Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for January 18, 2019
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] Birding Ethics and the Morrison Golden-crowned Sparrow
Hello birders,

The email below was sent two days ago to cobirds listserve.

We had received information on January 3 that the homeowner was getting
upset with birders. It seems that some birders ignored the warnings.

Please respect private property so that birding hosts will respect birders!

email 1/13/2019

This evening I had the opportunity to speak with the owner of the house
that has had the Golden-crowned Sparrow frequenting his feeders. When
birders first started showing up last month, he was quite tolerant and even
enjoyed talking to folks about the bird he was responsible for hosting at
his feeders. Unfortunately, a few recent encounters has soured him to the
whole bird chasing phenomenon.

He was frustrated with people walking onto private property without any
apparent concern for the owners. Furthermore, he was appalled that people
were posting his address online. He indicated that most people who showed
up were quite considerate and friendly but a few groups were downright rude.

He says if things get worse he will take down his feeders, a loss for him
as he enjoys the birds and a loss for the birding community as many folks
have visited and enjoyed this pretty little bird.

When I asked how we could rectify this situation, he said it would be great
if visitors could stay on the road and not wander onto the private parking
lot just south of his house.

Particularly since the incorporation of social media and ebird to the
birding community at large, consistent unusual or rare birds can be an
issue for private land owners. Lets all try hard to be as courteous and
respectful as we can and hopefully give the birding community a better
reputation.

Subject: [cobirders] Pink-footed Goose and Barnacle Goose In Colorado; not making Colorado Checklist
Hello cobirders,

The Colorado Bird Records Board met last Saturday. On a vote of 0-7 both
the Pink-footed Goose and Barnacle Goose were rejected to add to the
Historic Colorado Bird Checklist.

We are more interested in keeping the Colorado State list accurate as
possible than just adding numbers.

The Pink-footed Goose is too uncommon to be accepted without further
information on its origin. Few US States where a Pink-footed Goose is more
likely to occur have accepted records.

Barnacle Geese are frequently sold to private owners. They can escape and
wander.

Still, you can now see both in Colorado.

Subject: [cobirders] Impromptu Day of Birding
Hello cobirders,

I was not planning on birding today, just watching two football games. Took a friend to early church and lunch, but when I passed Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) had to stop and check for the Rusty Blackbird(s).

My only equipment today was the 8X21 binoculars that I keep in the car. We had stopped by another friend's house to say hi. He was gifted a new scope for Christmas and returned my backup scope (good deeds do pay off, later)..

It was a beautiful morning with mostly unmarked snow covered grounds. Wind was calm to immeasurable. The female Rusty Blackbird was searching for food up the western stream that flows into the swim beach pond.

The male was not found, neither was the Brown Thrasher. I circled the pond area looking for Brown Thrasher tracks. Several Black-billed Magpie tracks were observed as they made them. Whether I could distinguish between magpie and thrasher tracks was undetermined.

I detoured to Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) on the way home. My backup scope came in handy! From the signed Lower swim beach parking area (northeast of Visitor's Center), I picked out an Iceland Gull among hundreds of Ring-billed and two Herring Gulls.

Then I hiked up the western parking area (just north of the boat storage area). Another Iceland Gull was not far off the dam. The Long-tailed Duck continues in the open water off the swim beach parking area. However, it was around the corner from that parking area and out of view from the lower parking area.

I did see what could be called a Glaucous-winged Gull if one is so inclined.. The Glaucous Gull and Great Black-backed Gull reported yesterday were not found.

The way home passes not far from the eastern end of the First Creek Trail (Denver). Hence, I had to stop and go for Rusty Blackbirds in two Counties in one day.

The four Rusty Blackbirds were in approximately the same area of First Creek as yesterday. They were just northeast of the horse corrals. Three Rusty Blackbirds stayed close together as yesterday, the fourth loosely trailed behind when they moved.

I will put photos on the Colorado Birding Society's website in a few hours.

"recent favorite photos" link

No Short-eared Owls appeared at sunset along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver).

I missed the football games, had a great winter day of birding!

Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders,
Jamie and I stayed on the west side of Denver today.  Arapahoe County birds included the Tundra Swan at Eaglewatch Lake, the Black Scoter and Greater Scaup at South Platte Park Reservoir and the Harris's Sparrow at Carson Nature Center.  The red Fox Sparrow showed at Red Rocks Park in Jefferson County.  When we headed east to the CoBus meeting we found a Barn Owl at Barr Lake in Adams County.

Good morning cobirders,

Adams Cty
John Breitsch reports a Winter Wren at the South Platte Birding Area at 88th avenue. I would imagine looking for foot prints in the snow will put you in the right place

Jim Merritt continues to relocate the Field Sparrow (Merritt:Tonnessen, 12/1) at Red Rock Canyon Open Space

Weld Cty
Nick Komar saw the Pink-footed Goose (Michael King, 12/13) again at Milavec Reservoir. It flew off but usually returns throughout the day. Also search the golf course to the north

Subject: [cobirders] Southern Arapahoe County to DIA Airport
Hello cobirders;

Yesterday's weather prediction was correct. We woke up to snow covered ground and it continued to snow most of the day.

High temperature was 42 degrees at the airport. Winds were 12-13 mph with gusts to 17 mph.

Two things I did not want to do today. First, I did not want to count Red-winged Blackbirds along the First Creek Trail (Denver County). Searching through 400+ Red-winged Blackbirds during two previous trips and missing the Rusty Blackbirds were enough. Second, I did not want to drive on the snowy roads and in the traffic.

What to do, I parked at the 64th Avenue Light Rail parking area off Tower Road and took the Light Rail down to South Platte Park off Mineral Avenue (Arapahoe).

A 1.3-mile hike got me to the South Platte Park Reservoir. Along the way, The Tundra Swan was observed just 10 feet offshore at the southern end of Eaglewatch Lake.

At South Platte Park Reservoir (Arapahoe side), the Black Scoter was directly west of the gazebo outside of the east side of the Lake. At least two Greater Scaup were also on the Lake.

Another two Greater Scaup were on the South Platte River, north of C470 Bridge.

Back at the Carson Visitor's Center, an American Dipper flew up river and landed under the Mineral Avenue Bridge.

The Harris's Sparrow was with a dozen American Tree Sparrows and four White-crowned Sparrows in the willows at the southwest corner of the building.

I hopped on the Light Rail and headed toward the 64th Avenue parking area. With a couple of hours of daylight remaining and an all day Light Rail pass, I decided to ride out to the Airport.

The return trip was timed to pass by the Disposal Dump and outlying areas at sunset. While I did not see any Short-eared Owls, a Ferruginous Hawk, Prairie Falcon and two Red-tailed Hawks were a nice consolation.

I missed Denver's terrible traffic and enjoyed quite a birding day on this snowy Friday!

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] First Day of 2019, Birds (Adams, Jefferson, and Arapahoe Counties
Hello cobirders;


After having a good 2018, I wanted to start 2019 off well. Could not take my camera with a temperature reading of 10 degrees.


Barn Owl at Barr Lake (Adams).


Barrow's Goldeneye is still on the South Platte River (Adams), south of green/white tower (Adams). South Platte Birding Area is good location to find many varieties of common ducks.


Fox Sparrow (red) was at Red Rocks Park (Jefferson). Missed Golden-crowned Sparrow in Morrison for third time.


Black Scoter is still on South Platte Park Reservoir (Arapahoe). Greater Scaup also around.


Rusty Blackbird pair was along western stream just south of Cherry Creek Reservoir main road. Lake mostly frozen, missed Long-tailed Ducks, perhaps they were the pair reported in Littleton today. Did find a Long-eared Owl, Northern Harrier, Red-tailed Hawk, Brewer's Blackbirds, Northern Shrike, Song Sparrows.


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Search for Morrison Golden-crowned Sparrow & a Stop at Cherry Creek Reservoir
Hello cobirders;

Dave King and I spent more than two hours trying to find the Golden-crowned Sparrow recently reported in Morrison. Provided GPS waypoints have the sparrow wandering quite a distance. Could there be more than on Golden-crowned Sparrow in the area?

Eventually we tired of our lack of success and abandoned the task.

In the afternoon, patience paid off when I hiked around Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County).

I searched the western and eastern drainages that flow into the swim beach pond. The Rusty Blackbirds were not there or at the pond. After checking the swim beach for blackbirds, I returned to the Pond.

The sun warmed up a bit as I sat and watched Starlings and Black-billed Magpies. The Magpies stopped for a drink and the Starlings for a quick bath.

When I was about to leave, the female Rusty Blackbird emerged from the cattails at the western drainage into the pond. She walked the north side of the pond searching for food. Perhaps thirty seconds later, the male Rusty Blackbird came out and followed her.

Light from the setting sun was better from the Lake Loop on the south side of the Reservoir. I could see only three slivers of open water in the ice-covered Lake.

The closest patch had many Common Mergansers, a dozen Common Goldeneyes and a few Lesser Scaup. The next open space to the north contained mostly Common Mergansers and a couple of Common Goldeneyes.

While the most northern open area had only a few Common Mergansers and four Common Goldeneyes.

While deciding whether to drive to Aurora Reservoir (9 miles to the east), I scoped the three areas again. This time I picked out the white face of a diving male Long-tailed Duck. After waiting a minute or so, both Long-tailed Ducks surfaced!

Later Rebecca and I went to dinner in downtown Denver. Afterwards we enjoyed the colored lights at the Zoo. The number (hundreds) of other people there was amazing.

Afterwards, we walked around outside of the southwest end of the zoo. An Eastern Screech-Owl responded to my recordings! Another Eastern Screech-Owl was heard at a friend's Park Hill home!

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) and Bluff Lake Nature Area (Denver)
Hello cobirders;

While traveling to visit friends and a relative near Cherry Creek Reservoir, Rebecca and I briefly stopped at the State Park.

The two Long-tailed Ducks swam near a group of Common Goldeneyes in the middle of the lake. The two Rusty Blackbirds were again up the drainage between the main road and the swim beach pond.

Later we found a Burger King open on a day when most businesses were closed.. Afterwards we walked around Bluff Lake Nature Area (Denver County) the hour before sunset. The Harris's Sparrow was again loosely associated with a flock of six or so White-crowned Sparrows.

Continued Good Birding and Happy holidays!

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek State Park Arapahoe County
HelloNobody had updated the Cherry Creek State Park birdsrecently.  It took a while but I did findmy target birds.

 The pair of Rusty Blackbirdswere not around the swim beach pond. Instead they were in the cattails and first wet open space south of themain road and along the western drainage into the pond.

 From the Lake Loophundreds of Common Mergansers, two dozen Red-breasted Mergansers and a fewCommon Goldeneyes were seen in the middle of the reservoir.

 I scoped the reservoir againfrom the West Shades Picnic area.  Agroup of gulls on the edge of the ice included eight Herring Gulls, oneCalifornia Gull, six Ring-billed Gulls and two Iceland Gulls, Thayer'ssubspecies.

 Looking through hundreds ofCommon Mergansers below the dam I finally found the two Long-tailed Ducks.  They were about 100 yards north of themarina.
 Two Brewer's Blackbirds wereat the southwest boat ramp.  Three BaldEagles stood along the edge of the ice.
Good Birding

Subject: [cobirders] Gyrfalcon back, Larimer County, Warning about Pink-footed Goose
Hello
The Gyrfalcon was seen about an hour ago along Trilby Road, east of Taft Hill Road, Larimer County.  Beware both a Prairie Falcon and Ferruginous Hawk are also in the area.
Beware about the Pink-footed Goose, there is a Greater White-fronted Goose also on Milavec Reservoir.  When I was there a few days ago, two groups claimed to be looking at the Pink-footed.  The groups were 200 yards apart and looking in opposite directions.  When I pointed out to group 2 that the Pink-footed Goose was 200 yards to the northeast, they told me I was wrong as they were looking at it.  I left.  Maybe group 2 will read this or not.

Subject: [cobirders] Rocky Mountain Arsenal Adams County
Hello.

Left work early and birded the Arsenal. An Iceland Gull was on the ice at Lake Ladora. I circled Mary's Lake, walked to the Rod and Gun Club pond and did the Legacy trail. Three Tree Sparrows and two Song total sparrow count. Two adult Bald Eagles flew over Lower Derby Lake. One Long dared Owl along Legacy trail.

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek Reservoir, Arapahoe County
Hello cobirders;

With the high winds, it was a cold 49 degrees today. Gusts to 19 mph.

I managed to get over to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) for an hour. The two Rusty Blackbirds were back walking around the north end of the pond northwest of the swim beach.

From the Lake Loop, I found the two Long-tailed Ducks and a Red-breasted Merganser. The Long-tails were among Common Goldeneye just as Davie suggested. The male Red-breasted Merganser was in the huge group of Common Goldeneyes.

Two Bald Eagles stood on the ice edge.

Continued Good Birding!
