Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for December 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: To reduce length of report, only recent sightings listed; visit
Colorado Birding Society's website everyday for additional sightings!

Subject: [cobirders] First Creek Trail Harris's Sparrow in Denver County
I was sorry to hear that the First Creek Trail Harris' Sparrow was seen in both Adams and Denver counties. It meant that it moved from its original location where it was easy to find. But then I thought maybe there are two. I went to explore the possibility today.

The number of Tree Sparrows at the original Adams County location was reduced to fourteen down from three dozen. No Harris's found. Returning to Buckley Road a flock of White crowned Sparrows were on the chain linked fence at the Denver trailhead. The Harris's Sparrow was with them. The sparrow had moved east a good quarter mile.

I sent Rebecca witness photos as I do not know how to post them to cobirders.

Hi all

I photographed the Common Goldeneye and Merganser large flock yesterday at Windsor Lake. This morning found a Long-tailed Duck (photo) http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/view/Long-tailed-Duck among the large group.

Windsor and Wood Lake jam-packed full of birds. Drake Lake iced over--500 gulls saw the usuals.

Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Subject: [cobirders] Sunday's photos of Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Trumpeter Swan) & Cherry Creek Reservoir (Red-necked Grebe)
Hello cobirders;

A quick email, I started up to Fort Collins to look for the Harris's Hawk. When I received text message that it was not found I turned around and went to Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams). The Trumpeter Swan is still on Lower Derby Lake .

Then I headed to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) where the Red-necked Grebe was 50 yards off the dam tower.

I put photos of both on the Recent Witness Photos link, Colorado Birding Society's website:
http://coloradobirdingsociety.net

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Salisbury Equestrian Park (Douglas) and Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) on Wednesday
Hello cobirders;


Rebecca and I had to go Colorado Springs Wednesday. We took the scenic highway 83 on the drive home. Temperatures only reached 38 degrees today. Winds were 7-8 mph with gusts to 15 mph.

A thirty minute stop at Black Forest Regional Park (El Paso) did not find an American Three-toed Woodpecker.

No geese were on the Twenty-mile Pond in Parker; we detoured over to nearby Salisbury Equestrian Park (Douglas). The Brant was with hundreds of White-cheeked Geese south of the horse corrals at 3:30 pm.

There was no enough daylight to walk into Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) from the south side. Instead, the lake was scoped from the upper swim beach parking area. I believe I put photos of it on the Colorado Birding Society's photo library last week. Several new photos of the First Creek trail Harris's Sparrow were also added.

We could pick out the adult Lesser Black-backed Gull on the far shore at mile 2.0. Nothing uncommon was found on the Lake with high waves and waning light.

Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders,
John and I found the Common Loon at Rocky Mountain Arsenal then walked the First Creek Trail outside the east side.  The Harris's Sparrow is still with dozens of Tree Sparrows.
BTW, the photos on December's Colorado Field Notes are beautiful.  Kudos to the photographers!!!!

Hello cobirders,

Arapahoe County
Bob Righter found a Greater White-fronted Goose along the eastern side of the Cherry Creek State Park Campgrounds

Jefferson County
David Suddjian relocated the "empidonax" flycatcher at Harriman Lake Park. He now thinks it might be a Least Flycatcher, not Hammond's Flycatcher

Pueblo County
Leon Bright photographed a Prairie Warbler below the Pueblo Reservoir dam this morning.
(Other Colorado winter Prairie Warblers: 12/15/1995 Valco Ponds, Pueblo County; 12/15/2004 Bonny Reservoir Christmas Count, Yuma County)

Subject: [cobirders] Rosy-finches in Teller County
Not in great numbers yet but the Rosies are back in Victor, Teller County, where it was very cold yesterday.


Also present were 20+ Steller's Jays, 8-9 Cassin's Finches, a few Siskins, 2 Evening Grosbeaks (way down from 7-8 a couple of weeks ago), House Sparrows, Juncos, Red-winged Blackbirds, Crows, one American Robin, and 12 deer including a young buck who looks like he had been in a scuffle as parts of his rack had been broken off.

Good birding,


Marie Cecile Lee (Cici)

Subject: [cobirders] Huerfano County Update: Common Redpoll
While I was still bleary-eyed from sleep and attempting to make coffee, I glanced out the window and saw amongst the Pine Siskins something different. Quickly grabbed my bins, fast thinking before you’ve had that first cup of coffee, and saw a Common Redpoll. Quickly went in and woke Paul. It has been 5 years since we had our first one. That one was a male. This appears to be a female. She has flown off with her flock of Siskins. Hoping she returns. Have posted pics on the CFO Facebook page.

Subject: [cobirders] Jefferson, Clear Creek & Arapahoe Counties
Hello cobirders;

Today was colder than yesterday with high temperature of 62 degrees. Winds were 5-6 mph with gusts to 9 mph.

New York birder Ken Bowen and I set out sights on finding a White-tailed Ptarmigan today. An hour before sunrise we parked at Reynolds Park (Jefferson County). A walk along Foxton Road found a Northern Pygmy-Owl presumably along the Songbird trail.

Six White-tailed Ptarmigan were found around the upper parking area at Guanella Pass (Clear Creek). Later we relocated an American Three-toed Woodpecker at the Guanella Pass Campgrounds.

Note: second hand information had Guanella Pass Road closed from Georgetown side. We came from Grant; no telling how much longer the road will be open. Predicted snowstorms will eventually require over a two mile hike from either access to reach the top.

Later I drove home by way of Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe). I scoped the lake from the bench at mile 2.5 (about a mile hike from the southern gate).

Up to three thousand gulls were on the shore below the bench. Two Herring Gulls were among Ring-billed Gulls. I almost missed an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull that was hidden in the mass.

Eight hundred additional gulls stood on the west shore at Senac Cove. A Mew Gull was among the many Ring-billed Gulls. On surprise was the lack of California Gulls.

Few waterfowl were on the lake. Two Western Grebes swam up Lone Tree Cove. I almost missed a Black Scoter in the middle of the lake. It only came to the surface for a count of two or three, then dove again.

Ended my birding day at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) watching thirty eight American Tree Sparrows feeding at Pelican Point. The Swamp Sparrow did not make an appearance. The only gulls (60) on the Point were Ring-billed Gulls.

Subject: [cobirders] Jefferson, Adams, Arapahoe and Jefferson County again
Hello birders,

I had intended on staying on the west side of town in Jefferson County
today. Birding was so slow that I drove up to Rocky Mt Arsenal, Adams
County. The Common Loon continues on Lake Ladora. The Harris's Sparrow
was along the First Creek trail. West of Buckley Road, take trail west,
turns north and then west again. Look for the flock of Tree Sparrows and
Dark eyed Juncos.

At 470 and South Platte Park, five Greater Scaup, Arapahoe County
At Robert Eaton Park,, White throated Sparrow, Jefferson County
Harriman Lake Park, not much
Last stop of day was Lair O' Bear Park, looked for Northern Pygmy Owls and
Swamp Sparrows, found neither. Two American Dippers were along creek
upstream of footbridge.

Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Barr Lake, First Creek & Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Adams & Weld)
Hello cobirders;

Another great fall day in Colorado. We made it through November with warmer than average temperatures and little snow!

This morning I decided to enter Barr Lake (Adams) from the west side (off Buckley Road). Sparrows appear to be in short supply this fall at Barr Lake. The west side had more than any other part I have run into this year.

A White-throated Sparrow was with nine White-crowned Sparrows near the woodpile at the southwest corner.

Later I went to the First Creek Trail (Adams) and relocated the Harris's Sparrow found yesterday by John Breitsch. Terry Michaels and I have been watching the sparrow flock along the trail about 1/4 mile east of Buckley Road. John found a rather plain Harris's Sparrow! I put photos on the Colorado Birding Society's photo library:
http://coloradobirdingsociety.net

My birding day ended at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Weld). Nothing unusual appeared. I did find two Long-eared Owls and a Great Horned Owl. No Short-eared Owls seen tonight.

Continued Good Birding!

Bald Eagle--subadult eating rabbit

Adams County
Red-tailed Hawks--3
Bald Eagle--two adults eating unknown mammal, usual cottonwood near Buckley

I did not find the Eastern Bluebird. Dozens of American Tree Sparrows and

Subject: [cobirders] Saturday Prewitt to Jackson Reservoirs
Hello cobirders & Sue,

Thanks for the text message Jamie Thompson and I saw the Snowy Owl near Fort Morgan, exit 80!

Jamie and I went to Prewitt Reservoir, Logan & Washington Counties this morning.  We found Bonaparte's Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Greater White-fronted Geese and a Red-bellied Woodpecker.

After seeing the Snowy Owl we continued to Jackson Reservoir, Morgan County.  We found a White-throated Sparrow, Long-eared Owl, Eastern Screech-Owl and Great Horned Owl.  We stayed until sunset, no Short-eared Owls to fill out our list.

Good birding!

Hello birders,



I hadn't heard of recent reports from the Arapahoe County lakes and made
the circuit today. Expectations were low. Two Bonaparte's Gulls at Cherry
Creek State Park, nothing unusual at Quincy Reservoir, one Bonaparte's
Gull, one Lesser Black-backed Gull, a Common Loon and three species of
Scoters at Aurora Reservoir.



Good birding!

Hi all

Lunch break to day ... Lake Loveland had a single Greater White-fronted Goose http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/browse/album/Loveland-Lake-Loveland/ (photo) on northwest shore hanging out with throngs of Canada and Cackling Goose (and gulls). Also, Great-tailed Grackle at Woods Lake http://coloradobirder.club/m/photos/browse/album/Wood-Lake/ (photo).

Subject: [cobirders] Arapahos County Geese
Hi all


Had to go to Aurora and walked a few parks while I was there.  A Snow Goose was with 4000+ White-cheeked Geese at the north end of Expo Park.  The flock flew toward Centennial Park at 3:00 pm.  No geese were at Centennial Park when I arrived at 3:15 pm.  Aurora Hills Golf Course adjacent to Centennial was different.  At least 4000 White-cheeked Geese scattered around the golf course.  The same Snow Goose as Expo was at the first tee, near the club house.  I sat down at the restaurant and scoped the fairways.  A Greater White-fronted Goose was on Hole 12. Later Utah Park had 1500 White-cheeked Geese nothing else.

Subject: [cobirders] Douglas County On This Superb Fall Day
Hello cobirders;


Another great fall day in Colorado. Temperatures reached 68 degrees. Winds in the morning and late afternoon were only 4-5 mph. Shortly after noon, gusts briefly reached 41 mph.

Rebecca and I headed south today to visit an ill friend in Franktown. A stop at the twenty-mile pond at Bar CCC Park found the Brant swimming around with several hundred White-cheeked Geese.

After brunch with our friend, we walked the Creekside Trail at Castlewood Canyon (Douglas). No Winter Wrens, our target bird, was found. We did eventually find a Canyon Wren, heard long before sighting it.

Two species of nuthatches (White-breasted, Red-breasted), many Dark-eyed Juncos, a pair of Mountain Bluebirds, a Sharp-shinned Hawk and Cooper's Hawk were also encountered.

Best birds were three male and a female Red Crossbills. For those with copies of February 2015 "Colorado Field Notes", it has a great treatment of the Red Crossbill complex. Included are vocalization and sonograms the Various Red Crossbill types.

White-winged Crossbills are also included. Plans are to revisit the treatment in December 2017 "Colorado Field Notes".

We stopped at Twenty mile Pond on the drive home. This time the Brant was close to shore. After getting about 40 photos, the geese flew north for "dinner".

The flock was relocated at the Water Treatment Plant located on the north side of Railbender Park (Douglas). I took a few additional photos and headed for home.

We parked along 88th avenue, east of Tower Road about 30 minutes before sunset. The location offers nice 360-degree views of the area. No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening.

For those interested in old news, I enjoyed a superb trip to northeastern Colorado last Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I tried to stop at all the Wildlife Area along the South Platte River between Sedgwick and Morgan Counties. Sunday's trip to Guanella Pass was enjoyable also. I put trip reports in "Bird Trip Blog" link on the Colorado Birding Society's website.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Adams to Douglas Counth
Hello birders,

Rocky Mt Arsenal update: Tundra Swan still on Lower Derby Lake. Common Loon on Lake Ladora, Adams County. Down at 20 Mile Pond area, Douglas County: no Brant at Bar CCC park, I found the Brant at northeast of ball fields at Salsbury equestrian park. Several hundred White cheeked geese too. At Cherry Creek State Park a dozen Bonaparte's Gulls.

Good Birding!

Hello cobirders,


Short note before I leave for northeastern Colorado. I put photos of the Tundra Swan on Lower Derby Lake, Rocky Mountain Arsenal on Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library. I did not find any Common Loons, scoters or Greater Scaup on either lake. No Short-eared Owls appeared tonight along the DIA Owl Loop.


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for November 15, 2017

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!

Rich Stevens showed Jamie and me the Black throated Blue Warbler and Varied Thrush behind the Basemar Shopping Center.  The thrush was along Skunk Creek below the red picnic table about halfway between 27th and Broadway.  The warbler was behind the Goodwill store.  At times it stayed low to the ground.  Rich said the warbler moved back and forth between Broadway and 27th.

Hello cobirders;

What a beautiful day! Temperatures reached 73 degrees; winds were only 5-6 mph.

The third time was a charm. I stopped at First Creek Trail, Adams County section this morning and found only the birds encountered yesterday, no Common Redpoll.

On the return trip, I stopped again. This time (3:35 pm), a Common Redpoll was on top of a cottonwood tree. The tree was along First Creek at 30 yards west of Buckley Road, not far from the trailhead.

On the walk back to the Buckley Road 56th Avenue parking area, a Northern Shrike was perched along the fence.

Instead of walking farther west I drove the DIA Owl Loop. Raptors included two Ferruginous Hawks, three Red-tailed Hawks, one American Kestrel and one Prairie Falcon. No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening.

Continued Good Birding!
