Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for September 20, 2018
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!

Art 3:10 pm Rich Stevens found the Prothonotary Warbler 12-15 feet off the ground in cottonwoods directly south of the North marina restrooms. When I arrived it was on the dead limbs 20 yards to east.

Rich also found the three jaegers and Sabine's Gull below the dam. I am still looking.qqqààaàa1

Subject: [cobirders] Walk Around Barr Lake (Adams County) on Friday 9/14
Hello cobirders;

I decided to wait to see if anyone else had relocated the Little Gull at Prewitt Reservoir (Logan/Washington) before making the long drive north.

Instead, I walked Barr Lake (Adams) shore from the Niedrach Trail to the dam and back. Temperature was only 91 degrees; perhaps the sun reflecting off the sand or the 8-9 mph hot wind, it was quite hot.

Best shorebirds were north of the banding station. Six Pectoral Sandpipers and a Black-bellied Plover walked the south shore. A Caspian Tern was north of the same area.

Twenty one+ Red-necked Phalaropes were below the dam. I

I returned to the nature center by way of the banding area. A loose flock of two dozen or so birds was in the willows at the northwest end of the banding area.

The flock included a Townsend's Warbler, Cassin's Vireo, a pair of Wilson's Warblers, four Yellow-rumped Warblers and six Black-capped Chickadees.

Later, I found no Burrowing Owls along the DIA Owl Loop.


Continuing Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] September 2018 long awaited "Colorado Field Notes"
Hello cobirders,

Rebecca and I just sent out September's "Colorado Field Notes". Richard stayed up all night and put it together. Electric outages, cut cable lines, we thought the issue doomed. Thanks to all who kept going with the ordeal.

September's issue includes:

Birding In Colorado Cemeteries (oasis for migrating birds)
Green Herons in Colorado 2018 (it's been a good year to find them)
M&M Ducks (Mexican Ducks now considered a separate species)
Colorado Bird Records Board Update State List (list now stands at 509 with California Condor pending and surely will reluctantly become 510, now accepted by AOU, see August 2018 "Colorado Field Notes" for photo
Some Confusing Fall Warbler Separations
Jaegers Visiting Colorado (three at Chatfield State Park now)
Additional Photos
Uncommon Bird Sightings August, 2018
Colorado Statewide Bird Trips

Good Birding & Enjoy!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for September 11, 2018
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!

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

I agree with you. Saw all three from top of dam.

Subject: Chatfield Reservoir Jaegers

Hello Terry,

I went over to Chatfield Reservoir to see the jaegers. From the marina
sandspit I thought one was a Long-tailed Jaeger (small head, bill and
streaks on back quite visible) and the other a Pomarine Jaeger (barrel
chested, less black on bill, lacked distinctive streaks).

On the north side I walked to the eastern end of the dam. Discovered a
third jaeger.

Let me know what you think

Subject: [cobirders] Good afternoon at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County)
Hello cobirders;

Back from an enjoyable and successful birding trip to Baca & Las Animas Counties, Rebecca and I passed through Cherry Creek State Park on our way to dinner.

The Mew Gull was again and still on the little sandy beach at the Cherry Creek Reservoir dam trailhead, northwest of Pelican Bay.

I stopped by the Bird Platform Area, Prairie Loop to look for shorebirds. Killdeer were the only ones there.

Great stop however, four Caspian Terns stood on the mud flats east of creek.. An adult Nashville Warbler fluttered about the willow near the large rocks at the water's edge. A large group of birds on the shore to the east cannot be seen from the bird platform area. Probably some nice birds there?

Nothing uncommon was at Pelican Point; it was a nice welcome back to Denver..

XFinity put down a temporary above the ground cable yesterday afternoon. So we have internet access, however no landline or cell phone. They said it might be two weeks before they can find where the electric company cut the line. We at least can receive emails!

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] CoBus outages update
Hello cobirders,

A update on our doomsday neighborhood. To explain why September's
"Colorado Field Notes" is late.

We still have no internet, cell phone or landline. Xfinity did figure out
the Excel Energy cut the main trunk to our area. Everyone is in same
boat. Probably should not mention that security systems are down also, but
neighborhood has set up a constant watch until situation improves. For
those who do not know, I live above Richard and Rebecca's garage. So they
are in the same boat.

Positive news, I am making many friends with the McDonald's employees!
Whispering...their internet is really slow Beggers...choosers... etc

Amy

Subject: [cobirders] Wednesday at Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Thursday at Barr Lake State Park

Hello

 

On Wednesday I drove the Wildlife Tour at Rocky MountainArsenal in Adams County. I was there when they opened at sunrise.

 

Sparrows were numerous with hundreds to thousands of VesperSparrows along the drive.  There werealso two Brewer’s Sparrows, three Clay-colored Sparrows, one Grasshopper Sparrow,two Savannah Sparrows, and several flocks of Chipping Sparrows.

 

A Sage Thrasher was at the southeastern entrance to thebison enclosure.  It’s somewhere betweenmile 2-3.  There was only one WesternKingbird, two Eastern Kingbirds and one Loggerhead Shrike.  Two Rock Wrens were on fence posts. Severalflocks of female or immature Lark Buntings totaled 46 mostly along the northernroad miles 4-7.

 

The two flooded areas had Stilt Sandpiper, WesternSandpiper, Spotted Sandpiper, Wilson’sPhalaropes, Killdeer, Lesser Yellowlegs, Greater Yellowlegs, a SolitarySandpiper and one Least Sandpiper.

 

The best birds were two Mississippi Kites resting in thedead trees were the wildlife drive turns from north to west.  This is after the cement bridge crosses FirstCreek.  A Common Yellowthroat sang in thecattails on the east side of the bridge.

 

Today, Thursday I went to BarrLake State Park in Adams County.  Two ospreys were north of the maintrail.  I did not find most of thewarblers found yesterday. An American Redstart was northeast of the bandingstation.

 

The only Burrowing Owl found was along Gun Club Road south of 112th avenue.

Subject: [cobirders] Still no internet and delay in September's "Colorado Field Notes"
Hello cobirders,

We are without phones and internet for day three. I stopped at McDonalds
on the way to school to send RBA.

There will be a delay in sending out September's "Colorado Field Notes".
The downside of uploading to the cloud. We cannot access parts of
September's issue to finish putting together the book.

Later I hope

Hello cobirders,

Sorry for the late RBA this morning (Wednesday)

They are putting in new electric cables in our neighborhood. We have no
telephones or internet for the next 2-3 days. Even our cell phones are not
working? I had to go to McDonald's this morning to get emails and send RBA.

Will answer received emails as so as possible
Amy

Birders,
This is a hard one for me. I figure this is a juvenile, but is it a cooper’s hawk, a sharp-shinned hawk or maybe, maybe, a goshawk. I’ve stared at photos and illustrations of all three and I really have no idea. Any, and I do mean any, help will be appreciated.

Subject: [cobirders] Birds Around DIA, Denver and Adams Counties


Hello,
Birds around Denver Airport on Saturday.
A Turkey Vulture circling low at DIA parking lot off Monaghan Road
No Red-headed Woodpeckers at yesterday's location 104th avenue and Box Elder Creek.  A Nashville Warbler and five Yellow Warblers in willow on south side of 104th at Box Elder Creek
Continued west around 104th to Umpire to 96th avenue, a Cassin's Sparrow stood at top of a weed at 0.3 miles north of 96th avenue
At 96th avenue and Box Elder Creek I had one Red-headed Woodpecker
I hiked First Creek Trail, Denver CountyBullock's Oriole at drainage along west side of Light Rail trackstwo Western Kingbirds before Pena Blvdsa Western Wood-pewee halfway between west side of Pena Blvds to Buckley Roadan unidentified vireo in willows just east of Buckley Road bridge, saw body three times but did not see its head well
Best area was Adams County where First Creek trail turns northa Great Horned Owl on low ground branch east of turn
Looking for John Breitsch's Red-eyed Vireo, a beautiful reddish brown Winter Wren seen about 20 yards west of north turn.  Saw him three times for 5-10 seconds each time. No white streaks on back as of Marsh Wren or Sedge Wren.  He was very small, short tailed and dark reddish.   Throat was same reddish color as belly
turning back a flycatcher was fly catching from  the willows west of Creek and south of tan stucco structure.  I wanted to see if it was a Least Flycatcher.  It turned out to be a Western Wood-pewee
A large loose flock of birds in same willow tree included four Black-capped Chickadees, a pair of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, eight Yellow Warblers, two White-breasted Nuthatches and a Red-eyed Vireo
Good birding!
Dave KingDenver

Subject: [cobirders] Global Shorebird Counting 2018
Hello Fellow Birdwatchers,


I’d like to invite you to take part the Global Shorebird Counting Program of World Shorebirds Day to be held between 5–11 September 2018. This is a global initiative, and the shorebird equivalent of the ‘Global Big Day’ organised by eBird. All I ask from you to go out birding between these dates, what you love to do anyway, and share your data via eBird.


We now have a simple information sheet of the program in multiple languages. Please find it here:
https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com/2018/08/01/supporting-local-communication/ https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com/2018/08/01/supporting-local-communication/


Further information on Global Shorebird Counting can be found on our website:
https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com/globalshorebirdcounting/ https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com/globalshorebirdcounting/


I hope you take two minutes to register your site and we will soon see you among the contributors.


Best wishes, Szimi

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek Reservoir Area, Arapahoe County Mississippi Kite!
Hello cobirders;

It was 89 degrees at 4:00 pm in Aurora. Winds were 8-9 mph. Rebecca and I passed through Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) on our way to dinner. Wednesday night concerts limit access especially to the Pelican Bay marina.

We did not find the Caspian Tern. On the way out, we saw a Common Nighthawk cross Lake View Drive just south of Parker Road. A little brown bat flew across East Hampden Avenue into the Meadow Hills Subdivision.

I followed hoping to get a photo of the bat, which never happened. A better sighting was a Mississippi Kite flying and circling just above the treetops at the south end of Dawson Street. After 6-8 minutes it disappeared to the southeast.

Later I remembered that Greg Schrab had reported a Mississippi Kite at the entrance of Cherry Creek Reservoir (Parker Road & East Lehigh Avenue) on 7/13/2018. That would be less than 0.5 miles from today's sighting.

Whether the Mississippi Kite stayed in the area or another was migrating through, I do not know. The bird was a first county sighting for both of us!

I photos come out they will be posted in the CoBus photo library

Also in the subdivision were two Swainson's Hawks and two Sharp-shinned Hawks.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Hummingbirds in Adams Cty, Bohemian Waxwing in Elbert Cty
Hello cobirders,


This year has been superb for hummingbirds east of Barr Lake, Adams County. In past years we were lucky to see one or two the whole summer. July and August we have as many as eleven. Today I have seen females of Broad-tailed, Black-chinned, Calliope and Rufous Hummingbirds. The female Rufous Hummingbird chases the others away from one of our four feeders.


Special note: Angie Koehler is seeing Bohemian Waxwing and Cedar Waxwings in Elizabeth, Elbert County


Good birding!

 Hi Fellow Bird Watchers,

I had a Black-headed Grosbeak at my feeder this morning.  I can't tell
you if it was a female or a juvenile because it didn't stay long enough
for an ID.

I'm also enjoying several Hummingbirds who show up for some nectar.

Happy Birding!

Mary France

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek State Park in Arapahoe County
Hello birders,

Cherry Creek State Park search for gulls did not turn up the Mew Gull or
Western Gull. Many California Gulls of various ages including juvenile and
Ring-billed Gulls of various ages. Nine Great Blue Heron adults and two
juveniles spread around reservoir. No Tricolored Heron or Green Heron was
found. Only shorebird was one Lesser Yellowlegs at old bird platform area,
Prairie Loop. An Orange-crowned Warbler was only warbler found, also at
Prairie Loop. The lack of waterfowl is surprising.
