Subject: [cobirders] Colorado Rare Bird Alert for May 23, 2018
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

Subject: [cobirders] Barr Lake and First Creek Trail Birding 5/19/2018
Hello cobirders;

Returned to Denver and went to bed around 7:00am and back out birding at 1:00pm. Temperatures only reached 52 degrees today. Winds were 8-9 mph with gusts to 14 mph. It rained off and on all afternoon.

I walked from the Barr Lake Visitor's Center footbridge (mile 0.0/9.0) to the boat ramp (7.5), returned and continued to mile 0.5.

Kingbirds, Eastern outnumbered Western, Bullock's Orioles, House Wrens, Yellow Warblers, hundreds of Red-winged Blackbirds and more Cliff Swallows that I have ever seen in one place were scattered along the trail.

The pair of Osprey was on their nesting platform. A Warbling Vireo was west of the banding station while a Red-eyed Vireo was just east. A Gray-cheeked Thrush at mile 8.0 was the highlight.

I picked up Rebecca and we headed to the First Creek Trail. We enter the trail from 56th avenue and not Buckley Road (more on that later).

Eventually we found five kingbirds in Denver County (east of Buckley) and eleven (west of Buckley). We did not find one that we could call a Cassin's Kingbird. Red-tailed Hawk nests were in both counties; a Swainson's Hawk nest is in Adams County.

A Red-eyed Vireo was just east of the Light rail bridge. A rufous colored thrush briefly came out of the willows about 30 yards east of the Denver County trailhead. Unfortunately, it was not relocated.

We stood around the trailheads for 15 minutes or so to see if the Harris's Sparrow was still around. It was not found. I would hear after getting home that a Northern Mockingbird and Vermilion Flycatcher were somewhere north of there.

We continued to the Adams County Pond along the First Creek Trail. A male Blue Grosbeak was perched on a rabbit brush about 20 yards east of the pond..

And here is where it got weird. I heard back at home that the male Vermilion Flycatcher and a Northern Mockingbird were seen around the trees at Buckley Road and the 64th avenue area.

Rebecca and I watched the (a) male Vermilion Flycatcher hawking bugs from the chain link fence about 25 yards south of the Pond. It was watched from 4:50pm to 5:00pm. I remember the time because we had to pick up a friend at DIA at 6:00pm. We scheduled out time to meet the deadline.

So...did the Vermilion Flycatcher fly from Buckley & 64th and back to the pond? Less likely odds, are there two Vermilion Flycatchers?

I also heard about a second Northern Mockingbird along Buckley, south of the First Creek Trailhead. We never passed that spot and missed that Northern Mockingbird.

Back at home, reading the Vermilion Flycatcher and Northern Mockingbird at 64th avenue in the morning, I decided to return. This time I parked at Buckley and hiked to 64th avenue, then took the trail west to the Adams County Pond.

It was raining quite hard when I arrived at Buckley & 64th avenue. No Vermilion Flycatcher or Northern Mockingbird was found.

The trip would not be useless. Two Lark Sparrows and a Clay-colored Sparrow walked along the dirt track. Half a dozen Western Kingbirds hawked bugs.

A Cassin's Vireo was in the cottonwoods about 20 yards east of the closed green gate by the pond. No Vermilion Flycatcher was found this time at the pond.

Continuing back east, a male Black-headed Grosbeak and Black-crowned Night-Heron were 50 yards south of the pond.

A flock of birds was in the Russian Olive trees where the east-west trail has a huge bend to the north. This loose flock had a pair of Black-capped Chickadees, a Cassin's Vireo and Plumbeous Vireo.

A second male Black-headed Grosbeak was on the fence 50 yards north of the Buckley Road parking area.

Where the Vermilion Flycatcher is/was, I did not discover.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Trip Results: Prairie Wonders of the Pawnee
Hi all

Some may have viewed this weekend's weather as "gloomy" for birding. For us it turned out fabulous for birding--it started as cloudy, chilly, was misting throughout the morning and eventually the misting stopped, the temperatures warmed a bit and the cloud cover remained leaving us a very enjoyable day of birding.

We saw a total of 112 species, highlights being the following (full list further below):

Subject: [cobirders] Vermilion Flycatcher Photos and Northern Waterthrush count along First Creek Trail, Sunday 5/13/2018
Hello cobirders;


I put photos of the First Creek Trail Vermilion Flycatcher on the Colorado Birding Society's photo library "recent favorite photos" link


I thought about it and believe the Adams County Northern Waterthrushes were the same bird. The bird disappeared to the west in the direction of the first sighting. The Denver County Northern Waterthrush on the other hand, could not have flown that far west. For my personal records, I recorded the sightings as two Northern Waterthrushes, one in each county, Denver & Adams.


Many other photos taken will have to wait for another day.


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Another superb birding day; Vermilion Flycatcher, Northern Waterthrushes & Chestnut-sided Warbler Sunday 5/13
Hello cobirders;

Terry Michaels and I conducted a spring count at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Weld) this morning. The few birds in order encountered were a dozen Yellow-rumped Warblers, a pair of Spotted Towhees, one Gray Catbird, over two dozen Robins, two Red-tailed Hawks, two American Kestrels, a Great Horned Owl and a Barn Owl. Note: the Wildlife Area north of Hwy 52 in closed until July 15. Hence the bird count was south of the Hwy.

After we split up, I decided to do my annual one-man spring count along the First Creek Trail. I have been bushwhacking First Creek east of Buckley Road (Denver County) since 1992. The Adams County section only opened up a couple of years ago.

In order encountered, starting from 56th avenue at the horse corrals (Denver County): Yellow-rumped Warblers, one Red-eyed Vireo, a pair of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Robins, Red-tailed Hawk (on nest), House Wren, Brewer's Sparrows, one Clay-colored Sparrow, two Chipping Sparrows, one male Bullock's Oriole, one Western Kingbird, and one Northern Waterthrush.

The Northern Waterthrush was approximately 40 yards east of Buckley Road. The Red-eyed Vireo was just east of Pena Blvd.

In Adams County: White-crowned Sparrows (missed, Harris's Sparrow, either county), Northern Waterthrush (20 yards upstream of the narrow eight foot cement structure), 38 Chipping Sparrows, Green-tailed Towhee, Marsh Wren, four House Wrens, Great Horned Owl (dove toward me out of cottonwood when I pshing at Marsh Wren), another Northern Waterthrush (under willows that hang over First Creek when gravel trail turns from west to north), three Lincoln's Sparrows, and more White-crowned Sparrows.

Highlight of the hike was a male Vermilion Flycatcher. A text had said that a Vermilion Flycatcher was found on Rocky Mountain Arsenal. Not knowing where, I had hoped it might show up along the eastern border. Later I read that I had relocated at this morning's location, the southeast corner of the little pond just outside the eastern fence line.

Also around the pond: a pair of Spotted Towhees, a pair of Eastern Kingbirds, one Western Kingbird, two House Wrens, nine Yellow-rumped Warblers (mostly Audubon), two House Finches and a Hermit Thrush.

On the walk back to my vehicle: Western Wood-pewee (one each, Adams & Denver Counties), another Hermit Thrush (Adams), and a strange calling bird that I recorded and will have to look at spectrograms. It sounded like a Great Crested Flycatcher, which I doubt, would be in this area. However, Barr Lake has at least six records, Cherry Creek Reservoir at least one record and the Rocky Mountain Arsenal one record.

Back at my car, I received a phone call about a Chestnut-sided Warbler at Belmar Historic Park. Two hours before sunset, I headed that way. The Chestnut-sided Warbler was above the pussy willows at the horse bridge. I took photos at 7:30 pm, my camera did focus on the bird, however hand held shutter speed was 1/13 second. I do not expect more than witness photos.

My Vermilion Flycatcher photos should be much better and will be posted on the Colorado Birding Society's photo library "most recent favorite photos" later tonight.

We ate dinner with Bill Cryder. A Common Poorwill called from his lilac bushes for the second night in a row (Centennial yard, Arapahoe County).

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Common Poorwill singing in Aurora, Arapahoe County
Hello, Richard Stevens and Rebecca Kosten came over for dinner. I
took advantage of his policy, I will buy the meat if you barbecue it.
For the second night a Common Poorwill called from 9:00 to 10:00 pm.
I have no trees only a row of lilac bushes along my back fence.
Tomorrow we will look in the bushes for the bird. I live near Aurora
Reservoir.

Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Possible Ferruginous Hawk in Aurora, not likely
Hello cobirders,


After the CoBus group split up this afternoon, after a trip to Reynolds Park, Richard walked around the Mt. Nebo Cemetery area. A possible Ferruginous Hawk sighting was this morning. A pair of Swainson's Hawks are in Nome Park which is just south of the Cemetery. Richard's camera has wifi and he sent in photos. I posted them on the Colorado Birding Society's website, "Recent Favorite Photos link". No Ferruginous Hawk seen in the hour Richard walked around.


Nome Park is bordered by east 13th avenue on the north, Peoria Street on the east, east 11th avenue on the south and Nome street on the west. Mt. Nebo Cemetery is just north of east 13th avenue. A funeral was on going this afternoon and Richard skipped birding there. The Cemetery has a nice bird checklist that Richard first started in 1995. Unfortunately Nome Park and Mt Nebo Cemetery now have 300+ new apartments at the northeast corner.


Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Jaeger Species [Larimer]
Hi all

Secondhand report from one of our research scientists (an excellent birder, too):
"I saw a Jaeger yesterday in Ft Collins near ELC along Ziegler, I couldn't stop but it was dark above and lighter underneath the tow tail feathers were short." In talking with him it was flying around the pond on the curve at Environmental Road and Drake Ave intersection going east on Drake (from Timberline), south of Water Treatment plant.



Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Hi all

This morning, 4 Marbled Godwit .3m on Weld CR 13 north of intersection of Weld CR 86 and Weld CR 13 in large playa/pond on east. This playa/pond has breached its banks with recent rains and has nice flooded fields around it as well. Also, had lots of Wilson's Phalaropes, some American Avocets, and a few "peeps" too far away to ID on east side of playa/pond.

Other items of note:
Walked Greeley's Poudre River Trail from Island Grove to 25th St (2.0 miles)--got 40 species nothing uncommon My Nunn yard had banner day over weekend for "sparrow" family species (12): Green-tailed and Spotted Towhee, Vesper (lots), Chipping (lots), Clay-colored (lots), Brewer's (lots), Lark (lots), Lincoln's, White-crowned (lots), and Grasshopper Sparrow, Dark-eyed Junco and Lark Bunting Wilson's Snipe displaying http://coloradobirder.club/m/videos/view/Wilson-s-Snipe-Courting (video) [Beebe Draw]

Subject: [cobirders] Castleton Canyon
Hello

Birding at Castlewood Canyon was slow. No Bobolinks or Kingbirds were south of Park. Several Spotted Towers called from the hillside. Surpringly no Bluebirds but many Tree Swallows. Three Wild Turkeys along east-west part of Castlewood Road.

I was given directions to the place along the Creekside trail where Prairie Warblers were seen in past. No warbler at all found along the trail. One Least Flycatcher was North of the broken dam.

Several groups of Turkey Vultures circled overhead. Is that a Kettle? One group had a none vulture which got my hopes up for a Zone failed Hawk. After closer looks it turned out to be a Common Raven.

One Eastern Phoebe took food to a nest south of the highway 86 bridge. I will send in photos.

Subject: [cobirders] Rose-breasted Grosbeak at First Creek Trail, Adams County
Hello cobirders;


Finished a grouse trip in early afternoon, 2416 miles in seven days, not a record which is 2673 miles. Received an email about a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak along the First Creek Trail near DIA and went over. Adam Vesely was leaving and pointed out the location. Photos of the bird on the CoBus photo library "recent favorite photos" link

http://coloradobirdingsociety.net


Thanks to who ever found it, I did not hear.


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Belmar Park Jefferson County
I watched the west end of the little pond at Belmar Park from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. The Northern Parula finally showed after 45 minutes. He disappeared after 3 minutes and did not come back for 40. Again he only stayed a couple of minutes before I lost him again. Another 35 went by before he returned. Every time he stayed high in the white barked trees. He moved around much and only stopped behind branches. I took photos but don't expect much. I think it went into the evergreen tree at the northeast corner of the pond when I lost it.

Many Yellow rumped Warblers were male Myrtle except one male Audubon's. A Great Blue Heron had Young next to her on a nest. Barn Swallows were building nests. Double crested Cormorants sat in nests. Two Avocets Walker along the shore. A ratty looking Greater White fringed Goose stayed on the east side of the little pond.

Subject: [cobirders] Bird observations today [3 Attachments]
Birders,
Today (5/4) I observed the yellow-rumped warblers at McIntosh Lake, N. Longmont. I am uncertain as to the assignment of either Myrtle or Audubon. Any help in this regard would be appreciated.
The Northern Shrike was also observed today west of Ryan Gulch reservoir, SW Loveland, on the gravel road that runs east-west off of CR 19, south of Cattail pond.

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

Sue Ehlmann and I drove the Rocky Mountain Arsenal wildlife drive. We did not find the reported Broad-winged Hawk. Two Willets were on the Lower Derby Lake shore.

Our best bird was a Black-throated Gray Warbler. He was along the Potomac canal, north side of 6th avenue. Four Yellow-rumped Warblers were also in the cottonwoods, willows and going down to the creek for a drink and bath. This is the Eastern Phoebe spot. He did not show.

Burrowing Owls were missed. No Red-headed Woodpeckers, Sage Thrashers or other interesting birds were around.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Birding Along Cherry Creek 4/29/2018
Hello birders,

Birding along Cherry Creek today was not all that exciting.

Two Eastern Phoebes continue on the south side of the highway 86 bridge.
An Eastern Bluebird was another 300 yards south.

Parker Jordan Centennial Open Space gets the "best of the day" mention. A
Broad-winged Hawk was 1/4 to 1/2 mile south of the parking lot. A House
Wren was in the bushes with the Plum scrubs.

Cherry Creek Valley Ecological Park had five Turkey Vultures circling. I
looked close for a Zone-tailed Hawk, did not see one. Two Pygmy Nuthatches
flew around the pines north of the settlers cabin. Two Yellow-rumped
Warblers flew around the Orchard.

Two Bonaparte's Gulls are still at Cherry Creek State Park. I did not find
any shorebirds.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Great Birding and Friends in Weld County Saturday!
Hello cobirders;


April 28, 2018

Skies looked like threatening rain today; however, it never happened.

Temperatures reached a hot 80 degrees around Peaceful Valley. Winds were 10-11 mph with gusts to 31 (one gust measured 41 mph).

I had planned to visit a friend's ranch near Peaceful Valley and check fields where Mountain Plover had nested the last two years. Jim and I searched for several hours however found no Mountain Plovers (just a few Killdeer).

We did find five Burrowing Owls on private property northeast of Peaceful Valley. Two Long-eared Owls were in Jim's windbreak.

Nothing uncommon was found at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area (Weld). I dropped off Jim and picked up my email. One email was listed Long-billed Curlew, Whimbrel and Willet along Weld CR 49.

I drove CR 49 north from Hwy 52 and past the Power Plant. An irrigated field just northwest of the Power Plant was quite interesting.

A Long-billed Curlew hunted for bugs just south of the Center Pivot Irrigation Machine.

Other birds under the irrigation machine included Yellow-headed Blackbirds, Red-winged Blackbirds, Brewer's Blackbirds, Common Grackles and a few Great-tailed Grackles.

Farther south, a group of shorebirds near the southern end of the irrigated field included two Whimbrel and seven Willets.

Thanks to Michelle Robbins for reporting their whereabouts!

I stopped at Ireland Reservoir #5 just south of the above field. When I walked into the property, a Red-necked Phalarope was swimming just off shore with two Eared Grebes and five American Coots.

Dozens of Great-tailed Grackles stood on the cattails along the southern side of the Reservoir.

Then I continued south to Ireland Reservoir #1 (about a mile south of Hwy 52. It looked to have potential when I visited it on January 1st.

Best bird was a Swamp Sparrow in the cattails below the dam. It was loosely associated with three or four Song Sparrows.

Two Western Grebes, one American White Pelican and a few Eared Grebes were on the lake.

My birding day ended back at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area. I walked along Hwy 52 (from the southern parking area). A Great Horned Owl called north of Hwy 52. No Short-eared Owls appeared this evening.

I try and post photos on the Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library soon!

Hello cobirders,


A quick email about my drive through eastern Elbert & Arapahoe counties today with a detour to Douglas County.

A detour to Salisbury Equestrian Park (Douglas) found nine Marbled Godwits, eight Willets and two American Avocets.

Four Eastern Phoebes were south of the Hwy 86 bridge over Cherry Creek.

Burrowing Owl along CR 30, east of Arapahoe CR 149. Three Burrowing Owls along CR 129 at 0.7 miles south of Orchard.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Weld County Birding and Pawnee District Ranger Visit
Hi all

Birded all around Weld yesterday ... saw 79 species with the following new spring birds:
Lark Bunting [Weld CR 96] Ruddy Duck [Loloff Reservoir] Swainson's Hawk [Beebe Draw] Semipalmated Sandpiper [Weld CR 59] --Both Loloff, Weld CR 59 probably had total of 20+ peeps collectively
Least Sandpiper [Weld CR 59] Loloff had peeps as well heatwaves Wilson's Phalarope [Loloff Reservoir and Weld CR 59] Burrowing Owl-2 [Weld CR 59 south of marsh on west to south of flooded field corner alongside road] Barn Swallow Savannah Sparrow-2 [Weld CR 59] Vesper Sparrows Chipping Sparrow - few Brown-headed Cowbird Here's the gist on my Pawnee District Ranger visit:
First, he was nice guy to talk with and open to hearing concerns and solutions but he is based in reality in terms of his annual program of work, limited budget and lack of human resources to perform the work
Office currently has only ~50% of staff (looks like 10 positions in total)--two Archeologists, a temporary biologist, and a Recreation Specialist (retires next month). Reality here is USDA is "guinea pig" for Administrative streamlining efforts. Hiring to fill needed vacancies has greatly reduced in terms of process and approvals
Budget is extremely tight and diminishes each fiscal year--stabilization not expected in next few Fiscal years Multiple use of the resource is a balance--I heard "squeaky wheel" usually gets attention
Recreational shooting is exploding (no pun intended) in growth--they hear from rec shooters way-y-y-y more than birders Constituency (Rec shooting) pressure from State, County and Recreational Shooting groups for access to these public lands Talked of removing Pawnee Bird Tour signs due to $$$ cost of maintaining (replacing) due to vandalism and theft of displays Talked of getting with birders on changing and designing a 21st century birding tour, identifying birding locales around the Pawnee and using RF, GPS, mobile tech as a "virtual birding tour"--already being studied. In both east and west sections (north to south, too).
Most shooting occurs in the SE section (lower half) of the PNG west section (ie, Weld CR 96)--he mentions District Ranger came from an oil and gas background in Oklahoma The recent oil and gas development decision (2012ish) prevents drilling surface of PNG for new permits after 2014 A drill will be drilled on south side of Murphy's Pasture soon--legacy permit (older than 2014). There are two more legacy permits planned on PNG I heard mentioned In the PNG vicinity--third of all rights in private hands (surface and mineral holder same), third in mixed hands (surface owner different than mineral holder), third Federal govt hands
Grassland habitat and grassland birds are of great conservation concern not sure I heard that expressed during our conversation
Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn
