Birders!
I spotted this chickadee in our backyard (SW Loveland) this afternoon (11/16) and noticed the breast was buff colored instead of white. I’m thinking it might be a Pacific one. Your input would be appreciated!

Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for November 16, 2018

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

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek Reservoir Wednesday Afternoon
Hello cobirders;

After Terry Michaels and I returned to Denver (180+ mile drive), I stretched my legs at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County)

What a fantastic afternoon. Temperature was 60 degrees and winds were calm at 3:30 pm.

After scoping the mudflats from the Lake Loop to Prairie Loop, Mark Chavez had suggested the pond on the north side of the lake.

The pair of Rusty Blackbirds walked the northern end of the pond west of the swim beach. Frank Farrell was already looking at the birds when I arrived.

Photos on the Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library (recent favorite photos link).

We stayed around until well after sunset which is not long a wait with the shorten late fall days. Hundreds of geese flew in, no swans.

I did not see many uncommon birds on the lake when scoped earlier. The Mew Gull was back on the sand spit north of Pelican Bay.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] South Platte Birding Area Adams County
Hello,
I walked the South Platte Birding Area from 88th avenue to 72nd avenue this morning.  The Long-tailed Duck was still on Western Gravel Lake.  I zipped on the Red-necked Grebe, Barrow's Goldeneye and Swamp Sparrow, although a Lincoln's Sparrow was in the willows where Rich thought he had a Stub-tailed Wren last Saturday.
Good birding

Arapahoe County
Bob Righter relocated the two Rusty Blackbirds (Edward Donnan, 10/31) at Cherry Creek State Park. He saw them off the bird platform at the Prairie Loop. Sometimes they wander west behind the cattails and have to be seen from the southwest corner of the Lake Loop

Subject: [cobirders] Aurora Reservoir Monday!
Hello cobirders;


I returned to inspect the Arapahoe County Reservoirs this afternoon. Temperatures never warmed up; the high was 26 degrees. Winds were calm to 2 mph at Aurora Reservoir. The lack of wind made it feel not cold at all.



I spent several hours at Aurora Reservoir. Daylight ended before I could get over to nearby Cherry Creek State Park (8 miles to the west).



The Gull count at Aurora Reservoir was six+ times greater than my visit yesterday; thousands of gulls swam on the lake. I scoped the horde from the upper swim beach parking area and the only uncommon Gull identified was one Lesser Black-backed Gull.



A Common Loon swam off mile 5.0, while a second loon kept my attention for more than half an hour. Unfortunately, it stayed quite far away off mile 4..0.



The loon did not dive during the 45+ minutes I watched it. I assumed the bill was not wet. It lacked the neck markings of a Common Loon. Its bill appeared yellow. Its back appeared barred. The head appeared lighter than the back.



I am always a little hesitant to call a loon's bill yellow at sunset. Many times a wet black bill appears to pick up the sunset colors. Therefore, I waited until sunset. Shortly after the sun went behind the mountains, the loon's bill still looked yellow.



This was most likely a Yellow-billed Loon.



Later I walked a half mile either direction of Piccadilly Road and Jewell Avenue. Both Eastern Screech-Owls and Barn Owls have been observed/heard during my previous hikes. However, none was encountered tonight.


I cannot return tomorrow, starting a historic trip, more on that later.


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Arapahoe County Reservoirs Sunday
Hello cobirders;

Yesterday I could not find anyone who wanted to go birding in the snowstorm.. I walked into Aurora Reservoir from the south gate by myself.

A Black Scoter swam around in Lone Tree Cove. Two Iceland Gulls and a Lesser Black-backed Gull were among hundreds of gulls at mile 2.5. Most were Ring-billed Gulls; I did see at least two Herring Gulls and a dozen California Gulls.

By the time I reached Cherry Creek Reservoir in the afternoon, visibility was quite pathetic. Less than half the lake could be seen from any viewpoint.

The four Tundra Swans reported earlier in the day appeared to have left. In my experience, four of the five times, I have observed swans here; they had flown in after 4:00pm and departed before 9:00am the next day. Staying to watch sunset can be advantageous.

Only a couple of Killdeer walked the mudflats off the bird platform area, Prairie Loop. From the southeast corner of the Lake Loop, I could see two Rusty Blackbirds walking the mudflats, which cannot be seen, from the bird platform.

Next, I hiked the Cherry Creek Reservoir Dam trail from Pelican Bay to the Dam's Tower. Eight White Pelicans and many Ring-billed Gulls were on the sand spit. The Mew Gull was not here today.

Waterfowl were closer than usual from the shore probably because visibility was so poor. Best sighting was a White-winged Scoter among a group of Goldeneyes. I had to wait quite a while for it to flat its wings and cement the ID.

At least ten Bonaparte's Gulls joined Ring-billed Gulls diving for food below the dam. Misses: the previously reported Black Scoter, Red-necked Grebe, Long-tailed Duck and Common Loon were not found. That may have been due to low visibility?

Still waiting for it to warm up before returning to the Arapahoe County Reservoirs, it is 27 degrees at 1:00pm.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Birding In Adams County Saturday (Red-necked Grebe, Long-tailed Duck)
Hello cobirders;

The calm before the storm, it was a beautiful day until late afternoon. High temperature was 56 degrees around 2:00pm. Winds were 6-7 mph. At 4:00pm a storm blew in from the east northeast. Temperatures dropped rapidly and anomometer readings soared to 24 mph.

Rebecca wanted to see a Harris's Sparrow so we walked the First Creek Trail at Buckley Road. The previously seen Harris's Sparrow did not show; however, one White-throated Sparrow did. Again, the bird was with a dozen White-crowned Sparrows, three Song Sparrows and a Lincoln's Sparrow on or just south of the chain link fence southwest of the trailhead.

Missing the Harris's Sparrow, we headed to Bluff Lake Nature Area (Denver). This Harris's Sparrow was cooperative to a point. It appeared several times as it scurried across the gravel trails behind (north) the maintenance building.

Our next choice was either Cherry Creek Reservoir, which we have visited several times this month or something new. Our choice was to hike the South Platte Birding Area (Adams) from 88th avenue to hwy 224 and back.

It turned out to be a first-rate selection.

We scoped the northern West Gravel Lake from the road running east to west along the north side of the lake.

First, a female Long-tailed Duck was spotted about 50 yards to the south. I put photos of the adult female in basic plumage on the Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library. coloradobirdingsociety.net

Next, we noticed a bird that was too big to be a Pied-billed Grebe. It was too far away to judge the actual size of the lone bird. It did not look like a Western Grebe, more like a small loon and not a Common Loon.

After watching it swim closer, it was identified as a Red-necked Grebe!

We continued south scoping the Platte River from the trail along the east side of West Gravel Lakes. Fifteen Common Goldeneyes were at the southern end of the northern lake. Another six were on the southern West Gravel Lake..

Dropping down to the Platte River trail at the end of the West Gravel Lakes trail we found a male Barrow's Goldeneye with five female/immature Common Goldeneyes. A dog walker came by and his dog chased the Goldeneyes east to Tani Reservoir.

Later we scoped both East Gravel Lakes and Dahlia Pond, no additional uncommon birds were found. High winds encouraged us to give up on scoping Tani Reservoir or lakes farther south.

Not a bad afternoon with a predicted snowstorm arriving sometime in the night or later!

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Harris's Sparrow still at Bluff Lake Nature Area, Denver County
Hello,
The Harris's Sparrow reported on 10/28 by George Ho at Bluff Lake Nature Area was still there this afternoon.  Walk the many paths behind the Visitor's Center and look up the gravel paths.  The Harris's Sparrow was with 4-6 White-crowned Sparrows.  An American Tree Sparrow and several other White-crowned Sparrows were by themselves on other paths.  Rebecca informed me that she put two of my photos on the Colorado Birding Society's photo library.

Subject: [cobirders] Mostly Adams County (Swamp Sparrow, White-throated Sparrow)
Hello cobirders;

Eventually I needed to end up at Life Care Center of Aurora north of Cherry Creek Reservoir.

I looped my way down with the first stop being Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams). It took several hours to work my way through the hundreds of ducks on Lower Derby Lake. Unfortunately, none was rare although there were dozens of our common ducks. No shorebirds or uncommon gulls found.

The recently opened trail (from Lower Derby Lake parking area) to the Rod and Gun Club Pond and bird blind cuts the walk down from 4 miles round trip to less than a mile. The pond was loaded with Buffleheads, Gadwalls, American Coots and Mallards. Again no uncommon ducks, no shorebirds and no gulls. A Wilson's Snipe walking the southern shore was the highlight. No Swamp Sparrows could be conjured up either.

No waterfowl were on the north end of Lake Ladora. The southern end had many Hooded Mergansers, American Coots and a few Gadwalls.


My next stop was Barr Lake (Adams). The route appears circuitous; however, it was designed to miss most of our busy Friday traffic. Try driving north on Tower Road toward Barr Lake, any day of the week it is a nightmare.



On the drive to Barr Lake, I stopped at the Town of Barr. Best place to pick up a Great-tailed Grackle, a pair was just south of the railroad tracks. The cattails along the I76 south service road added a Yellow-headed Blackbird to my day list. These cattails usually provide my first and last Yellow-headed Blackbird sightings each year.


I scoped Barr Lake from the north end of the dam (mile 6.0). No shorebirds were found. The Common Loon continued off is the distance near mile 5.0.

No additional uncommon waterfowl was observed from the boat ramp area. Shoreline is now far off.

My final and best stop was the First Creek Trail. I walked from 56th avenue (west of Tower Road) to the western end at the Pond outside the border fence.

No sparrows were found on the hike west. I searched for the Swamp Sparrow found a few days ago at 50-80 yards west of the Adams County trailhead. Thirty+ Dark-eyed Juncos, two Song Sparrows and four American Tree Sparrows were along the path.

Continuing west, I was checking First Creek where a Harris's Sparrow has spent much of last winter. Only a couple of Dark-eyed Juncos and a Song Sparrow were found when a Swamp Sparrow popped out of the cattails.

The Swamp Sparrow flew upstream along First Creek at least five times. Unfortunately, it dove into the cattails when it stopped (so no photos).

Many Red-winged Blackbirds and a couple of Gadwall were around the pond. Then I turned around.

Back at the trailhead at Buckley Road, I walked slowly along the chain link fence at the southwest corner. Sparrows would pop out of the grasses and land on the fence to look around.

The count was sixteen White-crowned Sparrows, three Song Sparrows and a White-throated Sparrow. While trying to photograph the White-throated Sparrow, a Harris's Sparrow also flew up and landed on the fence.

I believe photos of all four species of sparrows were captured, will not have time to look through them until Saturday.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Looking for Murrelets and Sagebrush Sparrows after a snowstorm
Hello cobirders;

Terry Michaels and I headed to Chatfield Reservoir (Jefferson/Douglas). Most of the Murrelet records in Colorado have been discovered after or during a snowstorm the first week of November. Many of the Sagebrush Sparrow records at Chatfield Reservoir are recorded after a late fall snowstorm. They were our target birds; neither of which was found.

We did find the Surf Scoter in the extreme northeast corner. Loons were missed both at Chatfield and nearby McLellan Reservoir.

Both a Pacific Loon and Common Loons were relocated at Marston Reservoir (Denver).

Bonaparte's Gulls were still at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe). The Common Loon and Swamp Sparrow were not relocated.

I spent several hours scoping Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe). Rangers were working on the swim beach, therefore no gulls. The southern half of the lake did have hundreds into a thousand gulls swimming around. Nothing uncommon was found.

No loons or scoters were picked out among the hundreds of Gadwalls and Ruddy Ducks.

I then hiked up the western trail to the north end of the dam. Twice as many gulls swam just offshore. Eventually I was able to find a Mew Gull, Bonaparte's Gull, Iceland Gull and Lesser Black-backed Gull.

No loons, scoters or Red-necked Grebe were at the northern end either.

My birding day ended at the First Creek Trail. One of the White-throated Sparrows continued among White-crowned Sparrows and Song Sparrows behind the chain link fence at the southwest corner of the trailhead.

Misses, the Winter Wren and Swamp Sparrow found a few days ago were not relocated.

Note: just before yesterday's snowstorm we found a total of 38 White-tailed Ptarmigan spread over two days between Loveland Ridge and Guanella Pass (Clear Creek County). See website trip blog if interested in details.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] First Creek Trail (Adams/Denver Counties)
Hello cobirders;

I enjoyed this outstanding fall day with a drive around eastern Arapahoe County. My target birds, any longspurs, were not found. A Loggerhead Shrike was along CR 42, east of CR 161.

A late migrating Burrowing Owl was photographed north of the above intersection.

In the late afternoon, I stretched my legs with a walk along the First Creek Trail from 56th avenue (1/2 mile west of Tower Road) to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal fence line and pond.

No birds were seen along the Denver County section. The Adams County section on the other hand was quite interesting.

I hoped to relocate the two White-throated Sparrows reported on Friday 10/26. The first bird found was a Swamp Sparrow. It popped out of the cattails about 60 yards into Adams County (west of Buckley Road).

While trying to see where the Swamp Sparrow flew after disappearing back into the cattails, a Winter Wren popped up and perched on a cattail for 15 seconds or so.

While I listened to the horde of Red-winged Blackbirds at the Pond a 1st year Bald Eagle landed in the cottonwoods west of the fence line.

On the way back to my car, I wandered around the trailhead at Buckley Road. A flock of sparrows was in the weeds south of the fence at the southwest corner.

The flock included fourteen White-crowned Sparrows, three Song Sparrows and an adult White-throated Sparrow.

My birding day ended enjoying the sunset while parked along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams County). No Short-eared Owls appeared tonight.

I did stop at Barr Lake (Adams) and listened for owls (Great Horned Owl or Long-eared Owl) under the waning (83 percent) moon. None called.

Continued Good Birding!

Hello,  

The Pacific Loon and Common Loon at Marston Reservoir were seen from the wildlife circle at south end.  I couldn't find the Red-necked Grebe at Chatfield State Park.  One Common Loon was at South Platte Park Reservoir.

Richard Stevens doesn't always get credit.  Yesterday, he texted at 2:00 pm that the mystery duck at Marston Reservoir was a Ring-necked Duck and not a Tufted Duck.  Good Call Rich!

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek
Hello Rich,

I had better luck at Cherry Creek State Park today.  Shorebirds included Killdeer, Lesser Yellowlegs, Greater Yellowlegs, and a Least Sandpiper.  Gulls included Bonaparte's Gulls, Ring-billed Gulls, California Gulls and a Herring Gull.  An adult Bald Eagle flew over several times and harassed the gulls.  No sparrows, that was strange.  

Terry

Subject: [cobirders] Weld County to Barr Lake (Adams)
Hello cobirders;


Jacob Washburn and I spent the last four days trying to find a Sprague's Pipit lifebird for him. In that, we did not succeed. From my view, the Smith's Longspur we relocated on 10/24 at North Sterling Reservoir was a better find.



On the way home, we birded in Weld County today. Banner Lakes Wildlife Area is closed except for hunters on Saturday, Sunday & Monday. I should have mentioned earlier in the week. Terry Michaels and I have hunting licenses and bird as we walk down to the farthest pond to "hunt". Nothing states that a hunter has to carry a gun!



Anyway, Jacob and scoped Ireland Reservoir #5. Six Buffleheads and eight Canada Geese swam in the middle of the lake. While scoping the cattails we found two Yellow-headed Blackbirds walking at the southwest corner. A Swamp Sparrow popped out of the cattails behind the Yellow-headed Blackbirds.



Ireland Reservoir #1 was slow. We did see a Great Horned Owl and many Red-winged Blackbirds.



At Hudson Fishing Pond, we saw a Hermit Thrush skulking under the willows and cottonwoods at the northwest corner.



A flock of White-crowned Sparrows at Memorial Park, east of the Fishing Pond was accompanied by a White-throated Sparrow.



Box Elder Creek crossing Weld CR 4 had only one Song Sparrow today. On 1/2-1/17/2017, four Rusty Blackbirds wandered along the Creek.



Nearby Horse Creek Reservoir has a low water level. Most of the trees still have leaves and scoping the lake had limited visibility.



After dropping Jacob off to pick up his car at my house, I drove over to BarrLake (Adams). I walked the northern side from mile 6.0 (end of dam) to mile 4.5.



The only shorebirds encountered were eight Killdeer just below the dam. Highlight was a Common Loon just off shore near mile 4.5.



No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams). No Burrowing Owls were found too.



Raptors included a Rough-legged Hawk, two Red-tailed Hawks, two Ferruginous Hawks, a Prairie Falcon and American Kestrel. First drive this fall that a Swainson's Hawk was not found.

Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders,

I couldn't find the White-winged Scoters reported yesterday at Cherry Creek
Reservoir. At least a dozen Bonaparte's Gulls were below the dam. I did
find two of the three White-winged Scoters along the east side of Aurora
Reservoir. Nothing interesting seen at Quincy Reservoir.

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek Trail, Douglas County
While driving back from Colorado Springs by way of Highway 83, I made an
impromptu birding stop at Walker Gravel Pit. I walked the Cherry Creek
trail from there to its southern terminus.



Nothing rare to report, a few interesting birds were found. Two female
Eastern Bluebirds were in the open field north of the footbridge north of
83. A Hermit Thrush (late) was in the trees just north of the trash can.



South of the hwy 86 bridge, a Gray Catbird (late?) was north of the 39.5
mile marker. A Common Raven was in a cottonwood near the end of the trail.



No Winter Wren or Eastern Phoebe, but they were last reported last 10/13.

Subject: [cobirders] Arapahoe & Adams Counties Saturday 10/20/2018
Hello cobirders;

It was another spectacular fall day in Colorado. High temperature was 68 degrees. Winds varied from 8-9 mph with gusts to 15 mph.

I walked into Aurora Reservoir from the South end. Two White-winged Scoters were off Senac Cove along with many American Coots, Ruddy Ducks, Western Grebes, Horned Grebes and Eared Grebes.

The Mew Gull and one of the Iceland Gulls were among several hundred Ring-billed Gulls east of mile 2.5. Dozens of California Gulls and two Herring Gulls were in the same area.

The Common Loon was around mile 4.5. The Pacific Loon was not spotted.

I did not drive around to the west side, inside headed for Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams).

The Surf Scoter was 20 yards off the south end of Lake Ladora. Two Western Grebes and a few Horned & Eared Grebes were also on the lake.

Many shorebirds walked the north shore of Lower Derby Lake. The American Golden-Plover was among Greater Yellowlegs, Lesser Yellowlegs, Long-billed Dowitchers and Killdeer.

The American Golden-Plover eventually flew to the south shore; unfortunately, the bird landed below the sandbar and out of sight.

A Peregrine Falcon circled several times and landed in trees on the north shore. I briefly searched for Red-headed Woodpeckers along the Wildlife Drive and the Swamp Sparrow at Marys Lake. Neither was found.

Cherry Creek Reservoir was my last stop of the day. The Mew Gull was back on the Pelican Bay sand spit. If I had not been watching it for the past month I could not have picked it out of the hundreds of Ring-billed Gulls. Its distinctive 2nd winter pattern has become an easy id now.

I scoped the lake for scoters and loons. No scoters, but I did find the Red-necked Grebe reported yesterday by Betty Glass, Great Find Betty! The bird was in the center of the lake, north of the Mountain Loop, of course will move by tomorrow.

My final stop was Pelican Point. As I walked to the Point, a Harris's Sparrow was spotted in the Russian Olive tree just north of the huge downed tree near the water's edge.

If it is not here tomorrow, I would look in the group of bushes behind the restroom (spot of the Northern Parula (April 2017).

Most shorebirds were quite far away on the southern shore of the lake. I scoped 15 Dowitchers (most likely Long-billed), seven Killdeer, two Greater Yellowlegs, one Lesser Yellowlegs and two peeps.

One plover I watched long enough to determine not a Killdeer. It was too far away to label American Golden-Plover or Black-bellied Plover.

Four American Tree Sparrows and one Song Sparrow wandered along the edge of the willows at Pelican Point.

Photos of the Surf Scoter & Harris's Sparrow (bad light) were put on the Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library; "recent favorite photos" link:

Subject: [cobirders] A Day At Barr Lake (Adams County)
Hello cobirders;

I celebrated this splendid fall day by birding eight hours at Barr Lake (Adams).
The time was split about in half between the south and north sides. Mileage covered from mile 0.5 (Niedrach boardwalk) to mile 4.5 of the north side was 10 miles.

Not much was expected in the way of passerines and that proved accurate.

Shorebirds were too far off the Niedrach Boardwalk for much identification. Fifteen Dowitchers, one Black-bellied Plover and dozens of Killdeer walked the shore south of the boardwalk.

A juvenile Field Sparrow with its pinkish bill, white eye ring and streaked breast was in the thick bushes in the center of the Niedrach loop.

I scoped the many American White Pelicans looking for a Brown Pelican. One should have been blown into Colorado with the storms back east or not.

A flock of fourteen Yellow-rumped Warblers fluttered about at mile 8.8 (Visitor's Center footbridge is 9.0 & 0.0).

Another flock of six Yellow-rumped Warblers, two Black-capped Chickadees and an Orange-crowned Warbler were off the banding station. A lone Hermit Thrush skulked under fallen cottonwoods northwest of the banding station.

The north side of the Lake was a shorebird bonanza. Some of the birds observed included an American Golden-Plover (below the dam south of the old stone house), five Black-bellied Plovers (halfway between the end of dam (mile 6.0) and the disjoint pond at mile 4.5.

Twenty seven Long-billed Dowitchers and two American Avocets probed for food in the pond.

Shorebirds between the pond and dam included two Pectoral Sandpipers, a Stilt Sandpiper, three Least Sandpipers, forty two Wilson's Phalaropes, two Lesser Yellowlegs, one Greater Yellowlegs, and dozens of Killdeer.

Another Hermit Thrush, a Virginia Rail, two Song Sparrows and an unidentified wren were below the dam on the hike back to the Visitor's Center.

Surprisingly no Dark-eyed Juncos, Chipping Sparrows or other sparrows were found.

Raptors seen today included an adult Bald Eagle, two Red-tailed Hawks, two Northern Harriers and a Great Horned Owl.

A Swainson's Hawk was seen along the DIA Owl Loop just south of Barr Lake. No Short-eared Owls were encountered.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Weld County Birding Wednesday
Hello cobirders;

High temperature was 61 degrees today at Hudson. High winds made the day feel quite cold. Anomometer readings were 12-14 mph with gusts to 29 mph in the afternoon.

I walked around Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Weld County) for four hours. Highlight was a female Black-throated Blue Warbler in the windbreak west of Ponds 4 to 3.

An Eastern Bluebird perched on top of an evergreen tree at the windbreak at Pond 8. Only one Long-eared Owl was encountered today.

Ireland Reservoir #5 had few birds. I could not kick up a Swamp Sparrow in the western cattails. Got the same result at Ireland Reservoir #1, no Swamp Sparrows appeared today.

In the afternoon, I visited a friend's ranch (Snowy Owl, March 2012). We drove north of hwy 52 searching for a Burrowing Owl he had last seen two days ago; without success. Several prairie dog villages host Burrowing Owls either side of CR 73, south of I76.

He had a pair of Long-eared Owls nest in his windbreak (Weld). John showed me a photo of a red Fox Sparrow taken 9 days ago. Eastern Bluebirds passed through two weeks ago.

I watched daylight disappear back at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area. No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening. My birding day ended while listening to a Great Horned Owl calling somewhere near Pond 12 area.

Continued Good Birding!
