Subject: [cobirders] Long-billed Curlew [Weld]
Hi all

I saw a group of six Long-billed Curlew on Pawnee National Grassland yesterday. They were along Weld CR 69 about .5m north of the Swainson's Hawk interpretive sign-both (sign and birds) on west.

McCown's Longspur are all over the place-both side of Weld CR 104-just west of the longspur interpretive sign. I also saw two Chestnut-collared Longspurs, too.

Burrowing owl pair above nest right along Weld CR 96-.1m east of the Lining the Nest interpretive sign on south. Both adults on Weld CR 33 nest above nest, too.

Seven Great-tailed Grackles at Weld CR 84 marsh just west of Weld CR 31 in Pierce.

Subject: [cobirders] Dickcissel's in Boulder County
Hi all,
While riding my bike along N 75th St. in Boulder County I heard the very
distinctive call of two Dickcissels. The first was in the field East of
75th St. directly across from the turn off to Walden Ponds. The second was
in the field NW of the corner of Baseline and 75th.
Seems to be a plethora of these distinctive birds in Boulder this year!

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 26, 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 got this shot of a Wilson’s warbler at Brainard Lake Recreation Area (Boulder Co.) yesterday (6/24/17). The black cap is just visible. New one for me! I believe there were at least two or three, but the rest refused to sit still for a photo!
Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 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
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] White Ibis Still at Clear Creek Valley Park, Adams County
Hello cobirders,

Rebecca Kosten, Amy Davenport and I saw the White Ibis this morning at the pond south of the Clear Creek Valley parking lot. We did drove through Rocky Mountain Arsenal looking for a Red headed Woodpecker. No woodpecker but we did see the Eastern Phoebe and two Burrowing Owls. Enjoy the cool day!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 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!
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] Fantastic Drive Around Eastern Arapahoe County
Hello, John and I had Friday to go birding.  The choice was to drive up to Boulder and look for the Bobolink and Dickcissels atTeller Farms or drive around Eastern Arapahoe County.  Our great choice was Arapahoe Countywhere traffic was almost zero.  Wedreaded getting into the traffic on the way to Boulder. We drove the Jewell-Yale Loop and then went east to a routedesigned by Richard and Rebecca Stevens. With our printed Arapahoe County map with many gpspoints provided by Richard we went. The few birds along the Jewell-Yale Loop included three Redtailed Hawks, two American Kestrels and a scattering of Lark Sparrows. Once on QuincyAvenue, Arapahoe county road 30 we first found the Burrowing Owl at a half mileeast of county road 149.  A Cassin'sKingbird and Grasshopper Sparrow were within a tenth of a mile east of there;before the oil tanks. When we stopped at Bradbury Road and Quincy, the entrance to the ArapahoeCounty Open Space, a Cassin's Sparrow was on the gate.  We managed a couple of photos before thesparrow flew off.  He circled overhead singinghis mating song and then dropped down 20 yards into the Open Space.  By the way, the Open Space is closed to thepublic. Many Lark Sparrows are mating as well as half a dozen LarkBuntings in the Open Space.  We stayedabout an hour enjoying the bird songs. The Cassin's Sparrow did not fly back up.  We returned west to county road 161 and drovesouth to county road 42. At county road 42 we drove east to the infamous hillcut.  A pair of Cassin's Kingbirds was inthe first grove of cottonwoods east of county roads 42 and 161; previouslyreported. A Northern Mockingbird sang constantly at the hill cut.  A second Northern Mockingbird cane from thesouth side of the road and joined him.  ACassin's Kingbird was also there.  Allwere previously reported. We continued east along county road 30 to east Bijou Creek,stopped and walked around.  A Red-headedWoodpecker was about 30 yards south of the road and 20 yards east of Bijou. Then we returned west to county road 42 and then back northto county road 30.  Several GrasshopperSparrows and many Lark Buntings were counted along the drive.  We thought it a little strange that after wehad crossed county road 30 at 139 our kingbird count was eleven Cassin'sKingbirds and only two Western Kingbirds. Five Loggerhead Shrikes and two Bullock's Orioles were also seen. The Burrowing Owl was still on a fence post along countyroad 30, half mile east of 149. At county road 30 and 129 we drove south.  We stopped at Orchard Road and 30 where a Dickcisselwas on the telephone wires on the east side of county road 129.  He sang away and a second Dickcissel joinedhim.  We heard a third Dickcissel singingsomewhere behind us but did not want to get out of the car and scare the birdsaway, so did not see the third Dickcissel. One of the Dickcissels on the telephone wires flew south andlanded on the wires behind the gray house southwest of Orchard and 30. Our return route was county road 129 to county line road,then west to Inspiration Road,then north to Smoky Hill Road.  That added another four Loggerhead Shrikes, aGrasshopper Sparrow, many additional Lark Sparrows and a few more Lark Buntingsto our list. I hope nothing has been forgotten.  Thanks Richard and Rebecca for a greatday.  The cooler weather did nothurt.  Only 66 today after 99 just twodays ago! Marion and John Warren

Subject: [cobirders] Burrowing owl still at Coyote Ridge.
One burrowing owl was seen at Coyote Ridge Natural Area this morning (6/23/17). It was active, catching a cricket and eating it. No sign of the second bird or any young. Again, the burrows are about 200 to 300 meters from the trail head on the south side of the road across from two interpretive guides. The burrow is about 25 meters from the south edge of the road, with a second burrow entrance closer to the road, surrounded by short milkweed plants slightly to the right.
Good birding!
Dan

Subject: [cobirders] Mountain Plover Research Trip Photos/Central Colorado
Hi all

I had the opportunity to go with a Bird Conservancy of the Rockies group to Mountain Plover research site to find, observe, and tag Mountain Plover on Wednesday. Gorgeous weather, sunny, 71 degrees, with great group and lots of fun and more acquired knowledge!

Researcher took us to active nest (adult, two chicks, one egg); probably saw total of 10 plovers (including chicks) in short span. Then there was an untagged plover capture, banding and locator tracker. Other birds and wildflowers, too. Pretty cool stuff! Beautiful vistas.

Subject: [cobirders] Trip through Rocky Mountain Arsenal yesterday, Adams County
Hello cobirders,


Yesterday afternoon Sue Ehlmann, Amy Davenport and I drove through the Rocky Mountain Arsenal. The Eastern Phoebe was back at Second Creek and 64th Avenue. One Burrowing Owl was relocated in the enclosed section of the Wildlife Drive. We couldn't find a Red-headed Woodpecker.


I put photos of the Eastern Phoebe on the CoBus Photo Library. Also added Richard's photos of the Frank Wildlife Area Black Phoebe.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 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] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 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!
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] Nothing special in Eastern Arapahoe County, Adams & Denver Ctys
Hello cobirders,


Richard and I got out early this morning before the day was too hot. Richard wanted to check on two places where Common Poorwills had nested in Arapahoe & Elbert County in the past. Alas, we found no Common Poorwills.


Burrowing Owls are multiplying at Third Creek & West Cargo Road, Trussville & 114th Avenue and Gun Club Road south of 112th Avenue. A Dickcissel was heard along Strasburg Road about a half mile south of I70. One Northern Mockingbird was still at the hill cut along Arapahoe CR 42 at a mile east of CR 161.


Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 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] Soapstone Prairie part 2
I was inspired by the "Wind of Ward" to visit Soapstone Prairie this morning. His tale of his search for the Baird's sparrow waxed so eloquent that I had to commit to the chase. Rarely do I have time to spend and entire morning birding so with children in grandma's care for the entire day I made haste north to the vast prairie.
I departed Aurora at 3:15am and made a prompt arrival at the gate to the park, which was closed, at almost 5. Like magic the gate opened by itself at the stroke of 5 as I was donning a long sleeve shirt and my hiking shoes. I saw my first bird at this point, a common nighthawk darting overhead. I then drove to the South lot and parked at the very first spot on the right as the Pronghorn trail starts there. If you park near the bathroom and shelter you have to walk back to the trail head.
I took one last look at a beautiful crescent moon and Venus very low in the sky. You can tell with the moon so close to the horizon at dawn, not many degrees from the sun, that in a few short weeks it will give North America it's first full solar eclipse in ages. But enough astronomy, I came for ornithology.
I began to head east stopping periodically to view birds that I could just begin to make out even though the sun had not broken the horizon. I spotted, pun intended, a beautiful spotted towhee sitting on a wire fence singing. From there it was the odd meadowlark and pair of grackles until I saw my first sparrow. When I first began birding many many years ago any small sparrow was classified as a "LBB" little brown bird. However now I spend the time attempting to give the "LBB's" I see a name. The first was a Savannah Sparrow.
By the time I was about halfway to my destination the Horned Larks were out in force and I got good practice with them at scanning the grass for birds as they moved among the myriad tufts. You know you are nearing the junction of the Plover trail when you can see a small outbuilding in the distance. It was here I heard voices from behind me for the first time all morning. I stopped at the junction soon after and the group of three young guys finally caught up with me. I could see all three gentleman had binoculars and one of them asked me upon arrival, "Are you looking for sparrows?" "Yup Baird's was", was my reply. "I heard they were seen north of here", he then said, "We have permission to go off trail and look for nesting activity." "Well I read an account from just the other day that the Baird's was found south of the junction", I told him.
The four of us stood around chatting and as they were obviously ornithology graduate students I considered tagging along with them to the north. Heck the last time I took a little detour and followed an experienced birder, just a few weeks ago, I got to see a Rail for the first time. Finally the chit chat was over signified by one of the three asking his compatriots, "Well you want to head north?"
As much as I wanted to follow along and join up with their mission I decided to go with my gut and take the turn south along the Plover trail. About 50 yards down the trail I observed a Wilson's snipe. It was winnowing loudly which was what first brought it to my attention. I had never seen one before and fondly remember the many "Snipe hunts" I used to drag the kids in my group on when I was a camp counselor.
I took one last listen to the song of the Baird's on my phone through the small bluetooth speaker in the pocket of my backpack. I had been listening to it off and on as I walked to familiarize myself with it. Close to 100yds down the Plover trail I heard a call. Immediately I reached into my pocket to silence my phone as I thought I had somehow hit the play button from my Merlin app. When I pulled the phone out I realized it was not the app.
I froze, listening intently not believing I had truly heard what I did. Another call and it was so distinctive I knew it had to be the Baird's. A little more scanning with the binoculars and finally there it was. Proudly sitting at the top of of a small tuft of grass. I just stared waiting to see its mouth open at the same time I heard the song to prove that this was the bird singing. For the next 8 minutes it sang over and over in that same spot, never moving. I actually had time to pull out my phone and record him singing. Finally he dipped down into the grass and that was that, looking at my watch it was now exactly 8am and I had been birding since 5:20.
I walked north a little ways to eat lunch and watched the 3 guys I met before as they walked off trail and circled back to where they left their backpacks. When they arrived I told them where I found the Baird's and they returned the beta I gave them by pointing out some McCowns Longspurs, a bird I had never seen. It was cool to see how they V their wings and kind of plummet when they land.
They continued on with their fieldwork in the direction of where I saw the Baird's and I headed west back to the parking lot. I am amazed that in a sea of grass where we I can only walk on a small island ribbon of trail that I was able to locate such a small bird from information gleaned from a fellow birder.
I wont apologize for the windy email and Doug neither should you as it was your exciting story that inspired me to head out and share in a glorious birding experience on the high plains. I concur that if you have not made a stop here the trails are nice and its well worth the trip.

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] Photos of the White Ibis, Clear Creek Valley Park, Adams County
Hello cobirders;

I put photos of the White Ibis at Clear Creek Valley Park on the CoBus Photo library
http://coloradobirdingsociety.net

It was not my first Adams County White Ibis. I photographed the one at Barr Lake State Park on 4/27/2000

For those who received June's "Colorado Field Notes", the White Ibis was last seen on the Eastern Northern Pond (photos of area in issue). This area is now called Clear Creek Valley Park. It is a nice catch that the area was made Birding Spot of the Month for June, 2017

I was there a few weeks ago taking photos of Lowell Ponds Wildlife Area for Dave King's article. Every Snowy Egret was scoped, no White Ibis. The bird had to fly in the last two weeks.

Enjoy! Continued Good Birding!

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

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] Eastern Arapahoe County
Hello cobirders;


After the US Golf Tournament ended, Rebecca and I went for a drive in Eastern Arapahoe County. Temperatures dropped in the evening; a cool breeze blew across the plains.

A Dickcissel was relocated along Strasberg Road approximately a half mile south of I70. Both a singing Northern Mockingbird and Cassin's Kingbird were at the hill cut along CR 42 at a mile east of CR 161. A Burrowing Owl continues along CR 30, east of CR 149. A Common Nighthawk was on a telephone wire near CR 30/CR 129.


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Baird's Sparrows, Soapstone Prairie, Larimer Co.
I'm typically not much of a "chaser", but when I learned from list serve
posts back in May (2017) about the small breeding population of Baird's
Sparrows that has been on the Soapstone Prairie in extreme north central
Larimer Co., CO, for the past three (3) years (?), and that they were a
little over three (+3) mile hike across near pristine prairie, I was sold,
particularly since this one would be a "lifer" for me and they are coming
fewer and further between, so just needed to find the time. Well the time
finally came this morning (Sun., 18 Jun.'17). I started hiking around
5:45am, which I thought was going to be a little too late - got tied up in
Denver after hoping to leave around 4am,but didn't get on the highway until
almost 4:30am - though immediately relaxed as this was my first true prairie
walk for a very long time and I realized how much I missed this ecosystem
since being away in Idaho.



As per previous desciptions, I headed east on Pronghorn Loop from the south
parking lot for the 3.2 mile hike to the intersection with Plover Trail. I
had read most folks were finding the birds just north of this junction, so
walked, listened, walked, listened for the next hour to the north.no
Baird's. Feeling a bit disappointed, though still very happy in this
setting on a beautiful morning, started to head back. Before turning west,
thought I'd try to the south of the junction for a last ditch effort. Good
decision. I stopped and listened to a couple of species singing, then heard
the distinctive song of a BAIRD'S SPARROW a little further down the trail
(before the fence). I'd familiarized myself with their song last night and
was now stoked. After about 15 minutes of hunting, found one singing from a
low perch, but a decent view. Over the next half hour or so, located three
(3) individuals around a taller patch of vegetation, including several good
views singing from the fence, with good comparisons to several GRASSHOPPER
SPARROWs as well as a nice SAVANNAH SAPRROW. The walk back was now going to
be much more gratifying. Lifer - high five!! Kudos to whomever initially
found this population out there given the extreme extralimital extent they
represent, and being cognizant of their identity in such a remote place -
still find it incredible.



So finding the Baird's was a great joy for me. But as all of you who spend
any time in the field can attest, some sort of weirdness is almost expected
every time you head out. Today, it wasn't the sparrow show for me, but an
immature SNOW GOOSE calling and flying low over the open prairie without a
lick of water in sight!! He dropped down just over a rise from the trail,
so not believing what I'd just seen, followed it to see if I could get a
better look to confirm its identity. Sure enough, there he was walking
around in a waterless swale of taller grass, thinking, and looking very much
like, he was wandering the Arctic tundra. No question on identity - medium
sized, mostly dirty white goose with pink legs and a triangular pinkish-grey
bill with distinctive black "lips"; blackish primaries, but retaining
immature's grey secondaries. Go figure.



Heading into this morning's hike, I certainly was hoping to find the Baird's
Sparrows, but honestly was really looking forward to spending time in a
beautiful patch of prairie; many thanks to the City of Fort Collins for the
foresight to preserve this area. Not only was the bird life abundant, but
the mammals put on a good show too with Pronghorn, Coyotes, and Black-tailed
Prairie Dogs everywhere, a SWIFT FOX "hiding in plain sight" at its den (?),
a big Badger checking me out from his, as well as a White-tailed Jackrabbit
and cottontails scattered throughout the walk.



I apologize for the windy email, but obviously had a pretty nice morning
that I wanted to share. More important than my musings is that the Baird's
Sparrows are still out there for others to find, and if you haven't already,
give it a try and enjoy this nice piece of the State.



Good Birding,

Doug Ward

Subject: [cobirders] CoBus Photo Library back up and running
Hello cobirders;


Six week's ago our internet service provider dropped support for the computer code I was using for the CoBus Photo Library. While watching the US Open today I had time to learn new code (after three weeks of headaches). The Photo Library is up and running. We are weeks behind posting photos and hope to catch up this week.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Goldeneye (??) at Old Dillon Reservoir, Summit County
My husband and I hiked up and around the Old Dillon Reservoir today, not intending to bird at all. There were 2 ducks in the water and I didn't get a good look at them because the closer I got, the farther out they swam and I had no binoculars. I believe they were Goldeneyes and I couldn't tell you if they were Barrow's or not since I couldn't get a close up look. Perhaps if someone is in Summit County they might check it out with binoculars and report back if you're interested.


Happy Father's Day.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 16, 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] Eastern Arapahos County
Hello birders,

I could not find the Cassin's Sparrows at Quincy and Bradbury. Although a plain sparrow was flying around in a circle too far away to id. The Mockingbirds and Cassin's Kingbird's were at the hillcut along CR 42 about a mile east of CR 161. Dickcissels were heard along Strasbourg Road but I never saw them. The Blue Grosbeak was not around the Arapahos County Fairgrounds.

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

Hello cobirders,


Amy left off our Yellow-billed Cuckoo sighting. While we walked under the canopy of trees along Chambers Road, just north of 64th avenue a Yellow-billed Cuckoo switched branches. It would have remained undiscovered if it had not moved. The cuckoo was along the south side of the swallow pond. It is not our first Rocky Mountain Arsenal Yellow-billed Cuckoo having found them 5/23/2010, 6/1/2013 & 8/27/2016


Continued Good Birding!

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

Richard Stevens and Rebecca Kosten called as they left Rocky Mountain
Arsenal, Adams County. They found a Red-headed Woodpecker in the lone
cottonwood tree on the west side of the Wildlife Drive, north of the grove
of canopy trees after turning onto Chambers Road from 64th Avenue. There
are reports of several Red-headed Woodpeckers along the drive.

They saw an Eastern Phoebe below 64th avenue where Second Creek flows under
the road.Several Burrowing Owls can be seen at the northwest corner of the
wildlife drive.

Rebecca thought she saw a Bobolink in the field southeast of 88th avenue
and Havana. At the time, they were parked at the first fire hydrant east
of Havana.

Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Mt. Evans Bird Trip on Monday 6/12
Hello cobirders,

On Monday, I lead the CoBus trip to Mt. Evans (Clear Creek) on this pleasant summer day. Five of us skipped the hot temperatures down in Denver while birding around snow piles on the Mountain.

Two Brown-capped Rosy Finches were observed flying around the north side of Summit Lake. A few American Pipits and Common Ravens also stopped by for a drink.

We used our SUV as a windscreen and scoped the field below and east of the Summit Lake parking area. Eventually we spotted a White-tailed Ptarmigan off in the distance! Richard Berg was not able to walk far; that limited our birding range.

Back at the Echo Lake Campgrounds, we only had to walk about 50 yards before finding a male American Three-toed Woodpecker drumming on a pine tree.

A Barrow's Goldeneye continued on Echo Lake. Broad-tailed Hummingbirds buzzed overhead. A Lincoln's Sparrow ran across the trail and a Green-tailed Towhee called from the willows.

Regrettably, I was not able to find a Pine Grosbeak fairly close to our car. Terry Michaels and I did see one and an additional American Three-toed Woodpecker along the telephone line, west side of Echo Lake. It was a good 1/2 mile from the parking area.

Later we drove up Loveland Pass (Clear Creek). Unfortunately, no White-tailed Ptarmigan were found.

A stop at a friend's home in Summit County added some nice birds to our trip list: Brown-capped Rosy Finches, Mountain Chickadees, Pine Siskins, Gray Jays, Clark's Nutcrackers, Band-tailed Pigeon, White-breasted and Pygmy Nuthatches, Downy & Hairy Woodpeckers, Pine Grosbeaks and one Evening Grosbeak.

Nothing uncommon was at the Blue River Water Treatment Plant. Two Ospreys were found nearby.

Great scenery, good friends and some nice birds, what more can anyone ask for?

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Tuesday Trip through Arapahoe, Elbert, Douglas & Adams Counties
Hello cobirders;

Everyday birding is marvelous; I have especially enjoyed the last two days!

Rebecca Kosten and I enjoyed a superb day of birding before the afternoon heat. We explored eastern Arapahoe County, south into Elbert County and returned by way of Douglas County.

At 5:00am when we left home, the temperature was in the low 60s. Winds were mild until late afternoon when 12+ mph winds brought hot winds.

We drove to Strasburg and headed south on Strasburg Road (Arapahoe CR 157). Two Dickcissel were heard when we stopped approximately 0.5 miles south of I70.

Another two Dickcissel were found along CR 14, east of CR 157. Several additional birds were seen and heard when we drove south down Flandin Court (which may be someone's driveway although listed as a county road).

Continuing south we detoured west at CR 30 (Quincy Road), took a quick photo of the Burrowing Owl east of CR 149 and then returned east.

CR 30 dead ends at Bradbury Road (Arapahoe CR 173). One of the two reported Cassin's Sparrows was on a fence post near the entrance to the Arapahoe County Open Space.

Unfortunately, it flew before we could get a photo. The bird circled overhead for the next 15 minutes or so and then landed about 20 yards into the property.

There is no public access to the Open Space. We stayed around for 30 minutes listening to the bird songs in the cool morning. Western Meadowlarks, Lark Buntings, Red-winged Blackbirds and a couple of Song Sparrows filled the air with their songs.

Then we turned west, drove down CR 161 and turned east at CR 42. We stopped at one of my favorite "sweet spots", the cut hill approximately 1.0 miles east of CR 161.

A Northern Mockingbird sang the whole time during our 30 minute stay. Eventually a second Northern Mockingbird appeared. A pair of Cassin's Kingbirds also called. Western Kingbirds were just down the road.

We explored the gravel county road and worked our way west to Kiowa-Bennett Road. More than a dozen Cassin's Kingbirds and nine Loggerhead Shrikes were encountered.

At Kiowa-Bennett Road, we turned south hoping to find somewhere to eat Breakfast in Kiowa. At Kiowa we detoured south down Elbert Road to the electric building located 4.1 miles south of Hwy 86.

Two Dickcissels were on telephone wires when we arrived. We may have heard an additional two birds before returning to Kiowa and going west to Elizabeth.

Breakfast, unfortunately was at the Subway in the Elizabeth Walmart. Hello Angie, if you knew where you lived, we would have stopped by and said Hi. She donates some of her great photos to "Colorado Field Notes".

We circled Castlewood Canyon State Park by way of Hwy 83 and Lake Gulch Road. Both Mountain and Western Bluebirds are using bluebird boxes along Lake Gulch Road.

At least four males and a female Bobolink were observed in the field south of the Winkler Ranch entrance (Douglas County). We stopped at Hwy 86 and Castlewood Canyon Road. The short walk down to the bridge found an Eastern Phoebe catching bugs and flying to a nest. We did see a second Eastern Phoebe north of the bridge.

We detoured the City of Parker by way of back roads and stopped at Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe). A Say's Phoebe was the most interesting bird there.

Burrowing Owls were found at Third Creek & West Cargo Road and at the corner of Trussville and 114th avenue. I had stopped and washed the SUV near Southland Mall so did not drive the gravel Gun Club Road to check on the Burrowing Owls a mile south of 112th avenue.

It was getting hot; we rushed home for cool digs and a barbecue!

Continued Good Birding to All!

Subject: [cobirders] Burrowing owls [1 Attachment]
A burrowing owl was relocated at Coyote Ridge Natural Space this morning (6/13). The burrow is located approx. 200 m from the trail head. There are two nature guide stands on the north side of the trail at the point where the burrow is located about 25 m from the south side of the trail. Look to the south while standing at the nature guides and look for a dead bush slightly to the left about 100 m out. The owls are in a low burrow with green over growth half way to the bush. A photo of the owl and burrow are attached.
Good birding,
Dan

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

Subject: [cobirders] Bird Photos including First Creek Barn Owls
Hello cobirders,


I received Dave's Eastern Phoebe photos. Our photo library crashed a few weeks ago. Most photos are backed up at a separate site. I have been trying to start a new photo library on a different server. Hope to have it fixed by tonight.


Before Richard left on his birding trip this morning he uploaded a photo of the adult and five Barn Owls to the "recent witness photos link" on the main website:

Subject: [cobirders] Castlewood Canyon Douglas County
Hello birders,

I tried to get out before the heat. They have hummingbird feeders out at Castlewood Canyon State Park. Most were female Broad tailed. The few males were too busy defending their territories to eat. Other birds found Turkey Vultures, House Wrens, Cordilleran Flycatcher, Spotted Towhee, a lost? Carson's Find.

Four males and two female Bobolink were in the field south of the Winkler Ranch entrance. I sent Rebecca photos of the Eastern Phoebe along Cherry Creek just south of the hwy 86 bridge. There was a second bird north of the bridge.

Birders,
I attended the monthly bird count at Bobcat Ridge Nature Area yesterday. I’m sure a full account of all of the birds that were seen will be forthcoming. Here is a link to the birds I was able to photograph. It was a good day to be out!

I found a Mountain Bluebird Sunday at Weld CR 114/45 intersection. Two Chestnut-collared Longspur were seen along Grassland Road (GR) 500 which is about 1-2 miles north of Weld CR 90 on Weld CR 49. One Burrowing Owl at prairie dog colony just south of Weld CR 59 marsh area. Three Common Nighthawk sleeping on fence posts along Weld CR 102 east of Weld CR 41.

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek SP Sunday morning
Saw over 40 species with the on an excursion this from the prairie loop to the wetlands. No green heron or redstart but enjoyed the yellow breasted chat and many others. Did see 1 and heard 2 Virginia Rail on the small northern most pond along W. Lakeview Rd. I saw the rail on the northwestern corner of the pond among the vegetation where it was least wet as water was high on the pond.

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek State Park, Arapahos County
I looked for the Green Heron at the State Park. Missed it again, an American Redstart was between the Prairie Loop and the Lake loop. do you think it is just passing through or nesting in the Park? The Long eared Owls were a no show. Many Western and a pair of Eastern Kingbirds around. Water level very high, no Shorebirds.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 10, 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

I found the Northern Mockingbird along Knudsen road at 0.6 miles east of Road 161. One Cassin's King was in same area. The Burrowing Owl is along Road 30 east of Road 149. I still could'nt find any Dickcissels.

The burrowing owls were still active at Coyote Ridge Open Space, Larimer Co., this morning. Again, the active burrow is about 200 yards from the trail head on the south side, about 20 yards off the trail. Be careful: rattle snakes have been spotted in the area. Photos from today can be seen here: Click Here <https://www.flickr.com/photos/18276798@N07/albums/72157681840246754>

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 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 June 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,

I stopped at Union Reservoir on my way home from Estes Park. One Semipalmated Plover is at the northwest corner.

Two White tailed Ptarmigan at Medicine Bow Curve. Rich Stevens found a Boreal Owl for us at Hidden Valley. A Northern Pygmy Owl was just after the steps at Cow Creek.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 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
website everyday!

Subject: [cobirders] Eastern Arapahoe County
Hello,

I drove the eastern Arapahoe County roads. No Dickcissels at last years spots along CR 129. A male Ring necked Pheasant hit my car trying to chase a female that I just missed hitting.

Several Cassin's Kingbirds and a Grasshopper Sparrow were along County Line Road east of CR129.

No Dickcissels at spot along CR 30 east of CR 129. Best bird a male Summer Tanager was north side of CR 30 at Creek east of Kiowa Sporting Club. Maybe that is Kiowa Creek? Beautiful bird!

Burrowing Owl is still along CR 30 east of CR 149.

No Great Crested Flycatcher at hwy 36/hwy 70 spot reported two days ago.

Good birding!

Dave King
Denver

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

On my way back to Walden, I made a quick loop southeast of DIA.

I could not find the reported Great Crested Flycatcher at hwy 36 and hwy 70. Nor did I find the Mountain Plover along CR 38 (piggott road) between 160 & 144th avenues.

A Common Nighthawk was just west of Piggott and 144th.

A Red Headed Woodpecker was at Boxelder Creek and 96th. None was at 104th. No Cassin's Sparrow found along the loop yet this year.

Got nice photos of an immature Ferruginous Hawk along 56th east of the toll road.

Contined Good Birding

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 3, 2017
Hello cobirders;


CONGRATULATIONS to Richard Spitzer for photgraphing the Lake John Red-necked Grebe on 5/21. It was relocated on Friday. The photo is the cover of June's "Colorado Field Notes"


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] Black Phoebe in Weld & Larimer Counties!!!
Hello cobirders;

With our monthly CoBus meeting scheduled for Saturday night near Walden, I regrettably needed to return to Denver for an emergency. A detour home went close to Frank Wildlife Area (Larimer) and I made a quick stop.

Good news, bad news; the good news was that I was able to get half a dozen witness shots of the Black Phoebe within 15 minutes. The bird was on the south side of the River originally approximately 50 yards east of the County Road 13 Bridge over the Poudre River.

The bad news, while waiting for a better photo a warbler decided he wanted every willow limb upon which the Black Phoebe perched. The warbler chased the Black Phoebe off limbs four times. Then the phoebe flew about 150 yards upstream of the River. Although as a result, I was able to see the Black Phoebe in both Larimer and Weld Counties!

Somewhat good news, the warbler was a male Black-throated Gray Warbler. It was an interesting exchange and my only birding of the day.

While looking for the Phoebe, I did see a beautiful male Orchard Oriole, Eastern Kingbird and Western Kingbirds.

Oops almost forgot, a Dickcissel was near the alfalfa field within a quarter mile west of Weld County Roads 50 & 17.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Some Bird Sightings Near Colorado (non Colorado sightings)
Hello cobirders,

Bill Kaempfer offers some bird sightings near Colorado:

First, for the past four or five days there has been a Brown Booby flying
around at Harlan County Lake at Alma in south central Nebraska. Harlan
County Lake is about midway between Kearney, NE and Hays, KS, and very
close to the NE/KS state line. The lake is huge, probably bigger than John
Martin Reservoir but it seems to like roosting on the dam.



Second, today eight Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were spotted in
Bridgeport, NE. . https://www.facebook.com/WildcatAudubon/ This is about
75 miles north of Sterling on the North Platte.



Third, two weeks ago during that last big storm I observed 54 Purple
Martins at a martin house in Benkelman, NE which is in Dundy County, just
east of Wray.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for June 1, 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 May 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!
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] Black Phoebe/Windsor
Hi all

I birded Frank SWA and adjacent Poudre River Trail in Windsor on Sunday and found a singing Black Phoebe at the bridge near parking lot. It performed for me at the dead tree along river as you start walking the dirt trail of Frank SWA. It "fly-catched" numerous times above the Poudre River as well returning to the perch.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for May 30, 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 May 29, 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 May 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!

Subject: [cobirders] Bluff Lake Nature Area Denver County
Hello birders,

Rich Stevens called to say that he could not find the Worm eating Warbler at Bluff Lake Nature Area during a three hour search. He did find a Northern Waterthrush and Hermit Thrush on the north side of the lake. Both were within 50 yards of the only willow hanging over the northern trail. Both only allowed brief looks.

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for May 27, 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:

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!
