Hello cobirders;

We drove Gunnison County Road 38 at dawn and found five Gunnison Sage-Grouse 
north of CR 38A. A Common Loon was at Antero Reservoir (Park County). I made it 
to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) before Friday traffic halted the trip 
home. Scoping Cherry Creek Reservoir for about two hours, I did not find the 
Little Gull. Had not been around computers for five days and did not know last 
sighting. It was not found. 


It was a good afternoon for terns. Eighteen Black Terns stood on various buoys. 
Two Common Terns scared off four Black Terns off one buoy. While watching them, 
a Caspian Tern pushed the Common Terns off. At least two Forster's Terns also 
flew around. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hi, I don't usually weigh in on these things because I'm not very
experienced.  But I'd guess it's an immature Sage Thrasher.

GGary,

I have seen several cordilleran flycatchers in the foothills and in the 
mountains, but never on the plains. But it looks like a cordilleran flycatcher 
to me. It has the eye ring, the barring, and the size matches. If I could hear 
its song, I could be certain.

Hello Gary Lefko and all,

Just over the last 20 years the 
Colorado Bird Records Board has received dozens, over 60 reports of 
Black Swifts in El Paso County.† In 1996, and 2001 successful nesting 
was confirmed.† If the article that you refer to 
"http://www.aba.org/thecoolestbird.pdf, and note that it includes no sightings 
of Black Swift east of the 

Sangre de Cristos in the south of Colorado" considers El Paso County 
included as "in the south of Colorado", the article is mistaken.

Your
 sources should be examined.† The Colorado Bird Records Board receives 
many additional bird sightings than the old Colorado Bird Records 
Committee.† Most of the Colorado Birding Society's officers do not use 
or participate in ebirds.† Using either source as a definite for records
 is suspect.

We encourage birders who desire up to date records to email:
tmcolorado(at)gmail.com

or call:
303-324-7994

One can report birds to the above number and sign up for text message RBA for 
current bird sightings. 


Good Birding!

Subject: Boreal Owls in the Colorado State Forest Area, Jackson County; Shorebi rds on the move in Northeastern Colorado
From: "'sueehlmann AT juno.com' sueehlmann@juno.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sun, 17 Aug 2014 19:24:30 GMT
Hello cobirders,

Jackson County
Richard Stevens and all went out looking for Boreal Owls last night in the 
Colorado State Forest. He heard several, did not try and see them. Closest to 
roads was 300 yards northwest of the parking area/restroom at Cameron Pass. 
Second, 400 yards south of the Crags Campgrounds. Beware of Wilson's Snipes 
also calling in the area. The trick/essential condition is to search for them 
when there is little wind. Boreal Owl call is soft and difficult to hear on 
windy nights. 


Logan County
Bill Kaempfer reports shorebirds, peeps at Jumbo Reservoir. At least four 
Bell's Vireos continue at the Little Jumbo hedgerows. 


Good Birding!

Subject: A Drive Around Eastern Arapahoe County, Saturday 8/16/2014
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sun, 17 Aug 2014 02:23:58 -0600
Hello cobirders;

August 16, 2014

With seven Cassin's Kingbird reports for Arapahoe County in the past month, 
Rebecca and I decided to search for one for ourselves. We drove East Jewell 
Avenue, past Murphy Creek Golf Course toward East Yale Avenue. Reports of two 
Cassin's Kingbirds in the area yesterday did not help us find one. The dozen or 
so kingbirds were all Western. Fifty or so Lark Buntings feeding around the 
sunflowers along the road were all females or young males, no adult males. 
Farther east, the road was closed because of bridge repair. 


We wanted to checkout Aurora Reservoir anyway, so we circled over to East 
Quincy Avenue, past the entrance to Aurora Reservoir and turned north on 
Watkins Road, then west on East Yale Avenue. Hundreds of Lark Buntings, again 
females or young males flew around on both sides of the road. Dozens of 
Mourning Doves accompanied them. 


We continued west, then north, then west until reaching the same bridge under 
repair. The return trip was more interesting. An adult Red-headed Woodpecker 
flew to a fence post at the corner where East Yale Street turns from South to 
East. Later the woodpecker returned to the few trees just to the west. 


At 29801 E. Yale, we stopped to look at a Sage Thrasher. It was here that we 
got our Arapahoe County Cassin's Kingbird. It was hawking insects at the end of 
the driveway! 


Aurora Reservoir was uneventful. Too many people and few birds moved about.

On Sunday, 8/17, Quincy Avenue will be closed from Robertsdale Road (first road 
east of Aurora Reservoir entrance) to Watkins Road. Predicted to be a one-day 
closure for a reason that was not listed. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders, 

When I pulled into the Lake Loop at Cherry Creek STP Rich Stevens had been 
watching the Little Gull for 15 minutes or so. It flew around the shore at the 
swim beach. By the time we got there, it flew over our heads once and went to 
the southeast corner. It remained there for the next half hour. The only place 
with no jet skis or boats. 


Richard found a Red eyed Vireo in the cottonwoods west of the volley ball net, 
next to red and brown no swimming sign. 


The Little Gull is easy to pick out on the water, appearing dark and small. In 
flight the distinct wing pattern and tern like flight also easy to see. Would 
not expect it to leave the lake tonight!

Hello cobirders,

Richard and I walked the 7.8 miles around Aurora Reservoir this afternoon. 
While we did not find the birds reported yesterday; Red-headed Woodpecker, Barn 
Owl and Long-billed Curlew, we did have a few nice highlights. We found 
Virginia Rail, Loggerhead Shrike, Pectoral Sandpiper, Eastern Kingbird, Say's 
Phoebe, and Prairie Falcon. 


Seven Burrowing Owls were at 3.4 miles east of Tower Road and 96th avenue.

P.s. Richard's subject report on eastern Arapahoe County was on Monday, not 
Tuesday. 


Good birding!

Hello cobirders;

Rebecca Kosten and I decided to enjoy the afternoon cool down with a drive to 
Bennett and area (Arapahoe County). We searched unsuccessfully for the Cassin's 
Kingbirds and Long-billed Curlew along Kiowa-Bennett Road. 


We had found Cassin's Kingbirds in Arapahoe in the past. A Northern Mockingbird 
along Arapahoe County Road 6 (at 4.4 miles east of Kiowa-Bennett Road) was a 
new county bird for us! A Burrowing Owl was on a fence along CR 18 (2.0 miles 
east of K-B road). 


On the trip back west, we stopped at the Interstate 70 Bennett Rest Stop only 
to find that is has been closed. No parking signs were all along the road; we 
found no legal place to stop in order to bird the rest stop. 


It was a beautiful evening. The super Moon (something like 15 percent brighter 
than most full moons, closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth) lit up the 
sky. 


We parked along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams) and watched the Perseids meteor 
shower. Many birds flew over (southern migration over the eastern side of Barr 
Lake). The sounds were identified included many Chipping Sparrows and an Upland 
Sandpiper. A dozen others had to be recorded as unknown. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders,
 
My wife and I got to stay in a cabin near Gould in Jackson County this weekend. 
We heard Boreal Owls both Friday and Saturday nights but did not see them. 

 
Saturday morning we searched unsuccessfully for the Red necked Grebes at Lake 
John. Then we drove to the Teller City Ghost Town. The self guided tour around 
this old silver mining town is interesting. We managed to find two Three toed 
Woodpeckers along the north and west sides of the loop. After sunset, we heard 
a Northern Pygmy Owl. 

 
Sunday we drove the Arapahoe National Wildlife Refuge loop. Many Sage Thrashers 
and a couple of Willets walked around. We assumed the Brewer's Sparrows were 
Plains Brewer Sparrows or could they have been Timberline? 

 
This morning we saw a Three toed Woodpecker across highway 14, across from the 
State Forest Visitor's Center. Another Three toed was seen when we walked the 
east side of Chambers Lake in Larimer County. 


Good birding!

From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Tue, 5 Aug 2014 20:37:49 -0600

Hello cobirders;

 

Super tired, here is a
brief summary of our Tuesday birding.  Bryan
Ehlmann and I returned from Park
 County around 2:00
am.  At 5:00 am, I met Oklahoma
birder Terry Underhill and we arrived at Mt Evans
Summit (Clear Creek County) a half hour after sunrise.

 

We could not find
the 15 White-tailed Ptarmigan that Bruce Montagne (of Michigan) found down the
west side of the gravel pullover/parking lot, just downhill of the paved
parking lot at the top of Mt Evans Road.  Many
American Pipits and a Mountain Sheep were there.

 

We walked around the
field east of the Summit Lake Parking lot for about 1.5 hours before finding
two White-tailed Ptarmigan.  The
Ptarmigan were east of the orange metal sign (road damage); not the electric
sign of same message.

 

No American
Three-toed Woodpeckers were found at the Echo Lake Campgrounds. We then hiked 
downhill along the Captain Mt 

Trail and found a male American Three-toed Woodpecker drumming (about 20 yards
from trailhead).

 

It started to rain
rapidly.  I could only briefly find one
Barrow's Goldeneye on Echo
 Lake.

 

Heading back toward Denver, we detoured to Mt.
Falcon Park
(Jefferson County). 
The rain had stopped the park was quite birdy. Dozens of Mountain Bluebirds, 
Western Bluebirds, 

Pygmy Nuthatches and a few Red-breasted Nuthatches, White-breasted Nuthatches
and Mountain Chickadees were between the upper parking lot and restrooms. One 
female Western Tanager was south/below 

the parking lot.

 

I then walked the Parmelee
Trail south from the restrooms.  A
Green-tailed Towhee family, many Lark Sparrows and a Lincoln's Sparrow were 
added to additional 

bluebirds and Chipping Sparrows.  A Dusky
Grouse was downhill/south of the yellow metal sign (downhill people yield to
uphill traffic).

 

I going to bed,
happy dreams and continued Good Birding!
