Subject: [cobirders] Six Chicks Pics
Birders,
This morning, 6/1//19, six owlets were observed at the burrowing owl nest at Coyote Ridge Natural Area, Ft. Collins, Larimer Cty. The adult pair were both constantly off the burrow, hunting bugs to feed the young. Here is a photo of the owlets huddled at the entrance to the burrow. More photos will be posted later this morning online.

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] Snowy Owl at Tommy Davis Park
While anything is possible I suppose, it would be unlikely or amazing if a
Snowy Owl was at Tommy Davis Park. Several birders live not far from the
Park. If there is one, future reports should be coming.

Some Barn Owls can be very white. That would be more likely.

Birders,
The Coyote Ridge Natural Area burrowing owls were both out hunting this morning (6/18). Two separate hiking groups each affirmed that three owlets are in the nest (and no, I did not get to see them!). Here is a photo of the female brining in a bug. I will be posting more photos later today here: Click Here <https://www.flickr.com/photos/18276798@N07/>

Good Birding,

Birders,
There was a brown-capped rosy-finch beside the trail to Forest Canyon Overlook, off Trail Ridge Road, RMNP, today (6/16). There were either two of them, or one that flew from a spot about a half mile west to the overlook while I was driving between the two locations. Here is a photo of the one at F..C.O. I’ll be posting more photos tomorrow here (Click Here <https://www.flickr.com/photos/18276798@N07/>).
Good birding,
Dan

Subject: [cobirders] Busy Morning at Coyote Ridge [3 Attachments]
The burrowing owls were very busy hunting for their young (no, I didn’t see it!) at Coyote Ridge Natural Area (Ft. Collins) this morning (6/13). Here are a couple of photos and a link to more photos.

While at the natural area this morning, I saw some behavior that is not acceptable when observing and/or photographing these owls. First, let me say that these owls, especially the male, have adapted to the presence of the string of hikers, bikers and birders walking on the trail. The male flew back and forth to the interpretive sign, using the sign as a perch for hunting. I, as well as four other photographers/observers, remained motionless and on the road while he hunted, flying over us and at time approaching us as he caught several bugs. He seem totally at ease around us, and did not display any aggressive behavior. However, there were some foreign hikers that wandered off the trail toward the nest while trying to photograph the male on the sign. They did not speak english, so it was hard to convey to them that they should stay on the trail. Also, a couple started to walk off the trail toward the nest to avoid walking near the male on the sign. They were unaware of the nest, and quickly returned to the trail when told to do so. It is important to educate the uninformed about proper behavior when we see it.

Good birding,
Dan

Subject: [cobirders] One chick spotted at Coyote Ridge Natural Area Burrowing Owls [2 Attachments]
Birders,
Here are a couple of photos of the burrowing owls at Coyote Ridge Natural Area (Ft. Collins) taken today, 6/12. Also at the site was a Ft. Collins nature area ranger. She was there because there was a report of photographers being too aggressive in trying to get a photo. The complaint stated that the photographers were, “chasing the owls as they owls tried to hunt.” I have never personally observed behavior that I would characterize as chasing, but it would be wise to take this as a warning to not approach the birds too closely, and to make any movement slow and respectful.
Good birding,
Dan

Hello birders,
Jamie and I drove the Eastern Adams County Loop this morning.   We found a Mountain Plover along 160th avenue, west of Piggot Road.  The two Burrowing Owls were out along 160th avenue half a mile west of Yellow Jacket.  A Ferruginous Hawk and Cassin's Kingbird were along Bradbury Krebs Road.  Two Great tailed Grackles were at BK Road and hwy 36.  We found nothing at the old Byers rest stop.

Subject: [cobirders] Advice On a Scope & Tripod
Hello cobirders,

Jeff Hayes would like some advice

I wonder if you could send this request for advice out for the other
cobirders.
I was given $1000 to get a telescope and tripod. I would like some advice
from birding experts as to the best ones to get.
I currently have no tripod at all. I have a Barska 20-60x x 60mm telescope
with a tripod screw. Should I upgrade the telescope, and if so, to what? I
want a tripod that would be sturdy. I am 6’ tall and prefer not to have to
stoop, either.
Thanks very much

Birders!
The male burrowing owl at Coyote Ridge Nature Area was out hunting today (6/3) and caught a bright red bug. Not sure what it was, but it looked like it was delicious!

I found a bobolink today (5/31) at the western end of McIntosh Lake, NW Longmont, Boulder County, 40° 11' 52.23” N, 105° 9' 33” W. It was on a fence and did not seem to mind being photographed. Here are a couple of shots that I got.
Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Coyote Ridge Nature Area Burrowing Owls
Birders,
I went out to Coyote Ridge Nature Area (off of S. Taft Hill, Ft. Collins, Larimer Co) this morning (5/28) and spotted the two owls close to the trail about 1/2 mile from the parking lot. They are very active at the burrow and usually pop out for long periods of time. If you don’t see them, be patient - they’ll show! Here are a couple of photos from this morning. It looked like one was kissing the other on the cheek, but I think they were engaged in some personal grooming.
Good Birding,
Dan

Subject: [cobirders] Mississippi Kite and Eastern Bluebird [Logan]
Hi all


On our way back from Nebraska trip (Sunday) saw and heard a Mississippi Kite flying above Pioneer Park and while hiking the trails came across Eastern Bluebird pair building a nest in a stump on trail that traverses the north side of the park.

Subject: [cobirders] Larimer Cty (Common Gallinule)
Hello cobirders,

Larimer Cty
Rich Stevens relocated the Common Gallinule (Josh Bruening, 4/29) at the Schware unit of Wellington Wildlife Area. This is north of CR 60, west of CR 3. The bird stayed much of the time behind the tall willow western half of pond.

He could not find the Chestnut sided Warbler at Cobb Lake unit but did find Gray checked Thrush from the southern parking lot and Great tailed Crackle from the Northern parking lot.

See Colorado Birding Society's website for additional details:

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Tennessee Warbler and Short eared Owl show, Adams/Denver Counties
Hello birders,


Best bird at Barr Lake State Park this morning was a male Tennessee Warbler
east of the banding station. Four Swainson's Thrushes and one Hermit
Thrush found, no Gray cheeked.


A pair of Short eared Owls were performing their mating ritual around 5:30
pm along West Cargo Road. There is a fence going east about 0.3 miles
south of 3rd Creek.

Subject: [cobirders] Activity at the burrowing owl nest at Coyote Ridge Nature Area [1 Attachment]
Birders,

The male burrowing owl was active at the burrow (Coyote Ridge NA, near Ft. Collins, Larimer Cty) at about 8:30 this morning (5/22/19). He was gathering material for the nest. Photo below and Click Here <https://www.flickr.com/photos/18276798@N07/>.

Also, the great horned owlets at B. F. Kitchen Elementary school, (Loveland, Larimer Cty) have left the nest and there was no sign of them or the parents this morning. They were fun to watch!

Subject: [cobirders] Some yard birds, Adams Cty
Hello cobirders,

The snow brought some nice birds to our home today. Besides the three male Western Tanagers that have been around for five days, we had three Clay-colored Sparrows (new yard bird) and a White-throated Sparrow. Two Bushtits have visited for six weeks now. We hope they nest somewhere on the ranch.

Good birding!

Subject: [cobirders] Enjoyable Unsuccessful Search for Chestnut-collared Longspurs at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe County)
Hello cobirders;

I popped over to Barr Lake (Adams) in the morning hoping to relocate one of the Gray-cheeked Thrushes I found last Friday (May 18). None of Monday's birds was found either. Last night's snowstorm did bring in many sparrows.

In the afternoon, I searched for the Chestnut-collared Longspurs found earlier by Loch Kilpatrick at the Cherry Creek State Park model airplane field. They were not found also.

The majority bird(s) were Lark Buntings. The count included 160 at the model airplane field, 50 at the Prairie Loop, 60 at the Mountain Loop and 40 at West Shades picnic area. Additional small groups were scattered along Lake View Road (the main road between the east and west entrances).

Sparrows were in high numbers also. In order of most number, there were Lark Sparrows, Vesper Sparrows, Chipping Sparrows, Brewer's Sparrows, eight Song Sparrows, six Clay-colored Sparrows, two Savannah Sparrows (one each East Shades picnic area & Lake Loop), two Lincoln's Sparrows (West Shades), one Harris's Sparrow (Prairie Loop), and one White-throated Sparrow (Prairie Loop). The most difficult find was two White-crowned Sparrows along the shooting range entrance road. Best find was two Cassin's Sparrows up the Butterfly Hill trail!

Misses included Field Sparrow and Sagebrush Sparrow. I walked the 12-mile pond trail where a Sagebrush Sparrow was photographed on 4/11/2018 (not so recent witness photos link on Colorado Birding Society's website).

I relocated the Blackpoll Warbler found this morning by Terry Michaels at the east end of West Shades. While trying to photograph a Yellow Warbler in a cottonwood, the Blackpoll Warbler was seen around two "West Shades" picnic tables east of the restrooms.

An Eastern Phoebe hung around the eastern boat ramp parking area. I will try to add photos to the Colorado Birding Society's photo library tomorrow.

Finally, a Tennessee Warbler was spotted in the trees at the west end of East Shades.

The only non-Killdeer shorebirds found were a dozen of so Spotted Sandpipers. Nine of them walked the shore west of West Shades.

A final search for the Chestnut-collared Longspurs at the model airplane field was not successful and I left. No owls found around dusk.

Continued Good Birding!

Subject: [cobirders] 3rd Annual Weld County 100 Full Report
Hi all


We birded from 0630 to 1530, and in general, constrained by Nunn, Keota, north Greeley and Hwy 85 boundaries on Saturday. As I mentioned earlier we finished with 103 species on Saturday. The running joke on Saturday was finding the "elusive" ;-) American Wigeon ... we eventually got the bird as our last bird of the day at F Street pond in Greeley. Got fantastic views of all grassland specialties.



Sunday morning I went out and visited spots NOT visited by us on Saturday: Latham Reservoir, Stewart's Ponds, Beebe Draw, 35th Ave, Glenmere Park, Windsor and Wood Lakes. Picked up 14 more species: Black-capped Chickadee, Chimney Swift, Downy Woodpecker, Turkey Vulture, Black-crowned Night Heron, American Crow, Wilson's Snipe, Virginia's Warbler, Great Egret, White-faced Ibis, Marsh Wren, Belted Kingfisher, Violet-green Swallow and Vesper Sparrow.


All told we wound up with 117 species for the Weld County 100, missing areas of Loloff Reservoir, Weld CR 59 marsh Pawnee NG locales east of Keota and all points in Weld south of Lasalle; and relatively "easy" birds of Canvasback, Ring-necked Duck, White-crowned Sparrow, Common Merganser, Eared Grebe, Common Goldeneye, Least Sandpiper, both yellowlegs, and Snowy Egret. "Easy" in that I saw last weekend.


Full list below. Photos here: http://www. friendsofthepawneegrassland. org/albums/view/99/annual- weld-county-100 http://www.friendsofthepawneegrassland.org/albums/view/99/annual-weld-county-100


Probably do second week in May next year.
