Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for October 17, 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!

Hello cobirders,


Richard and I went back to Rocky Mountain Arsenal this morning. The Common Loon is still on Lake Ladora. We relocated the Harris's Sparrow at the southeast corner of Marys Lake. The Swamp Sparrow and Sage Thrashers were not found.

Continued Good Birding!

  Hello,
I think Rich was right when he said the Long-tailed Jaeger left Cherry Creek State Park yesterday at 4:30 pm.  I looked for three hours, it was not around.  Birds there included the Red-necked Grebe, the Sabine's Gull, the Lesser Black-backed Gull and one Common Tern.

Subject: [cobirders] Garland Park & Rocky Mountain Arsenal
Hello cobirders;

Our first stop today was Garland Park (Denver County). The Greater White-fronted Goose was swimming with two dozen Canada Geese on the lake at the southwest corner of the Park.

Rebecca and I enjoyed this exquisite fall day at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams County). We circled Lake Ladora continued onto the Mary Lake trail to the Legacy trail.

The Common Loon was still on Lake Ladora at 3:00 pm. Regrettably, it stayed along the eastern side and quite far from any path. We only captured a few witness shots.

Marys Lake was interesting. I played a Swamp Sparrow recording at the western cattails. Two Song Sparrows flew out. Then a Lincoln's Sparrow emerged. Finally, a Swamp Sparrow popped up and perched on a leafless willow. It even briefly sang!

I again played a recording at the eastern willows and cattails. A skulky bird moved about; we thought perhaps a second Swamp Sparrow. After 15-20 minutes, it came out of the willows at the southeast end of the boardwalk. It was a Harris's Sparrow!

Afterwards we drove the Wildlife Drive. Deer, both White-tailed and Mule were numerous in many fields. We missed the Burrowing Owl that had been around for months.

Both Red-tailed Hawks and a Ferruginous Hawk stood on the prairie dog village at mile 8. Once we left the bison enclosure, two Sage Thrashers were observed on the western fence. They were about 100 yards south of the most southwestern cattle guard.

We returned to Lake Ladora and again found the Common Loon swimming along the eastern shore, far from any good photo op.

Misses: no Red-headed Woodpeckers, Burrowing Owls or uncommon passerines found today.

Continued Good Birding!

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

I navigated the 28-mile trip south to Cherry Creek Reservoir in the afternoon. Construction on Tower Road and just too many cars makes the drive absolutely no fun nowadays.

Anemometer readings were 16-17 mph with gusts to 22 mph. An hour later on, the readings equaled 18-19 mph with gusts to 26 mph.

I managed to find a cubbyhole below the parking area for the tower dam and scoped the lake for the next two hours. Peering into the shiny water (southern sun) from the north side was not the best of views.

The Jaeger chased after gulls first off the Lake Loop and later below the dam. I caught several glimpses of the Red-necked Grebe among Western Grebes in the middle of the lake.

After being hit in the head with a five-foot branch, I decided to check on a flock of 16 shorebirds that flew below the Lake Loop and landed at Pelican Point. I was fortunate that it was cold which forced me to wear a fur-lined hat. Even so, I got a sizeable bump on the top of my head.

Gulls at Pelican Point were mostly Ring-billed, a dozen California and two Herring Gulls, no Sabine's Gull. The shorebirds turned out to be Long-billed Dowitchers.

As I returned to the boat ramp parking area, a Sabine's Gull flew almost over my head. Where it came from, I do not know.

Now at the Lake Loop I set up my scope next to the willows along the bank. Winds had died down to 11-12 mph. It was now 4:45pm and the Jaeger was not relocated in the next hour. Where did it go? I scoped the water and could not find it swimming around.

The light is better from this side of the lake especially in the afternoon. I did get good looks at the Red-necked Grebe, which was just a tad closer than from the other side. One Common Tern flew by several times!

Then I parked near the cattail field at Lake View Drive and Cherry Creek until well after sunset. No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening, also missed the resident Long-eared Owls along the gun shooting range road.

Continued Good Birding!

Hello cobirders,


Dave King sent a photo of a Red-necked Grebe Friday at Cherry Creek Reservoir. I did not get in until 3:00am last night to examine photo. I received a second hand report that Glenn Walbek relocated the bird this morning and that a Ben Sampson is looking at a jaeger there.

From: Dave King <daking55dk...> [cobirders] <cobirders-noreply...>
Subject: [cobirders] Jackon Lake State Park, Morgan County
  The birds at Jackson Lake State Park kept me busy today.  Two minutes after getting out of my car my first bird was a Long eared Owl.  Before the day was over, six were seen.  I parked at Pelican campgrounds and bushwacked south.   The best bird of the day was 60 yards south of the parking lot.  I recognized a cuckoo right off.  It took 20 minutes for better looks.  It was a Yellow billed Cuckoo.  It's getting late for them right?
Yellow rumped Warbler count was 183.  A Townsend's Warbler was with them.  Many Robins, two Ruby crowned Kinglets one Common Grackle and one Hermit Thrush were between Pelican and Cove campgrounds.  A pair of Mountain Chickadees was a little surprising.
Many birds were along the western shore of Jackson Lake between Pelican  and Cove cgs.  Just south of the wooden fence section at campground 89 were a Western Wood-pewee, Forty two Yellow rumped, 21 White crowned Sparrows, one adult White throated Sparrow and an adult and immature Harris's Sparrows.
I never found the Red Phalarope or Swamp Sparrow. While waiting for sunset, I walked Andrick Wildlife Area.  A Swamp Sparrow came out of the cattails.
At sunset, I scoped the hills north of the campgrounds.   No Short eared Owls came out.  I heard both a Great Horned Owl and Eastern Screech Owl back at the campgrounds.
Other birds seen throughout the day included two Bald Eagles, thirty two Sandhill  Cranes flying over, twenty eight Wild Turkeys at Cove cgs, one Lesser Black backed Gull, two Herring Gulls, many California & Ring billed Gulls, many Western Grebes.
Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Arapahoe County on Thursday
Hello A circuit around Arapahoe CountyThursday and few birds seen.  Most of thegulls at Aurora Reservoir were below the bench at mile 2.5.  I walked in from the south side gate.  Gulls included a Sabine's Gull, two HerringGulls, dozens of California Gulls and hundreds of Ring-billed Gulls.  Many more were out on the reservoir.  No loons or scoters were found. Quincy Reservoir had almost nogulls and nothing rare. Another Sabine's Gull was offpelican point at Cherry Creek State Park.  Noloons, scoters or rare grebes were found. I had driven the Jewell-Yale Loopand found only three Vesper Sparrows. The low bird count discouraged any drive farther into eastern Arapahoe County. Good birding! Dave KingDenver

Subject: [cobirders] Gulls East of Denver Today, Adams & Arapahoe Counties
Hello cobirders;

Rebecca and I scoped some reservoirs today for jaegers, loons and uncommon ducks on this snowy day. We had better luck with gulls.

The Lesser Black-backed Gull was still at Barr Lake (Adams). We could not pick out any Sabine's Gulls.

When we stopped at Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) to scope the lake from the eastern side of the parking area north of the swim beach, a juvenile Sabine's Gull stood on the shore below us. Fourteen Long-billed Dowitchers were there too.

The highlight was a Mew Gull less than 10 yards off shore. We obtained superb views and comparisons with nearby Ring-billed Gulls. Not done yet, a Lesser Black-backed Gull was another 10 yards behind the Mew Gull.

Quincy Reservoir (Arapahoe) on the other hand had few gulls or birds.

Our final stop was Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe). A Sabine's Gull was among hundreds of gulls standing on Pelican Point.

We watched all the lakes for any jaegers chasing gulls. Regrettably, no jaegers, loons or rare ducks were discovered.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Mostly Douglas County, few birds
Hello cobirders;

Paul and I drove to Rampart Range Road and hwy 67 several hours before sunrise. No owls were found today. We did find a male American Three-toed Woodpecker at the northeast corner of the intersection.

On the return trip, we searched for the Lewis's Woodpecker reported at the Walker Gravel Pit (Douglas). It was not found. Few birds were encountered in the hike from the gravel pit to the south end of the Cherry Creek trail.

On the southern route, we found a lingering House Wren near the yellow "windy trail" sign. At the footbridge over Cherry Creek, a Gray Catbird was seen under the short tree at the southeast corner. Farther south a Hermit Thrush was under the brush where the trail splits a grove of trees in two.

No additional birds were seen all the way to the end of the trail. On the hike, back we tried to relocate the Hermit Thrush. A flock of six Black-capped Chickadees kept flying across the trail. On one pass, a Nashville Warbler followed them.

We walked to the western end of Walker Road and then north to the first ranch. The many birds around the ranch house turned out to be European Starlings. Back at the end of Walker Road, four Western Bluebirds landed on the telephone wires.

No Lewis's Woodpecker was found. We passed by Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) on the way home. A quick scope of the scuba beach and swim beach did not find the previously reported Black-bellied Plover.

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


Continued Good Birding!

Hey Rich,

We returned to First Creek trails today. Few birds found in the 14+ mph winds. Best was an Eastern Phoebe first seen on south side of First Creek 20 yards west of Buckley in Adams County. It flew to north side of Creek 10 yards east of Buckley where we left it. No kingbirds or Barn Owls again.

Hello cobirders,


Notice to "Colorado Field Notes" subscribers, "where is Octobers issue" Due to a computer crash just before we were backing up the file (right), we have to reassemble the issue. Some photos were lost and we are waiting for the photographers to sent replacements. The issue will be sent out tomorrow.

Subject: [cobirders] Rocky Mt Arsenal and First Creek Trails
I walked about five miles inside the arsenal then another couple outside at First Creek trails. Not a lot of birds but a couple of good ones seen. At the outlet grove below Havana Ponds a pair of Wood Ducks and a Northern Water thrush. A Swamp Sparrow came out of cattails at the Rod and Gun Club Pond. At first I thought it was a Chipping Sparrow so did not get my camera out. It stayed on the cottonwood limb at the south side of the blind for 3-4 minutes. Three Sharp shinned Hawks kept circling low over Locust groves along Woodland trail and Rod and Gun Club trail. A Rock Wren was at cement wall at First Creek and 64th. Winds were calm until 3:30 when front blew by. Found few birds along First Creek trail. No Broad winged Hawk or Kingbirds or Barn Owls today

Subject: [cobirders] Hiking the First Creek Trail, Denver to Adams County
Hello birders,
Started at Tower Roadand First Creek, Denver County and walked to Buckley Road.  Lots of hawks out, three adult, four juvenile Red-tailed Hawk. A FerruginousHawk flew over horse corral and landed north First Creek.  Sparrowsaround woodpile at Buckley Road and First Creek, Adams County were 47 ChippingSparrows 3 Clay-colored Sparrows, 2 Brewer's Sparrows, 1 Grasshopper Sparrowand 26 Dark-eyed Juncos mostly pink sided.  A Rock Wren was eating a wormon the new First Creek gate at Buckley.  Continued west, a House Wren wasin nettles group along First Creek where it enters cattails around pond atRocky Mountain Arsenal fence.  Two White-crowned Sparrows and aGreen-tailed Towhee were along edge of cattails.  A Broad-winged Hawk wasin trees about 40 yards west of pond and fence. I continued to old eagle watchbunker and then east to Buckley Road.  Many Vesper Sparrows were along trailand Buckley, Adams County.  An adultand three juvenile Red-tailed Hawks stood on ground east of Buckley and southof outhouse.  Another Ferruginous Hawk and a Prairie Falcon flew alongBuckley, back and forth between Denver and Adams Counties. At the four groups of bushes between the blue outhouse and the old fenced inelectric pump, Denver County a small robinsized bird with rusty tail flew out and back into bushes.  It was toosmall for a flicker.  Thrush, but I did not see it again.  ElevenWhite-crowned Sparrows flew between bushes.  While trying to see if any ofthem were interior west, I noticed a White-throated Sparrow.  A HermitThrush came out of willows along north side of First Creek at 50 yards west of Pena Blvd. Back along First Creek Trail heading toward Tower, Denver Countya flock of 34 White-crowned Sparrows, only two adults were in green Bush atnortheast corner of the fence between the light rail and horse corrals. After a 20 minute wait or so, a Harris's Sparrow popped out of the bushes whenthe whole flock flew south to the high weeds between the corral fence and lightrail fence.
I never foundthe Cassin's Kingbird, three Western Kingbirds and Sage Thrasher reportedearlier today.  No Barn Owls found.  I think Broad-winged Hawk wassame one reported on Sunday in Denver County.  Now it isin Adams County.

Subject: [cobirders] Slow afternoon at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe)
Hello cobirders;

I passed through Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County) and found few passerines around. I do not believe it was a result of my new binoculars. Tinted for low light, 30 X 60, only $1 at the Dollar Store (left my binoculars at home); there just was not many landbirds around today.

Hundreds of Gulls were on Pelican Point. Majority were Ring-billed with a few California Gulls and a couple of hybrids. Two Common Terns were among them. No shorebirds were found anywhere.

A walk from the East Shades Picnic area to the Dam and back found only a few Black-billed Magpies. A few additional gulls were at the bird platform, Prairie Loop. A Western Wood-pewee was at the southeast corner of the Lake Loop. No birds on the poles surrounding the southwest marina, it was a slow afternoon.

Continued Good Birding!

Hey Rich,

We looked for the Red Phalarope at Chatfield and South Platte Park Res, not found. The strong winds made it difficult to find any little bird swimming on the res.

The Black Phoebe stayed in willows at the dried pond at the Deer Creek inlet

We saw the Sabine's Gull trying to fly around in the wind. Missed the Common Terns.

Subject: [cobirders] Chatfield Reservoir On Friday, Jefferson/Douglas Counties
Hello cobirders;

My goal Friday was to find the Red Phalarope at Chatfield Reservoir if it was still there. Four hours later, it was still not found. Tomorrow it is time for someone to show I missed it.

Three Turkey Vultures flew overhead at the entrance to Chatfield Reservoir (Jefferson/Douglas Counties). I stopped briefly at the swim beach and observed no evidence that the phoebes remained.

Chatfield Reservoir was scoped first from the Heronry Overlook, no phalaropes. A White-breasted Nuthatch noisily worked the pine tree right off the overlook. It worked from top toward the bottom as I waited to take a photo. The nuthatch flew before reaching the lower branches; that is when I noticed an adult Sharp-shinned Hawk at eye level just 5 yards away.

Next the lake was scoped from the handicapped fishing dock, the point along the lake trail, then the Plum Creek delta, the picnic area across from the rookery on the west side of the lake and finally the swim beach.

While scoping the lake at the handicapped fishing dock, one juvenile Sabine's Gull and later one Common Tern flew over the marina sand spit.

Resigned to not finding the Red Phalarope I walked the swim beach north to the deer creek inlet. At the second dried pond north of the swim beach, a bird flew about with nineteen Yellow-rumped Warblers. It flicked its tail and from the far distance, I thought maybe it was one of the phoebes. Closer looks proved it a Palm Warbler.

Farther north at the deer creek inlet, a lone bird hawked insects. It was the Black Phoebe. I put photos on the Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library.

As I returned to the swim beach parking area, the flock of warblers worked their way south along the shore.

Another hour was spent at nearby South Platte Park Reservoir (Arapahoe/Jefferson). The Red Phalarope was not found there.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Interesting Afternoon at Barr Lake (Adams County)
Hello cobirders;

Jacob Washburn joined me today; we continued our WIAs bird count. Tuesday and Wednesday my birding partner was Terry Michaels. Temperatures reached into the 50s; winds were 11-12 mph with gusts to 15 mph.

Afterward I stretched my legs at Barr Lake (Adams County). It turned out to be a good choice even with lack shorebirds around.

I scoped the shores from below the Niedrach boardwalk to the Pioneer boardwalk; one Killdeer was the only shorebird.

Walking back from the Niedrach boardwalk I observed the Eastern Phoebe first discovered last Saturday! I scoped the island off the Niedrach trail and found an adult Sabine's Gull.

Perhaps it is the same bird recently photographed at Adams County fairgrounds? The Sabine's Gull found by Terry Michaels on 9/19 was a juvenile. When the bird flew, I was able to get two Georgia birders on the bird with its distinctive wing pattern.

While walking out to the sand spit northwest of the banding station, I found two juvenile Sabine's Gulls! I will try and added photos to the CoBus photo library soon.

Again, no shorebirds were on the sand spit. The adult Sabine's Gull had landed on the southern end of the sand spit. The juveniles walked the northern end of it.

I ran out of time for a search of the Fox Sparrow reported a couple of days earlier. Two Wilson's Warblers and two Ruby-crowned Kinglets fluttered around the willows at the banding station.

Owls found included two Barn Owls and a Long-eared Owl.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Saturday Birding In Arapahoe County
Hello cobirders;

I enjoyed the cool and rainy day by birding in Arapahoe County. First stop was Aurora Reservoir. No birds were on the scuba beach shore, so I drove to the south side and walked in to the reservoir (round trip about 2 miles).

Among the many gulls on the shore at mile 2.5 were a Lesser Black-backed Gull and a Sabine's Gull. Two Bonaparte's Gulls flew around Lone Tree Cove (off mile 3.0).

Next, I hiked the first mile of Quincy Reservoir. A Hermit Thrush was in the brush south of the two tan houses with solar panels.

A Long-billed Dowitcher walked the shore along the island to the south.

Two Blue Jays made quite a racket in the willows/cottonwoods at the dry canal south of the brown house with glassed in porch. A Long-eared Owl was found deep in the underbrush.

Three Say's Phoebes were encountered as I continued east to mile marker 1.0.

My last stop of the day was Cherry Creek Reservoir. It was pouring rain when I arrived. Like Terry Michaels I found most of the roads blocked due to a weekend demonstration (continues Sunday).

I walked in from the Shop Creek parking area to Pelican Point. The only shorebirds were two Killdeer, one Baird's Sandpiper and one Least Sandpiper. The Semipalmated Plover may still be there as part of the shore is behind willows.

Soaking wet, I retreated to home, skipping the Prairie Loop and southwest marina.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Cherry Creek State Park update, Arapahoe County
Hello birders,

Cherry Creek was a mess this afternoon. Many roads were closed due to some
type of show and tell put on by the DOW. I managed to walk to Pelican
Point where no shorebirds except Killdeer were. A Lesser Black backed Gull
was at the southwest marina. I couldn't find the Winter Wren at the
Prairie Loop.

Good Birding

Subject: [cobirders] Barr Lake (Eastern Phoebe, American Golden-Plover) and Cherry Creek Reservoir (Semipalmated Plover, Sabine's Gull, Winter Wren)
Hello cobirders;


After wandering for a week or so back and forth along the eastern Colorado border in search of migrating birds, I birded around Denver Friday afternoon. At Barr Lake (Adams County) an Eastern Phoebe was around the Visitor's Center footbridge. The American Golden-Plover was seen from the boat ramp to the banding station shore.


I picked up Rebecca and we passed through Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) on our way to dinner. At Pelican Point we photographed a Semipalmated Plover and counted 34 American Avocets. A Sabine's Gull was with a dozen Ring-billed Gulls off the Bird Platform. A Turkey Vulture flew over the west wings picnic area.


Best bird was a Winter Wren at the Bird Platform area. After trying to relocate it for 15 minutes, it allowed us to watch it for 5 minutes!


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] explanation of some bird sightings
Hello cobirders,


Some explanations of recent bird sightings.


On 9/13, a female Painted Bunting was reported near the teepee at Barr Lake State Park. On the same day a Varied Thrush was reported at the boat ramp picnic area. Neither bird was found the next day.


Both Clay-colored Sparrows and Brewer's Sparrows are not considered rare birds and therefore have not been listed on our RBA. Thanks for all who reported both species; all sightings are added to our database!


During migration both are found often. Between 9/13 to 9/15, both sparrows were found at Barr Lake (while searching for the above birds), First Creek Trail west of Buckley Road and in the Rocky Mountain Arsenal.


Good fortune in looking for them!

Subject: [cobirders] Sabine's Gull still at Adams County fairgrounds.
Hello,

The adult Sabine's Gull in breeding plumage is still at Adams County fairgrounds. It stayed near the solar panel at north end of the lake. Sharp looking bird. Unfortunately it did not fly. I would have liked to see the wing pattern.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Rocky Mt Arsenal Adams County
A two hour drive through the Arsenal found two Burrowing Owls along the Wildlife drive. They were just west of the broken stone building which is east of mile 5. One Sage Thrasher was along the Rattlesnake Hill loop. Five Say's Phoebe's seen. Another six Phoebe's were along the Bluestem trail hike. Many Vesper Sparrows and one Brewer's Sparrows found. No Red headed Woodpeckers.

2 eastern phoebe were also in the trees in near the swim beach area near where the creek drains into the resevoir. Pretty cool to see wood pee wee, eastern and black phoebe, made a nice flycatcher compare and contrast.

Subject: [cobirders] Black phoebe Chatfield
Since it was reported the black phoebe was still here yesterday I thought I'd give it one shot. As of 8:16am it's still here working the beach. From the swim beach parking lot I headed left around the point and it was just near the mud flat area sitting on the rocks and then back and forth in the trees. Easiest chase I've ever had, took all of 10 minutes.
