Subject: Sora, Lily Lake, Rocky Mtn. Nat. Park, Larimer, 6/1
From: Jim Nelson <kingfishers2 AT verizon.net>
Date: Tue, 02 Jun 2015 07:11:00 -0500 (CDT)
 We had a nice walk at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park on Monday 
morning. The highlight, aside from our lifer moose, was a very cooperative Sora 
in the marsh on the south side of the lake. This is proving to be a reliable 
spot for this species since we have seen Sora several times here over the 
years. The water level in the marsh is very high, and I first spotted the Sora 
when it flew to one end of the marsh and then swam until it reached the edge 
(I'm used to seeing them walk along marsh edges, so seeing one swimming was a 
pleasant surprise). It then proceeded to walk about in and out of cover giving 
us great views. Wilson's Snipe were also active and calling.

 Birding at Lake Estes in Estes Park this afternoon, I found a male Redhead in

Enjoying a nice visit in Colorado Springs the last few days, I went by Memorial 
Park in Colorado Springs this morning and found the previously-reported Greater 
White-fronted Goose still present.

Subject: White-throated Sparrow, Estes Park yard, Larimer Co., 5/26
From: Jim Nelson <kingfishers2 AT verizon.net>
Date: Tue, 26 May 2015 11:44:03 -0500 (CDT)
 As I was getting my second bowl of cereal this morning at our vacation home on 
the west side of Estes Park, I glanced out the kitchen door at the back yard 
area where we have our bird feeders. I saw a bright bird feeding on the ground. 
Realizing it was something different, I grabbed my binoculars and focused on a 
very bright White-throated Sparrow. At home in Maryland in late fall, winter, 
and early spring, we have lots of them in our back yard. But I know it is very 
unusual in Colorado and especially up here. I managed one documentary photo 
before it flew off. It has not returned since. 



I checked eBird and found only one other record in the Estes Park area, at the 
YMCA Camp in October 2010. There is also an eBird report a bit south in 
Allenspark, Boulder Co., in November 2012. 



It is always nice to get a new state bird in our own back yard.


Another fun observation was a male Hairy Woodpecker that managed to hold on to 
a perch on our hummingbird feeder and extract sugar water using its long 
tongue. 



We also have been seeing a melanistic Mountain Chickadee which is fairly dark 
gray in the areas that would normally be white.

 I took a late afternoon walk at Lake Estes in Estes Park and found the 
previously reported male Magnolia Warbler and a female American Redstart. Both 
birds were on the peninsula that juts out into the lake in the Matthews-Reeser 
Bird Sanctuary.

Subject: More On the McKay Iceland Gull, Adams County
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sat, 7 Mar 2015 23:16:14 -0600
Hello cobirders;

I forgot to mention, the Iceland Gull at McKay Lakes was not the same one I 
photographed at Aurora Reservoir on 2/28/2015. The McKay bird was darker. 


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: Adams and Arapahoe County Birding, Saturday 3/7/2015
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sat, 7 Mar 2015 23:12:58 -0600
Hello cobirders;

Bryan Ehlmann and I arrived back in Denver this morning about 6:00 am from a 
week long grouse trip, details later. 


Bryan headed to bed and I headed over to McKay and 100th avenue (Adams County) 
to search for the previously reported Dunlin. Several birders had looked before 
me today; however, I spent an hour scoping the lakes and river shore. It was 
not found as far as I know. After lunch, I returned a searched another 45 
minutes; without success. Earlier the Iceland Gull was on the northern East 
McKay Lake; after lunch, it had moved to the southern Lake. 


My plan was to stop briefly at Aurora Reservoir and then look for Short-eared 
Owls in the southeastern corner of Arapahoe County. When I arrived at Aurora 
Reservoir, 4:30 PM (Arapahoe County), two Lesser Black-backed Gulls were on the 
ice at the scuba beach area. Thayer's Gulls stood out next to the taller 
Herring Gulls. I counted two for sure, but thought there were additional 
Thayer's Gulls wandering among the many Ring-billed, California and Herring 
Gulls. Gulls continued to fly in from DADS Landfill (from the Northwest). While 
trying to get an accurate count of the Thayer's Gulls (at least three now) a 
Glaucous Gull dropped in. It stood above the nearby Herring Gulls! 


I ran out of daylight and had to skip my southeastern Arapahoe County 
Short-eared Owl search until another evening. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders, The gulls at Aurora Reservoir were at the cove at mile marker 
2.0 today. I could see two Lesser Black backed Gulls and an all white gull, 
bigger than Ring billed, smaller than Herring. I wandered over to the DIA Owl 
Loop in Adams County. No Short eared Owls seen, but I finally found the 
Burrowing Owl at Trussville and 114th Avenue. Will post a "witness shot" to the 
CoBus website later tonight, if they are at all okay.

Hello birders, I was on the west side of Denver today. Searched about two hours 
for the Pine Warbler at Denver West, it was not found. Two Red breasted, two 
White Breasted Nuthatches, Mountain Chickadees and House Finches flew around 
building 7. Good Birding!

I think this must be an immature Red-tailed Hawk, but I'm not sure. It seems 
too dark.

Hi all

My wife and I ventured out for the owls yesterday. In the AM no luck. At 
6:10PM-ish there were six cars waiting for the owls in various places along 
Buckeye Road. A few of us, headlights off, agreed to flash headlights if 
seen--that system worked. They appeared in their normal place 2086 Buckeye 
Rd--a birder acquaintance of mine lives there--one jumping up from the field. 
As that one flew east to slight ridge near Rawhide Plant wind break another one 
appeared interacting with it. 


Note: That birder acquaintance of mine also mentioned during the third week of 
April these same fields bring many (dozens+) Long-billed Curlews during spring 
something to keep in mind. 


Also, two Lapland Longspur continue at Weld CR 33 in Nunn btw WCR 100/WCR 
98--walking the area is best to hear and find them. 


Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Date: Sun, 1 Mar 2015 02:10:40 -0700
Hello cobirders;

3/1; 2:00 am; Bryan and I just returned from owling in White Ranch and Golden 
Gate Canyon State Park (Jefferson County). We found two Northern Pygmy-Owls on 
this rather cold night (9 degrees). 


This afternoon (2/28) I scoped gulls at Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) for three 
hours. First I took 523 photos of the tens of hundreds of gulls at the 
southwest corner. It will take a day or two to examine all those photos. Not 
all photos will be great; however, they are quite adequate to identify the 
birds. 


Gulls identified in the three hours included: 

Lesser Black-backed Gull (at least three, could have been six)
Thayer's Gulls (at least three)
Iceland Gull (1)
California Gulls (dozens)
Herring Gulls (dozens)
Ring-billed Gulls (hundreds)
Mew Gull (1)

I stayed from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm when the sun disappeared behind clouds.

It was a great afternoon to study various ages. Four or five gulls were quite 
interesting and not yet Identified. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders, Rich Stevens, Bryan Ehlmann and I looked again for the Burrowing 
Owl at Trussville and 114th. It wasn't found. Richard photographed a Snow 
Bunting with hundreds of Horned Larks and at least two Lapland Longspurs along 
Quency Street, sometimes called Cargo Street. The flock flew back and forth 
across the road at the top of the hill south of the prairie dog town, 3.4 miles 
east of Tower Road and 96th avenue. The birds landed on the fence and the cut 
sunflower field to the west of the road. We found a Short eared Owl along 
112th, east of Queensburg Street. I believe 112th, may have been lower number. 
It is the road to the Aviation Offices along the east side of the airport, 
south of the Frontier maintenance building. SEOWs have been seen here before. 
We also tried Gun Club Road which is west of the northern runways. 


Good Birding!

The Winter Mountain Birding trip scheduled for tomorrow led by Bill Kaempfer 
has been canceled. 

Hello Boulder Bird Club members.  I am very sorry for this late notice of 
cancelation of the Mountain Feeders trip tomorrow.   Major weather situation 
and dangerous driving up to Ward is our cause.  We apologize for the late note 
but want our members to be safe.   I have attached a note from the trip 
leader Bill Kaempfer below:  

I am cancelling the Boulder Bird Club field trip to mountain feeders scheduled 
for this Saturday.  The current forecast for Ward, for instance, predicts 
about 8 more inches of snow between now and Saturday with probability of snow 
never falling below 30% and the temperature never getting above 18.  But it is 
not the weather but the roads that I worry about.  Road conditions will be 
poor at best, but worse is that there will be no place to park once we 
arrive. Sorry to not be able to do this, but there is always next year! Bill 
Kaempfer

Hello birding people,

Ray Simmons and I looked to see if the Pine Warbler was still around the Denver 
West Office Complex. We did not find it in two hours. Very few birds were 
around. 


Later we saw the Golden crowned Sparrow and a White winged Dark eyed Junco at 
Red Rocks. 


Good birding!

Hello birders, Rich Stevens, Bryan Ehlmann and I searched for the Burrowing Owl 
that has been reported several times near Trussville Road and 114th avenue. I 
missed it for the second time; they missed it for the fourth time? Many gulls 
flew around Barr Lake, but we did not find any rare gulls. One of the Barn Owls 
was north of the banding station. One Long eared Owl was relocated at Banner 
Lakes Wildlife Area. the Gray Catbird was missed in a second attempt. 


Good Birding!

We could identify two Lesser Black backed Gulls, Herring Gulls, a California 
Gull and hundreds of Ring billed Gulls. Visibility is poor, could not find 
Thayer's Gulls or Mew Gull.

Scaup swam along the dam.  Four additional Greater Scaup were on Eaglewatch

Hello birders,

Birded Jefferson County.  Stopped at Apex Trail, saw no Rosy Finches but
did not go up snowy trail.  Rosy Finches were at 318 DeFrance Court which
is not far from Apex.  Same birds?

The Golden crowned Sparrow is still behind Red Rocks Park.
Good birding!

Rich, We looked for the Harris's Sparrow at Rocky Mountain Arsenal. The flock 
of birds at the outside parking lots moved on. We did see many Tree Sparrows 
near the gate along the entrance road. A California Gull was with Ring billed 
and Herring at Washington Park. No Thayer's Gulls found today.

From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sun, 22 Feb 2015 15:29:03 -0700
Hello cobirders;

Short-eared Owls appeared to be quite active along the DIA Owl Loop the past 
two weeks. I found them four of five trips, then missed them on three trips. 
Bryan Ehlmann and I watched a pair copulate last week (along private road). Any 
of my reports are from public roads. Yesterday, Mark Chavez found a dead 
Short-eared Owl along 96th avenue. This bird may have been one of the above 
pair; we hope not. 


Robert Martinez found a Burrowing Owl on 2/19. That beats my earliest date by 
36 days. Rebecca and I went out on 2/20; however we could not find the bird. 


Roads are pretty bad here today (snowing for the last 24 hours or so). I may 
try and drive the Loop anyway. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello cobirders;

While out doing chores Rebbecca and I drove through the Rocky Mountain Arsenal. 
An Harris's Spaorrow was with 34 American Tree Sparrows outside of the 
entrance. The flock was around the parking area south of the main road, across 
from the parking area for the only restroom along that road. They spent much 
time under the three evergreen trees, also flew up to small trees at the other 
end of the parking area when a car would come by. 


Forty one Double crested Cormorants are now around the nests at Duck Lake in 
Denver City Park,Denver County. We found none four days ago. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hi all

 

I went down to Carbondale a little earlier this evening and was suitable
rewarded.

 

There were at least 142 Barrow's Goldeneyes this evening at 6pm on Coryell
Ranch ponds viewed from next to Hwy82, on CR106 (Satank Road) 39.424544,
-107.239496

 

I could not count the whole group however, as some swam behind some cattails


 

Good birding all

Hello birders, 

Two adult and two white belly Bald Eagles are back at south side picnic area at 
Cherry Creek State Park. Another two adults were flying around and two at 
campgrounds and main road. 


The road going south from the shooting range which is normally closed was open, 
so I took it. A Short eared Owl was east of the road, about 0.2 miles south of 
the gate. 


As I passed the marina area I thought a Tree Swallow flew over. Further 
searching did not find it again,

Hello birders,

I stopped by Star K Ranch on my way home today. As excepted, few birds were 
there. The usual House Finches and Red wings were around the feeders. Only a 
few Dark eyed Juncos and a Song Sparrow at the cattail marshes. A few years 
ago, an American Woodcock showed up, none today. Two Great Horned Owls called 
at dusk. 


Good Birding!

Hello cobirders,

Three of us searched for Saw-whet Owls at Reynolds Park this morning.
Bryan Ehlmann found a Northern Pygmy Owl up the Oxen Draw Trail.  Rich
Stevens found a female Three toed Woodpecker east of the Oxen Draw Trail
about 40 yards north of the Eagle's View Trail.  A Dusky Grouse was 20
yards west of the intersection of the two trails.  No Saw whets found.

We found another Three toed Woodpecker at the Strawberry Jack switchbacks
at Pine Valley Ranch.  No Owls were found.

Georgia, 8229 is a male green-winged teal. Note the yellowish rump (as opposed 
to the black of the breeding plumaged male wigeon),  the cinnamon top of the 
head (as opposed to the white on the breeding wigeon male), and the slanting 
white bar at the front of the wing down the side of the breast. 


As for 8223, my call would be eclipse plumage male wigeons (rather than 
females) because of the presence of white on the wing. 


I love the "12-legged" ewe, hiding two lambs beneath the mantle of wool 
dreadlocks!

Hello cobirders,

I could not find Greater Scaup on Chatfield Reservoir so tried South Platte
Park in Arapahoe County, north across 470 from Chatfield.  Five Greater
Scaup were on Eaglewatch Lake.  No rare gulls were on South Platte Park
Reservoir.  It was windy and difficult to hold my scope steady.

The Golden crowned Sparrow is still behind the Red Rocks Park trading post
in Jefferson County.  A Canyon Wren called from the rocks north of the
chapel.  A flock of 6-8 Bushtits were also in this area.

Hello cobirders;

Temperatures only reached the low 30s today. Winds were 12+ mph, gusts to 18 
mph. Rumors of winds in the 30+ mph range in the foothills changed our plans to 
go owling in Gilpin and Boulder Counties. 


Instead, I drove to Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) and walked the eastern side 
from the scuba area (mile 6.0 to mile 4.0). About 300 gulls were at the scuba 
area. Mostly Ring-billed Gulls with several Herring Gulls and a Lesser 
Black-backed Gull stood on the ice there. 


Another patch of ice at mile 4.0 offered a resting spot for another 400 gulls. 
Again, mostly Ring-billed Gulls stood here. Uncommon gulls included a Glaucous 
Gull and the Herring Gull X hybrid? that I have seen on several previous trips. 


The last hour of daylight was spent driving again around Eastern Arapahoe 
County. A fifth Great Horned Owl's nest was added to the four found on Friday 
the 13th! 


Continued Good Birding!

Hi Group,

this is a late posting--
At Green Mountain Boat Ramp , Shadow Mountain Lake on 2-11-15 I saw two Hooded 
mergansers---males 

I am just six months in the area around Granby, Grand lake and according to 
Sibley's this bird is a migrant only and on the very southern limit of its 
range migrationally speaking. I posted it to e Bird and it noted this is an 
unusual occurrence, any one out there have any comments?

Date: Mon, 16 Feb 2015 20:38:05 -0700
Hello cobirders;

After finishing chores on this snowy winter Monday, I drove around Adams County 
for a bit. 


The pair of Bald Eagles that unsuccessfully tried to breed last year near 120th 
avenue and Hwy 470 has been around their nest today and for the past week or 
so. 


Approximately 60 Great-tailed Grackles were around the goat farm along Buckley 
Road at approximately 0.8 miles found of 120th Avenue. 


Hundreds of gulls fly around the bay east of the Pioneer Trail at Barr Lake. A 
Lesser Black-backed Gull was among many Ring-billed Gulls. Hundreds also flew 
below the southern end of the dam. Again, most were Ring-billed; a couple of 
Herring Gulls were also there. I could not find one to call a Mew Gull. 
Thousands also flew around the center of the lake, too far away to identify. 


Then I drove the DIA Owl Loop. Final rapture count was eleven Red-tailed Hawks, 
seven Northern Harriers (five were males), three Ferruginous Hawks, one 
non-adult Bald Eagle and one Prairie Falcon. 


After not finding any Short-eared Owls at various locations around the loop, I 
sat at the hill 3.0 miles east of Tower Road & 96th avenue (0.2 miles south of 
the infamous prairie dog village). I had decided to stay until it was too dark 
to see birds. 


The field to the east had most of the above rapture count: six Red-tailed 
Hawks, five Northern Harriers, the Bald Eagle and Prairie Falcon. The Prairie 
Falcon was most interesting to watch as it soared back and forth across the 
valley. 


By 5:40 pm, all of the raptors had departed for their nightly roosts. Finally, 
at 5:56 pm, a Short-eared Owl flew down the "valley" with its distinctive "moth 
like" flight pattern. By 6:01 pm, snow returned and I cautiously returned home 
on ice roads covered with snow. 


Horned Larks were quite prevalent in the snowfields today. At least five 
hundred flew back and forth across the road. Regrettably, no Snow Buntings were 
observed among them. 


Continued Good Birding!
