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.

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.

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!

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.

From: "'dtandelsie AT yahoo.com' dtandelsie@yahoo.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>

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?

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!

Subject: Aurora Reservoir to the DIA Owl Loop
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Wed, 11 Feb 2015 01:31:33 -0700
Hello cobirders;

Returning from visiting friends in Aurora, I stopped by Aurora Reservoir 
(Arapahoe County). Winds were 8+ mph; temperatures reached the high 50s today. 


About 300 gulls stood on the ice off the western fisherman's parking area. 
Aurora Reservoir is unusual. It is the last reservoir/lake to freeze (Cherry 
Creek Reservoir & Chatfield Reservoir froze a month earlier); however, it is 
the only one mostly ice covered (Cherry Creek & Chatfield are mostly open). 


I watched the gulls for an hour before most took off north toward DADS (Denver 
Arapahoe Disposal Site). Quickly I was able to pick out two Lesser Black-backed 
Gulls. A large dark Gull stood out as being larger than the Herring Gulls 
standing next to it. The dark breast and flanks and checkered back indicated a 
1st winter Great Black-backed Gull. 


At least one Thayer's Gull stood among them (pink legs, rounded head).

No Short-eared Owls appeared at sunset around the DIA Owl Loop (Adams County). 
Raptors included: 5 Northern Harriers, 2 Red-tailed Hawks, 2 Ferruginous Hawks 
and a Prairie Falcon. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders,

I unsuccessfully searched for the Denver West Office Pine Warbler for about two 
hours. Winds were strong, 12+ mph. I couldn't find any flocks of small birds. 
Afterwards the Golden crowned Sparrow was found behind the Red Rocks Trading 
Post. Many Dark eyed Juncos, two Cassin's Finches, a few House Finches, 
Chickadees and Western Scrub Jays, no Rosy Finches came by. 


Good Birding!

Hello birders,

We drove around Adams County this afternoon. While there were few gulls below 
the north end of the Barr Lake thousands of gulls were on the shore south of 
the Pioneer Trail. At least two Thayer's Gulls and two Lesser Black backed 
Gulls were among them. We did not see any larger gulls, i.e. Glaucous. 


Two Great tailed Grackles and a Great Horned Owl were around the pond at 
Buckley Road and 132nd avenue. Sixty plus Grackles were reported in the area 
yesterday. While trying to get to the DIA Owl Loop, the flock of 50+ Great 
tailed Grackles were found at the goat farm along Buckley Road at 0.8 miles 
north of 120th avenue. 


No Short eared Owls were found along the DIA Owl Loop. A Prairie Falcon along 
114th avenue, six Northern Harriers, two Ferruginous Hawks across from the 
infamous Prairie Dog Town, one Rough legged Hawk along 96th avenue and three 
Red tailed Hawks were seen. 


Good Birding!

Hello birders,

Only found two Lesser Black backed Gulls at Barr Lake State Park.  No way
to pick out an Iceland Gull with all the gulls flying around.  No larger
gulls either.

There were many American Tree Sparrows along Gun Club Road south of 114th
avenue.

Finally I picked out a Short eared Owl along the Owl Loop.  I was parked
3.2 miles east of Tower Road and 96th avenue.  Scoped toward the airport
tower, the Short eared Owl was on a fence post, 14 posts south of the fence
corner in line with the airport tower.

Many Northern Harriers (6), one Rough legged Hawk, two Red tailed Hawks and
two Ferruginous Hawks were along the Owl Loop.

Good birding!

Hello birding people,

Two Days up in Gould, Ray Simmons and I found a Three toed Woodpecker north of 
the Colorado State Forest Visitor's Center yesterday. Both days, Rosy Finches 
came to the feeders. Not many, 10-12 Brown capped and 4 Gray crowned; no Black. 
Missed Sage Grouse both days. Heard a Boreal Owl last night, west of Cameron 
Pass. 


Good birding!

Hello birders,

No gulls were at Cherry Creek State Park at 1:00 pm. Only one gull, a Ring 
billed Gull, was surprising at Aurora Reservoir at 4:00 pm. 


Good Birding!

Hello birders,

I stopped by South Platte Park Reservoir, found no rare birds.  Six+
Greater Scaup were on nearby Eaglewatch Lake in Arapahoe County.  A Lesser
Black backed Gull was on McLellan Reservoir which I believe is also in
Arapahoe County.

Good birding!
