Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for August 21, 2017
Hello cobirders,

Our report is called Rare Bird Alert because search engines find it
better. The report is really "Uncommon Bird Report" Not all uncommon
birds are rare birds. Birders may want to know where to see them anyway!
Without being a member, "cobirders" can be read at:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cobirders/messages

Report Uncommon Birds at: 303-324-7994 or http://coloradobirdingsociety.net

NOTE: Reports do not confirm sightings. Choose to chase at your own risk
and expense.!
NOTE: To reduce length of report, only recent sightings listed; visit
Colorado Birding Society's website everyday for additional sightings!

Subject: [cobirders] Curve-billed Thrasher [Weld]
Hi all

Woke up to an active Curve-billed Thrasher in yard this morning. She was in and out our Rabbitbrush and Lilacs-very entertaining, tearing everything apart in litter. Photos posted later this morning. Also, Western Wood Pewee fly catching and then chased by our local family of five Logger-headed Shrikes. These five have been with us for about a month now--the three young are very entertaining chasing bugs on the ground as well as pinning them to screened windows. They perch very close to windows for excellent photos. On evening walks we can walk right by them on fence lines without them flying away, pretty cool.

FYI, Crom Lake no longer shorebird habitat--filled up again last few days.

Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Saw a Wilson's Warbler here on 8/14 went back again this evening 8/16 to confirm and it was still there in the willows that line the permanent boardwalk. There were bushtits, chickadees and blue grey gnatcatchers in the willow thickets as well. Coopers hawk wasnt around this evening so the small birds seemed to be fancy and free.

Subject: [cobirders] Sage thrasher - N. Divide, Teller County
Greetings;

I had a sage thrasher in a meadow at 9100 ft at the 'Women's Preserve' (I think that's what it's called) on the Pike NF just N. of Divide in Teller County. Being new to CO mts, but certainly not new to sage thrashers, this seemed like a 'unusual' sighting - so thought I'd post it. I sighted the bird on Sat 8/12 - but forgot to post this.

general location is here (parking area): https://www.google.com/maps/@38.9716499,-105.168447,97m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en https://www.google.com/maps/@38.9716499,-105.168447,97m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en

Just inside the gate, follow the small 'trail' to the left, Follow down to the meadow and willow thickets. I saw the thrasher at the second thicket of willows after crossing the 'creek' (such as it is).

Would love to know how 'uncommon' this might or might not be. I'm not accustomed to finding sage thrashers in montane meadows . . but . .

Kelly

Subject: [cobirders] Rocky Mt Arsenal Adams County
Hello,

We walked about 4 miles at Rocky Mountain Arsenal from the Prairie Trail to Woodland Trail to Viewing Blind back to Havana Ponds a few interesting birds were seen. In the first grove of trees along the Woodland Trail east of the Havana Ponds trail We counted 26 yellow warblers. The second grove of trees was more interesting. A juvenile Red-headed Woodpecker was on the dead trees next to the four foot high woodpile. If you get to the six foot woodpile north of a bench, you went too far. Just east of the Red-headed Woodpecker six Blue Jays were very noisy. We hoped for an owl and watched the cottonwoods. Finally a Yellow-billed Cuckoo moved away from the Blue Jays. It flew farther south along the north-south line of cottonwoods east of the dead grove. At the third grove east of the Havana trail there was a Western Wood-pewee and 18 Lark Sparrows. The fourth grove which is at the trailhead and bench for the Viewing blind trail had another Western Wood-pewee and a non-adult male Bullock's Oriole.

In the trees around the View blind We counted 8 Western Wood-pewees, 6 Yellow Warblers, an Orange-crowned Warbler and male Hairy Woodpecker. We then drove the Wildlife loop. A Red-eyed Vireo was in the cottonwoods along the canal near 6th avenue and Potomac, where the Eastern Phoebes nested the last two years.

Inside the closed bison area we found one Burrowing Owl, a male Blue Grosbeak, a McCown's Longspur, many Vesper Sparrows and a few White-crowned Sparrows.

Two other interesting birds escaped identification. We thought two Chimney Swifts circled over the Rod and Gun Club Pond. They were too high. In the thick woods part of the Woodland Trail some type of chicken like bird ran across the path.

Jacob Washburn and Jamie Thompson

Subject: [cobirders] Walker gravel pits s castle wood canyon
Jamie Thompson and I walked from the Walker Gravel Pond south to the end of the Cherry Creek trail. We never found the Eastern Phoebe, three House Wrens were near the windy trail sign. Two Eastern Kingbird's were north of the footbridge north of highway 86. Another two House Wrens and a pair of Gray Catbirds were in trees just north of the highway.

South of 86 two more Catbirds, two House Wrens and a pair of Ruby crowned Kinglets. Coming back on the west side of Cherry Creek two Eastern Kingbird's were feeding young near the footbridge.

At Castlewood Canyon State Park we had a Turkey Vulture, Western Flycatcher and Western Wood pewee. No Bobolinks or Dickcissels.

Subject: [cobirders] Harriman Lake Park, Jefferson County
Hello cobirders,

Bird report below, trust me.

Anyone seeing a nut standing in the rain for three+ hours at Harriman Lake Park this afternoon, it was me! I rigged up a tripod with an umbrella and another with my camera and took shots (can they still be called photos?) of the swallows flying around the western end of the lake.

While studying the swallows I noticed that the species tend to fly different patterns and speeds. After a while, I would look without binoculars and guess species; then use binoculars to confirm. Accurate rate was close to perfect.

That got me thinking about the Strouhal number and whether I could calculate what I was seeing. For those not knowing, Strouhal number may be used to calculate flight speed of birds (in some cases when flight is in straight line). The number is equal to frequency (of wing beats) times amplitude (vertical distance traveled by wing tip during a flapping stroke) divided by forward speed (distance traveled per second).

Took over 1400 photos and stopwatch measurements, it will take a few days to summarize my data, depends on how well the photos come out, I was able to get 1/2000 shutter speed out of my camera during some of the brighter moments in the cloudy skies.

All this was brought to mind as one particular swallow was much faster and flying straighter than most of the rest.

Swallow count was hundreds of Barn Swallows, dozens of Tree Swallows, four Violet-green Swallows, two Cliff Swallows and the speedy swallow.

I watched a potential Cave Swallow (speedy) at one stretch for 12 minutes as it flew towards me and parallel many times. It eventually flew to the eastern end of the lake. Many of the swallows would rest on the rocks at the southwest corner of the lake. Regrettably the possible Cave Swallow did not.

The speedy swallow had a buffy throat that extended behind the nape, rusty forehead, and no white "headlights" on forehead. Southwestern race of Cliff Swallow does show rusty forehead but also dark chestnut throat which "speedy" lacked. I hope I captured a photo of the mystery bird!

Rain increased, I departed.

Another bird of note was a Red-eyed Vireo. It was along the southern side of the lake up the "canal" that runs south.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] World Shorebirds Day 2017
Thanks for the admins' support!


Dear Friends,

The 4th World Shorebirds Day is around the corner and in a month hundreds of birdwatchers are going out for counting shorebirds. The Global Shorebird Counting is a popular program of World Shorebirds Day that will take part between 1-7 September 2017. Registration is already open and available at this link: https://goo.gl/9Q9ZSN

For committed and returning counters a loyalty program was announced last year. I encourage you to register through the form embedded in our blogpost and give yourself a chance to win one of the fantastic prizes. Please find the post at this link: https://goo.gl/hftjym

It would be fantastic to hit an all time high record in the registered sites in 2017. Results of the previous year's counting will be published later (hopefully shortly).

Follow and subscribe to our blog at https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com

Looking forward to seeing you among the supporters of World Shorebirds Day.

Very best wishes, Szimi

Subject: [cobirders] Yesterday at Barr Lake (Adams County) & Dickcissel Photos
Hello cobirders;


Excerpt from my entry to the CoBus trip blog from yesterday:


The highlight was near the start of the trek. I warbler popped out of the willows near mile 8.9. In the next 20 minutes, I was able to get views of the whole bird. Immediately I saw long yellow undertail coverts, which made the tail look short. I suspected that the bird was at the time an "Oporornis" species. They are no longer "Oporornis" but "Geothlypis"

The bird had no visible eye ring, yellow throat, little breast band, yellow belly to undertail coverts. Above the head appeared brownish gray with brownish gray back. Finally, I saw the yellowish supraloral.

Fall Mourning Warblers are most likely confused with fall MacGillivray's Warblers. The bird lacked the facial pattern of a Kentucky Warbler and the bold eye ring of a Connecticut Warbler. Too bad, a sighting of either would have been a great find.

The lack of eye ring, yellow supraloral, lack of grayish hood, short looking tail indicated Mourning Warbler over a MacGillivray's Warbler, which would show a grayish hood, longer looking tail with shorter undertail coverts, whitish supraloral.

I put photos of one of the many Dickcissels observed along Weld County Road 42 on 7/28 on the "Recent Witness Photos" link on the Colorado Birding Society's website:
http://coloradobirdingsociety.net

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Weld County Birding, many Dickcissels
Hello cobirders;

Coming down from the mountains, I was able to relocate two Flammulated Owls (different locations) along Larimer County Road 44H (Larimer).

I spent the morning driving around the Pawnee National Grasslands area (Weld). One each Mountain Plover was found at a traditional nesting field and along CR 100, east of CR 390. . A couple of Burrowing Owls were also along CR 100.

Two Chestnut-collared Longspurs and half a dozen McCown's Longspurs were found along CR 96, east of CR 69. I had to drive up and down CR 96 several times before finding a Cassin's Sparrow, Cassin's Sparrow and Brewer's Sparrow.

At Lower Latham Reservoir CR 48 wetlands were dry, no shorebirds. Beebe Draw Ponds had only a little water, no shorebirds.

Dickcissels appeared to be everywhere south of Lower Latham Reservoir. Six were 0.1 miles east of CR 47 and CR 42. Another three were east of that spot. Stop and listen at the many alfalfa fields.

Another Dickcissel was along CR 40, east of CR 47. Two additional were along CR 20, east of CR 41 (another alfalfa field).

A stop at Ireland Reservoir found it full of water with little shore. Only a few American White Pelicans and Western Grebes were on the lake.

My birding day ended at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area. One Long-eared Owl and Great Horned Owl were the highlights. I stayed around until dark; no Short-eared Owls appeared this evening.

Visited a friend's ranch east of Banner and picked up another two Long-eared Owls and a pair of Great Horned Owls.

Just returned home after a week of owling and no sleep, going to bed and will have to look through photos later.


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Could not find the Rivoli's Hummingbird, Gilpin County
Hello Birders,

Jamie and I looked for the Rivoli's Hummingbird for a couple of hours, did not find it.  A Black-chinned Hummingbird was in the trees around the Barr Lake Visitor's Center.  A Common Nighthawk was on the Picadilly Road telephone wires south of Barr.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for July 26, 2017
Hello cobirders,

Our report is called Rare Bird Alert because search engines find it
better. The report is really "Uncommon Bird Report" Not all uncommon
birds are rare birds. Birders may want to know where to see them anyway!
Without being a member, "cobirders" can be read at:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cobirders/messages

NOTE: Reports do not confirm sightings. Choose to chase at your own risk
and expense.!

Subject: [cobirders] Help with ID [2 Attachments]
Fellow Birders,
I am sure the answer is pretty simple, but I’m stumped on the ID of this bird. I thought it might be an eastern kingbird, but that doesn’t seem right. Any help would be appreciated!

Subject: [cobirders] Details: Colorado State & County Bird Checklists Updated for 58th Supplement to AOU Checklist
Hello cobirders,

Richard Stevens is "stuck" in Jackson County. Not really, he is lucky; he is avoiding the heat down here in Denver.

Our cabin has electricity now, no internet, still better than using a lantern. He updated the Colorado State and County bird checklists last week according to the 58th supplement to the AOU Checklist.

We had our CoBus meeting up there on Saturday, combined with a farewell party for Ray Simmons who is leaving us for California.

Richard handed out the new bird checklists. You can see the new State and County checklists on the Bird Checklist link on the CoBus website
http://coloradobirdingsociety.net

The Historic Colorado State List stands at 503 species. Many new additions to County lists have been added. The lists lost one species as Thayer's Gulls are now considered a subspecies of Iceland Gulls.

Some other changes include:

A. Red Crossbill split: Cassia Crossbill split from the rest. They are found in the Albion Mountains and South Hills of Cassia County, Idaho

B. Thayer's Gull now subspecies of Iceland Gull

C. split of Magnificent Hummingbird, the ABA bird is now called Rivoli's Hummingbird

D. split of Northern Harrier, AOU bird is Northern Harrier (Circus hudsonius)

E. split of Northern Shrikes, AOU bird is Northern Shrike (Lanius borealis)

F. LeConte's is one word

G. split of dabbling ducks (see website for details)

H. rearrangement of "Chen" goose (Chen now gone)

I: Yellow-breasted Chat no longer "Icteria virens" in own family "Icteriidae"

J: new sequence for sandpipers

K: new sequence for Finch Genera

L: changes to sequence and subfamily classification within New World Blackbirds

See website for additional details

Subject: [cobirders] Mississippi Kites Pueblo County
Reporting from Pueblo, to the east of Pueblo blvrd., Just across from the zoo, I've observed and heard several Mississippi Kites soaring overhead throughout the afternoon. I didn't realize they came this far West. I'm used to seeing them in SW Kansas every summer. Nice treat to see them here this summer!!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for July 22, 2017
Hello cobirders,

Our report is called Rare Bird Alert because search engines find it
better. The report is really "Uncommon Bird Report" Not all uncommon
birds are rare birds. Birders may want to know where to see them anyway!
Without being a member, "cobirders" can be read at:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cobirders/messages

Report Uncommon Birds at: 303-324-7994 or http://coloradobirdingsociety.net

NOTE: Reports do not confirm sightings. Choose to chase at your own risk
and expense.!
NOTE: With the many reports coming in daily this spring, RBA will reflect
