Hello cobirders;



Another beautiful fall day, temperatures in the
low 60s, mild winds.

 

I had to drive up to Coal
Canyon (Boulder County)
to see the female Magnificent Hummingbird! 
Fantastic find!  Thanks Adam Jack
for his hospitality!

 

Afterwards, I walked around Golden, centered on
Ford and 16th Streets.  In past years,
Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers have been found in the area. None was found today; 
however, it could be a 

little early.  They usually show up in
late November and December.

 

My next stop was Washington
Park (Denver). 
The female Surf Scoter was swimming around the south end of Grasmere Lake. 
Thanks to Joe Roller for reporting the duck!

 

My day ended once again along the DIA Owl Loop
(Adams).  No owls were found this
afternoon.


I put photos of the Magnificent Hummingbird, Surf Scoter and a Townsend's 
Solitaire on the Colorado Birding Society's Photo Library. (Good shots, but 
keeping best for November's "Colorado Field Notes").

Hello cobirders,

In search of songbirds to photograph with Richard's new camera, we have been 
just about everywhere around Denver lately. Sunday, we stopped at Chatfield 
State Park. Plenty of ducks were on the reservoir but we found no songbirds at 
Plum Creek delta and kingfisher bridge. We stopped at Lair 'O Bear Park and did 
not see one bird. No birds came to the feeder/seeds behind Red Rocks Park. 


Recently we have tried Cherry Creek State Park, Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Aurora 
Reservoir and Chatfield State Park all at least twice. 


Where are all the songbirds?

Subject: White Ibis - Fort Collins
From: "torobbeau AT gmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: 26 Oct 2014 11:53:53 -0700
At 9:30 a.m. this morning, Oct 26. I glimpsed what appeared to be a White Ibis, 
as it flew into the marshes of Riverbend Natural Area. I was unable to relocate 
the bird, despite searching for a couple of hours. 

 

 Description: large, all white, Ibis shaped bird. Long neck. Long, thick, 
down-curved, light colored bill. Black on outer wings. Rapid wing-beats. The 
black on the wings, and down-curved bill eliminated egrets for identification. 
The wing beats were also much faster than typical for egrets. 

 

 I recognize how unusual this is, but wanted to put it out there in hopes that 
someone else might be able to find the bird.

Hello cobirders,

Found the two Surf Scoters below the rookery overlook at Chatfield State Park. 
Did not find the Red throated Loon and did not get message that it had flown 
until I looked for an hour. 


Rich Stevens said he did not find it at Cooley Lake or McLellan Reservoir.

Subject: Your Grebe photos
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 08:08:59 -0600
Hello Georgia and all,

In regard to your grebe photos,

I have always found the "look of the back" on the small grebes to be a little 
confusing, especially if there are waves in the lake. The facial pattern is 
more useful. In basic plumage a Horned Grebe usually has a clear, whitish cheek 
while a Eared Grebe will have some dusky color in the cheek. The whitish neck 
(horned) verses dusky (eared) neck can sometimes be difficult to see. What I 
look for the the shape of the head. The high point of a Horned Grebe's head is 
toward the back of the head, while the high point of an Eared Grebe's head is 
forward. Your photos show a Horned Grebe.

From: "coloradobirder AT yahoo.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: 24 Oct 2014 08:34:57 -0700
Quick stop for me on way to work. This morning "easily" 500+ Weld County "Dump" 
gulls (7th time for me this fall so location is reliable) were present on the 
dirt field at Weld CR 23 and 78 NE corner. Many were still streaming in from 
the SW--where Windsor Reservoir resides. If you ever wanted to do "gull study" 
here's your spot-tons of them, up close! I saw 2 Lesser Black-backed Gull 
(adults), tons of Ring-billed, many California, few Franklin's and 2-3 dozen 
Herring gulls. 


Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

been able to find a sparrow at Chatfield Reservoir, Cherry Creek Reservoir, 
Rocky Mountain Arsenal or Aurora Reservoir. 


Between obligations and chores I have managed to get a few hours of birding in 
the last three days. 


Today, Tuesday I started at Aurora Reservoir where the adult Mew Gull was at 
the northwest corner. Later the many gulls swam out into the middle of the 
lake. No sparrows were around the few trees along the southwestern and southern 
sides. 


Next I stopped at Wheat Ridge Greenbelt (Jefferson). Except for a couple of 
magpies and one Northern Flicker I saw nothing for an hour. As I lamented about 
how this once top five birding location in Colorado has been deserted the last 
decade, a bird walked across the tree bridge trail, south of the boardwalk. At 
first I thought it might be a Worm-eating Warbler; however after longer looks 
it turned out to be an Ovenbird. 


Deserting the foothills I decided to look for Williamson's Sapsuckers at 
Genesee Mountain Park (Jefferson). My last dates for the park are 9/15, 9/16 & 
10/12. None was found today, nor any sparrows. 


Monday, I went to Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) hoping the Lesser Black-backed 
Gull would be at the scuba beach as it was on 10/15 (last Wednesday). 
Unfortunately it was in the middle of the lake, no photo. 


My target bird today was a Swamp Sparrow (although a Winter Wren would have 
been nice); neither was found at previous cattail marsh locations at Cherry 
Creek Reservoir and Rocky Mountain Arsenal. 


A two hour hike along the south side of Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) did 
not find any little birds. Black-billed Magpies, gulls and a couple of flickers 
appeared to be the only birds around. 


I walked Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams) for about three hours. Only a couple of 
Killdeer walked the Havana Ponds mudflats. Highlight was a flyover Prairie 
Falcon. 


Sunday, with new camera I stopped by Chatfield Reservoir (Jefferson/Douglas). 
The Red-necked Grebe had been reported below the dam on Saturday. As I had 
hoped, the many boats on the lake pushed the Red-necked Grebe in Jefferson 
County. I had observed it a week ago in Douglas County. 


On the way home, I searched for the Burrowing Owl that had been along Picadilly 
Road (between 128th & 120th avenues). I appeared to be gone; however, a 
Burrowing Owl was 300 yards north of 120th avenue at 0.5 miles east of 
Picadilly Road. 


Highlight was an adult Ferruginous Hawk eating a prairie dog east of the 
prairie dog town at 3.4 miles east of Tower Road and 96th avenue. Two juvenile 
Ferruginous Hawks stood nearby and watched. The adult did not appear to feed 
the younger. After the adult flew, the juveniles did get a few bites. 


I put photos of one of the juveniles on the Recent Witness Photos link on the 
CoBus website. The photo is not the best; however, my range finder stated the 
bird was 100 to 110 yards from me. Do like my new camera, now if only I could 
find a sparrow. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello cobirders,

Jefferson County
Richard Stevens found an Ovenbird at Wheat Ridge Greenbelt. It was first west 
of the tree bridge trail at 20 yards south of the south end of the boardwalk. 
When Richard left, it had flown to the stacked pile of cut trees on the east 
side of the trail. 


Jefferson/Douglas County
David Suddjian found an adult Mew Gull at the S. Platte arm of Chatfield 
Reservoir. He relocated the Red-necked Grebe below the dam. 


Jackson County
Sue Ehlmann and I stayed near Gould the last couple of days. We heard a Boreal 
Owl two nights ago just west of Cameron Pass. Yesterday, we saw the American 
Three-toed Woodpecker north of the Colorado State Forest Visitor's Center and 
north of hwy 14. 


Good birding!

Hello birders, 

The Red necked Grebe is still at Chatfield State Park. Many gulls but nothing 
rare. My search for owls up Deer Creek Canyon and park didn't find any. Maybe a 
dozen Mountain Bluebirds and a Say's Phoebe were at the Park.

Hello birders,  
The Burrowing Owl is still along Picadilly Road between 120th and 128th avenue. 
It moved farther east than the prairie dog mound in Richard Stevens's photo, 
Recent Witness Photos on CoBus website. A couple of American Tree Sparrows flew 
around the Barr Lake banding area. Barn Owls still there also. Good Birding!

Hello cobirders,

Migration has slowed down or over at Barr Lake State Park. Few birds were at 
the banding station. The two Barn Owls are still in the nesting box. I could 
not find the Red necked Grebe among hundreds of Western Grebes and Cormorants. 
The Bonaparte's Gull and at least one Lesser Black backed Gull flew around. A 
House Wren seemed to be a late bird. Lots of Pelicans were there also.

Again this morning the Weld County "Dump" gulls were present on the dirt field 
basking in the brilliant morning sun at Weld CR 23 and 78 NE corner. I saw 
Ring-billed, California and Herring gulls. The gulls are very near edge of Weld 
CR 78 road. These photos are 20x optical zoom. It took 10 photos to get the 
entire flock at that zoom.

Subject: Condors of Colorado
From: "Terry Michaels tmcolorado AT gmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 08:33:17 -0600
Hello birders,

As Amy wrote yesterday, the ABA has changed some rules for "countable"
species.  Any Condor born in the wild is now considered a "countable" bird.

Most if not all the Condors have radio tags and are monitored.  I did some
research and found the numbers of the five Condors that have been reported
flying over Colorado.  In all five cases, the birds were released birds,
not born in the wild.  Therefore, officially not "countable".  Still I for
one would have liked to see one in the skies over Colorado.

Good birding!

Hello cobirders,

Last Month, Richard Stevens turned over the Colorado Bird database
maintenance sponsored by the Colorado Birding Society and the Colorado Bird
Records Board over to Terry Michaels and myself.  We are still working on
security for putting the 110+ year old database on the internet.  Suggested
cBirds name was disagreed upon by several birders so we are calling it
Colorado Bird Watch.

Recent changes in the ABA listing rules bring into question the status of
California Condors in Colorado.  One visited Lands End on the Grand Mesa on
8/25/1998.  It left at dawn on 8/26/1998 and returned to the Grand Canyon.
A few lucky birders were able to see the bird that walked around the
Visitor's Center at Lands End.

Good Birding!
