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 birders,

Birding in Arapahoe County was slow this morning. The two Long-eared Owls
are still at Cherry Creek State Park. Aurora Reservoir was almost
completely snow and ice covered. A small sliver of open water had many
ducks. They were too close together to find the White-winged Scoters and
Long-tailed Ducks if still around. A Glaucous Gull was easy to pick out
from the hundreds of Ring-billed Gulls. Everything else was too far away.

I could not find a Swamp Sparrow along Coal Creek at Pronghorn Natural Area.

Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Arapahoe County Sunday
Hello cobirders;

I did not feel like driving 30+ miles to Ketring Park to miss the Brant three days in a row. Although Terry Michaels called to tell me it was there this morning. I missed it by 10 minutes yesterday and several hours on Friday. Instead, I went to Aurora Reservoir by way of Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).

I did not find the Glaucous Gull reported early. A Common Loon was the consolation.

Aurora Reservoir had more birds. The four Long-tailed Ducks were together off pavilion #4 although quite far offshore.

Scanning the lake four times, I finally found one of the two White-winged Scoters. I have not seen both in awhile, hope nothing has happened to the other one.

Several hundred gulls were on the swim beach ice shelf. One Iceland Gull and two Herring Gulls were among the many Ring-billed Gulls.

I noticed one of the gulls smaller than the Ring-billed and darker mantled. It was a Mew Gull! A Glaucous Gull towered over the other gulls. Perhaps it spends its mornings at Cherry Creek Reservoir and flies the eight miles east to Aurora Reservoir in the afternoon?

An adult Ferruginous Hawk flew across the length of the lake made a dive down to the gulls and then continued south.

Forty three Pronghorn wandered across the new Pronghorn Natural Area north of Aurora Reservoir.

I drove down the entrance road of the discipline school east of Aurora Reservoir (sorry forgot the name). I hoped the Northern Goshawk that has been reported at the Reservoir had perched in the cottonwoods along Coal Creek. It was not found.

An adult Bald Eagle was in the cottonwood with nest along the Yale-Jewell Loop (Arapahoe). Seventeen Horned Larks fluttered around the same area.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Singing Am. Dipper at Lake Estes, Larimer Co.
Enjoying a nice winter visit to Estes Park, I had a very windy walk at Lake Estes this afternoon. Just east of the Matthews-Reeser Bird Sanctuary, in the Big Thompson right by trail by the Lake, I had a male American Dipper singing his heart out. This is the first time I've heard one sing. A real treat.

Subject: [cobirders] Arapahoe County: Cherry Creek Reservoir & Aurora Reservoir
Hello cobirders;

Super winter day in Colorado, temperatures reached a comfortable 63 degrees.. Warmer temperatures resulted because of the 11-12 mph winds from the south-southeast. Anemometer readings reached 25 mph with several gusts to 37 mph.

While out doing chores and having dinner, we passed through Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County). Today the two Long-eared Owls were out in the open. I put several photos on the Colorado Birding Society's photo library (recent favorite photos link)
http://coloradobirdingsociety.net

Later we scoped Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) for an hour or so. The high winds produced high waves making finding waterfowl difficult.

Eventually we relocated the two female Long-tailed Ducks however missed the two juveniles. One of the White-winged Scoters was also found.

South-southeastern winds may have pushed many waterfowl into the northwestern corner of the lake. We could not see about 1/6 of the reservoir from our vantage point.

Two hundred + Ring-billed Gulls were the only species on the swim beach ice shelf. We did see one adult and one first winter Lesser Black-backed Gull swimming east of pavilion #4.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Nice Birds at Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe)
Hello cobirders,


Rebecca Kosten took me over to Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) this afternoon. I still have not figured out how to drive with broken bones in my foot.


What a beautiful day. In spite of overcast skies, temperatures reached 60 degrees. Winds were calm and the reservoir looked like a mirror.


The two White-winged Scoters were in the center of the lake off the Pavilion #4 (upper swim beach parking area). Even closer, the four Long-tailed Ducks were all together in one photo shot! A Glaucous Gull was quite far off shore. I had heard of it wintering at Aurora Reservoir; this is the first time for me to see it.


Hundreds of Ring-billed Gulls, a couple of Herring Gulls, at least one California Gull and one Lesser Black-backed Gull stood on the melting ice shelf near the swim beach.


No Short-eared Owls appeared tonight when we drove the DIA Owl Loop (Adams/Denver)


Continued Good Birding!

It seems the window of opportunity of late is 7-9AM along the frontage road north of Prospect Road. He was present for me (closest I've seen) at 815-830AM just at the curve east. Two other birders got great views as well.

Hi all

I commute by where the Harris's Hawk has been seen most mornings since he has been around ... today (8:15AM) he was perched nicely just off the frontage road north of Prospect Road and just before it curves east on low fence post.

Subject: [cobirders] Yellow-billed Loon, White-winged Scoter S.Platte Park resr still at dusk
Hi all,
This late afternoon, Saturday, after Denise had done her presentation at the AAA travel show at Mile High, we headed down 85 to South Platte Park Resr and arrived just in time to enjoy watching the Yellow-billed loon and the White-winged Scoter, which were both still on the central part of the reservoir (Arapahoe) at dusk. The loon again favouring the north end, and the scoter out in the middle. Nice views of two great birds!

Best wishes

Subject: [cobirders] Yellow-billed Loon, White-winged Scoter S.Platte Park resr still, (Arapahoe) Harris's Sparrow Denver County
Hi all,
This morning, Saturday, the Yellow-billed loon and the White-winged Scoter, both still on east side of South Platte Park reservoir (Arapahoe) early morning. Watched the scoter come up with a Crayfish, but it got stolen by an adult Ring-billed Gull.

Yesterday the Harriss Sparrow and a White-winged Junco were still at 1st Creek, 50 yards west (downstream) of the Buckley Road bridge early afternoon (Denver County)

Best wishes

Originally sent this yesterday to cobirders, but it seems to have disappeared into the ether,
So here goes again, with a modified subject line

Hi all

Despite being insanely busy, have managed to snatch some time to go birding this last week
Some of the highlights

Grand Junction Wildlife Area (Mesa) Thursday (thanks Mike, Eileen)
White-throated Sparrow 1
Northern Harrier 1
Evening Grosbeak 1

Horsethief Canyon (Mesa) Thursday
Least Sandpiper 7
American Pipit 1
Wilsons Snipe 5
Killdeer 3
Rough-legged Hawk 1

Carbondale Coryell Ranch (Garfield) Thursday
BARROWS GOLDENEYE 11

Carbondale - Powers art centre (Garfield) ongoing
Rough-legged hawk 1-2 (still today, Sunday 28)

Snowmass Ski Area (Pitkin)
100+ Brown-capped Rosy Finches - most days latest Wednesday
Porcupine on 17th

Carbondale - Crystal River valley by Hwy133 (Garfield/Pitkin County line) most days but none Sat or Sun
Snow Goose 1-2
Canada Geese up to 700

No matter how dry you think it is here, just be glad you dont live in Cape Town, South Africa..
Looking very likely to be the first major city in the world to run out of water in just 10 weeks or less

Good birding all
Best wishes

Hello

The Yellow billed Loon is still at South Platte Park Reservoir.  We couldn't make it over yesterday so do not know when the White-winged Scoter departed?  It was not around today.
