Subject: [cobirders] Tundra Swan [Weld]
Hi all


The three Tundra Swan were still present at Cozzens Lake in Eaton on Saturday. Also, Sunday, three of the four playas along Weld CR 53 entertained many Lesser Scaup, Common Merganser, Ring-billed Gull and Killdeer--"excellent habitat for any migrating shorebirds". Also, had Mountain Bluebird and Prairie Falcon here. I saw (Sunday) the Weld CR 61 flock of Turkeys again this time about 72 of them together crossing road at South Platte River behind the giant feedlot--assume they are feeding there. The smaller Cozzens Lake flock (saturday) was on east side of reservoir Saturday numbering about 30+. Two of Greeley's five Mute Swans at F St ponds (2 Mutes at Linn Grove Cemetery (can't fly); there is 1 swan who hangs out by himself at gravel pit across from Linn Grove on north (as well as Arrowhead Lake); the 2 at F Street seem to meander to the various gravel pits together.

Subject: [cobirders] Neotropic beta
Ran into a wonderful birder named Steve after seeing the Loon yesterday. We decided to team up in search of the Neo. Cormorant. We first parked at Valente Open space and walked the backside of the two "lakes" south of 104th along the bike paths that follow the S. Platte until we hit the Platte and could continue no further south. Good but long scope views of Cormorants along the two small "spits" on the northern edges of both lakes.
I had earlier driven to the small pond that is south of the physical water treatment plant and seen cormorants in that small pond which is at McKay & 96th. On our walk we were also constantly seeing cormorants fly to and from that pond area. So after walking back to the cars we drove to that pond and parked on the side. There were perhaps 10-12 Cormorants standing on the southeastern bank and some swimming.
There was one that immediately caught our eye because of size first. Through the scope and with good proximity as it's a small pond we could see the bird was smaller and less robust in the neck and chest and had it's back to us so we could also see the slightly longer tail. It did turn and give is good looks at the beak and lore area. It is also more chocolate in the breast and neck and we had a juvenile DC Cormorant next to it with a pale chest for good comparison. Ot sat long enough for us to even consult my Sibleys to compste facial and beak differences.
It flew off and we were told by birders who saw it very close yesterday that is had some scraggly or missing primaries or secondaries so scanning those flying Cormorants might help. I could see in flight it was more brown in color than the DC Cormorants it flew with that were black. We hopped in the car and drove north to the lake that sits near McKay and 100th where it was reported earlier that morning. It was standing with 4 others cormorants on the small spit on the northern side of the lake. Upon inspection, though the scope views were longer than the other pond we could see the size and color difference. We were joined by about 10 other birders who all concurred that it was in fact the same bird Steve and I had just seen closer at the smaller pond.
For any looking today, I hope the info helps and happy birding.

Subject: [cobirders] Weld & Arapahoe Counties on Wednesday
Hello cobirders;

Terry Michaels tried to find Mountain Plovers in the Pawnee National Grasslands area (Weld) today.

We passed Cozzens Lake on the drive up. The three Tundra Swans were still there.

Many of the traditional locations were searched and no Mountain Plover was found.

Seven Sharp-tailed Grouse were observed along Weld CR 111, north of CR 132. This area appears to be the best location for a sighting.

A few McCown's Longspurs were run across. No Chestnut-collared Longspur was among them.

After dropping Terry off, I stopped by Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) on my way to visit a sick friend at nearby Aurora Life Care Center.

A male Red-winged Blackbird chased the female Rusty Blackbird from the north shore of Augie's Pond (northwest of the swim beach).

I believe I observed the Red-necked Grebe reported several days ago. It dove often and only stayed on the surface for short periods of time. I scoped the Lake from the Dixon Grove parking area.

Later I relocated the grebe while scoping from the Lake Loop. The angle of the sun was better from the Lake Loop. Highlights from the Lake Loop included a nice assortment of gulls. Among them were a Glaucous Gull, two Iceland Gulls (one Iceland & one Thayer's), Herring Gulls, California Gulls and of course many Ring-billed Gulls.

A search for an early Western Kingbird or any Kingbird was not successful. My time ran out before an owl search could commence.

Continued Good Birding!

Hello, Birders!

Subject: [cobirders] Arapahoe County Northern Mockingbird
Hello cobirders,

Question about Arapahoe County Northern Mockingbird:

Take Arapahoe Road west to Uinta Street, then south to Walnut Hill Park and tennis courts. Walk east along Little Dry Creek trail and look at yard just west of the Harley Davidson trailer, north side of creek. Then continue east to yard with a blue gate, south side of creek. See recent witness photos on website

I think Rebecca's spell check changed street name from Uinta to Hints?

Subject: [cobirders] Rocky Mountain Arsenal, First Creek Trail & DIA Owl Loop on Sunday
Hello cobirders;

I did not make it as far west of 89th avenue Lake, but was close. The Red-throated Loon was not found yesterday by me so skipped the lake today.

Instead, I went to Rocky Mountain Arsenal. Scoped Lake Ladora for over an hour, I could not find a Surf Scoter among the dozens of female Redhead Ducks and Ruddy Ducks. The adult Lesser Black-backed Gull was along the eastern side.

There may have been one Greater Scaup on Lake Ladora. The male was diving constantly which makes identification difficult. Bill and nail width appeared intermediate between Lesser and Greater?

A check of Lower Derby Lake found no uncommon birds. Missed my target birds during a drive around the Wildlife Loop, no Burrowing Owls, Red-headed Woodpeckers or Eastern Phoebes were found today.

Later I walked the First Creek Trail from the Light Rail Tracks to the 56th avenue Bridge. There was no sign of the Rusty Blackbirds for the second day in a row. Perhaps they moved on during last week's blizzard?

No Short-eared Owls or Burrowing Owls were found along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver) this evening.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] 89th Ave Pond, Adams County
Hello birders,

I searched the 89th avenue pond for the Red-throated Loon, not there.  I heard rumors that it was seen near McKay Road and 104th but did not have time to check it out.  The male Barrow's Goldeneye was still on the 89th pond.

Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Afternoon in Adams, Denver and Arapahoe Counties
Hello cobirders;

We enjoyed a successful first grouse trip of 2019 missing few birds and the horrific weather that hit Denver and the Eastern Plains. Only target bird misses were Northern Bobwhite and Scaled Quail. See Colorado Birding Society's trip blog tomorrow for details.

After dropping a friend at DIA, I went back to Adams County and the South Platte Birding Area.

The pair of Barrow's Goldeneyes was just upstream of the green/white tower (approximately 1/2 mile south of the 88th avenue parking area).

Another birder and I scanned the 89th Avenue Pond for 30 minutes or so. No loons were found. A male Barrow's Goldeneye hung around a group of Common Goldeneyes.

I checked East Gravel Lakes, Dahlia Ponds and Tani Reservoir and found no loons.

A walk along the First Creek Trail (Denver) did not find the Rusty Blackbirds and Barn Owl this afternoon.

The female Rusty Blackbird continues at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe). She was along the eastern drainage that runs into Angie's Pond (northwest of the swim beach). The bird was 25 feet south of the paved path.

No owls showed up for me along the shooting range entrance road.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Fantastic Raptor Alley Results and Spring Migrants! [Weld]


Hi all


Super day on Raptor Alley in people, birds and weather! I led a private Boulder "raptoring" group to explore Raptor Alley hoping to show them birds they can obviously see in Boulder but up here they are more "mass quantity". Had some great shows, too, Dark morph Ferruginous Hawk, Red-taileds aerial courting, Ferruginous aerialing courting, Prairie Falcons riding winds just above our heads, eagle and owls on nest. Show stealer was the unexpected Sandhill Cranes!



We saw 52 total raptors (photos http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/profile/admin/action_id/1021):
American Kestrel - 9 Red-tailed Hawk - 20 Ferruginous Hawk - 7 Prairie Falcon - 3 Rough-legged Hawk - 1 Golden Eagle - 2 Bald Eagle - 3 (one on active Nunn nest (4 years now))
Northern Harrier - 5 Great Horned Owl - 2 (both on active nests) Spring migrants:
Sandhill Crane - 3 Mountain Bluebird - 25+ Redhead Northern Pintail Ring-necked Duck This morning the usual Wellington SWA resting spot for Sandhill Cranes had their first visitors, 53 cranes http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/profile/admin/action_id/1022!

Subject: [cobirders] Little Dry Creek Northern Mockingbird, Arapahoe County
Hello cobirders;

High Temperature today was 52 degrees. The winds made it free quite cold at 14-15 mph with gusts to 25 mph.

I headed southwest today. The Black Scoter that has been wintering on South Platte Park Reservoir (Arapahoe/Jefferson) was not found.

The Harris's Sparrow continues at South Platte Park (Arapahoe).

I received a text message about a Northern Mockingbird along Little Dry Creek and stopped on my way home. Text stated the bird was along Walnut Hills trail, which was interpreted to mean the spur off Little Dry Creek trail, west side of Walnut Hills Elementary School.

I walked the spur and Little Dry Creek trail from South Uinta Street west to South Quebec, no Northern Mockingbird.

It was too nice a day to go home; I hiked east to Walnut Hills Park and continued to South Yosemite Street, no Northern Mockingbird.

On the returned to Uinta Street, I checked the two yards, which I had picked as good places for a Northern Mockingbird. Out of nowhere, the Northern Mockingbird flew into a willow bush along the chain link fence just west of the Harley Davidson trailer.

Unfortunately, the Northern Mockingbird stayed deep in the bush or on the ground behind the fence. While I waited for a better view and dog walker came by and asked what was so interesting. Her dog started barking and the Northern Mockingbird flew south across Little Dry Creek to the yard with the blue gate on its chain link fence.

It is a beautiful bird even it flight! I put terrible witness photos on the "recent witness photos" link of the Colorado Birding Society's website

I passed through Cherry Creek State Park on my drive home. No interesting birds, but I did take photos of the white deer near the intersection of Lake View Road and old Parker Road. Did I hear on the news that there was another "white deer" or was it the Cherry Creek Reservoir deer? Anyway, quite a surprise!

No Short-eared or Burrowing Owls appeared along the DIA Owl Loop again this evening.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] South Platte Birding Area, First Creek Trail & Rocky Mountain Arsenal
Hello cobirders;

I celebrated the fantastic winter day with a hike from the South Platte Birding Area parking area at 88th avenue (Adams County) south to the sewage treatment plant south of I76 and back.

My route was down the west side of the S. Platte River with a return on the east side. From 2002 to 2018 except 2014 & 2017, a Long-tailed Duck has wintered in the area. None was found today (last seen on 11/10/2018).

The pair of Barrow's Goldeneyes was diving in the Platte below the green/white tower about 1/2 mile south of the 88th avenue parking area.

Passerines were few. The highlight was a Swamp Sparrow on the east side of the Platte River about 50 yards north of the two green benches on the west side of the Platte.

Shorebirds were represented by four Killdeer and a Spotted Sandpiper.

On the drive over, I made several stops. The three Rusty Blackbirds were still along First Creek just south of the 56th Avenue Bridge (Denver).

The Lesser Black-backed Gull stood on Lake Ladora at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams).

No Short-eared or Burrowing Owls appeared this evening along the DIA Owl Loop (Denver/Adams).

Continued Good Birding!

Hi all


Quite a treat last night on way just outside of Nunn on Weld CR 100 (in order):
Golden Eagle (pic http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/albums/photos/view/30/757/golden-eagle)
Six Bald Eagles (4 ad. 2 imm.) (pics http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/albums/photos/view/30/758/bald-eagle) a mile away
Ferruginous Hawk (pic http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/albums/photos/view/30/759/ferruginous-hawk) a mile away from Balds At lunch today my wife reported that four of the Bald Eagles were in our yard burn area fighting over Prairie Dog lunch-she got some photos, too.

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

Terry and I have been wishing for a break in the snowstorms waiting for our first grouse trip of 2019. Our hope to set new early records has gone. Still it would be nice to be back on the birding road.

High temperature today was only 32 degrees. The lack of winds, only 3-4 mph made for a pleasant winter day.

I took an hour out of finishing chores to stop by Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe). My usual walk is from the Dixon Grove parking lot, along old Parker Road to the western stream flowing into Augie's Pond. Then I go over to the eastern stream and down to the pond, returning to my car by walking along the cattails at the south side of the pond.

Today, as I approached the western stream at old Parker Road, the male Rusty Blackbird was searching for bugs about 20 feed south of the drainage pipe.. He walked into the cattails and did not return in 30 minutes.

The female Rusty Blackbird was in the cottonwood above the stream. She flew about 20 yards south of the drainage and walked the small puddle formed by the stream.

I continued my route, however found the Brown Thrasher around the pond or up at the Smoky Hill Group Picnic Pavilion.

Three Western Bluebirds and two Mountain Bluebirds perched on the cattails along Lake View Road (between the main road and Shop Creek parking area.

No owls were found along the shooting range entrance road. I did not stay until dusk. Half a dozen birders were looking.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Christmas Counts and the CoBus Colorado Database (a.k.a. Birding Is Fun)
Hello cobirders;

I spent the afternoon adding the 119 Audubon Christmas Counts to the CoBus Colorado databases. It took about four hours. Anyone who would like a copy of the excel file just email me.

I counted 211 species on the Audubon Christmas Counts. The ten Christmas Counts conducted by the Colorado Birding Society added eight additional species to the 2018-2019 Colorado Christmas Counts. NOTE: the Thick-billed Kingbird listed on the Grand Junction Christmas Count is suspect. I would enjoy additional information on the sighting.

Other projects recently completed over the last eleven years were the digitizing all of the Colorado Bird Records that I could find. These included DFO Journals, CFO Journals, Birds of Colorado, Niedrach's books, etc. Anyone familiar with them can remember the many tables in the DFO publications and the lists in the CFO Journals.

The most challenging were Jack Reddall's Journals. The leather bound volumes are rather thick. His day books are quite informative and interesting. He may have known something was up as he gave written permission just two months before his passing.

Anyone who might have additional Colorado Bird records and suggestions I do welcome them.

Birding Is Fun, even in the office!

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

Not have much time for birding today however I did stop at Cherry Creek Reservoir when nearby.

I was about to say that the Rusty Blackbird was missed for the sixth consecutive trip when the adult male flew up from the north side of Augie's Pond (northwest of swim beach).

The Rusty Blackbird flew up the western drainage where it joined the female looking Rusty Blackbird below the drainpipe under old Parker Road. They stayed under the "tunnel of cattails and weeds" along the stream.

There was no sign of the Brown Thrasher now missed nine consecutive trips.

Many people were in the field east of the shooting range entrance road. If the Barn Owl was around it had moved on before my arrival.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Birding Around Denver
Hello cobirders;

Rebecca and I had some business downtown Denver; however, several detours were made before and after.

On the way downtown, we stopped at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams County). The previously reported Lesser Black-backed Gull was not at either Lake Ladora or Lower Derby Lake. Perhaps it moved to Havana Ponds; we did not have the time for the 3 mile round trip to check it out.

A Lesser Black-backed Gull was on the ice at McKay Lakes, near McKay Road and 100th avenue (Adams).

After lunch, we continued south to South Platte Park (Arapahoe). There was less traffic than trying to drive back home.

The Harris's Sparrow was perched on a bush at the southwest corner of the Carson Nature Center!

Farther south, we scoped South Platte Park Reservoir (Arapahoe). I had to hike halfway to the dam from the southwest parking area before seeing the Black Scoter. The female/immature bird was swimming along the northwest corner of the Lake (could not be seen from the parking area).

We checked both nearby Blackrock Lake and Eaglewatch Lake and only found Lesser Scaups no Greater Scaups.

A hike about 1/2 mile up Waterton Canyon (south of South Platte Park Reservoir) did not find any uncommon birds.

After sunset, we walked Deer Creek from Hildebrand Park to the entrance to Deer Creek Canyon. A Northern Pygmy-Owl responded to our recordings on our way back to the car. The Owl was closer to Deer Creek Canyon entrance than Hildebrand.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Aurora Reservoir and the First Creek Trail, Arapahoe County
Hello cobirders;

Rebecca and I passed through Cherry Creek State Park (Arapahoe) on our way home from dinner in Aurora. A Great Horned Owl was perched in the cottonwood along Lakeview Drive, just west of Cherry Creek.

Earlier in the day, I walked around Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) for about three hours. A Lesser Black-backed Gull was on the ice 500 yards east of the lower parking lot pavilion.

The Long-tailed Duck was seen when I hiked from the western parking area to the southwest end of the dam. It took five scans of the lake to relocate the Duck! Most of the time it was under water, emerging only 4-5 seconds before diving for food.

A walk to the scuba beach from the northeastern parking area only added three Snow Geese to my day list.

Later I walked the First Creek Trail (Denver). From above the 56th avenue bridge, I could see three Rusty Blackbirds walking along the eastern fork of First Creek.

No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening as I drove the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver).

Continued Good Birding!
