And yet the Scrub Jay is now two Jays; one named for a state, the other
named after naturalist Samuel Washington Woodhouse.
They really need to address issues such as the Orange-crowned Warbler. Now
that's a stupid name!
And while I'm on my "mini-rant", if Chickadees are named for their vocals,
how about renaming Killdeer. It doesn't sound like kill deer to me. And
surely we can rename Virginia Rail something like "Kiddick"!

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Re: Changing Common Names of birds; example, Steller’s Jay
Gentle Birders,
Along this line of thinking is the former McCown's Longspur.... now saddled
with an abomination of a name. When I moved to Montana over 20 years ago, I
found colonies of this species nesting on the tops of several buttes near
my home. The extreme shortgrass was like an extensive putting green, of
very high diversity. The occasional Horned Lark or Long-billed Curlew would
appear in these locations but other wise, the aforementioned Longspur
dominated.

The courtship flight is so utterly adorable- calling while fluttering to
the earth, tail spread so wide it is easily spotted at a distance. The huge
white panels with the narrow, dark and inverted T is so diagnostic and
easily used to identify this species.

I propose that the assigned genus remain the same so the
nerd-ornitholigists obsessed with following archaic protocols have their
"win". But along with many other things, our past time continues to a lot
of stupid things which hurt out growth and thwart more widespread adoption.
Not naming birds better is one stupidity which follows this trend.

Bay-winged, Crescent-chested, or the White tailed- Grey, or even Fluttering
Longspur... anything is better than Thick-billed. Sorry nomenclature
committee that is just a boneheaded name.

Very sincerely,

Timothy Barksdale

Report submitted by DAVID HILL ()
Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

He is a really great guy at Stewart’s Pond, who leases the property. I have spoken to him a few times in a friendly conversation. I know others have as well. He allows birders to go into the cattle area, warning mother cows are protective of the calves.

They drove on my horse pasture, opened gates they had no business opening, and smashed a pipe that delivered water from my well to the horses’ water tank.

>>> The other day I was picking around in the grass at roadside trying to figure out what 3 Long-billed Curlews might be eating when a pickup came down a long drive across the way and stopped next to me. The man, Scott, was highly agitated at me and all birders. He initially blamed us for a long litany of offenses including getting him and his PTSD flared up, causing his dogs to bark, littering that occurs every week of the year especially during Cheyenne Frontier Days, setting fires, cutting his fences, hunting on his land, trespassing on the road that may or may not be private but that he considers private and more. Suffice it to say this man, who I think is probably a pretty nice guy under his Marine Corps hat, is armed and not to be messed with. The location is a little spur road between CR5 and I-25 that goes north from Larimer CR92. This road goes about a mile and ends at a closed gate which leads to the City of Fort Collins solid waste treatment plant for use on the Meadow Springs Ranch. Scott lives up on the hill to the east of this road in the only house at the end of a long driveway. After a long chat during which he calmed down considerably, he said it was OK for me to look at the curlews but that he would just like to know who is coming up his road and when. He gave me his phone that could be used for text messaging (970/568-6434). I know a few Larimer folks who go up that road all the way to the gate looking north for longspurs, etc. on a regular basis. The ill-will this might cause is not worth a tick mark on a checklist. Either call Scott in advance or go elsewhere. Be advised.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Courtesy to a landowner
Hi all

I'd like to ask about access to Stewart's Pond. I've heard from and seen
multiple occasions folks and cars beyond the corral area to view Stewart's
Pond. Does anyone have the definitive answer that the landowner is okay
with birders on their property? Each time I go near I'm hoping to see
someone working there to ask and confirm for myself we have permission.

Thanks, Gary Lefko, Nunn

Subject: [cobirds] Caspian Terns
John Stump and I birded San Luis Lake today and were excited to find 4
Caspian Terns sitting on a sandbar amongst many Ring-billed, and Franklin's
Gulls. They are rare to unusual in the San Luis Valley. Cold wind made for
watery eyes through the scope but we did get some pics for eBird.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Courtesy to a landowner
Frankly, I don’t blame him. Years ago, when my house was the only one on my road, both birders and hunters would drive down my long driveway looking for birds or game. It’s perhaps ironic, but the hunters were the ones who would come to the door asking for permission to be on my land. Birders did not. They drove on my horse pasture, opened gates they had no business opening, and smashed a pipe that delivered water from my well to the horses’ water tank. Please be respectful of other people and their property.

Subject: [cobirds] Courtesy to a landowner
All Birders,
The other day I was picking around in the grass at roadside trying to figure out what 3 Long-billed Curlews might be eating when a pickup came down a long drive across the way and stopped next to me. The man, Scott, was highly agitated at me and all birders. He initially blamed us for a long litany of offenses including getting him and his PTSD flared up, causing his dogs to bark, littering that occurs every week of the year especially during Cheyenne Frontier Days, setting fires, cutting his fences, hunting on his land, trespassing on the road that may or may not be private but that he considers private and more. Suffice it to say this man, who I think is probably a pretty nice guy under his Marine Corps hat, is armed and not to be messed with. The location is a little spur road between CR5 and I-25 that goes north from Larimer CR92. This road goes about a mile and ends at a closed gate which leads to the City of Fort Collins solid waste treatment plant for use on the Meadow Springs Ranch. Scott lives up on the hill to the east of this road in the only house at the end of a long driveway. After a long chat during which he calmed down considerably, he said it was OK for me to look at the curlews but that he would just like to know who is coming up his road and when. He gave me his phone that could be used for text messaging (970/568-6434). I know a few Larimer folks who go up that road all the way to the gate looking north for longspurs, etc. on a regular basis. The ill-will this might cause is not worth a tick mark on a checklist. Either call Scott in advance or go elsewhere. Be advised.

Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

For weeks now I've been getting this sparrow I can't identify hanging out with a small flock of white crowned sparrows.I see it every day and still can't figure it out.
Closest match seems to be a Harris's sparrow but even that's not a good match.
Will work on better photos.
Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like some out of state birders saw a Yellow-throated Warbler at
Pueblo Nature Center, Pueblo County this morning, 19 April, in Cottonwood
trees.

Hopefully a singing male will return at Roselawn Cemetery or Mineral Palace
Park soon. I hope to get to Roselawn later this week.

This is 2nd eastern migrant warbler this spring in Colorado, I heard about
Northern Parula yesterday from Higbee Valley Road in Otero County. Warbler
season is on!

Along Lower Latham marsh the cattails and taller grasses are all flattened
to ground because of weight of snow from blizzard few weeks ago. It is
silent and devoid of birds--assume because habitat not showing any signs of
resilience yet? Didn't see or hear any expected birds: Red-wingeds,
Yellow-heads, Marsh Wren, ducks, gulls

Hello Fellow Birders, On this briefly sunny but now ominously dark morning a flock of five Pine Siskins joined the usual suspects at the feeders in my little townhouse yard near Holly and Arapahoe.  Hadn't seen them here in a long, long time. Keep Smilin',Kevin Sent from my Remington Rand Typewriter via my Rotary Dial Wall Phone

Even on WhatBird.com forum swans are still identified as "Tundra/Trumpeter

Report submitted by DAVID HILL ()
Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Changing Common Names of birds; example, Steller’s Jay
I suspect it was due to the fact that the type specimens that Townsend
described in 1837 were from Fremont County, Wyoming. This is a high plains
county at the base of the Wind River and Absarokas Mountain Ranges. You
can still find "mountain" mountain plover's at 10000 feet in South Park and
slightly lower in the San Luis Valley.

Colorado Field Ornithologists invites you to a Zoom meeting.
When: Apr 25, 2021 07:00 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada)

Register in advance for this meeting:
https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJckfuqhpz8tGNeyzoXs7q0rC_kLE6_dG4ZS


Nathan Pieplow author of Peterson Field Guide to Bird Sounds (Western and
Eastern)

will discuss what every birder should know about recording and using bird
sounds in the field.

Learn how to use your phone to record bird sounds; how to edit and upload
recordings; where to find bird sounds on the web; and the ethics of
playback.

This is a seminar on how to use the technologies you already own to
maximize your enjoyment of birds and contribute to the documentation of
their occurrence and behavior.

Subject: [cobirds] Mountain Birding Apr. 15-16


Hi all,

My brother and I spent the last few days birding the mountains and found a
few interesting species. Below is a summary (albeit rather lengthy) of the
highlights.

Lake County

Crystal Lake: Full of waterfowl including good numbers of Lesser Scaup and
a Western Grebe that tripped the filter. In the surrounding sagebrush flats
we also found an early Sage Thrasher and several Vesper Sparrow.

Twin Lakes: Mostly iced over. The sliver of open water had a large flock of
Western Grebe (114). Also present was a rare (for Lake Co.) Canvasback.

Chaffee County

Clear Creek Reservoir: Frozen except for the far western side where
waterfowl were congregating, including a stunning male Wood Duck. The major
highlights were a male Mallard x Mexican Duck and a pair of Red-breasted
Merganser.

Field along CR 160: 11 continuing Long-billed Curlew.

Sands Lake SWA: A stroll around the pond yielded an assortment of ducks, a
Savannah Sparrow (perhaps a tad early for the mountains), and a flock of
Tree and VG Swallows.

Gunnison County

McCabe Lane Wetlands: The highlight was an adult Black-crowned Night Heron
that flushed from the edge of one of the ponds. Also of note was a Merlin
near the parking lot.

Blue Mesa Reservoir: We birded the far eastern corner of the reservoir
which required a ½ mile slog across the exposed lakebed to get to the
water’s edge. There were good numbers of Franklin’s, Ring-billed, and
California Gulls, a smattering of ducks including another Mallard x Mexican
Duck, and eight Bald Eagles. Also noteworthy was a flock of eight Western
Sandpipers and six Least Sandpipers.

Saguache County

Saguache (town): The eastern corner of the town had lots of activity
including an Evening Grosbeak, several Lincoln’s Sparrow, and a rare Blue
Jay. The most unusual bird was the San Luis Valley’s first eBird record of
an Eastern Phoebe at the intersection of Christy Ave and 11th St.

Rio Grande County

Home Lake SWA: As John Rawinski mentioned in an earlier post, Home Lake is
being dredged which is resulting in fantastic but ephemeral shorebird
habitat. Of note was a Western Sandpiper, two Long-billed Dowitcher, 47
American Avocet, 13 Greater Yellowlegs, and 24 Lesser Yellowlegs.

Monte Vista NWR: A large Tree Swallow flock had an early Northern
Rough-winged Swallow and Bank Swallow. Also of interest was a flock of
lingering Cackling Geese.

Alamosa County

Wetlands along Riverwood Dr: We noticed this place on Google Maps and
thought it’d be worth a check. It did not disappoint! A Black-necked Stilt
and several Long-billed Dowitchers were on the W side of the road while a
Great-tailed Grackle serenaded us from nearby.

San Luis Lakes SWA: The expansive mudflats held a Black-necked Stilt, three
Baird’s Sandpiper, three Western Sandpipers, a Least Sandpiper, and many
avocets. Also of note were two Bonaparte’s Gulls.

Park County

Antero Reservoir: Mostly frozen except for the far SE corner. In this
pocket of open water were many ducks, most noteworthy of which was a male
Mexican Duck. Also in the area were 13 American Avocets, two Greater
Yellowlegs, and a pair of Wood Ducks. The grasslands nearby had an early
(for Park Co.) Lincoln’s Sparrow.

Overall it was a fantastic trip! Nice to see some migrants beginning to
trickle through the mountains. All of the aforementioned species have/will
be entered into eBird with an accompanying description.

Good Birding,

Jack Bushong,

Louisville

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Swan ID help/Weld
I saw them this afternoon. I entered them into eBird as Tundra Swans. They
are not adults. It was a judgement call, mostly based on their head,
including bill. We'll see if the reviewer confirms it or not. They just
didn't seem quite big enough for Trumpeters.

Subject: [cobirds] Snowy egrets, Arapahoe county
I have three snowy egrets on my pond this afternoon, the first of the season for me. So beautiful to see them! This is the first day for me to have wood ducks on the pond as well. I have had wood ducks nesting every summer for the past 10 years but I don’t know if they’re going to find a good place this year because so many of the older trees have been cut down.

I have had a pair of hooded mergansers on the pond now for several weeks and, like in previous years, always hope they find a place to nest here on the ponds.(They never do. 😢) I also have common mergansers and cormorants as well.

So grateful for the arrival of spring!

Total observation time: 3.75 hours

Official Counter: Carol Cwiklinski

Observers: Steve Small

Visitors:
We had no visitors to observation. The trail wasn’t too bad early, but I
expect it will be a muddy mess tomorrow.


Weather:
We hiked up the ridge late so the storm had a chance to clear. We arrived
to snow flurries and overcast skies. Eventually the sky cleared to 75%
cloud cover and it was a beautiful day. It seemed perfect for migration,
except there wasn’t much.

Raptor Observations:
A few hawks migrated today, but there did not seem to be many in the
pipeline. We watched a local Peregrine falcon throughout the day, and a
beautiful adult golden eagle.

Non-raptor Observations:
We saw flocks of robins moving through, counting almost 100. They were
moving low along the ridge eating juniper berries. Otherwise there were few
other birds seen.

Predictions:
Gotta be better than today.
========================================================================
Report submitted by DAVID HILL ()
Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Swan ID help/Weld
Based on what I am looking at in Sibley’s, my guess is that they are first summer tundra swans. Their backs are pretty white compared to their heads and necks, and they seem on the smaller side when compared to the ducks. But then again, this is just a guess!

Thank you all for your suggestions and links. I joined the ‘Animal Help Now’ website and note that they have a small animal hospital on W. Eisenhower in Loveland, close to me. I read the link given by Bernd and learned a lot! I had imagined a covey of juncos in the cedar bush out back all huddled together facing outwards with the Vesper sparrow toasty in the middle. And, perhaps I’m not far wrong. But from the article it seems more likely that the juncos would be facing in with their tails pointing out! Thank you all again.

I guess these little birds, like the juncos, are survivors and best not to disturb them unless they are in obvious distress or comatose. I wonder, how do the juncos and other birds like the Mountain chickadees and Pygmy nuthatches make it through a spell of cold weather?

You could bring him in, perhaps start him in a box with something warm to bring his temp up. If he perks up he could go in the cage. I think it’s supposed to be cold tomorrow night too. But if he perks up, acts normally and seems agitated in the cage, I would let him out when it warms up tomorrow.

Those are my suggestions. Good luck!

Hello CObirders,
Perhaps someone can give me some quick advice. At this moment (7 pm) I have a Vesper sparrow sitting in a little seed bowl under a makeshift cover to protect it from the snow. There’s seed in the bowl but it looks pretty miserable. It survived last night – sat in the same spot covered in snow and I was preparing a rescue attempt when some juncos showed up and it flew off. Well, here it is again and its 24 F with light snow. I figure I’ll keep an eye on it and if it nods off I’ll try and bring it in the house and put it in our spare budgie cage.

Subject: RE: [cobirds] Vesper Sparrow, Larimer Cty.
Thank you, Deborah, for your suggestion and I’ll keep it in mind. Fortunately, this morning the Vesper sparrow is back with the juncos. Still 25 F here with light snow but I can see a patch of blue sky here and there. Warmer weather has to be coming soon! I guess these little birds, like the juncos, are survivors and best not to disturb them unless they are in obvious distress or comatose. I wonder, how do the juncos and other birds like the Mountain chickadees and Pygmy nuthatches make it through a spell of cold weather? Well, all’s well that ends well, as they say, and I’ll just keep an eye on the birds, which is what I do anyway. Thanks again – Dave/nr. Storm Mountain. Larimer Cty.

You could bring him in, perhaps start him in a box with something warm to bring his temp up. If he perks up he could go in the cage. I think it’s supposed to be cold tomorrow night too. But if he perks up, acts normally and seems agitated in the cage, I would let him out when it warms up tomorrow.

Those are my suggestions. Good luck!

Hello CObirders,
Perhaps someone can give me some quick advice. At this moment (7 pm) I have a Vesper sparrow sitting in a little seed bowl under a makeshift cover to protect it from the snow. There’s seed in the bowl but it looks pretty miserable. It survived last night – sat in the same spot covered in snow and I was preparing a rescue attempt when some juncos showed up and it flew off. Well, here it is again and its 24 F with light snow. I figure I’ll keep an eye on it and if it nods off I’ll try and bring it in the house and put it in our spare budgie cage. I dunno, anyone have any advice? – Dave Hyde/nr. Storm Mtn.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] NO continuing Long-billed Curlews - SE of Longmont
I was there about 20 minutes ago and counted 11 Long-billed Curlews. A much
smaller group, best observed from Pipit Rd, though not really a spot to
'pull over' with the mud. They were tough to see without glass and you
certainly need to know where to be looking (South of the road, just West of
the large sod sprinkler)

Thanks,
Jeff

Certainly not rare today - a careful tally has just yielded 133 at North Teller Lake this morning. No sign of the Solitary Sandpiper or semipalmated plover that have been seen here recently, although they could’ve been hiding among all the snipe for all I know.

Quite a spectacle!

I was also at Clear Spring Ranch today and saw at least 30 Mountain
Bluebirds. Then I went over to McCrae’s Reservoir just 10 minutes
from there and saw at least 25 Western Bluebirds.

I also saw a Cattle Egret, 7 Long-billed Curlews and 7 White-faced Ibis,
plus about 55 other species today. Great day 😍

Subject: Re: [cobirds] {Bluebird-Babble} Bluebird dearth
Okay, just to keep us humble, El Paso county just got inundated with
mountain bluebirds in this last snow storm. At Clear Spring ranch, I had
over forty, and I ran into someone who saw a like number next to Squirrel
Creek Reservoir. STUNNING.
Happy Birding!

Subject: [cobirds] Vesper Sparrow, Larimer Cty.
Hello CObirders,
Perhaps someone can give me some quick advice. At this moment (7 pm) I have a Vesper sparrow sitting in a little seed bowl under a makeshift cover to protect it from the snow. There’s seed in the bowl but it looks pretty miserable. It survived last night – sat in the same spot covered in snow and I was preparing a rescue attempt when some juncos showed up and it flew off. Well, here it is again and its 24 F with light snow. I figure I’ll keep an eye on it and if it nods off I’ll try and bring it in the house and put it in our spare budgie cage. I dunno, anyone have any advice? – Dave Hyde/nr. Storm Mtn.

Subject: [cobirds] Bluebirds and phoebes - Douglas
Urling & I just came back from a rewarding trip to the Franktown post office -- and Walker & McClain gravel ponds.
In the Walker Pit area, we counted 26 Western Bluebirds;  8 Mountain Bluebirds perched and fed on an island in the pond. Most amazing: a dozen Say's Phoebes feeding over the water like swallows. We watched for 25 minutes as they flew back and forth -- and we didn't see them stop on shore to rest.

The pond itself had a modest assortment of ducks, but also one Franklin's Gull.
Along Willow Lake Drive we counted 2 Western and 2 Mountain bluebirds, 2 phoebes sallying over the pond like swallows, and 37 robins.
Maybe the bluebirds will snap back from their scarcity in March and early April. We feel encouraged to see today's groups.

Subject: [cobirds] Pueblo update 4/16
One of the two Neotropic Cormorants were at the Pueblo West Gravel Pit
today, neither were around yesterday. After Tuesday's amazing shorebird
day, it has been slower for shorebirds since then. Though, always a few.

Please remember the Pueblo West Gravel Pit is private, don't go to the
shore, do not trespass on the rocks around the Pit. The birds rest on the
rocks on the north side of the Pit, and if photographers or birders go
walking out there, then you scare the birds away from the people who are
viewing from the allowed places with their scopes. It is best to scope
from the west and south sides of the Pit, without going to the down to the
shore at all. There is no fishing or boating activity allowed on this
pond, so the birds really like to be there.

Glad to hear, David --
And BTW, worth noting is that the Wingate South Park BLPH last July had
nested with what I believe was (Scott Somershoe can confirm, as it was he
who advised me via eBird review) a Black x Eastern hybrid, with two
resulting offspring. They apparently nested somewhere across the street
just east of the pond outlet.

Subject: [cobirds] Food of curlews
Preston had photos of the Pipit Road curlews se of Longmont eating a type of caterpillar. I shared these with two of my entomology colleagues at CSU. We agree the curlews are getting “cutworms”. This term applies to a number of moths in the family Noctuidae. By far the most likely species is Euxoa auxiliaris, the infamous “miller moth”. A wonderful recent program on this insect by Dr. Whitney Cranshaw is available as a YouTube from the Fort Collins Audubon Society website. I covered this subject in the 1st “The Hungry Bird” back in April 2010, archived on the CFO website by going to the “Colorado Birds” section.

Report submitted by DAVID HILL ()
Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Subject: [cobirds] Passerine migration
All,

As I was shoveling several inches of heavy wet snow in below freezing
temperature this morning, I thought to myself 'pretty wise decision by
those passerines not to be here this morning'. We hear a lot about, and
there are some observations to back it up, that spring and bird migrations
are getting earlier, especially in Europe. My observation is that I have
NOT seen that in eastern CO. There is huge variation in the temperatures
here on daily, monthly and annual timescales, especially in winter. As
always in climate studies, having very large natural variability makes
seeing a trend very difficult. March and the first half of April have been
considerably colder than average, and the Denver forecast has high
temperatures below the daily average of 61F for the next week. Those
warblers I'm desperate to see might not be here for a little while yet.
However, this email has been delayed by seeing several good birds
(non-passerines) around Lagerman Reservoir north of Boulder this morning.

Earlier this morning, I found food quite easily at the King Soopers in
downtown Boulder, and I hope the birds did too. However, the foraging time
was twice the normal length because of unfamiliarity with that store.
Surprisingly for a male, I did ask for directions twice.

I could not find any. Searched Pipit Road, which turns into Pike, from 119

Hopefully someone else will re-find them.
A very nice selection of raptors, however!

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Changing Common Names of birds; example, Steller’s Jay
Robin Wall Kimmerer (Braiding Sweetgrass) has argued insightfully for a
“grammar of animacy” that challenges Western tenets of naming. Learning
the Potawatomi language that her grandfather was forbidden to speak, she
finds out that the Hudson River was originally called “the river that runs
both ways” (because of the tidal action). She cites Krista Tippett: “The
words we use shape how we understand ourselves, how we interpret the world,
how we treat others. Words make worlds” (Becoming Wise). Indigenous
languages use verbs and pronouns to name non-human animals, including
birds, to describe and respect their relationships to us and the wider
ecosystem, often incorporated in stories (e.g., Steller’s jays hopping up
trees to see danger better).

From: DAVID A LEATHERMAN <daleatherman...>
Subject: Re: [cobirds] Passerine migration ?
You know what I'm going to say. I suspect much of this is about food. Animals depend on plants. Plants suffered late freezes in spring 2020 (no fruit or seed set for most woody plants), an early hard freeze last September immediately on the heels of days with high temps near 100, and then threw their spring development into reverse back in mid-Feb when it hit -20 to in excess of -30 in some places. Insects no doubt suffered directly or are waiting for the plants just like we're waiting for the warblers. Most of the neotrops we long for eat insects. Add to that the fact the eastern plains is into the second decade of a drought. Can you imagine a bird that is coming north looking at what western MX and TX and NM look like and deciding to just fly north for hundreds and hundreds of miles thru more of the same? The definition of insanity describes that, and most birds aren't insane. Humans, maybe, but not birds. Maybe more birds are diverting up the west side of the Divide, or maybe more are going right up the spine. I suspect the answer is a combination of waiting, doing the two things I just mentioned and just plain fewer individual birds. If there was major mortality during fall migration, the number of survivors certainly didn't increase during months of wintering and the inherent perils of early spring migration. Just my guesses. Our job is to observe, enjoy and document what happens next.

FWIW, I keep a little book recording dates of things blooming in my yard, weather, bird sightings, etc., and in general the dates for things this thing are about 10-14 days behind some other years - spring is just later in my yard in this year than some other years. Denver just recorded its second-snowiest March on record this year and in my records, there have been fewer really spring-like days by quite a bit so far this year than some in the recent past.

I don't know if any of that is the reason, but just an observation.

Hi David et al,

Two questions I have- the early date and the clean white scapular edgings. Both mitigate against SBDO I think?

Subject: [cobirds] Short-billed Dowitcher, El Paso County

Hi all,

As Ted Floyd just touched here earlier this evening, the snow and dense low clouds today meant many northbound migrants were grounded in places they otherwise wouldn't stop or spend much time in. My forecasts indicate this could go on through tomorrow morning.

Anyway, this afternoon myself and a few other local birders photographed an apparent hendersoni (prairie-breeding) Short-billed Dowitcher at Squirrel Creek Reservoir, the first one I have seen in El Paso County. It took some close inspection and consultation with a couple individuals more experienced in visual dowitcher ID than myself including Alvaro Jaramillo, before I felt fully confident about the ID, hence the late posting. I believe the continued snow through tonight and through the morning may keep it in place through the night, however. If you want to learn how we came to the ID, read the next paragraph.

If you disregard the obvious plumage differences which are mainly the result of varying stages of molt, in the first photo below the Short-billed Dowitcher (center) is demonstrably a tad smaller, and clearly flatter-backed as a result of its folded tertial and primary feathers being held straighter than the two surrounding Long-billed Dowitchers. It is also not as front heavy, and the bill on this particular individual was shorter with a slight curve particularly notable when compared directly. As I understand it, the more spotted look to the undertail coverts as a result of thicker, ovate bands is also a good indicator for SBDO, and once this individual advances more fully into its breeding plumage it should show more spots centered at the shafts throughout the rest of the flanks. Long-billed have narrower bands more appropriately designated as barring. These nice photos were taken by Kevin Ash; note they appear very faded in color due to the lighting in the field.

Beyond shorebirds, passerine migration seems to be quite late this year, with only a slow trickle of migrant Yellow-rumped Warblers showing up in the state almost two weeks later than usual. I'd be intrigued to find out what's causing this, and if it has anything to do with the very cold and abnormally south-reaching vortex this last February. Or perhaps Bryan Guarente can enlighten us on other weather conditions happening in the Gulf that might be the cause.



Happy birding and ornithologizing,

Subject: RE: [cobirds] Re: Changing Common Names of birds; example, Steller’s Jay
Bob, all,

With apols for heading somewhat off-topic. Moderators please forgive me



Concerning Steller’s Jay..



As you may well be aware there is a wonderful book concerning Bering’s second voyage “Where the Sea Breaks its Back” by Corey Ford, pub 1966. Most of this book’s gripping 200 or so pages are actually about Steller and his natural history discoveries, some 280 years ago, including those famously named after him such as the Jay, sea-cow and Sea-Eagle. I have read this tome several times and highly recommend it if you have any interest in either exploration, natural history, or both. The two arctic expeditions of Vitus Bering (a Dane) on behalf of the Russian monarchy during the reign of Peter the Great each started with a 6,000-mile cross-country trek from St. Petersburg to Kamchatka that makes the Lewis & Clark expedition look like a cake walk. And that was just to get to the beginning of the sea voyages. Also in the book I learned that Alaska is probably an abbreviation of Unalaska, derived from the Aleut word agunalaksh, which means “the shores where the sea breaks its back.” Of course everyone knew that from school right? And as for the author’s own first sighting of the Aleutians, I can totally relate..

Out of many of Steller’s new discoveries was a new eagle, now known as Steller’s Sea Eagle.



Doesn’t the eponymic name Steller’s Jay evoke more romance, interest, and wonder than if it was just called, for convenience, say “Mountain” Jay?

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Re: Changing Common Names of birds; example, Steller’s Jay
Why should Steller get a jay named after him when he spent only a few hours
with the species and learned virtually nothing about it? He just happened
to be the first European person to shoot one.

"The Makahs tell a story about how the bird we know as the Steller's Jay -
the bird the Makahs call *Kwish-kwishee* - got its crest. The mink,
Kwahtie, tried to shoot his mother, the jay, with an arrow but missed. Her
crest is ruffled to this day."

Doesn't the name "Kwish-kwishee" ring with more romance than "Steller's
Jay"?

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Passerine migration ?
FWIW, I keep a little book recording dates of things blooming in my yard,
weather, bird sightings, etc., and in general the dates for things this
thing are about 10-14 days behind some other years - spring is just later
in my yard in this year than some other years. Denver just recorded its
second-snowiest March on record this year and in my records, there have
been fewer really spring-like days by quite a bit so far this year than
some in the recent past.

I don't know if any of that is the reason, but just an observation.

More Yellow-rumped Warblers were around yesterday, it snowed last night
down here in Pueblo, so perhaps more Warblers soon. I have only seen one
Ruby-crowned Kinglet this spring. Shorebirds have been good, I already at
20 species of shorebirds this spring in Colorado, and still waiting for
Warbler species #2.

The Western Slope birders, have seen more Warbler species with, Lucy's,
Virginia's, Black-throated Gray, and Grace's at least in the last few
days. Hopefully the East Slope gets into the Warbler action soon.

Subject: [cobirds] Short-billed Dowitcher, El Paso County
Hi all,

As Ted Floyd just touched on here earlier this evening, the snow and dense
low clouds today meant many northbound migrants were grounded in places
they otherwise wouldn't stop or spend much time in. My forecasts indicate
this could go on through tomorrow morning.

Anyway, this afternoon myself and a few other local birders photographed an
apparent hendersoni (prairie-breeding) Short-billed Dowitcher at Squirrel
Creek Reservoir, the first one I have seen in El Paso County. It took some
close inspection and consultation with a couple individuals more
experienced in visual dowitcher ID than myself including Alvaro Jaramillo,
before I felt fully confident about the ID, hence the late posting. I
believe the continued snow through tonight and through the morning may keep
it in place through the night, however. If you want to learn how we came to
the ID, read the next paragraph.

If you disregard the obvious plumage differences which are mainly the
result of varying stages of molt, in the first photo below the Short-billed
Dowitcher (center) is demonstrably a tad smaller, and clearly
flatter-backed as a result of its folded tertial and primary feathers being
held straighter than the two surrounding Long-billed Dowitchers. It is also
not as front heavy, and the bill on this particular individual was shorter
with a slight curve particularly notable when compared directly. As I
understand it, the more spotted look to the undertail coverts as a result
of thicker, ovate bands is also a good indicator for SBDO, and once this
individual advances more fully into its breeding plumage it should show
more spots centered at the shafts throughout the rest of the flanks.
Long-billed have narrower bands more appropriately designated as barring.
These nice photos were taken by Kevin Ash; note they appear very faded in
color due to the lighting in the field.

https://ebird.org/checklist/S85619513



Beyond shorebirds, passerine migration seems to be quite late this year,
with only a slow trickle of migrant Yellow-rumped Warblers showing up in
the state almost two weeks later than usual. I'd be intrigued to find out
what's causing this, and if it has anything to do with the very cold and
abnormally south-reaching vortex this last February. Or perhaps Bryan
Guarente can enlighten us on other weather conditions happening in the Gulf
that might be the cause.

It had been snowing for about half an hour with a breeze and I found a number of land birds sheltering and foraging along the dam that forms the reservoir’s south side. The low water level has left a broad strip of dirt exposed, was was still mostly open during my visit. A number of birds were foraging on the open dirt and in the nearby grasses and shrubs where there was more snow. Others were sheltering in the few trees there.

Migrants included 4 Say’s Phoebes, 1 Ruby-crowned Kinglet, 1 Rock Wren, 1 Sage Thrasher, 3 Western Bluebirds, 15 Mountain Bluebirds, 1 Hermit Thrush, 170 American Robins (feeding with intensity on a nearby grassy slope), 2 Am Pipits, 1 Cassins Finch, 4 Dark-eyed Juncos, 3 White-crowned Sparrows, 7 Vesper Sparrows, 1 Savannah Sparrow, 6 Lincoln’s Sparrows, and 4 Yellow-rumped Warblers. Almost none of these species were evident on my other brief visits this week, when hardly any land birds were noted.

I returned just after 5 pm. About 5 inches had already accumulated, covering everything. Only a few birds were in evidence now: Vespers, robins and bluebirds only.

Back home it was great to see a Great Horned Owl fly through the snowing dusk, landing alert atop a spruce out front. At about 30 min after sunset I heard the calls of Western Bluebirds falling through the snow as they flew over my home.

Subject: [cobirds] Shorebirds in the snow, Greenlee & environs, Thurs. evening, Apr. 15
Hey, all.

I didn't need me no stinkin' Bryan Guarente to tell me to pop out on my
local patch during the heavy snow these past few hours. ;-)

I could barely see my way out there, but there were shorebirds aplenty. At
Greenlee Wildlife Preserve, there were 5 *long-billed dowitchers,* 7 *American
avocets,* 1 *Wilson snipe,* 2 *lesser yellowlegs,* 4 *greater yellowlegs,*
and 2 *killdeer.*

Over at nearby Waneka Lake: 2 *least sandpipers,* 5 lesser yellowlegs, 8
greater yellowlegs, and 2 killdeer.

And at nearby Hecla Pond: 1 *solitary sandpiper,* 10 American avocets, 5
lesser yellowlegs, 8 greater yellowlegs, and 3 killdeer.

My guess is that there's an awful lot of stuff put down right now at
reservoirs up against the foothills--and that the birds will be there
tomorrow (Fri.) morning. If you're not headed down to Pepsi Center on a
vaccine run in the morning, consider heading out to Valmont Rez or some
such.

Report submitted by DAVID HILL ()
Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Subject: [cobirds] Re: Changing Common Names of birds; example, Steller’s Jay

Peter the Great,Tsar of all of Russia, invited Georg W. Steller, a German scientist to come to Russia and help explore and catalogue it’s natural history. In 1741 Steller joined the Vitus Bering Expedition in sailing east to discover what was out there. After several weeks they bumped into new land now known as Alaska. Steller discovered a jay, now known as Steller’s Jay. The expedition sailed west exploring the Aleutians. Out of many of Steller’s new discoveries was a new eagle, now known as Steller’s Sea Eagle.

Doesn’t the eponymic name Steller’s Jay evoke more romance, interest, and wonder than if it was just called, for convenience, say “Mountain” Jay?

Subject: [cobirds] Dunlin at San Luis Lake
Got out yesterday and could NOT beat the winds, which pummeled me from the
beginning with 20-40 mph blasts. Uggh I hate winds! Could not leave the
scope alone as the Zephyrs would surely have blown it over. Just the same,
birding was good with many shorebirds including 2 Dunlin. This bird is
considered rare to unusual in the San Luis Valley. It was there with Least,
Baird's, Semipalmated and Western Sandpipers. A lone Black-necked Stilt was
also good to see.

On another note, Home Lake in Monte Vista, will be undergoing some dredging
in the coming year and roads will be closed around it. The lake is being
drained today. The hope is to make the lake deeper so that we can avoid
winterkill on the fish. You can still bird the trees on the west side of
the lake, but waterbirds won't be there.

Yuck for the next few days if weather predictions ring true.
========================================================================
Report submitted by DAVID HILL ()
Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Subject: [cobirds] Re: News from Cherry Creek SP
I only know of Robert Rozinski from the wonderful book published by him and
Wendy Shattil in 1990: "Close to Home." I was given the book by my mentor
John B. Hayes who contributed with photos and "quips." The photos are not
today's high resolution, crystal clear images, but they tell a story of how
birds and other taxa have adapted to our urban environment. In addition, it
is a reflection of the early days of birding and nature watching in the
Denver area. There are copies available!

Subject: [cobirds] Very large flock of Curlew, Boulder
All,

This large flock is along Pipit Road between 119th St and County Line Road,
SW of Longmont. John Rutenbeck (finder), John Vanderpoel and I counted 77
around 10:30, and now Ben Sampson and others are reporting upto 140. This
is by far the largest flock of L-B Curlew I have seen in Boulder County in
over 44 years birding here.

Cobirders,
Another new bird for this Spring that I saw this morning was a Spotted
Sandpiper on Lake 4 with a Killdeer, a Greater Yellowlegs, and several
snipe.

Amazingly, the Spotted Sandpiper is not on the eBird list for this area.
This may be because April 14 is an early date?

The program is free and open to the public. Guarente will focus on those

Subject: Re: [cobirds] {Bluebird-Babble} Bluebird dearth
Some more anecdotal contributions regarding Mountain Bluebird numbers...

At Ken Caryl Valley in Jefferson Co I have so far had just two encounters
with Mountain Bluebird this season, where it occurs as a regular migrant
and there are several breeding pairs. Compared to the past 3 years, this is
only 15-25% of the frequency detection for the same time period. I've
checked some of the spots that often have nesting pairs, but none were
present on those checks.

I visited South Park in Park County on Apr 13, driving and birding for
about 7 hours through prime Mountain Bluebird habitat. I tallied 19
Mountain Bluebirds through the day, mostly as singles, well distributed but
considerably less in number than expected based on past visits similarly
timed in April. Compared to my own observations on other visits in the 2nd
week of April, the numbers of Mountains were about 25-30% of what I tallied
in prior years.

Very very cold due to north wind. First time I was the only car parked here.

Subject: [cobirds] Friday April 16: AOS Community Congress on English Bird Names
Hi all -
The American Ornithology Society is holding a Community Congress
(panel/discussion with audience submitted questions) on English bird names
this Friday, April 16, 2-4 EDT (12-2 local). This should be a good venue to
both hear about various perspectives on the English names of birds and
possible next steps for changes in the AOS checklist (which most of us use,
even if we don't know it) and the continued use of eponymic names (e.g.,
named after a person as in Steller's Jay).

"The practice of naming bird species after people has long been debated in
ornithology, with current discussions about eponyms sitting at the
intersection of taxonomic stability and social justice concerns. In summer
2020, the Bird Names for Birds campaign publicized a call to remove and
replace all North American eponyms.
Changing the English common names of species has far-reaching implications
for the ornithological and birding communities and all users of bird names.
Thus, defining next steps to address this issue requires an initial
awareness of the complexities of name changes and an inclusive approach to
understanding diverse perspectives." -- Excerpt from AOS announcement

Subject: [cobirds] Pueblo West Gravel Pit (Pueblo Co.) 4/13
Hi all,

There were 13 species of shorebirds found at the Pueblo West Gravel Pit
pond, east of Osprey Picnic area, on the North side of Rock Canyon, at Lake
Pueblo State Park (Pueblo County) on Tuesday, April 13th. In morning after
9:30am, three of us (Van Truan, Chris Knight, and I) saw ten species of
shorebirds, a Pectoral Sandpiper (which is much rarer in spring than fall,
was the big surprise), a Semipalmated Plover, two Black-necked Stilts
(present since Saturday), a flyover Long-billed Curlew, Baird's and Least
Sandpipers, many Lesser Yellowlegs, a couple of Greater Yellowlegs, four
Wilson's Snipe, and Killdeer. In the afternoon, more birders came and saw
Marbled Godwit, two Semipalmated Sandpipers, and American Avocets to make
it to 13 species of shorebirds for the day. Other highlights in the
morning: two juvenile Neotropic Cormorants (continues), a first year
Iceland (Thayer's) Gull, 21 White-faced Ibis, four Bonaparte's Gulls, many
Franklin's Gulls, a Chipping Sparrow, all six normal swallows, some
lingering ducks (Common Goldeneye, Hooded Merganser, Buffleheads). A
total of 65 species of birds during the hour and 45 minutes (in the
morning). I am sure over 70 species of birds were seen at the Gravel Pit
yesterday. I am expecting a good variety again today and probably more
birders looking too. The cooler spring weather seems to drop in
waterbirds, more than the hot days. I am still waiting for any Warbler
around Pueblo that isn't a Yellow-rumped, should be any day now.

Good birding,

Brandon Percival
Pueblo West, CO

Subject: [cobirds] Re: News from Cherry Creek SP
Thanks Bob for the reminder for me to head over to Cherry Creek and enjoy
that lovely bench and to reminisce about the rewarding times I spent with
Bob, learning the craft of wildlife photography. He was a masterful
teacher, using both explanation and demonstration to get across important
concepts. I feel indebted to him for the encouragement he offered to
explore the outdoor world with a camera. I've included a photo of the
wonderful memorial service for Bob that took place in Cherry Creek on June
4, 2016. Clearly he had lots of friends.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] {Bluebird-Babble} Bluebird dearth
I am involved with Bluebirds routes on many Douglas County open spaces. We’ve been out preparing the routes for the upcoming breeding season. It does not feel like we are seeing as many Bluebirds as past years.

I went out to ebird and pulled bar chart data for this year and the past two for comparison. The scope of this data pull is all of Colorado for the years noted. It looks like there are seeing fewer Bluebird species reported to ebird in Colorado in 2021.

2021 to date


2020


2019


I went out to ebird again and pulled bar chart data for Douglas County alone for these years as above. The scope of this data pull is Douglas County, Colorado for the years noted. As with the state-wide data, it looks like we are seeing fewer Bluebird species reported to ebird in Douglas County, Colorado in 2021.

2021 to date


2020


2019


This relative frequency data helps us understand that there is a gross difference year-over-year. I can pull the absolute numbers and effort data from ebird once the data for March is available to download. Certainly something that we need to watch over the next 6-8 weeks of the normal breeding period.

In fact, despite visiting 14 different sites between the first week of March and yesterday (always on calm sunny days), I heard/saw bluebirds only twice. That is definitely very low compared to previous years. But I can also report more specifically that we found only 3 complete nests and 5 incomplete nests in our 190 nest boxes last week during the first week of monitoring, compared to 5 complete nests and almost a dozen incomplete nests during the first week of monitoring in 2020. We too have a very detailed monitoring program with extensive data keeping since 2007, so we will have a good opportunity for data comparison at the end of the season.

Thanks Robert and John for your thoughtful memories of Bob. He treasured
his many friends and their shared love of nature. I truly appreciate the
comments, particularly since this week marks five years since Bob passed
away. Hard to believe it's been that long, while also seeming like
yesterday.

Bob's Cherry Creek bench overlooks a favorite photo spot he visited every
morning. One day he was on his belly in the mud photographing a huge
snapping turtle and a week later capturing flight shots of teal landing on
the pond. As far as the bench, I imagine him saying, "this is nice, but
it's too close to the road."

All my best,

Total observation time: 6.5 hours

Official Counter: Carol Cwiklinski

Observers: Eddie Israel

Visitors:
I had no visitors but several dog walkers and cyclists used the trail. The
area received little moisture so the trail was dry.


Weather:
The day started out with snow flurries and cold wind from the NE. There
were a couple sun breaks early, and it became more sunny as the day
progressed.

Raptor Observations:
Raptors trickled through today, low and close to the ridge. The winds
continued through the day and cloud cover was excellent. I was unable to
locate any high flying birds, although I suspect they were up there
somewhere.

Non-raptor Observations:
A coyote crossed over the ridge in front of me, under the power line. One
small flock of shorebirds crossed over the ridge south of observation, but
they were too far to identify.

Report submitted by DAVID HILL ()
Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Observation start time: 09:00:00
Observation end time: 15:00:00
Total observation time: 6 hours

Official Counter: Karen Fernandez

Observers: Janet Peters, Walt Combs

Visitors:
Two dog-walkers and one couple (who spotted a raptor) visited the platform.



Weather:
Cold, cloudy and moderately windy. The sun peeked out a few times for
all-too-short periods.

Raptor Observations:
All migrating (and most local) raptors came up the east side of the ridge,
often at eye level or below. The eight Prairie Falcons zoomed by within a
45 minute period.

Non-raptor Observations:
A local Bald Eagle flew up the ridge, and then over to the north end of
Green Mountain. Also observed were local Red Tailed Hawks, a local
Cooper’s Hawk, Black-billed Magpie, local Turkey Vultures, a local
American Kestrel, and three Black Capped Chickadees, one American Crow and,
of course, the usual assortment of Common Ravens. A large herd of elk
grazed to the north of Cabrini.

Predictions:
Rain is predicted starting at noon. Hopefully a few intrepid migrators
will wing it north before the storm.

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Subject: [cobirds] Windsor Birds and Mink!/Weld

Hi all

Yesterday I had two Bonaparte's Gull in the gravel pit on south at
Weld/Larimer County line along Hwy 392 across from the gardening/brewery
store on north. Also, at gravel pit on south at 17th and Hwy 392 (about a
half-mile east of above) had 37 Red-breasted Mergansers in their fine glory!

I had a Mink at Drake Lake scurry out the cattails right in front of me,
crossing the road, taking a swim on east pond and back up on shore again.
Pretty neat.

Yellow-headed Blackbird now present at most water stops I did.

There were a ton of gulls on NE shore of Windsor Reservoir across from the
new overlook in the residential area on east side of reservoir.

I'll have photos posted tomorrow sometime.

Thanks, Gary Lefko, Nunn

Subject: [cobirds] Re: News from Cherry Creek SP
Nice to remember our friend Bob. I just wrote a piece on the early days of
the Crane Festival here in Monte Vista. That means I dusted off the
recollections from over 30 years ago. Back then, Bob and Wendy were the
premier photographers capturing the essence of the cranes and other San
Luis Valley wildlife in those early days. This was before social networking
and I believe Bob (and Wendy) brought the uniqueness and fantastic nature
of the Valley to many on the front range though his/their photography. Bob
gave "slide shows" back then as programs for the Crane Festival. He offered
some of their framed photographs as prizes. We became friends very early in
those days as folks often got both of us mixed up with the similarity of
names. Those were film camera days and were primitive by today's
technology. Anyway, nice to remember Bob...

Hi all

Sitting on the Bob Rozinski memorial bench while over looking the pond on cottonwood creek, I was able to fill Bob in on what was going on. During our spiritual conversation 25 species of birds made an appearance including all three of the regular occurring teal and even a Black-crowned Night-Heron swooped over the cattails and gave its friendly “wonk” greeting. I wish now I’d brought along my camera as I’m sure Bob would have offered some tips on how to reduce the blur in my photos. If you are out birding Cherry Creek SP and feel like a little company stop by and sit on the Bob Rozinski bench and check in and be sure to bring your camera.

From: Caleb A <calebscotta...>
Subject: [cobirds] Re: ID of Clark’s vs Western at Sterns Lake (Boulder County)
Hi Mark!

For the sake of efficiency, I'll be using WEGR to be Western Grebe and CLGR
to be Clark's Grebe.

You would be correct that there is variation and therefore ambiguity when
it comes to the black and white pattern on the face. From my limited
experience, WEGR tends to be the species that has the most common variation
that brings facial IDs into the gray-zone, and it seems like most CLGR are
pretty straightforward. That being said, looking at a grebe from half a
mile away introduces issues, because we can't see every single bird with
close-up detail as we would like. The other primary mark that is probably
the most useful one to use year-round is the color pattern of the shoulder,
neck, and flanks.

On WEGR, the black extends from the back of the neck to more of the base of
the neck, and that dark plumage (I say dark, because depending on the
age/molt/a bajillion random parameters, it can be black, or some shade of
gray) then goes down the shoulder close to the water. I've only been
birding for a few years, so take this with a grain of salt, but I've never
seen a WEGR in the field that did *not* have dark plumage extend down to
the shoulder that connected to the water. The dark plumage extends down the
flanks, so the bird just has a darker appearance. Where the body of the
bird meets the water on WEGR is usually dark plumage. On CLGR, there is
often much more white on the neck, and the black is restricted to the back
of the neck. The white then comes off the neck and down the shoulder, which
gives the entire front of the bird a much brighter, cleaner GISS. On adult
birds, that white/light gray extends down the flanks that are in contact
with the water. In most cases, you don't even *need* to see the head in
order to make an ID: dark shoulder always means WEGR, no need to wonder. If
where the body comes in contact with the water is pretty clearly white,
then that is most likely CLGR.

All this being said, I should mention that WEGR x CLGR hybrids do occur
sometimes. They probably aren't super common, but I suppose it's never a
bad idea to consider this possibility in those situations when you see a
bird where all the marks are deep in the realm of ambiguity. I didn't talk
much about the bill, because although I'd imagine that's helpful on adult
birds in breeding plumage, I'm not sure how *reliable *of a mark that is.
Sure, CLGR tend to have brighter and cleaner yellow bills, and WEGR have
more dulled colored bills, but this is an even more unreliable mark to base
entire IDs off of. Just to name a few parameters that will be in constant
flux that can change the way a bill looks include lighting, feeding, and
age.

Hope this was helpful in some way :) I'd be interested to hear what more
experienced birders do to identify the large grebes.

Subject: [cobirds] ID of Clark’s vs Western at Sterns Lake (Boulder County)
If anyone has been out to see the Western and possible Clark’s Grebes at Stern’s Lake (Boulder County) I’d love some thoughts on how you determined a Clark’s ID. Additional commentary also welcome from others who would like to lend their expertise.

The two grebes I saw both fit Western or Intermediate but not Clark’s. Flanks on both birds were dark (suggesting Western). Bill color wasn’t different. Both birds had eyes clearly with the dark supercillium area, with the suspected Clark’s having some white in the lores.

Thoughts?

Subject: Re: [cobirds] RE: {Bluebird-Babble} Bluebird dearth
CoBirders

On the outskirts of the box canyon where I live, in the early fall and
early spring, there has been a flock of more than a dozen Western Bluebirds
(at least for the past two years). Last summer, we had two breeding pairs.
This spring, there is but one, single bird. I keep hoping that more will
arrive, but I'm starting to lose that hope.

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Subject: [cobirds] Otero County (SE CO) birding 4/10
Kara Carragher and I birded Otero County today. Started down at Higbee
Valley Road early, saw the usual nice things that live on that road,
Black-throated, Field, Brewer's, and Rufous-crowned Sparrows. Some
lingering winter birds, Steller's and Woodhouse's Scrub-Jays, a Mountain
Chickadee and Townsend's Solitaire. Quite a few Ladder-backed Woodpeckers,
Eastern and Say's Phoebes, Canyon Towhwes, a few Rock and Canyon Wrens, a
Greater Roadrunner, a Swainson's Hawk, an Audubon's Yellow-rumped Warbler,
Yellow-headed Blackbird and Brown-headed Cowbirds. Today, was the first
day of Wild Turkey hunting season, so quite a few hunters down there. Saw
a few other birders too.

Then Lake Holbrook near Rocky Ford (or actually now barely a pond, likely
will be dry soon, if there isn't some water going in there), amazing
numbers of Black-necked Stilts, American Avocets, both Yellowlegs, 5 Snowy
Plovers, Long-biled Dowitchers, Wilson's Phalarope, Franklin's Gulls.

Then Horse Creek Reservoir (NE of Cheraw), where other birders were
present. We saw the continuing Dunlin (one breeding plumage and on
non-breeding plumage) hanging out with a flock of Baird's Sandpipers, also
Least Sandpipers. Snowy Plovers and Black-necked Stilts were here too. I
hadn't been here in many years, since it was dry for a while, now it has a
good amount of water and shorebirds. The road out to Horse Creek Reservoir
is several miles of dirt road, which if it rains the road will get muddy
for sure, like pretty much every dirt road in SE Colorado.

There's possible wet weather next week coming, Lake Holbrook could use some
rain, so it won't dry up. Usually the best shorebirding in SE Colorado is
late April and early May.

Good birding,

Pueblo West, CO

about 40 gulls was lounging on a point, with a somewhat surprising three
adult Lesser Black-backs present. One of them was noticeably darker than
the other two. Perhaps the darkest extreme of graellsii, but I don't have
any experience with the other subspecies, such as intermedius.
Unfortunately they were not very close and took flight while I was scanning
other parts of the lake, so no great images, and I doubt anything
conclusive can be ascertained. A couple of not-great pics here: eBird
Checklist - 9 Apr 2021 - Trinidad Reservoir (SP & State Wildlife Area)
<https://ebird.org/checklist/S85150195>

No other birds of note and not many birds overall, though it was quite
windy and I didn't walk around very much.

Subject: [cobirds] Osprey Pair Building nest
Today I was very surprised to see a pair of osprey building a nest at Home
Lake SWA! This is the first time we have had any build a nest here in the
Valley flats. We see them in migration here but no breeding evidence. Here
is a pic from this morning.

Subject: [cobirds] BBS Routes
Colorado now has only 8 unassigned Breeding Bird Survey routes (out of 132) -- maybe you can pick up one - providing you have the requisite skills --  especially good Sount ID ability as well as sight (on my routes, sound IDs comprise over 75% of the records..
            A BBS routecovers 24.5 miles. Observers record all the birds they hear and see during a3-minute stop, then drive a half-mile to the next stop. You run the route, onceonly, during the peak of the songbird singing season, from May 25 on the plainsto July 15 in the high country. The ability to identify species by sound iscrucial--I record 75-85% of the birds on my routes by sound, not sight.             We seek a commitment ofthree years, because the BBS prefers route data run by the same person forat least 3 years.             Thefollowing lists the available routes; I can send more detailed descriptions toyou if you’d like to consider one but want more information. I know it’s old–fashioned,but I use the DeLorme (printed on paper) Atlas to locate routes.

Cobirders -

I'm still "wading" through the article referenced below
about the massive bird die-off that occurred last fall during migration amd
which was attributed for the most part to the two largest recorded fires
ion Colorado; EVER!

I feel pretty confident when I conjecture that the dearth of bluebirds
during this spring's migration may be attributed to the the die-off
attributed to last fall's two major forest fires. In other words, ther
population pf bluiebiords was hot severely by those fires, and there is
not the "normal" number of those birds available to comprise a "norrmal"
spring migration he on Colprado's Fronmt Ranmge.re

They are competitive for food sources and nest sites and often found together in similar habitat. I don’t believe anyone has discovered anything other than that between the two species (like some sort of symbiotic relationship).

Today the black-capped chickadee appeared an hour later (12 noon instead of 11), and worked on the limb cavity for about 6 minutes. You could see it taking out pieces of tree and dropping it to the ground. No nuthatches showed up but when a male house finch flew into the tree about 10 feet away and started singing, the black-capped chickadee left. The house finch has done quite a lot of singing from this tree since then on and off and as of an hour later, the chickadee hasn't returned. Maybe tomorrow?

I can report, although informally, that I did not hear or see many bluebirds while I visited various nest boxes around Castle Rock for box maintenance & repair this season. In fact, despite visiting 14 different sites between the first week of March and yesterday (always on calm sunny days), I heard/saw bluebirds only twice. That is definitely very low compared to previous years. But I can also report more specifically that we found only 3 complete nests and 5 incomplete nests in our 190 nest boxes last week during the first week of monitoring, compared to 5 complete nests and almost a dozen incomplete nests during the first week of monitoring in 2020.

We have not seen many bluebirds this spring, so I compared this year with the three prior years' data. This year we have seen only one or two of either species only once in a while. The last 3 years we saw them almost daily starting in mid-March.

This drop seems striking, at least along our road and on the trail we walk regularly. Have others noticed this pattern?

Visitors:
Several people stopping to ask about us. Larry and Mike spent most of the
first hour with us. Skye spent the second hour and may volunteer.


Weather:
Very pretty day, increasing clouds and wind until past noon, then a bit
calmer and more sunny. Windiest around noon B5-B6, yet often calm during
any hour. Winds shifting almost every hour; out of the west or north. Temp
from 15c up to 20c, barometer falling 24.43 inHg down to 24.36. Cloud cover
started with clouds to the west, they gradually moved east, sunny last
hour. Horizons visible. Trail is dry and hardpacked.

Raptor Observations:
Local TV entertained me on the hike up, followed by a local RT. Most
raptors to the east around eye level, except one SS scrapping the tree tops
very low to the east of the ridge. One UA very high this afternoon
overhead. Started out at a good clip this morning, then numbers dwindled.
Local raptors and song birds disappeared till later.

Non-raptor Observations:
Trail steady but not busy. Woodhouse, magpie, mtn chickadee, ravens,
bushtit, swifts, solitaires. The white throated swifts tended to come by in
pairs very close to the ridge. A few were quite a ways up.

Predictions:
Is our weather to good for migration? I'm predicting another day of 12+
raptors.

Dinosaur Ridge - Denver Field Ornithologists information may be found at:
http://www.dfobirds.org


More site information at hawkcount.org: https://hawkcount.org/siteinfo.php?rsite=123

Site Description:
Dinosaur Ridge is the only regularly staffed hawkwatch in Colorado and is
the best place in the world to see migrating Ferruginous Hawks. Dinosaur
Ridge may be the best place in the country to see the rare dark morph of
the Broad-winged Hawk (a few are seen each spring). Hawkwatchers who linger
long enough may see resident Golden Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks and Prairie
Falcons, in addition to migrating Swainson's, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned
Hawks, American Kestrels and Turkey Vultures. Peregrine Falcons and
Ferruginous Hawks are uncommon; Northern Goshawk is rare but regular.
Non-raptor species include Rock Wren, and sometimes Bushtit, Western
Bluebird, Sandhill Crane, White-throated Swift, American White Pelican or
Dusky Grouse. Birders of any skill level are always welcome. HawkWatch at
Dinosaur Ridge is generally staffed by volunteers from about 9 AM to around
3 PM from March 1st to May 7th.

Directions to site:
From exit 259 on I-70 towards Morrison, drive south under freeway and take
left into first parking lot, the Stegosaurus lot. Follow small signs from
the southwest end of lot to the hawkwatch site. The hike starts heading
east on an old two-track and quickly turns south onto a trail on the west
side of the ridge. When the trail nears the top of the ridge, turn left,
head through the gate, and walk to the clearly-visible, flat area at the
crest of the ridge. (Distance: 0.56 miles, Elevation gain: 259 feet)

Subject: [cobirds] Adult BAEA hauling in eaglet's first meal - Jeffco
I was out walking Standley Lake's north shore (N end of Jefferson County)
about 5pm yesterday 4/7, and was able to capture one of the adult BAEA's
hauling in a duck (appears to be a Mallard). It was pretty far out, so the
pics aren't as crispy as I'd like, but good enough to witness the effort
put in to bring it to shore, rest for a couple minutes, then deliver it to
the nest.

After talking with a ranger, she said it was dad bringing in the new
eaglet's first meal.

Subject: [cobirds] Tonight! Fort Colllins Audubon Society hosts “Army Cutworm - Colorado’s Migrant 'Miller' Moth”
*Fort Collins Audubon* invites you to join a *virtual program* (via Zoom)
featuring *Whitney Cranshaw*, professor emeritus of Entomology at Colorado
State University. Whitney will be presenting *"Army Cutworm - Colorado’s
Migrant 'Miller' Moth” *tonight, Thursday, April 8th, 2021; *Announcements
at 7:00pm and Program at 7:20pm.*

* Enter the following link on your web browser at or before 7 p.m. and
follow the instructions to join the meeting:
https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84890366654
<https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89316524871> *

”Annual migrations of some kinds of North American butterflies and
dragonflies (as well as birds!) are well known and often highly
popularized. However, perhaps one of the most interesting migration stories
in North America involves the army cutworm with its low elevation/high
elevation migration cycle that occurs entirely within the borders of the
United States and is most clearly evident in eastern Colorado. The focus of
this evening’s discussion will be this rather notorious “miller moth” and
explore the life history and habits of this insect and the various impacts
it has on ecology and human interests.

Whitney Cranshaw is presently an emeritus professor of entomology at
Colorado State University, following retirement in July 2020. During his 37
years at Colorado State he primarily worked on issues related to the better
understanding and management of insects that affected horticultural plants
in the state.”

Subject: [cobirds] Re: Bluebird dearth
In Chaffee County we have noticed a difference as well this year. We
noticed some very large flocks of Mt. Bluebirds in March but those seem to
have disappeared now and resident birds that are often around nest boxes by
this time seem significantly reduced. Mt. Bluebirds were one of the
species that were found here as victims of the September snow event. We
have a county wide nest box monitoring program here that may eventually
provide some insight.

Subject: Re: [cobirds] Bluebird dearth
Bluebird migration, as visible from my home on the west side of Superior,
was a little different than usual this year. Normally I'll see small
flocks of Mountain Bluebirds passing by intermittently over a period of
several weeks. This year, I only saw them for three days (around March
23-26) but there were at least a hundred each day, sometimes in flocks of
40-50.

There have been some good-sized flocks (30+) in other areas of S. Boulder
County since then, but not near my house. Overall, I'd say the total
number I've seen this year is higher than usual.
