Subject: [cobirders] Colorado State & Counties Bird Checklists revised to 59th Supplement of the AOU Checklist
Good morning cobirders,



The 59th supplement of the AOU Bird Checklist is out. The Official
Historic Colorado Bird Checklist and all County Checklist have been updated.




See "Bird Checklists" on the Colorado Birding Society's website:

http://coloradobirdingsociety.net



Changes affecting Colorado included:



Gray Jay common name is now: Canada Jay

(reverses the 1957 name change)



"Ammodramus" sparrow genus has been split

Grasshopper Sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum)

Baird's Sparrow (Ammodramus bairdii ? Centronyx bairdii)

Henslow's Sparrow (Ammodramus henslowi ? Centronyx henslowi)

LeConte's Sparrow (Ammodramus leconteii ? Ammospiza leconteii)

Nelson's Sparrow (Ammodramus nelsoni ? Ammospiza nelsoni)



"Picoides" woodpecker genus has been split

American Three-toed Woodpecker (Picoides dorsalis)

Black-backed Woodpecker (Picoides arcticus)

Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens ? Dryobates pubescens)

Ladder-backed Woodpecker (Picoides scalaris ? Dryobates scalaris)

Hairy Woodpecker (Picoides villosus ? Dryobates villosus)





New Classification of Hawks, Kites & Eagles;

new subfamilies and sequence now:



Gypaetinae

Swallow-tailed Kite

Accipitrinae

Golden Eagle

Northern Harrier

Sharp-shinned Hawk

Cooper's Hawk

Northern Goshawk

Bald Eagle

Mississippi Kite

Common Black Hawk

Harris's Hawk

Red-shouldered Hawk

Broad-winged Hawk

Swainson's Hawk

Zone-tailed Hawk

Red-tailed Hawk

Rough-legged Hawk

Ferruginous Hawk



Tyrant Flycatchers sequence change.



NOTE: with the addition of Red-breasted Sapsucker and Golden-crowned
Warbler recently added to the Checklist, the official historic Colorado
Bird Checklist now stands at 506 species.



Thanks to the many birders who submit reports daily from website or email
to keep the Colorado Bird Checklist comprehensive!



Pending species include California Condor and Sharp-tailed Grouse (plains
subspecies)



Thank you and Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for July 18, 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!

Subject: [cobirders] More Burrowing Owl Counting [Weld]
Hi all


To add to previous total of 116 Burrowing Owl, I birded very eastern side of Pawnee National Grassland and picked up another 60 for grand total of 176 (so far). I will be updating my Pawnee National Grassland map here (https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1u6nalDC4fXltmTBvu2hwqfvdgDwVrrhM&usp=sharing https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1u6nalDC4fXltmTBvu2hwqfvdgDwVrrhM&usp=sharing) with these new locations sometime today. Beautiful area of Pawnee NG don't hear much birds reporting from it--some roads very birdy (and there is some water, too)!



Other birds:
Tons and tons of Horned Lark (families); Grasshopper Sparrow (families); Western Meadowlark (families) Lots of Lark Bunting (families) Few Cassin's Sparrow heard 2 Sharp-tailed Grouse (very north end of Weld CR 153. They were hidden in excavated dirt piles covered in weeds across from a missile silo) 8 Dickcissel (Weld CR 153/92 NE (1); Weld CR 153/112 NE (6); Weld 153/92 (1)) Ferruginous Hawk platform at Hwy 71/Weld CR 116 had a nice nest no birds (gone?) Pronghorn nursery (8 youngsters, couple of families) at Weld CR 124/Hwy 71 1-2m E on N Next message I post will be announcement for a trip to eastern Pawnee NG.

Hello

Before it got too hot, Jean and I walked the Audubon Center trail at Chatfield State Park.  We counted four Least Flycatchers, one Red eyed Vireo, two Gray Catbirds, two singing Yellow breasted Chats, one American Redstart and a flyby Golden Eagle.

Subject: [cobirders] Help! Nemesis Bird Has Me (almost) Beat
Hello Fellow Birders,

I’m a Southeast Arizona birder visiting Denver relatives for 5 weeks and still have 2 weeks to go. I’ve got one target bird, the Dusky Grouse, and it is now the most challenging nemesis bird I’ve yet run across. I’ve looked for it 14 different days at State Forest State Park, Mount Falcon County Park and Reynold’s Ranch County Park.

I’ve held off asking for help as long as I thought prudent, but I’m beginning to think this might not happen without help.

I HAVE read as much as I could find on this species. Most of my searching has been from 5:30 to 9:30 a.m. but I’ve also looked at midday and in the late afternoon. I’ve concentrated on somewhat open coniferous forests, forest edges and have scoped-out any meadows I’ve come across. I’ve mostly hiked slowly and quietly on trails.

Any hints you can give on location or technique would be greatly appreciated. I can travel and camp anywhere in CO and am a relatively strong hiker. If you’d rather PM me, my email address is: <bruce919...> mailto:<bruce919...>, or text at (520) 266-2256 or we can talk.

I’m kind of at my wit’s end, especially because every now and again I meet folks on the trails who have bumped into a grouse.

Thank you for any help,
Bruce Berman

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

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for July 5, 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!

Subject: [cobirders] No Gallinule But ... [Larimer]
Hi all


Stopped by Running Deer Natural Area on my commute to see Common Gallinule--no luck--I scanned from north sidewalk as well as south side. I did however have a Green Heron fly north to south above heading towards adjacent Cottonwood Hollow Natural Area.


Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Subject: [cobirders] Burrowing Owl Counting and Willet, and Northern Bobwhite [Weld]
Hi all


I got to experience Pawnee National Grassland in its true splendor on roads less traveled. I did Pawnee National Grassland-area Burrowing Owl counts a few times before (for myself) and did one over this past weekend (2 days). I visited about 30+ different "known" prairie dog locations. I think I will do these annually and open up as a field trip if others wish to participate in the fun. I'm building a map of Burrowing Owl locations to track "active" Burrowing Owl activity, post in few days.


This upcoming weekend I'll be out there again exploring the roads I did not get a chance to travel in both eastern and western Pawnee National Grassland sections.

Burrowing Owl - 116 seen in total Along the way ...
Chestnut-collared Longspur - ~12 (immatures, too) along Weld CR 45 just north of Weld CR 114 seen and heard. 3 heard at Weld CR 100 (1m west of) and Hwy 390 prairie dog colony. 2 seen along Weld CR 49 Fewer McCown's Longspurs seen--immatures, too
Tons of Grasshopper and Cassin's Sparrows heard and seen--one stretch I had 12 Grasshopper Sparrow sitting on (same) single fence line for photos
Nice-sized playa at Weld 141 and Hwy 14 NW had Willet (1), American Avocet (5) and Northern Pintail (2) Didn't see any Mountain Plover Over at Crom Lake had a Northern Bobwhite calling (from somewhere).

Hello Dan,
Definitely not an Eastern Phoebe.  Bill, wings and body shape wrong 
I would call it a juvenile Bank Swallow because of amount of white in wings..  For me, not good looks at field marks I would prefer.  Breast should be strong brown and white should wrap around behind auriculars.  Juvenile Tree Swallow has weaker breastband and pale behind auriculars.

Fellow Birders,
I think this is an eastern phoebe, but if there is an alternative call, I can live with that!
Good birding,
Dan

Hi all


I believe there are two families--one closer to road the other on south end of colony about midpoint of colony. Fun to watch! Directions (within Raptor Alley) in photo comments.

Subject: [cobirders] Rocky Mountain Arsenal Saturday evening, Adams County
Hello cobirders,


After Rebecca and I drove eastern Adams & Arapahoe Counties this morning (see Sue's report) I struck out on the Green Heron at Bluff Lake Nature Area (Denver). After dinner Rebecca and I drove the wildlife drive at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams). A Burrowing Owl was 0.2 miles north of mile 9.0. A Northern Mockingbird was 0.2 miles west of Havana and 72nd (southwest end of wildlife drive).


Will put photos (witness) on CoBus website in a few minutes. Full report on Trip Blog


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek State Park Arapahoe County
A Bobolink was south of Lake View Road between the entrances to the
Mountain View and Lake View Loops in Cherry Creek State Park.

An unidenitified vireo was along the draw south of the Lake Loop at 200
yards uphill of Lake View Drive.

After five tries, I finally saw the Green Heron in the cattails on the
north side of the Cottonwood Wetlands Pond. It cost much blood to the
mosquitoes. A Virginia Rail and Sora were also at the pond.

Subject: [cobirders] Mt Evans & Genesee Mountain Park
Hello cobirders;


James and Mark Oh from New Jersey and I drove up Mt Evans Byway this morning.

Two Barrow's Goldeneyes were swimming on Echo Lake.

Two Brown-capped Rosy Finches were on the Shore of Summit Lake, northwest corner.

We scoped the field east of the Summit Lake parking area and saw a White-tailed Ptarmigan hop up on a granite rock. No additional Ptarmigan were at the top of the road (many tourists eventually).

A walk to the Mt Captain Trail at the Echo Lake Campgrounds added a male American Three-toed Woodpecker to our trip list.

The hike along the west side of Echo Lake added a Green-tailed Towhee, Lincoln's Sparrows, Pine Grosbeak and another American Three-toed Woodpecker.

We stopped at Genesee Mountain Park on the way back to Denver. A male Williamson's Sapsucker was found at the group picnic pavilion. Other birds included Pine Siskins, Red-breasted, White-breasted and Pygmy Nuthatches.

Continued Good Birding!

birds are rare birds. Birders may want to know where to see them anyway!
