Subject: [cobirders] Parula at Cherry Creek Arapahoe Cty
Hello cobirders,

Richard Stevens left this telephone message:

We enjoyed a great last day to a superb seven day grouse trip. Mountain Plovers and Chestnut collared Longspurs this morning near the Pawnee National Grasslands.

As we stopped, the Northern Parula was on top of the wild Plum near the upper northeastern boat ramp at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County.

Consolation for missing the Corn Lake Brown Pelican by one day.

Good birding.

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!

Subject: [cobirders] Uneventful Trips to Barr Lake and Westerly Creek Park
Hello birders,

Walked around Barr Lake State Park in Adams County for several hours.
Nothing uncommon was found. An Orange crowned Warbler was the only
warbler. Dozens of House Wrens, Common Grackles and Robins seen. The
warbler was at the Pioneer Trailhead.

At one time, three Swainson's Hawks, one Red tailed Hawk, an Osprey and
adult Bald Eagle circled not far over my head.

The pair of Osprey have been back at the nest for a week or so now. Two
Barn Owls and two Long eared Owls relocated.

A pair of Burrowing Owls continue at Trussville Road and 114th avenue. A
couple more were at W. Cargo Road and Third Creek.


Then went by Westerly Creek Park in Denver County. I did not find the
Harris's Sparrow today. Someone raked the underbush where the sparrows
have spent several weeks. A dozen White crowned Sparrows were between 2345
& 2355 Beeler. Last trip the Harris's Sparrow was with them. It did not
come out of the bushes during the hour I watched.

Subject: [cobirders] More New Arrivals in Estes Park, Larimer Co.,
Enjoying more first arrivals in the Estes Park, we walked late afternoon at Lake Estes and were awarded with an American Avocet, three pairs of Cinnamon Teal, a female Bufflehead, a Killdeer, and a Western Meadowlark, all firsts in eBird for the Estes Park area for this year but right on time based on prior-year reports in eBird. One Willet was still present as well along with some American Pipits along the shore. Met two friendly local birders at the lake. It's always a pleasure connecting with folks who share our interest.


This morning on my regular morning walk, I found two Horned Larks, right on time but not yet reported in eBird for the Estes Park area this year.


Everyday brings surprises.


Jim Nelson

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 25, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's

Subject: [cobirders] Harris's Sparrow Continues/Weld
Hi all

While birding northcentral Weld at Lone Tree Creek crossing at Weld CR 110 I "accidentally" photoed the Harris's Sparrow again. I was trying to photo other sparrows and saw one at edge of Willows (I think) so I snapped a photo to review later in car. Turns out the immature Harris's Sparrow I had here about month ago remains. Looks like same bird. Also, he flew to back of riparian area and started to sing crazily again like last time.

Birds seen:
Willet - 4 [Crom Lake, Pierce, Weld] Marbled Godwit - 4 [Crom Lake, Pierce, Weld] "Peeps" - 13 [Crom Lake, Pierce, Weld] -- still have to review photos looked to be Least and Western
Harris's, Chipping, White-crowned, and Clay-colored Sparrow [Lone Tree Creek at Weld CR 110, Nunn, Weld] Great-tailed Grackle - 4 [Woods Lake, Severance, Weld] Black-crowned Night Heron - 9 (they seem to be returning after mysterious disappearance five years ago) [Glenmere Park, Greeley, Weld] Black-necked Stilt [Stewart's Pond/Marsh, La Salle, Weld] 34 species along Poudre River Trail (Island Grove to 23rd Ave) New: House Wren, Yellow Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Cliff Swallow Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 24, 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!

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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] Birding along the Foothills, Jefferson County
Hello birders,

Concentrating along the foothills today, I had some hots and misses.

Eastern Phoebes were at kingfisher Bridge and Plum Creek Delta, Chatfield State Park. One Marbled Godwit was at the marina.

No Broad-winged Hawk found at Mt Glennon.

A Burrowing Owl was at Robert Easton Park.

A Plumbeous Vireo was along the creek in the park north of Red Rocks. I think the name was Mathews Park?

A Spotted Towhee was across from the Red Rocks trading post.

Good birding!

Dave King
Denver

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 23, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] Arapahoe and Elbert Counties
Hello birders,

I drove around southeastern Arapahoe County and into northwestern Elbert. On the way, I stopped and watched the Black Swan at Blackstone County Club. I hoped to find a Western or Cassin's Kingbird, Northern Mockingbird or any early migrating bird.

Along County Line road, Loggerhead Shrike were found in both Arapahoe & Elbert Counties. Two Grasshopper Sparrows were along CR 129. A Sage Thrasher was north of CR 129 and Orchard.

The Burrowing Owl has not yet returned to CR 30/east/CR 149 where it was last summer. I swung around to CR 42 where Cassin's Kingbirds and a Northern Mockingbird were last summer. No kingbirds or mockingbirds found today.

Last year's playas were dry today.

The most successful drive was the Jewell-Yale Loop. Two Grasshopper Sparrows, half a dozen Brewer's Sparrows, one Clay-colored Sparrow were along the Jewell leg. Highlight of the day was a Long-billed Curlew along Yale (some maps call the diagonal between Jewell & Yale--Smith Road). The curlew was west of Smith Road at 30 yards north of the only cattle guard.

Another Brewer's Sparrow and Grasshopper Sparrow and many Western Meadowlarks, two American Kestrels and a Prairie Falcon were along the Yale leg of the loop.

Good birding!

Hello Birders,

Two Burrowing Owls along the Rocky Mt Arsenal wildlife drive. A Spotted Sandpiper at Lake Ladora.

We looked for the Harris's Sparrow at Westerly Creek and noticed White crowned Sparrows flying across the street from the pond. Twenty two White crowned and the Harris's flew to the tree between 2345 and 2355 Beeler Street. They kept flying into the back yard. Maybe there's a feeder back there.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 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!

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.!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 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: With the many reports coming in daily this spring, RBA will reflect
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] Barr Lake (Adams) & Westerly Creek Park (Denver)
Hello cobirders;


I also did not find the reported Red-shouldered Hawk at Barr Lake (Adams County). I walked from the boat ramp to a mile west of the Visitor's Center footbridge.

A minor migration of birds had occurred since my visit on Monday, 4/18. Hundreds of sparrows fluttered about along the edges of the riparian area. My sparrow count was represented by Savannah (2), Brewer's (2), Clay-colored (1), Lincoln's (2), White-crowned (dozens) and Song (at least 4).

The pair of Osprey was again on the nesting platform at mile 8.6. Barn Owls continued along the trek. A Swainson's Hawk and Northern Harrier were my only hawks.

My choice to drive down to the State Capitol on business was not a good one. The traffic was a mess due to the 4-20 mess.

On the trip home, I stopped at Westerly Creek Park (Denver). My migrants were around this afternoon. Added to my Park list were one Chipping Sparrow, one Green-tailed Towhee, one Spotted Towhee, two Ruby-crowned Kinglets, a dozen American Goldfinches, two Brewer's Sparrows and a Lincoln's Sparrow. All of these birds visited the water at the retention pond east of 23rd Street.

Half a dozen White-crowned Sparrows walked underneath the flowering tree south of the retention pond. The Harris's Sparrow was not found. However, my stay was only a little over an hour and centered on the retention pond and bushy area to the south. The Harris's Sparrow may still be around.

Three Burrowing Owls were again staying around the prairie dog town at West Cargo Road and Third Creek. When it started to rain, I decided to leave and not stay around until sunset to look for Short-eared Owls.


Continued Good Birding!

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

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 19, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Birders!
I shot these photos today (1/18/17) at Simpson Ponds, CR 9E, 1/2 mile north of Hwy 402 (Larimer County). I believe this is a female yellow-rumped warbler. I would like to know if I got it right. I apologize for the poor quality of the photos - the lighting sucked!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 18, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] Trip Around Southeastern Arapahoe County
Hello cobirders,


Sue Ehlmann, Amy Davenport and I followed a new route from Parker today. We passed by Blackstone Country Club and took some photos of the Black Swan.

Then we drove east on County Line Road to County Road 129. Along the way, we saw a Burrowing Owl just east of Antelope Drive and a male Lark Bunting just west of CR 129. Both birds were north of County Line Road and therefore in Arapahoe County. Two Vesper Sparrows were south of the road in Elbert County.

We turned north on Arapahoe CR 129 and drove to CR 30 which is also called Quincy Avenue. A female Lark Bunting was near East Geddes Avenue.

A Loggerhead Shrike was photographed at CR 129 and East Orchard Road. This area is the curve in CR 129 where Dickcissels were found last summer. It is a little too early for them yet this spring.

About 0.1 miles south of CR 30, a Grasshopper Sparrow, maybe two was on the fence on the east side of CR 129.

Once we turned west on CR 30, two Prairie Falcons were seen on the telephone poles. Farther west an adult Ferruginous Hawk also used a telephone pole.

At South Watkins Road (CR 97), we turned north. A Red-tailed Hawk was near this intersection. At East Yale Avenue, we picked up the eastern end of the Jewell-Yale Loop and continued westward.

At the northwest bend in Yale Avenue, (some maps call the road Smith Road here), we continued north to East Jewell Avenue. A Bald Eagle was perched in one of the tall cottonwoods along Creek.

At Jewell our birding ended and we drove west back to Denver. Along our way, we stopped numerous times and scoped the fields for Long-billed Curlews and Longspurs. Neither was found. Another Loggerhead Shrike was along Yale Avenue at 0.3 miles south of Jewell Avenue.

We expect the route to offer many birds in the weeks to come.


Good birding!

Hello Birders,

We looked unsuccessfully for the Long billed Curlew at Rocky Mt Arsenal. An Eastern Phoebe and three Burrowing Owls were seen. The Harris's Sparrow was at the choke cherry or is it wild plum tree at Westerly Creek.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Mountain Plover Returning [Keota, Weld]
Hi all

The group I led on my Pawnee National Grasslands Birding trip on Saturday were treated to four Mountain Plover at the now most reliable location for Mountain Plover in Weld County (and has been last 3-4 years). This place had 7 on one day last year for me. The location is the giant prairie dog colony just west of Hwy 390 and Weld CR 100 intersection. Weld CR 100 is just north of Keota. Drive west about one mile the dog colony is on south and is expansive. We had three plover just off the road in fine view for photographers. Group got see to see male defend his female a few times chasing the second male numerous times whilst the female lay on the ground watching intently.

Overall 47 species seen in and around Pawnee NG to include:
Mountain Plover - 4 McCown's Longspur - 6-8 along Weld CR 96 Burrowing Owl - 4 (same dog colony as above; and one at Weld CR 33 btw 98/100)
Vesper Sparrow - numerous Loggerhead Shrike - 4+ Many ducks Sharp-shinned Hawk - 1 (Crow Valley Campground) Brown-headed Cowbird - 1 Sunday, Stewart's Pond has 13 "peeps", I believe all Least Sandpiper-still got to look at photos closely though.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 17, 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

Subject: [cobirders] Sunday Afternoon at Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Adams County
Hello cobirders,


Sue Ehlmann, Amy Davenport and I in the late afternoon drove the Wildlife Drive at Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Adams County.

The afternoon was uneventful. Three Say's Phoebes were found in the riparian areas. A highlight was a Long-billed Curlew just inside the Wildlife Drive. The Long-billed Curlew was walking in the short green grassy field east of the road and just north of mile 3.

A Marsh Wren came out of the cattails near the bridge just north of the Long-billed Curlew field. As it sang, a Ranger drove by and cued us that it was not legal to get out of our vehicle.

The drive was marked by the absent of any large raptors. Two Burrowing Owls were at mile 7. Another Burrowing Owl was at the corner of Havana Street and 88th Avenue.

Our Western Meadowlark count was only six during the eight-mile drive. Few ducks swam on Lake Ladora and Lower Derby Lake.

Later we saw three Burrowing Owls at W. Cargo Road at Third Creek. The area is well outside of the Arsenal. No Short-eared Owls were found and seem scarce this spring.


Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Black Swan in Arapahoe County
Hello,

A text message about a Black Swan got me to go to Blackstone County Club. The Swan was on the pond at the tenth hole.

Take Smoky Hill Road east, pass Powhaton Road, at Country Club Road go south, turn left on Blackstone, pond is west at Kettle.

Sorry I do not know name of birder who found it. No one at Club knew origin of swan. It does not belong to club.

Good birding!

Dave King

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 15, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 14, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] 74+ Barrow's Goldeneyes Spring Park Resr, El Jebel, Eagle County
Hi Folks

A quick visit this evening to Spring Park reservoir did not produce any shorebirds, gulls, or exceptional sightings
However, it was gratifying to see at least 74 Barrows Goldeneyes, I was unable to count the whole reservoir, and it is likely that I missed several or many individuals

The count reaffirms the importance of this reservoir as a Spring staging area for this species.

Best wishes

I spent most of today driving around RMNP looking for something to photograph. Nothing. On the way home I stopped at McIntosh Lake/Dawson Park in Longmont. A flock of about 15 cedar waxwings flew into a tree right in front of me. Here’s a sample of the several photos I took. More can be seen here: Cedar Waxwings <https://www.flickr.com/photos/18276798@N07/albums/72157679339875313>

Hello,
John and I went to Barr Lake State Park Thursday morning.  We didn't find the Long-eared Owls but did find a Barn Owl, Swainson's Hawk, Spotted Towhees and Spotted Sandpipers.  Three Burrowing Owls were at the W. Cargo Road and Third Creek prairie dog town.

Yesterday, we past by Westerly Creek Park after shopping at North Field.  The Harris's Sparrow was with half a dozen White crowned Sparrows under the flowering Bush south of the retention pond east of 23rd Beeler.  A Say's Phoebe called east of 26th Beeler.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 13, 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

Subject: [cobirders] Red-throated Loon Kiowa County, Monday April 11
Hi Folks

Seems my post from the road failed to make it for some reason, so now we are home, here goes again

Denise and I had a basic-plumaged RED-THROATED LOON at Upper Queens (Neeskah) reservoir on Monday. Watched for 30minutes or so from the south shore, it gave good scope views. We looked again for it Tuesday without success.

Other birds of interest present in that area on Monday were: 7 Long-billed Curlews just north of Neenoshe on east side of 287, a Semipalmated Sandpiper at the SE corner of Neenoshe, along with several Bairds Sandpipers, American Avocets, Black-n.Stilts, 26.Long-b.Dowitchers, 2.Marbled Godwits, 3.Greater and 3.Lesser Yellowlegs. Upper Queens hosted ca10 Bonapartes Gulls as well as a 2nd cycle Lesser Black-backed, 2.Franklins Gull, 40.Ring-billed Gulls, as well as 12.Horned Grebes, and a few Eared Grebes

Good birding all

Best wishes

Subject: [cobirders] First Creek Trail, Denver County
Hello birders,

While we ealked the First Creek trail a pair of Cinnamon and Blue winged Teal were seen swimming in the creek north of the horse stables. The Barn Owls were not found.

Since two Barn Owls have been seen maybe someone should put up an owl box on the north side of the creek where people cannot walk?

Maybe the owls hunt at night for rodents around the stables?

Good birding!

I managed to get a nice photo of an eastern bluebird on SW 28 St., about 1/4 miles west of Taft Ave. in SW Loveland this morning. You can see the photo here: Bluebird <https://www.flickr.com/photos/18276798@N07/33186228553/in/photostream/>
It was on a tree just south of the road.

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.!

Hello birders,

While I could not confirm a Winter Wren at Cherry Creek State Park, a small bird did move around the spot at Cottonwood Creek where Rich reported it yesterday. It would not come out of the willows.

I did find the Swamp Sparrow just south of the cottonwood tree w/nest.

Subject: [cobirders] Birding Around Denver & Adams Counties
Hello cobirders;

Temperature reached 68 degrees. Winds were measured at 9-10 mph with gusts to 22 mph.

I went searching for the Northern Mockingbird at Westerly Creek Park this morning. It was not found; however, the Harris's Sparrow was again around the retention area east of 23rd and Beeler.

A drive through the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams) found the Eastern Phoebe and two Burrowing Owls (Wildlife Drive).

I again missed the Barn Owl(s) reported along the First Creek Trail (Denver).

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 11, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

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

After riding in a car last week for 2160 miles, I needed a long walk today. I chose Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) and walked from the Cottonwood Creek wetlands restroom parking area to the Mountain Loop and back.

Target bird, the Eastern Bluebirds reported a few days ago were not found. No Western Kingbirds or American Tree Sparrows were found either.

Highlights came during the walk from the Prairie Loop parking area along Cottonwood Creek back to the wetlands pond.

First a Swamp Sparrow was found twenty feet south of the cottonwood tree with the nest in it (south of the paved path with now closed sign, footbridge has been washed out for months).

Continuing south, a Stub-tailed Wren popped out of the brush. The location was halfway between the end of the strip of willows south of above paved path and the footbridge along the cement bike path. It was just south of the skinny 10 foot tree.

I first played a Pacific Wren recording and received no response. Then I waited five minutes and played a Winter Wren recording. The Winter Wren popped out of the willows from the third time.

After the long walk, I drove to the eastern boat ramp upper parking area to rest. There was motion under the bushes southeast of the restroom as I stopped the car.

When I observed the Fox Sparrow days ago, the same thing occurred. Motion was spotted and after an hour, the Fox Sparrow emerged from under the bushes. After about 10 minutes, a male Ring-necked Pheasant came out. No Fox Sparrow was appeared during my hour stay.

Continued Good Birding!

Hi all

Got a bird report from one of our (U. S. Forest Service) botanists (who is an avid birder): "I don’t have a camera good enough for pics of birds that aren’t dots in the distance, but possibly of marginal interest this weekend was the two (maybe three) Black-throated Sparrows about 8 miles southeast of La Junta on the extreme northeast corner of the Comanche NG. These were the first I’ve seen that weren’t in the deep canyons of the Purgatoire River or near the Oklahoma border. Steve O. Forest Botanist"

But no sign of the Pinyon Jays that are erratic in visiting currently

Its such a shame how this lake, formerly a wildlife mecca, is but a mere shadow of its former glory

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 9, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 8, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Hello,

The Fox Sparrow was a no show during the hour I stood and watched the bushes at Cherry Creek State Park tonight.

Two American Avocets walked Pelican Point. A couple of Tree Sparrow were north of where Cherry Creek enters the reservoir.

Good birding!

Hello birders,

Birding today was better than yesterday. Yesterday I looked for the Vermilion flycatcher at Iliff and Rifle for two hours. Then I took an early dinner and sat at the Fox Sparrow spot at Cherry Creek State Park for two hours. Neither bird was seen.

Today I found the Harris's Sparrow with nine White crowned south of the Westerly Creek retention pond east of 23rd Street. The flock stayed mostly in the thick bushes at the end of chain link fence. Occasionally they fed on the ground east of the fence.

Burrowing Owls were found along the Rocky Mountain Arsenal wildlife drive. No Broad winged Hawks were seen.

Missed Barn Owls along the First Creek trail.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 7, 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!

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

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 6, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!

Hello Birders,

The Fox Sparrow is still at Cherry Creek State Park. After an hour waiting it emerged from the bushes near the east marina upper parking lot.

One Baird's Sandpiper and two Killdeer walked along Pelican Point.

No Sage Thrashers or Sagebrush Sparrow was found. An Osprey and one Turkey Vulture flew by.

A Lincoln's Sparrow was at Lake Loop. No Western Kingbird seen.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 5, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's

Subject: [cobirders] Fox Sparrow Still at Cherry Creek Reservoir, Arapahoe County
Hello cobirders;

After a miserable night on Cameron Pass and Jackson County due to inclement weather, we decided to return to Denver.

We drove over to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) and parked near the east boat ramp upper parking area restroom. The car was used as a bird blind.

The Fox Sparrow came out of the thick bushes near the parking area within ten minutes. He worked his away out of the green grass east of the bushes and walked the wet dirt trail.

Unfortunately, ten minutes later a person parked next to us and let his dog out. The dog sniffed the same area that the Fox Sparrow was searching for food. The Fox Sparrow then went back deep into the bushes.

Nothing else uncommon was found. American White Pelicans and Double-crested Cormorants were the majority birds on the lake. Two Say's Phoebes were hawking bugs at the Lake Loop.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for April 4, 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!

Subject: [cobirders] An hour at Cherry Creek Reservoir
Hello cobirders;


Stayed home most of Sunday preparing for another grouse trip. Rebecca and I drove to dinner near Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe). We were not going to stay as long as I did yesterday.

When we exited our SUV at the east boat ramp upper parking area, I though I heard a Fox Sparrow calling from the willows downhill. Brushed it off as bad hearing, we circled the bushes southeast of the restroom (yesterday's location).

Sunday, many people walked up and down the path where I photographed the Fox Sparrow yesterday. There never was a five minute lull in the foot traffic.

Finding no sparrow from 6:15 pm to 6:35 pm, we were about to leave. A familiar bird song was coming from the hillside to the north.

Just to make sure it was a Sage Thrasher we heard I climbed up the hill. Not only one but two Sage Thrashers were singing from the tops of Rabbit Brush.

While trying to get a photo of either Sage Thrasher, a sparrow runs below and between two Rabbit Brushes. I managed to get a witness photograph the Sagebrush Sparrow and Sage Thrasher! The three birds stayed in the small area of Rabbit Brush as we left.

Perhaps it was a Sagebrush Sparrow that I observing flying around the model airplane field last Friday?

Back at the bushes near the restroom at 6:55 pm, I circled it one last time before leaving. The Fox Sparrow was perched on the east side of the small "grove". Eventually he did fly down to the willows at a forty five degree angle southeast of said "grove" Perhaps I did hear him earlier? Got a couple of witness shots, nothing was as good as yesterdays (posted on Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library).

Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders,

I couldn't find the Denver City Park yellow bellied Sapsucker today.

Subject: [cobirders] Birding Around Denver, First of April, 2017
Hello cobirders;


April 1, 2017

It was a great first day of April. Plans to search for White-tailed Ptarmigan on Loveland Pass had to be canceled when the pass was closed due to last night's snowstorm.

Instead, I drove around Denver and Aurora. Temperature only reached 39 degrees today. Winds were 4 mph with gusts to 8 mph. Rain of various speeds fell most of the afternoon.

I detoured to Westerly Creek Park (Denver County) in spite of the Harris's Sparrow not having been reported since 3/19. First, I checked the open space and park near 25th street & Beeler.

The Harris's Sparrow was not found; however, a Swamp Sparrow popped up from the cattails just south of the retention area east of Beeler.

Two American Tree Sparrows were 50 yards to the south. It is getting late for them. Every spring it appears that once they start to migrate it is difficult finding them anywhere in the state.

I continued south to the retention area east of 2365 Beeler Street. A flock of twenty-two White-crowned Sparrows flew from the bushy grove just south of the wet area and wandered along the ground.

Another bird that stayed under the bushes was difficult to see. Eventually it did emerge; it was the Harris's Sparrow.

My next stop was Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe), the target the Fox Sparrow reported yesterday. I circled the bushes southeast of the restroom at the boat ramp upper parking area. Finding no sparrows, I continued down to Pelican Point.

Unfortunately, no shorebirds were along the shore. Three Say's Phoebes and half a dozen robins wandered along the shore. While walking to the swim beach, many robins and another nine Say's Phoebes were observed grabbing bugs.

When I returned to the bushes next to the restroom, I noticed movement from a sparrow like bird. In the next 2 hours and 10 minutes, I would get a sense of movement. However, the bird never allowed much of a view; I could not even determine its colors.

The drizzle was quite fast in the next 2 hours that I stood watching the bushes. Finally, the Fox Sparrow popped out and looked around from one of the branches!

I exited the park by way of the Lake Loop and Prairie Loop. A lone Rusty Blackbird walked the shore at the west side of the Lake Loop.

Besides American White Pelicans, many Horned Grebe swam around the lake this afternoon. No uncommon gulls were found. Two Barn Swallows hawked bugs over the lake.

One Burrowing Owl was out at West Cargo Road & Third Creek when the rain stopped along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams). No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening.

I visit the DIA Owl Loop almost everyday that I am in town; do not seem to have the same problems with police and rent-a-cops as others are having. About every other trip, I have been seeing three or four kids with AK 7s shooting along the north side of Third Creek. Someone should do something about them.

Photos of the Fox Sparrow and Harris's Sparrow have been put on the Colorado Birding Society's photo library:

Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders,

Richard Stevens is having a good day in the Denver area. He is currently photographing the red Fox Sparrow at Cherry Creek State Park. It is in and out of the bushy grove southeast of the restroom at the upper parking lot for the northeastern boat ramp.

He found a Rusty Blackbird along the shore west of the Lake Loop.

No Sagebrush Sparrow relocated.

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek Reservoir & Rocky Mountain Arsenal
Hello cobirders;


We had to go to Aurora, CO today for traffic court (I was framed!), got some birding in afterwards.

Few birds moved around Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe), although, Black-billed Magpies were in high numbers.

I try not to report unidentified birds, however. We observed a bird fly from the model airplane field to the surrounding high grasses that appeared to be a Sagebrush Sparrow. The bird was not relocated in the following 45 minutes. We do not have time to return tomorrow; perhaps someone else will find it?

Reminder: Many of the Sagebrush Sparrows found at Chatfield Reservoir (Jefferson/Douglas) are seen after a spring snowstorm. The storm is rolling in here at midnight. Regrettably, we will not have time to get down there Saturday.

A Common Loon in sharp looking breeding plumage was on Lower Derby Lake in the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams County). The majority bird was Northern Shovelers with a few Lesser Scaup and two Double-crested Cormorants.

Two Lesser Black-backed Gulls were among sixty+ Ring-billed, two California and one Herring Gulls.

Sometime after last Sunday, they did a controlled burn at Lake Ladora. The lake had to be drained first but is refilling now. I forgot to ask the ranger how deep the two lakes are. They cannot be very deep; fisherperson's walk far off shore at Lake Ladora.

We drove the new wildlife self-driving tour. Burrowing Owls were found in two locations: just south of the turn onto 88th avenue (north of mile 5.0) and near the intersection of Havana & 88th avenue (mile 7.0).

Fifty or so Bison were resting on the road at 72nd avenue & Yosemite Street. They are massive impressive animals!

Continued enjoyment of nature and birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for March 31, 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!

Subject: [cobirders] FYI: Timnath Reservoir (Park) Closed [Larimer]
Hi all

Some may already know this so ignore.

I thought I'd visit Timnath on my lunch break only to find road closed to park on south. It is closed until 3/31 according to this link: http://timnath.org/updates/ access-timnath-reservoir- closed-320-331/ http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Ftimnath.org%2Fupdates%2Faccess-timnath-reservoir-closed-320-331%2F&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNFnTe0ELPDepzGHt4zR62e92iVhaQ. Also, for what it is worth, while browsing their town website (FYI here) according to this URL (http://timnath.org/wp- content/uploads/2014/03/ Timnath-Reservoir-Policy-Only- Update-8-17-2016_MG.pdf http://timnath.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Timnath-Reservoir-Policy-Only-Update-8-17-2016_MG.pdf) Timnath Reservoir is:

INTENT
The Town leases Timnath Reservoir for the enjoyment of Timnath residents. The purpose of this policy is to outline the rules for Timnath Reservoir’s use.

POLICY
I. For Timnath Residents – At this time, Timnath Reservoir will be restricted to the use and enjoyment for Timnath Residents and their guests.


The NE corner of Timnath has more residential dwelling going up on north shore, noticed a nice new road going in along north shore as well as what looks to be a cement hiking path meandering through the marsh up there towards house where birders typically walk down to shoreline when reservoir drying up.

I have yet to see enforcement for above ...

Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for March 28, 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
daily sightings, not long term sightings, visit Colorado Birding Society's
website everyday!
