnificent tree is about 100 yards from the traditional nest site in the crotch of a large American elm in the center of the cemetery.



After a period of weeks extending into September, which may involve some calling by the male at night when I am not present, he is joined by a second bird in the honeylocust. When the second bird shows up, they often sit in disparate parts of the crown. Over several days, if they decide "this is the start of something big", the distance between them lessens and eventually they literally sit shoulder to shoulder. Again, I am not there at night, but I think this period of time involves calling back and forth, and rarely I hear some of this during the daytime. I suspect that sort of thing may what you and Greg have posted about. So, rather than "setting up a territory", I think it is more pair-bonding, with the traditional territory, at least in the case of the cemetery that I'm familiar with, being already established. It's more a case of a long-term lease being extended. Some of the chatter may be discussion of the terms, but I tend to think it is mostly about commitments by the future tenants.



Over the course of autumn into early winter, the birds tend to roost closer and closer to the traditional nest tree. Lots of hooting during this time. Around the turn of the year, the female seems to disappear, the male takes up residence in a big spruce looking down on the nest elm, and then, bingo, some time in late winter (January to early March), she appears in the nest crotch and away the tedium and hard work of nesting progresses.



At least this is how I interpret things in my patch. Certainly there could be other reasons for hooting at any time of year but I would wager what you report involves mate selection. Thanks for your posts, Bob and Greg.

Hi



On recent, loosening up the back, evening walks around the greater DU area in Denver, I’ve detected Great-horned Owls hooting starting at 7PM and continuing. Actually I’ve heard them hooting, to a lesser degree, during the day. The extent of their hooting suggest they are already setting up territories, the end of September! Anyone else hearing them?

Hi

On recent, loosening up the back, evening walks around the greater DU area in Denver, I’ve detected Great-horned Owls hooting starting at 7PM and continuing. Actually I’ve heard them hooting, to a lesser degree, during the day. The extent of their hooting suggest they are already setting up territories, the end of September! Anyone else hearing them?

Subject: [cobirds] Bird & Nature events this weekend at Greenlee Preserve, Boulder County
Hey, everybody.

The City of Lafayette & partners will be hosting a series of birding and
nature study events this coming weekend, Sept. 22-23.

First up, tomorrow evening, Saturday, is a lantern walk followed by an
introduction to the songs of insects. We'll listen for "The Big 5" at this
time of the year: Snowy Tree Cricket, Fall Field Cricket, Allard's Ground
Cricket, Greater Anglewing Katydid, and Plains Harvest Fly. Expect to hear
other insects, especially various ground crickets and katydids. The event
gets underway at 6:30 pm at the Waneka Lake boat house, directly south of
Greenlee Preserve.

On Sunday afternoon, starting at 1pm, the city will be hosting its 5th
annual Bird Migration Celebration, starting at 1pm. Short bird walks will
be going out of Greenlee Preserve. Also there will be booths, vendors,
raptors, schwag, and more. Some of the common birds of late around Greenlee
Preserve & environs have included Swainson's Hawk, Snowy Egret, Say's
Phoebe, Bushtit, and Lesser Goldfinch. And Wilson's Warblers galore. We
always find something interesting on September bird walks at the preserve!

All events are free and open to the public.

Hope to see you there!

Subject: [cobirds] Connected Lakes State Park Banding Update
Hi everyone, I've just wrapped up the first week of banding at Connected
Lakes State Park in Grand Junction. Mesa County has been in an extreme
drought and has had a record-breaking summer in terms of heat, which
explains the low numbers of birds moving through so far. Overall it's been
very slow here, and we've had to close nets early every day due to heat.
Nonetheless, I banded 42 birds of 17 species over the past 5 days, which
included 2 returning Spotted Towhees from 2017. The following species
account represents the effort of 190 net hours at this site.

Wilson's Warbler: 12

White-crowned Sparrow (Gambel’s): 6

Spotted Towhee: 3
Brewer's Sparrow: 3
Black-capped Chickadee: 3

Orange-crowned Warbler: 3

MacGillivray's Warbler: 2

Townsend’s Warbler: 1

Song Sparrow: 1

Hammond’s Flycatcher: 1

Lincoln's Sparrow: 1

Warbling Vireo: 1
House Finch: 1
Yellow Warbler: 1
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher: 1

Red-naped Sapsucker: 1

Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 1

Spotted Towhee - 2 returns from 2017

I will be running the station every week day until October 12th, and there
will also be a public banding day on the morning of Saturday, September
29th. Hope to see you there!

Our first really slow day this season. Wind started up about 8:30 and grew
as the morning went on and that didn't help, but even before the wind it
seemed very quiet. Only 15 new birds today:

House Wren 1
Hermit Thrush 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 1
MacGillivray's Warbler 1
Wilson's Warbler 2
Yellow-breasted Chat 1
Chipping Sparrow 4
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1
Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon 1

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30, earlier as long as
this heat continues. 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] Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Jefferson County
Hi all,

I have been gone all morning. The hummer is being seen at the back feeder. After looking at some great photos of the bird, I see some details which I could not pick up before. The pictures show no buff edging on the upperparts, which make's me say this is most likely an adult female. Again, short to medium size bill, black lores, very, very white underparts, notched tail, emerald green upperparts, with primary 10 being narrowed at the tip, more so than the tip of Primary 9. Tail is longer than wing tips when the bird is sitting. Bird looks to me to be sort of chunky.


PLEASE, first email me, or leave a phone message, as to when you might stop by. You do not need to hear back from me.


I appreciate you viewing from where the chairs are located. Do not walk around the yard or move the chairs. I have them located at a distance that the Hummingbird is comfortable with.


I may not be home tomorrow to post, so if someone sees this bird, feel free to post.


Happy Birding!

Subject: [cobirds] Sedge Wren Pueblo County
Birders,
There is currently a Sedge Wren below the dam on the Southeast side of Rose Pond in the Pueblo portion of Chico Basin Ranch (today 9/21). It has been silent for a few minutes now but for a while was actively chipping and popped up for views a few times. It likes the dense Russian thistle and sedges clustered there.


Good Birding,
David Tonnessen

Subject: [cobirds] Jaeger photos from Pueblo Res.
I was able to see all three jaegers at Pueblo Reservoir yesterday
afternoon, and I think the lighter one is a Long tailed and the darker one
is a Parastic. I wasn't able to photograph the third jaeger, it was very
far away. Happy some expert birders were able to see the jaegers
yesterday. Good luck to anyone trying today and over the weekend, I won't
be able to help people this weekend.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/20/18
Not as many birds today, but a continued great mix of species. Highlights
included our first Gray Flycatcher (pretty rare for Barr), first, and
likely only for the season, Northern Waterthrush, and our second Brown
Thrasher. 37 birds of 17 species:

Western Wood-pewee 1
Gray Flycatcher 1
House Wren 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 4
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher 1 (FOS)
Hermit Thrush 1
Brown Thrasher 1 new, caught at the same time as a BRTH we caught last
week. Two BRTHs together; maybe my favorite photo op of the season so far!
Orange-crowned Warbler 4
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 6
Townsend's Warbler 2
Northern Waterthrush 1 (FOS)
Wilson's Warbler 5
Chipping Sparrow 1
Clay-colored Sparrow 2
Song Sparrow 2
Lincoln's Sparrow 2
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 1

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30, earlier as long as
this heat continues. 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] Adult Sabine Gull at Smith Reservoir
Today in both the afternoon and evening, I observed and attempted to
photograph an adult Sabine Gull at Smith reservoir, Costilla County. It has
the striking wing pattern of white, black and gray, and dark head with dark
bill tipped in yellow. I first saw it in flight and then saw it on water.
But it is staying at the extreme north end of the lake so bring a scope.
Got enough pics for identification but not for artistry!

Long-billed Curlew was another enjoyable sighting.

A few years ago, we had a number of juvenile Sabines visit the Valley. This
may be the first adult.

On another note, a Cassin's Vireo was on the Mosca Pass Trail today
(Alamosa Cty).

Subject: [cobirds] Crow Valley Campground (Weld) late morning on September 20, 2018
Despite perfect detection conditions (rain last night eliminated underfoot crunch, very light wind to start, overcast skies to start), as has been the case of late, CVCG was pretty darn quiet for the middle of September. This should be prime time, with 40-50 species to be expected, if not more. Total for today, counting 4 species seen in Briggsdale town not seen in campground, was 39. My theory is that at least 2 summer hail storms killed a lot of the insects out there, especially those that feed on elm leaves (elm leaf beetle and its predators in particular). Who knows, but just doesn't seem like there are a lot of insects for birds to eat.


Highlights today in campground and nearby Briggsdale between 9:30am and 1pm

Common Nighthawk (1 small, pale individual had me going for a while, thinking it might be Lesser but when it reluctantly flew, white in wing not right for Lesser). Sure wish there was an obvious mark or way to tell these apart on perched individuals seen well. Not sure which race this one, probably "Northern Plains" but possibly "Eastern". Just looked odd somehow.


[cid:6eb2ff3e-abf7-4dcb-97e4-b5fe5aa084cc] [cid:ec026571-3e28-47c8-b7bc-97887189bf05]


Cassin's Kingbird - 1 way out north working the fenceline. Saw it capture a darkling beetle and an orange sulphur butterfly.

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (at least 6).

Gray Catbird (1)

Brown Thrasher (2)

Bullock's Oriole? (heard only, never could see it, way out north, would be somewhat late for this species)

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report Chico Basin Ranch - 9/20/18
This morning was pretty windy and there were a few raindrops which kept
numbers lower than usual. I didn't catch any new species, but I caught the
second Red-naped Sapsucker of the season. The total was 37 new birds of 10
species.

Here's the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Wilson's Warbler: 16
Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 4
Hammond's Flycatcher: 1
Orange-crowned Wabler: 6
MacGillivray's Warbler: 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler: 3
Dusky Flycatcher: 1
Cassin's Vireo: 2
Hermit Thrush: 2
Red-naped Sapsucker: 1

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). This week I'm opening nets at 6:50 and banding until 11:50
weather permitting.

The Marina, Sandspit, Handicap Fishermen Pier and Plum Creek are all closed
now until next May due to construction at Chatfield State Park. There are
barricades at the perimeter road to all these locations. And the perimeter
road will be closed beginning October 1st from the park headquarters to
just south of the swim beach. They are building a new bridge over the South
Platte River. The swim beach is supposed to open October 1st. Most
construction should be done by next May. Here is their website to see

Subject: [cobirds] Ruby-throated Hummingbird
The Ruby-throated Hummingbird is still here, and in the backyd, coming to the feeder around every 30 minutes. I moved the chairs closer to the feeder. Please stay in the chairs for viewing. The bird might go to the front feeder but at this point likes the back one the most. The hummer guards it on and off. I will be home around 4pm and can help out. Let me know if you might visit.


Thanks!

From: DAVID A LEATHERMAN <daleatherman...>
Subject: [cobirds] Grandview Cemetery in Fort Collins today and yesterday (Larimer), September 18 and 19.
I've had seven species at Fort Collins' Grandview Cemetery in the last two days that are new for that location in 2018.


Tuesday, September 18th Highlights (* = first of year species for the location)

*Song Sparrow - along the ditch south of the entry bridge

*Hermit Thrush - southeast corner spruce near the Pump House

*Hammond's Flycatcher (seen at close range briefly, couldn't get a photo)

*Northern Harrier (flyover going e to w)

Townsend's Warbler (2)

Ruby-crowned Kinglet (2-3)

possible Townsend's Solitaire (fleeting glimpse)


Wednesday, September 19th Highlights

*American Redstart (imm. male)

*Broad-winged Hawk (1 adult flying low, w to e, usually see 1-5 in the spring but was beginning to think this was going to be a "miss")

*Osprey (high flyover going n to s)

Ruby-crowned Kinglet (several)

Yellow-rumped Warbler (2)

Townsend's Warbler (heard)

Wilson's Warbler (several)


The mixed flocks of neotropical migrants seem to be concentrating in big American elms that have European elm scale infestations. Their big attraction, judging by their very hyper, fast-twitch movements high in the tree crowns are yellowjacket wasps. The yellowjackets seek the sugary excrement ("honeydew") of the immobile scale insects.


A big flock of Chipping Sparrows has been present for over a week, feeding mostly up in spruce crowns on seeds from cones. Brown Creepers are starting to arrive, presumably to capitalize on hackberry psyllid emergence (7-10 days from now) and overwintering. Red-breasted Nuthatches are their normal busy selves caching spruce seeds wherever they can stick them.


Total species for the year at Grandview now stands at 94 which is higher than last year at this time but about average for mid-September over the years. My goal is always 100 (totally arbitrary) and there's a chance this year with a little luck and several visits.

Subject: [cobirds] Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Yard, Jefferson County
Hi all,

I have gotten very short, bad looks at a Ruby-throated Hummingbird in my yard for the last 2 days. I believe it is an immature but, again I am not getting the best looks. I have been in and out a bunch, which has not helped. It is not an adult male. I've had females and males in my yard, fall time, which sat longer at the feeders. The bird has a notched tail, emerald green upperparts[except for the crown which is duller ], very white underparts, which got my attention immediately when the bird flew. There is no tail wagging like in a Black-chinned, and the bird has a very blackish lore area, with dark auriculars. The primary #10 tip is narrowed. When the bird is perched, the tail is longer than the wingtips.


As of right now, there are 4, Broad-tailed Hummingbirds, 1, Rufous and the Ruby-throated[I grew up with these hummingbirds, when I was younger, living back in Conn].


After I complained about all the dominant Rufous in my yard, immature Calliope finally showed up [1-2 a day for 2 and a half weeks]. I was so glad to see Calliope after I had had so few the last 2 years.

,

As usual folks are welcome, but I can not promise the bird will be here. Park on the west side of, 4400 Bow Mar Dr. and walk up driveway. Chairs are in the backyard and in the frontyard where feeders are. Lighting is best in the back of the house, from 8:30-10, and 2-3:30pm. Lighting is best in the front, from 9am-5pm. Please leave me a phone message [303-906-5479] as to what time you plan on stopping by, or leave me an email. I will try to be around but my schedule is pretty inconsistent. I will update my sightings of this bird.


Happy Birding and Good luck!

A juv. Broad-winged Hawk just got the heart pumping for me and a bunch of
Rock Pigeons as it cruised over central Boulder, 49th and Pearl Pkwy.

Subject: [cobirds] Pueblo Reservoir, Pueblo Co. 9/19 (jaegers and more)
Quite a few interesting birds were around Pueblo Reservoir this morning,
for a little while, then seemed to have disappeared.

I spotted a jaeger on the water far out from South Shore Marina at Pueblo
Reservoir, that didn't look like the Long-tailed, I had seen last week. I
thought, well it must be it, though then I spotted the juvenile *Long-tailed
Jaeger *(which has been around for a week), out from the tires at South
Shore Marina. So, I then re-looked at the other jaeger, and it was still
out there, so there were TWO jaegers! The far away jaeger looked darker.
I watched it in the scope sitting on the water for like 20 minutes, and
finally it flew right toward me, I quickly realized this is not another
Long-tailed Jaeger, then it found some terns and gulls to chase around, and
flew off over the dam, this bird turned out to be a *Parasitic Jaeger!*
The terns presents were mostly *Common Terns*, with a few Forster's and
later one Black Tern. Late on Bill Maynard and I saw a first year *Lesser
Black-backed Gull* and seven *Red-necked Phalarope* were swimming out in
the middle of the Reservoir. We also had a flyby Baird's Sandpiper and two
American Avocets all from near the South Shore Marina.

Below the dam, near Snakeskin Picnic Area, at Lake Pueblo State Park, I saw
a western race *Palm Warbler*, my first one in Colorado since 2015!

It was a pretty fun couple of hours, lucky a couple other birders got to
see a few of the birds mentioned above. Both jaegers seemed to be missing
mid-day, however.

We are open 6 days per week, Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through

Amazing find! Apparently they are still rare on the east coast, but have
them every fall or so somewhere there. Could this bird have been blown by
Hurricane Florence?

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report Chico Basin Ranch - 9/18/18
I had a very short morning of banding today due to the heat, but I had the
usual rush of warblers. Out of the 28 birds banded today, 20 were caught at
7:50. Amongst the sea of Wilson's Warblers was a hatch year Magnolia
Warbler that appeared to be male.

Here's the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Wilson's Warbler: 22
Orange-crowned Warbler: 2
Magnolia Warbler: 1
Swainson's Thrush: 1
Gray Catbird: 2

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). This week I'm opening nets at 6:50 and banding until 11:50
weather permitting.

Folks, I returned to the south end of Boyd Lake late yesterday afternoon with David Wade in his canoe, hoping to confirm my earlier report of Least Tern and Arctic Tern. However, we were only able to confirm Forster’s, Common and Black Terns. Photo of juv Black Tern included below.

Good birding,

Subject: [cobirds] Fork-tailed Flycatcher Photos
Irene Fortune was nice enough to allow us to share the photos her husband
Jim took of the Fork-tailed Flycatcher seen on Friday morning in northern
Larimer County. Unfortunately, the bird was never refound and may have
rode the tailwind straight to Wyoming before any birders made it out to the
site. Great find Jim!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/16/18
Some of you will remember how slow last fall's migration was; all of the
Bird Conservancy banding stations experienced low numbers. How much better
is this year? Well, we just finished the 3rd of our 7 weeks of banding,
and yesterday we passed the total banded all last season.

But even in a good year there are slow days, and this hot morning was one
of them. Banded only 24 birds. Highlight was a lovely female Tennessee
Warbler:

Dusky Flycatcher 1
Red-breasted Nuthatch 1 (FOS)
House Wren 2
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Tennessee Warbler 1
Yellow Warbler 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 2
Common Yellowthroat 1
Wilson's Warbler 11
Lincoln's Sparrow 2

Remember we are closed tomorrow, Monday. Then back in business
Tuesday-Sunday, weather permitting, through October 14. We are opening nets
at 6:30 and should have birds back at the station by 7:15. We will close
most days by about 11:30, earlier as long as this heat continues. 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!

The bird is still present as of this a.m. It is located in the south west
end of the cottonwood tree line. We saw it from both looking east into the
Cottonwoods and on the shoreline darting in and out of the willows.

Subject: [cobirds] Prewitt and Jumbo Entrance Requirements
Stop - Look - Obey. Was leading a DFO Field Trip yesterday (09/15/2018) to
Prewitt State Wildlife area in Washington County, CO. We were stopped on
one of the roads in the SWA by a Wildlife Enforcement Officer (Game Warden)
and he checked all of us to make sure that we had either a hunting or
fishing license or a special access permit. The only exception to this rule
is if you are younger than 18 or older than 64. Birding is NOT an exception
to this rule - which is only applicable to Jumbo and Prewitt SWA's. The
fine is $70. Most of us on the trip were over 64 but a couple were not. One
had a Daily Fishing License that was purchased for the Trip. This is NOT
acceptable - but the Officer made an exception. The other person did not
have any license/permit. They were required to purchase a license that day
or face a fine ($70). I am posting this as a warning if you plan to Bird
these areas in the future.

I scanned Cherry Creek Reservoir, seeking my annual Sabine's Gull fix,
but alas found none.
There were two basic plumage Red-necked Phalaropes spinning, best seen
from the north end of the East Shades, looking out toward the dam.
Also a Black Tern.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/15/18
It doesn't get much better than this morning at the banding station -
Mid-September can be the perfect time, as the sparrows and other late
migrants are starting to arrive and before the warblers have finished.
Counting recaps that had been banded earlier in the season, we caught a
total of 69 birds of 19 species, and our visitors - it was our Ed Dept
volunteer appreciation morning, so many of our dedicated, hard working
volunteers were out with their families - got up-close looks at a lot of
cool birds. Competing for the coolest and rarest of the day were a
Golden-crowned Kinglet and a Sage Thrasher, neither of which is regularly
caught here. (SATH won, only the third in the last 10 or so years.)
Here's a breakdown of the 56 new birds:

Dusky Flycatcher 1
Warbling Vireo 1
House Wren 1
Golden-crowned Kinglet 1 (FOS)
Hermit Thrush 2 (FOS)
Sage Thrasher 1 (FOS)
Orange-crowned Warbler 7
Yellow Warbler 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 2
Townsend's Warbler 1
Common Yellowthroat 1
Wilson's Warbler 20
Green-tailed Towhee 1
Chipping Sparrow 6
Clay-colored Sparrow 2
Lincoln's Sparrow 5
White-crowned Sparrow, Gambel's 3 (FOS)

We are open 6 days a week (closed Monday), weather permitting through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30, earlier as long as
this heat continues. 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] Rocky Flats NWR is now open and a hotspot, Jefferson Co.
Today was the opening of Rocky Flats NWR in Northern Jefferson Co. Parking
is on the north side off of CO 128 (120th Ave). There is great potential
for grasslands species although this morning I had only Vesper Sparrows,
Western Meadowlarks, Mourning Doves, and 2 *Sage Thrashers*. I only walked
south to the draw with the stream below Westgate Rd. and the Lindsey Farm
Loop.

Spotted Towhees were common, but quiet in the shrubs below the mesa. There
are a few patches of trees and one stream crossing that held a few
migrants. *Lincoln Sparrow, Gray Flycatcher, Dusky Flycatcher, Wilson's
Warbler, Chipping Sparrow* and a few locals: Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, House
Wren, Rock Wren, Green-tailed Towhee, Song Sparrow.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report Chico Basin Ranch - 9/15/18
Activity shows no sign of slowing down here at the Chico Basin Ranch
banding station. I broke my record for number of Wilson's Warblers banded
in a single day. Nets were closed at 11:10 because of heat and wind, but I
caught 11 birds on the closing run, including the season's first Audubon's
Warbler. In addition to the list below, I caught a recapture Western
Flycatcher that was first banded two days ago. Today's total was 55 birds
banded of 12 species. The season's total is now 471 birds and 37 species.

Here's the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Wilson's Warbler: 41
Western Flycatcher: 2
Orange-crowned Warbler: 2
Chipping Sparrow: 1
Audubon's Warbler: 1
Warbling Vireo: 1
Cassin's Vireo: 1
Lazuli Bunting: 1
Lincoln's Sparrow: 2
MacGillivray's Warbler: 1
Swainson's Thrush: 1
Spotted Towhee: 1

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). Next week I will be opening nets at 6:50 and banding until 11:50
weather permitting.

Subject: [cobirds] "Pine Warbler" ID, CSR, El Paso Co, Sat
Hey again COBirders,

Thank you to the several replies to my warbler ID query yesterday. While it was a split decision, the majority of respondents gave good evidence why they thought it was a F Blackpoll Warbler instead. That’s fine - it makes more sense than a Pine Warbler. I amend my report!

Today the heat, calm and clear skies continued, with fewer birds, but still a late arrival of warblers after 10:00, when it was already hot. Nothing too unusual today, 29 birds banded: 12 Wilson’s Warblers, 1 Juv M MacGillivary’s Warbler, 3 Orange-crowned Warblers (celata ssp), 2 more Clay-colored Sparrows (!), and the higher numbers of Lincoln’s Sparrows continues - 6 more today (35 this week).

Have a good weekend,
Steve Brown

Subject: [cobirds] Re: FORK-TAILED FLYCATCHER near Rawhide Power Plant (Larimer)


Greetings all. I bolted out to Rawhide as soon as I could after hearing
about and seeing a photo of the Fork-tailed Flycatcher. I searched far and
wide, taxing my car on a rutted out two-track, up and down Co Rd 5 and the
roads to the West but came up empty. I counted 8 other birders while I was
out there and I haven't heard of anyone else seeing it. It's anybody's
guess where it got off to.

I was under the impression that it was seen around 9 am but that was wrong.
It was seen around 6 am and I started searching around 2 pm, eight hours
after the fact.

I did see a photo and have no doubts about the identification. It was dark
above with a black cap, white underneath and the eponymous tail streamers.
I would post the photo but it's not mine and not my decision to. I will
certainly ask for permission and put it up if okayed.

Steve,
Great job, and thank you for sharing these great photos. Helps us all think
harder.
I'm not too familiar with Pine W. in fall from my time East (e.g., eye-ring
articulation not too pronounced). Thus, a couple details here make me think
Blackpoll. Definitely not Orange-crowned or Tennessee from tail length,
undertail coverts, and some other structural things.
Great job!
Thank you for sharing all your hard work with us birders!

Subject: [cobirds] Curve-billed Thrasher-Bobcat Ridge/Larimer County
All,

I hiked Bobcat Ridge today hoping to maybe nab the Lewis’s Woodpeckers and Eastern Bluebirds that have been reported at Bobcat throughout this summer. I struck out on both but still saw some great birds and proceeded to kick my own butt in the process. For the record, turning 40 does not automatically make you wiser because I’m not sure I would have done that the way I did knowing what I know now. That hike was intense. I had not done the entire loop before. I said things under my breath that ranged from religious (Moses is holier than ever) to offensive (kiss your mother with that mouth?). It’s probably better I didn’t know the elevation gain prior to.

I completed a 9 mile loop with most of the good birds in the Mahoney “bowl” portion of the Ginny Trail where it meets the Power Line Trail. There were several Wilson’s and Yellow-rumped Warblers with a single male Townsend’s Warbler mixed in. A Gray Flycatcher aggressively chased a Dusky Flycatcher to and fro. One of each Kinglet species were mixing with a large flock of Chipping Sparrows. A single Warbling Vireo was there as well.

Best bird was a Curve-billed Thrasher hanging with a couple of Sage Thrashers on the Lower Valley Loop trail 100 yards south of where it meets up with the Power Line trail. I initially saw it on the ground right in front of me but flew off to the top of some rabbitbrush offering great views of the obviously longer and more dramatically curved black bill as well the drab breast with spots rather than the white streakiness of its nearby cousins. It disappeared before I could get my scope up for some pics.

I was blissfully unaware of the mega-rarity up north and though at one point I was convinced that I could give Hurricane Florence a run for her money on who was leaking more moisture, I was just happy to be enjoying some late summer evening birding and not be driving College Avenue for a few hours.

Bird is the word!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/14/18
The morning was nice and cool until about 9:30, when the temp and humidity
seemed to soar. Our first run was small but a lovely mix of species -
three warbler species, 2 wren species, Chipping Sparrow, Downy Woodpecker
and Dusky Flycatcher. Our last run was 6 Wilson's. Overall numbers down
significantly from recent days; only 28 birds banded:

Downy Woodpecker 1
Western Wood-pewee 1
Dusky Flycatcher 1
House Wren 2
Marsh Wren 1 (this was our second MAWR of the season; raising the total
caught at Barr in 31 years from 6 to 8!)
Orange-crowned Warbler 1
Yellow Warbler 2
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 3
MacGillivray's Warbler 1
Wilson's Warbler 12
Chipping Sparrow 2
Song Sparrow 1

We are open 6 days a week (closed Monday), weather permitting through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30, earlier this week
because of 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!

The bird was photographed this morning at 9 a.m. There is a 2-track road that runs north along the solar panels (entry from Buckeye) and we think that is where it was seen. Lots of people up there looking. It is a long-tailed adult.

Subject: [cobirds] Pine Warbler (?), CSR, El Paso Co, Fri
Hey COBirders,

It was hot and still banding at Clear Spring Ranch this morning. Like others, I TRIED to close early for the heat, but had a large wave of Wilson’s Warblers and Lincoln’s Sparrows come in at 10:30. Included with them was a mystery warbler. 42 birds banded, including Mountain White-crowned, Lincoln’s, Lark, Vesper, Song, Chipping, Clay-colored, and Brewer’s Sparrows, and a juv F Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

At first, from a distance, I thought the warbler was Orange-crowned, because of the face - but it had bright white undertails - so maybe Tennessee?? But it was way too big. Best match I could find was imm. male Pine Warbler, but I am not sure, so I am posting these photos for others to weigh-in. (below)


Feet look yellow, but I didn’t get the impression of bright yellow legs and feet like commonly seen on a Blackpoll, just lighter on the underside.
Wing Length 75mm, Tail 52mm - which is a stretch for F Blackpoll, but fits for M Pine.
I think the undertail looks longer than is usual for a Blackpoll, maybe more overall like Pine.
Overall color looked pretty bright to me, so I thought M Pine. Outer primary coverts look edged, but narrow, so I thought Imm male. Not much white in the tail… more like Pine?

Ok, so what do the experts think? I am open to interpretations.

Thanks,
Steve Brown

Subject: [cobirds] Prothonotary Warbler - Chatfield N. Boat Ramp
Myron Gerhard found a Prothonotary Warbler at the Chatfield north boat ramp
in the cottonwood trees and willows south of the parking area. Mark Chavez,
Myron and Rob Raker all got photos.

Mark and I also saw the Parasitic Jaeger chasing a Bald Eagle that had a
very big fish. The eagle struggled with its heavy load and eventually made
it to the trees with its prize to the NW side of the lake and we lost the
Jaeger for a while.

All three Jaegers are still at the lake. They were at the East end of the
lake below the dam.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report Chico Basin Ranch - 9/14/18
Today I closed nets early due to the heat, but I still banded 50 birds of
11 species. I finally caught the season's first two Lazuli Buntings, which
have been hanging around the station for a while. On my way out I spotted a
lone Pink-sided Junco, so hopefully I'll catch some juncos soon.

Here is the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Yellow Warbler: 2
Wilson's Warbler: 27
Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 1
Hammond's Flycatcher: 2
House Wren: 3
Orange-crowned Warbler: 7
Chipping Sparrow: 1
Lazuli Bunting: 2
Lincoln's Sparrow: 3
Green-tailed Towhee: 1
American Robin: 1

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). This week I am opening nets at 6:40 and banding until 11:40
weather permitting.

In the first 1/2 mile of the two-mile section of the Rainbow Lakes Rd. (Takes off of Peak-to-Peak hwy. 6.2 miles north of Nederland) I encountered a small flock of migrants that included at least two Townsend’s warblers (female and juv. ). Other species included ruby-crowned kinglet (singing), mtn. chickadee, and yellow-rumped warbler). All were feeding in the gorgeous yellow aspen leaves.

Subject: [cobirds] Continuing jaegers and Sabine's Gull this evening 9/13, Chatfield
Our DFO trip this evening observed all three *jaegers* of the two species
this evening from about 5:50-6:40. We viewed from the North Boat Launch,
and they were mostly very active in the areas from the east side of the dam
to the area off the Handicapped Fisherman access, in Douglas County. One
Long-tailed came close by us in Jefferson once. Otherwise, the birds were
distant and windy conditions made it challenging, but lighting is good from
the boat launch in the evening.

An adult *Sabine's Gull* was cooperative close by out viewing point, in
JeffCo.

Thank you Myron for the find, and for helping us while we were viewing.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/13/18
As we approach the end of our third week, all indications are that this was
a really, really good year for birds that breed north of us and migrate
south through the front range. We caught another 62 birds today, despite
the heat and having to close 5 nets because of marauding raccoons.
Wilson's Warblers, which pretty much always determine how big a year we
have in terms of numbers, continue to come through at a very high pace.
We've started to see comment-worthy high fat levels on both WIWAs and
OCWAs, a sign that at least some of these migrating birds are doing really
well. So, hope this all continues! Here is a break-down of the 62 birds
today:

Downy Woodpecker 1 new, 1 banded last year
Hammond's Flycatcher 1 (FOS)
Cassin's Vireo 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 3
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 4
MacGillivray's Warbler 2
Common Yellowthroat 3
Wilson's Warbler 40
Chipping Sparrow 4
Lincoln's Sparrow 1

We are open 6 days a week (closed Monday), weather permitting through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30, earlier this week
because of 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!

Today was a very busy morning of banding after the first two net runs. I

first Green-tailed Towhee of the season was banded bringing this fall's
total up to 35 species.

Here is the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Wilson's Warbler: 40
Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 2
Western Flycatcher: 2
Orange-crowned Warbler: 12
Hammond's Flycatcher: 1
Western Wood-Pewee: 2
Chipping Sparrow: 1
MacGillivray's Warbler: 2
Clay-colored Sparrow: 1
Lincoln's Sparrow: 6
Green-tailed Towhee: 1
American Robin: 2

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). This week I am opening nets at 6:40 and banding until 11:40
weather permitting.

Hi all,

Besides for the Long-tailed Jaeger, the other highlights were two adult
Lesser Black-backed Gulls on the South Shore Marina tires at Pueblo
Reservoir this morning. I didn't see anything Sabine's Gulls, which will
hopefully be around soon down here. Who knows if these birds have been
around for a few days before now, as I haven't had a chance to check the
Reservoir for a week or so.

My warbler searching below the dam for like 45 minutes, produced six
species, Wilson's, Yellow, Orange-crowned, Virginia's, MacGillivray's, and
Yellow-rumped (Audubon's) Warblers. Hopefully some more interesting ones
will come for the Annual Pueblo County Fall Bird Count on Saturday.

Good birding,

I am reasonably sure after watching it in flight, the bird is a juvenile
Long-tailed Jaeger. The bird is on the water again, just west of the
concrete part of dam, in the south east part of the reservoir. It is too
far for photos for me, maybe someone will see it and get some sort of
photos. I am going to go look for warblers now.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/12/18
This is the first time I can remember when hot temperatures did not seem to
have much impact on bird numbers - even with an early close of many nets
(those most in the sun) we managed to catch 65 new birds. Wilson's
Warblers, not surprisingly, continue to dominate:

Downy Woodpecker 2
Western Wood-pewee 1
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 4
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 4
Townsend's Warbler 1
Common Yellowthroat 2
Wilson's Warbler 43
Western Tanager 1
Spotted Towhee 1 (FOS, and a very young bird)
Chipping Sparrow 3
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1

We are open 6 days a week (closed Monday), weather permitting through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30, earlier this week
because of 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: Re: [cobirds] Kinney Trail in Golden
JoAnn,
The eBird hotspot named "Kinney Run Trail" is indeed an important birding
area in Golden,
with 96 species of birds seen there in the past few years, since records
have been kept.
This represents a great many sightings of individual birds and is a
reflection of the rich
avifauna of the area.
To close this to pedestrian traffic would be a shame from that point of
view.
However, safety first and if the hikers and birders are in danger from
speeding mountain bikes,
it might be reasonable. The other solution would be to close it to cyclists!

I would encourage birders to try this trail and submit checklists to eBird
before it's too late.

Please let me know if I can help in any way. Gerald Baines has been the
most active birder there
and knows the area well.
Thanks for your interest, JoAnn, on behalf of Evergreen Audubon.

Thanks to the heads up from Myron Gerhard's sighting on Sept 8th, I had the

I was surprised to see the Parasitic and Long-tailed Jaegers hanging out

quite comfortable and unperturbed by each others presence. Their behavior
was more typical of a family unit than separate species!

I'm wondering if anyone with more experience can elucidate on the group

I had to close nets a little early today because of high winds, so I caught
a few less birds than usual. I banded 37 birds of 8 species, including the
season's first Golden-crowned Kinglet, which is not a very common capture
at the station. I also had 2 recaptured birds, a Brown Thrasher and a
Spotted Towhee.

Here is the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Wilson's Warbler: 23
Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 3
Orange-crowned Warbler: 4
Golden-crowned Kinglet: 1
Chipping Sparrow: 1
Lincoln's Sparrow: 1
Gray Catbird: 2
Brown Thrasher: 2

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). This week I am opening nets at 6:40 and banding until 11:40,
weather permitting.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report Chico Basin Ranch - 9/11/18
Numbers at the Chico Basin Ranch Station were more manageable today
compared to a super busy day yesterday. I banded 40 birds of 11 species.
Three new species were added to the season's list: Northern Waterthrush,
Gray Catbird, and Warbling Vireo. In addition to the list below I caught a
young Broad-tailed Hummingbird and I had a close call with a Sharp-shinned
Hawk that escaped the net before I got to it.

Here is the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Wilson's Warbler: 22
House Wren: 1
Orange-crowned Warbler: 4
Northern Waterthrush: 1
Chipping Sparrow: 3
Warbling Vireo: 1
Lincoln's Sparrow: 2
Hermit Thrush: 1
Gray Catbird: 1
American Robin: 1
Brown Thrasher: 3

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). This week I am opening nets at 6:40 and banding until 11:40
weather permitting.

Subject: [cobirds] Grandview Cemetery in Fort Collins today and yesterday (Larimer, September 10-11,2018)

Birds of interest the last two days at Grandview Cemetery at the west terminus of Mountain Avenue in Fort Collins are the following:


Monday, September 10

Dark-eyed Junco (2) First of season (FOS) at low elevation for me

Ruby-crowned Kinglet (1) FOS at low elevation for me

MacGillivray's Warbler (1f) along the ditch, a species I only see at this site maybe once or twice a year

Olive-sided Flycatcher (1, has been favoring the thin-crowned very tall spruce in Section S (Soldier Monument section in the very center))

Western Wood-Pewee (at least 5)

Bald Eagle (1a, flyover)

Mourning Dove (likes to sit on top of the fireman statue's head just e of Section S, apparently lacks appropriate reverence for first-responders, or perhaps thinks he's a dalmatian)


[cid:ee070561-14d4-4e5c-a389-a773c8eb043b]


Chipping Sparrow (good size flock of mostly juveniles roaming around)


Tuesday, September 11

Townsend's Warbler (4, in pines, spruce and elms, biggest group of this species I've seen this migration, distinctive chip gives them away)

Woodhouse Scrub-Jay (1) Quick fly-thru, first of year (FOY) at Grandview, I think only my second at the site in 44+ years

Clay-colored Sparrow (1 in with Chipping Sparrow flock, FOY at Grandview)

Turkey Vulture (1 way up high, going w to e)


First ever at Grandview giant spreadwing (damselfly).


[cid:3bb40565-8369-4244-949c-42a72e6796c6]


First ever guy practicing golf for an extended time wholly WITHIN the cemetery. Apparently inspired by chipping sparrows, he repeated used his 9 iron to hit a ball back and forth within Section 8. As his ball ricocheted off headstones, going this way and that, I had to wonder if someday "links pinball" would be an Olympic sport? All while wearing a Confederate flag ball cap, go figure.


Miscellany

Brown Creeper (FOS at low elevation, in my apartment complex east of campus on 10Sept)


Green Heron (2) Prospect Ponds Natural Area, 11Sept, s of Prospect on Sharp Point Drive, first pond south of feedlot pond


Barn-Owl (all (5, or was it 6?) young of the family under the Prospect Bridge at the Poudre River apparently fledged last night, one bird (a parent?) still evident 50 feet south of the whitewash-stained square nest hole in an identical hole near the south side of the bridge. This square has a single pipe running thru it and the bird was sitting a few feet in from the opening, as viewed from the bike trail.

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/11/18
I was thinkin' heat and so did not expect to catch many birds today. Did
not count on the Wilson's Warblers migrating anyway, then out feeding early
before the heat drove them into the shade. 84 total new birds plus 1
return caught today, about 65 of those by 8 a.m. Here's the breakdown:

Dusky Flycatcher 2
Black-capped Chickadee 1, banded last year
House Wren 3
Ruby-crowned Kinglet 3
Orange-crowned Warbler 6
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon's 4
Townsend's Warbler 1
Wilson's Warbler 56
Chipping Sparrow 1
Clay-colored Sparrow 1
Brewer's Sparrow 1
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 5

We are open 6 days a week (closed Monday), weather permitting through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30, earlier this week
because of 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] Blackbirds at Jimm Hamm Nature Area (Longmont)
All:

The counts of Yellow-headed & Red-winged black birds, Starlings and
Grackles the past two weeks at Jim Hamm have been all over the place. Last
night it was 300 (probably closer to 500) Grackles that were the
predominant species, and the YHBL and RWBL counts have been up and down.
In my previous post on 8/31 I called out this weekend (9/13-14) as the
Blackbird Bonanza, but the birds counts lately have not been as high as
they were on 8/31.

Far be it from me to say "Don't come out", but I think/hope that the really
big numbers of 10,000+ birds will be a little later this month. It's still
a great place to bird, albeit a little small. Union Reservoir is right
across the road so easy to get some great birding in if you chose to come
out.

I'll post again when the counts go up, but you might put the weekend of
9/27-28 on your calendars as a reminder. In 2016 & 2017 I had seemed to be
the only birder out there before sunrise and I'm really excited to have
others see all the activity out there.

From: Kevin DeBoer <kevdeboer...>
Subject: [cobirds] Re: Jaegers Chatfield SP
I observed all 3 birds this afternoon from 1:45-2:15 from the north boat
launch. Originally, the birds appeared to be up against the dam adjacent
from the Marina Sand Spit but as boaters moved around the lake they moved
further toward the north where identifiable marks could be seen with
binoculars from the point at the boat launch.

Although identifiable marks could be seen that allowed me to compare the
larger, dark-morphed bird to the photos obtained by Mark, I'd love if
someone could help point out what features of the bird that can be seen
from a distance, or even in the photos, point toward Parasitic and not
Pomarine. I've had some experience with both, but the behavior I observed
today reminded me more of what I've seen from Pomarine. I'm sure someone
with more experience has a reason for the ID of Parasitic - can you please
share with the group? Is it the dark cinnamon undertail noted by Gregg?

Thanks,

Kevin DeBoer

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

Yup, another Northern Waterthrush was banded today at Clear Spring Ranch (#17 for the fall, and the latest one I’ve done in September). This guy just made it - nets were closed at 11:15, but two were still to be furled, so only open 6”, and that’s where it was caught! After 46o at dawn, it got hot pretty quickly, and activity died, too. 86o at closing.

For other species: Spizellas are still around, but in lower numbers - 28 Chipping Sparrows today, and 1 Clay-colored Sparrow. The first Gambell’s White-crowned Sparrow (juv) showed up to today, after two Mountain White-crowns over the weekend, and a few Lincoln’s, Vesper, and Lark Sparrows were caught coming out of the hay fields. An unexpected 50 birds banded today.

Have a good week,

Steve Brown

Subject: [cobirds] Black Swifts Return to Home Lake


Yesterday I photographed about 20 Black Swifts over Home Lake (Rio Grande
County). Not nearly as many as previous report, but still a sight to see.
Home lake remains a hotspot for warblers and shorebirds. Insects are still
very plentiful and are drawing birds like a magnet.

Great shots of the Jaegers. Those are nicely detailed and will help with
our determination of the road killed Jaeger we found last week in the San
Luis valley.

Subject: [cobirds] Check your eBird data for unannounced alterations
Cobirders,


I have recently found HUNDREDS of my eBird checklists changed with no notification to me.


1. All checklists prior to June 1, 2005, have had the protocol changed to "Incidental" rather than travelling, etc. I have changed a few of these, but the volume would make doing all of them too much.

2. Checklists flagged as having location problems, even though they are for an eBird hotspot. I do have some that are too wide an area, e.g. county level, but not many. All these were changed to "Incidental".

3. Checklists flagged as "List Building Checklists", whatever that is.


I have been an eBird user since it started, and it seems blanket changes of checklists and telling me they are no longer available for public view without notifying me and giving me a chance to fix a problem is defeating the purpose of the original call for citizen science.


Have any of you had these or other problems? I have emailed eBird, but have received no replies. Disappointing.

Today, I went to Chatfield to hopefully see the jaegers found by Myron Gerhard on Sunday afternoon. We were able to identify 2 Long-tailed (one light and 1 intermediate juvenile) and 1 Parasitic Jaeger(dark juvenile) on the same body of water on the same day. Are you kidding me!!!! A great thanks to Myron getting the word out on this great find! Photos of the birds can be seen below:

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Birding Trip With Bizarre Ending
Quite a find! I will cast another vote for juvenile Long-tailed Jaeger.

A few other features not previously mentioned:
1. Juvenal plumage thanks to all those pale tips to the upperwing coverts;
plus the barring on the undertail coverts
2. Barring on the upper and undertail coverts is thick, bold and even
3. Overall hue is cool
4. Stubby bill
5. Proportionally long tail (compared to body length)
6. Central retrices project noticeably (compared to the rest of tail
feathers) and are not sharply pointed

My two cents,
Eric

Subject: [cobirds] Chatfield Jaegers
Folks,


There has been some exciting birds at Chatfield both yesterday and today! Three jaegers have been offering good study for those who are patient and interested. Photos of all three birds identify them to two species. Long-tailed Jaeger and Parasitic Jaeger. Tony Leukering promises to chime in on these wandering skuas in the near future. Three jaegers on one pond in Colorado is worth a look. If you have the time, or can make the time, go check out the spectacle at Chatfield.

Norm, the ponds north of the actual reservoir and a part of the SWA are
open for teal hunting as season just came in this past weekend (It's in
until the 16th of September); I'm quite sure that's the reason there was a
paucity of wildfowl on these ponds.

Sapsucker, and Black-headed Grosbeak.

Here is the summary of newly banded birds for the day:
Ruby-crowned Kinglet: 1
Wilson's Warbler: 31
House Wren: 1
Orange-crowned Warbler: 3
Chipping Sparrow: 2
Lincoln's Sparrow: 3
Blue Grosbeak: 2
Western Tanager: 2
Swainson's Thrush: 1
Hermit Thrush: 1
Red-naped Sapsucker: 1
Black-headed Grosbeak: 1
Northern Mockingbird: 2
American Robin: 4

You are welcome to visit the banding station. I'll be banding through the
first week of October and nets will be open 6 days a week (Monday through
Saturday). This week I am opening nets at 6:40 and banding until 11:40
weather permitting.

Hey COBirders,

I banded a late juv Northern Waterthrush this morning at Clear Spring Ranch, #16 for the season. I’ve only had two after this date in 7 falls.

The Spizella flock has mostly moved on, finally. I still caught 20 Chipping Sparrows, 4 Clay-colored Sparrows, and a single Brewer’s Sparrow today, but that is way off the numbers I had last week.
There was good species diversity arriving this morning, and an unexpected wave of Wilson’s Warblers arrived about 9:45 when it was already hot, clear and calm. Wonder where they were all morning!

Also good sparrow diversity, with Lark Sparrow, Vesper, Lincolns, Savannah, Song, and a couple Ad Green-tailed Towhees. 54 birds banded today.

I don’t expect much this week with the hot, dry forecast, but we’ll see!

Good Birding,

Steve Brown

Subject: [cobirds] Birding Trip With Bizarre Ending

I led a San Luis valley birding trip on Friday, Sept 7, and 11 of us had a great day afield. We stayed on the west side of the Valley as this seems to be where most of the birds are congregating during this outstanding fall migration. We tallied 94 species and the best birds were 7 species of warblers including Townsend's and Northern Waterthrush, Osprey, Lincoln's Sparrow, Stilt Sandpiper, and Burrowing Owl.

As we finished up Cat Creek and were driving back to our vehicles, we found an apparent road killed bird on the side of the road and stopped to examine it. After considerable head scratching and wonderment, we determined it to be a seabird! And more specifically a Jaeger of some variety.

As long as I have been keeping records in the San Luis Valley, I have no records for Jaegers here. However, I have long suspected they pass through our area and that sooner or later one might be found. So I would invite you to look at the images (roadkilled) of the bird, and let me know what species you think it is. It had a noticeable broken wing on one side and was found on the side of the road. We estimated its length at 15-16 inches. It was still rather ripe and was killed in the last few days by our estimate.

I have posted a number of pictures of the bird on my website for your perusal. Look in the folder "Jaeger Plus Warblers" and let me know what you think. We were all very excited by this strange and bewildering ending to our adventure.

Subject: [cobirds] Fountain Creek Fall Annual Bird Count, Sat., Sept 8
CO Birders,

About 30-35 birders spread into 5 main areas of Fountain Creek Regional Park (just south of Colorado Springs) for the annual fall bird count. This was the 26th year of this count, and the earliest in fall it can be held (second Sat of Sept).

We had about 78 species, which is a bit above the long-term average of 70 species. Relatively uncommon birds were Brown Thrasher, Clay-colored and Brewers Sparrows, and one flock with 2 Cassin's Vireos and 1 Red-eyed Vireo.

A new bird for the count was Bank Swallow, and new highs were recorded for Common Grackle. After a precipitous rise from '02-'13, Eurasian Collared-Dove numbers appear to have leveled-off at about 50-55 the past 3 years. Interestingly, while tanagers, orioles, and grosbeaks moved through the park in previous weeks, no indivs in these families were recorded on Sat (far as I know).

I wish to extend a thank you to Diana Beatty for help with our data compilation.

Cordially,
Steve Getty, Colorado Springs

Subject: Re: [cobirds] RE: CFO Website Contact - Report a Rare Bird
First you subscribe to Birds, then you can post. There may be a delay of a
day or so when your membership request is made before it is processed. But
here is how:

How to Post to COBirds


1. First set up an account at Google
<https://www.google.com/accounts/NewAccount>
2. Then go to Google Groups <http://groups.google.com/> and type in the
name of our group: Colorado Birds
3. At the right side column click on "Apply for Group Membership". Fill
in the required information.
4. The form asks you how you want to receive the messages of other
members--no email, abridged email per 100 messages, digest email at one per
day, or email which is about 10 emails per day. You can experiment with
these choices and change your choice at any time by going to the right
column and clicking on "Edit my membership."
5. Your first few messages to COBirds will be reviewed by the Manager,
and if they look okay you will be approved and your subsequent messages
will be posted to COBirds immediately. (New members often make the common
mistakes mentioned below-- forgot to mention county, forget to sign name
with city and state.)

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/9/18
We finished off our second week with a relatively quiet day. After a
really busy week, it was nice to have a little more time with each bird.
We caught our 3rd and 4th Ovenbirds. All hatch year birds. We've only
caught 4 in a season once before, in 2002. Also enjoyed our first Brown
Thrasher. Here's the breakdown of the 29 new birds:

Brown Thrasher 1
Orange-crowned Warbler 4
Yellow Warbler 1
Ovenbird 2
Wilson's Warbler 19
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1

Tomorrow is Monday, so we will be closed. We will be back bright and early
on Tuesday, weather permitting. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have
birds back at the station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30.
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.

My guess, that is a juvenile Long-tailed Jaeger. They can be found eating

I led a San Luis valley birding trip on Friday, Sept 7, and 11 of us had a
great day afield. We stayed on the west side of the Valley as this seems to
be where most of the birds are congregating during this outstanding fall
migration. We tallied 94 species and the best birds were 7 species of
warblers including Townsend's and Northern Waterthrush, Osprey, Lincoln's
Sparrow, Stilt Sandpiper, and Burrowing Owl.

As we finished up Cat Creek and were driving back to our vehicles, we found
an apparent road killed bird on the side of the road and stopped to examine
it. After considerable head scratching and wonderment, we determined it to
be a seabird! And more specifically a Jaeger of some variety.

As long as I have been keeping records in the San Luis Valley, I have no
records for Jaegers here. However, I have long suspected they pass through
our area and that sooner or later one might be found. So I would invite you
to look at the images (roadkilled) of the bird, and let me know what
species you think it is. It had a noticeable broken wing on one side and
was found on the side of the road. We estimated its length at 15-16 inches.
It was still rather ripe and was killed in the last few days by our
estimate.

I have posted a number of pictures of the bird on my website for your
perusal. Look in the folder "Jaeger Plus Warblers" and let me know what you
think. We were all very excited by this strange and bewildering ending to
our adventure.

Subject: [cobirds] Jackson today
Nina Routh and I made a run out to Jackson Reservoir and State Park today, with some interesting results. Arriving fairly early, we decided to try for some migrant songbirds first, and the inlet canal seemed like a good place to start. We advanced across the road and up the canal, and immediately started taking heavy fire. Oops. Dove season. The gunfire didn't do a thing for the ambience, and being unarmed, retreat seemed to be the best strategy. Also productive, as in addition to many of the usual suspects, the parking area produced a bright male Baltimore oriole. He was a surprise in terms of geography and timing, being both off range and about a month late.
After congratulating ourselves sufficiently for the oriole, we decided it was time to try for some shorebirds, so we headed up to the SWA on the north end. Here we found a nice little flock of peeps, with the usual Baird's being joined by several semi-palmated and westerns. There were also three semi-palmated plovers, but not much else. The ponds were full of water and totally empty of waterfowl, which seemed odd.
Time to check the state park, where we were sure we'd find a plethora of migrants among the Russian olives and cottonwoods. Wrong. After and hour and a half of bird tails, bird wingtips and bird shadows, we conceded the field. I think we must have set some kind of record for the most total crappy looks at birds at one location.
After a brief debate as to the chances that any place else on the west side would be likely to have a bird or two, we agreed to take a quick look at the far northwest end, beyond the last parking lot, where a small marsh is surrounded by an olive/cottonwood thicket. Here we once again got a demonstration of the odd nature of birding, as we scored more birds in the first five minutes than in the previous hour plus. Right out of the chute we had a couple of oddities, a pair of female Bullock's orioles and a yellow-breasted chat, at which eBird didn't protest, but certainly raised an eyebrow. Over the next ten minutes we had eight eastern kingbirds, orange-crowned and yellow warblers, a red-tailed hawk, two western wood-pewees, a house wren, Brewer's and clay-colored sparrows and a partridge in a pear tree. Well, no partridge, but all of those others, plus some I am no doubt forgetting, over the course of a hundred-foot walk. It never hurts to try one more spot.....

Subject: [cobirds] 12 Northern Harrier or Mississippi Kite flyovers Cherry Creek SP.
Hi all -
went to Cherry Creek State Park. Highlights were the continueing immature
Mew Gull at the marina, teal/shoveler quadfecta at the bird observation
platform, and a Pectoral Sandpiper also at the observation platform. A good
day for Barn Swallows, also. In all, I estimate 150, and that is low.
Lastly, there were a group of about 12 hawks flying over Prairie Loop,
heading south. In my scope, they were silhouetted in the evening light, and
size was impossible to judge. However, they were long tailed and had had
somewhat pointed wings; too much so to be a buteo or TV. I think this
narrows it down between the Northern Harriers and Mississippi Kites (sounds
like a football match). I have heard of Mississippi Kites gathering in
large groups. Are Northern Harriers known to gather in groups this size,
and do they migrate in Colorado? Overall, assuming both species are
concivable in Arapahoe County, which species in more consistent with the
hawks' behavior?

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Band Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/8/18
We and about 100 other bird lovers enjoyed banding and the Barr Lake
Birding Festival today. It was slow for the first 1-2 hours, when once
again the fog rolled in and hung over the Park. Then it cleared and we
caught a nice mix of species for our visitors. Highlight of the day was a
Marsh Wren, the first caught at the station since 2007. Here's the
breakdown of new birds today:

Downy Woodpecker 1
Western Wood-pewee 1
White-breasted Nuthatch 1 (FOS)
House Wren 7 new, 1 banded 2017
Marsh Wren 1 (FOS and likely only of season!)
Orange-crowned Warbler 12
Yellow Warbler 3
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Aududon's 1
MacGillivray's Warbler 1
Common Yellowthroat 3
Wilson's Warbler 15
Chipping Sparrow 4
Lincoln's Sparrow 3

We are open 6 days per week (closed Mondays), weather permitting, through
October 14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the
station by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30. 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.

Saw the Blackburnian briefly at about 1:30 from the paved bike trail, just
arounda bend from the N parking lot (if I step to the east side of the bike
trail I can see cars). Red-eyed vireo also continues.

Subject: [cobirds] El Paso Eastern Wood-Pewee
Greetings,

Around 9:40 this morning in Memorial Park, downtown Colorado Springs I IDed an Eastern Wood-Pewee on the basis of relatively bright wingbars and almost entirely orange lower mandible. eBird checklist and further details can be found here. https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48368333
This bird and most of the passerine activity was occurring around the Veterans Memorial and YMCA parking lot while I was present. Other noteables were Cassin's Vireos and a female Lark Bunting, not common this close to the foothills. My time was limited, so there could be other fun passerines around.


Happy migration,
David Tonnessen
Colorado Springs, CO

Hi all, I have a female Blackburnian Warbler at Bobolink Trail in Boulder, Colorado. Probably about 1/4 mile S of the trailhead. Red-eyed Vireo in the area as well.

Subject: [cobirds] Hooded Warbler at Welchester Tree Grant Park (Jefferson)
was seen again at 8:40 AM. A beautiful male. It responded to playback chips
of this species. In the thickets over and near the stream on the trail
close to the stream (north side) close to the upstream bridge. I was able
to point out the location to four other birders; for one of whom it was a
life bird, and for another Colorado #399.

Welchester seldom seems very "birdy" to me but a couple of years ago there
was a singing Blue-winged Warbler and I have seen Rose-breasted Grosbeak
there.

Subject: [cobirds] Upland Sandpiper flyover Pueblo West
I seemed to have better luck finding interesting birds, when I am not
birding recently, then when I have been able to go birding. This morning,
while working in the yard, a calling flyover Upland Sandpiper came by! I
think this is my 2nd one for my yard in Pueblo West. Earlier in the week,
I saw my first ever White-breasted Nuthatch for my yard, which is up to 171
species of birds now!

Subject: [cobirds] Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Barr Lake Station, 9/7/18
Perspective. It seemed like we caught almost no birds this morning, but
that was mostly compared to the last few days. We actually process 61, but
39 of them were recaps, including a whopping 32 Wilson's. On a very grey,
foggy morning, the Warblers we'd banded over the last few days that had not
yet moved on were out and about and hitting our nets. Here is the
breakdown of the 22 new:

Orange-crowned Warbler 3
Yellow Warbler 1
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Aududon's 1
Wilson's Warbler 11
Chipping Sparrow 1
Clay-colored Sparrow 2
Song Sparrow 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 2

We are open 6 days per week (closed Mondays), weather permitting, through October
14. We are opening nets at 6:30 and should have birds back at the station
by 7:15. We will close most days by about 11:30. 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.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the annual Barr Lake Birding Festival; there will be
lots of great activities for people of all ages and lots of people!

This afternoon, I located a single Sanderling in amongst about 20 various
peeps. The group was on the East shore of Timnath Reservoir, south of the
entrance to the East bay. There is the domestic-looking mallard/Muscovy
duck on the same shore.

From: John Shenot <johnshenot...>
Subject: [cobirds] Re: DFO Field Trip to Timnath Reservoir
Gregg, DFO Field Trip Participants, and all interested readers,

I just wanted to remind everyone about unique access issues at Timnath
Reservoir. I've posted about this on COBIRDS in the past, but it bears
repeating.

The Town of Timnath decided a few years ago to restrict access to the
reservoir and the town park to town residents only. A permit is required
for access, and only town residents can get a permit. When the town made
this decision, I contacted officials in my role as President of Fort
Collins Audubon Society and explained how important Timnath Reservoir is to
birders. Town officials decided that they would make an exception and not
enforce the permit requirement for birders. They communicated this to the
volunteers and employees who work in the town park and sometimes ask to see
permits, as well as to Town police.

I want you to know that the sign at the park entrance still says permit
required, and the town *ordinance* still restricts access to town residents
only. All we have is verbal agreement and an email from town officials (who
may or may not still be in office!) saying the requirements will not be
*enforced*. They could reverse this policy at any time, so it is incredibly
important to the birding community that we are respectful, friendly,
polite, and nice to everyone we encounter near the reservoir. Be
ambassadors for birds and birding! If you are asked to show a permit or
show proof of town residence by any police officer, employee, or volunteer
working in the park, DON'T BE OFFENDED. Don't get snippy. Politely explain
that you are birding, and that it's your understanding that the town
exempts birders from the permit requirement. If anyone representing the
town doesn't know about the exemption and tells you to leave, don't argue
with them. Just leave - and again be polite and nice, no matter how
frustrating or annoying it might be. Fort Collins Audubon will follow up
with the town if this happens and try to rectify the situation.

Have a great outing,
John Shenot
President, Fort Collins Audubon Society

Hey COBirders,

The Spizella action continued early this morning, with big numbers of arriving sparrows diving into the willows and brush again, but slowing down by about 830. I didn’t put up five of my
nets that get heavy sparrow traffic, but still managed to catch 55 Chipping Sparrows, and 22 Clay-colored Sparrows (165 now, compared with 38 my previous best season).
Today more warblers appeared again, coming in all morning, with 14 Wilson’s (all juv birds), and singles of Yellow (Ad F, late), and MacGillivray’s (Ad F). 97 birds caught this morning, by 9:30.

Looks like we are in for another clear and hot spell, so I don’t expect these numbers to continue next week.

Have a good weekend,
Steve Brown
Colo Spgs
