Hello cobirders,

For some unknown reason, only part of my last email was sent.............

Colorado
 lost long time birder Warren Finch today.  He was an avid birder and 
active in the DFO.  I first met Warren at Crown Hill Park April, 1996.  
He graciously walked a quarter mile back to show Sue Ehlmann and me the 
Sage Sparrow that he had found.  His knowledge of Colorado birding 
history was huge.  I enjoyed his stories and learned much from Warren.

RIP, Warren

Hello cobirders,

I added two photos to the Recent Witness Photo webpage on the Colorado Birding 
Society's website: 

http://coloradobirdingsociety.net16.net/recentwitnessphotos.htm

This is an orphan page (no links from other pages).

First photo is of the four young Cattle Egret on the Island at Ferril Lake, 
Denver City Park. 


Second photo: subscribers to "Colorado Field Notes" have been watching the 
expansion of Eurasian Collared-Doves across Colorado since they were first 
photographed on 9/1/1995. Last County to get reports was Clear Creek 6/9/2008. 


Good birding!

Hello cobirders,

We enjoyed the somewhat cooler day on Mt. Evans.  Several Brown capped Rosy
Finches landed on the rocky slope at the northwest corner of Summit Lake.
We searched for three hours for Ptarmigan but couldn't find any.  The
Barrow's Goldeneyes are still on Echo Lake.  The Echo Lake Three toed
Woodpeckers hid from us.  A Green tailed Towhee, a pair of Pine Grosbeaks
and two Lincoln Sparrows were found.  The many hummingbirds didn't include
a Calliope.

Stay cool!

miles east of Tower Road and 96th avenue. Mosquitoes are numerous at Barr Lake; 
we did not walk far there.

Hello cobirders,

Back from a long couple of weeks in the mountains, I left Bryan and Rich

more or less. 


Yesterday, they found an American Three-toed Woodpecker about 1/3 the way from

trailhead to A.M. Bailey. 


At dusk they found a Northern Pygmy-Owl northwest across the creek.

This morning they found a pair of American Three-toed Woodpeckers again 
northwest across the creek. Later they found a female White-tailed Ptarmigan 
with three young up the Ptarmigan Trail. GPS about 0.6 miles up the trail from 
the intersection of the main trail and the trail to A.M. Bailey. 


Other birds seen in the area: Fox Sparrow, MacGillivray's Warbler, Yellow 
Warbler, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Hammond's Flycatcher, 
Cordilleran Flycatcher, Red-naped Sapsucker, Williamson's Sapsucker. 


Good Birding!

I almost forgot. An adult Red tailed Hawk was along Highway 86 just east of the 
Kiowa Industrial Park. It had a leather strap on its leg. Escapee from 
falconer?

Hello,

I birded south of Denver today. My first stop was Castlewood Canyon State Park 
in Douglas County. A Mountain Bluebird fed a female at one of the bluebird 
boxes along the eastern entrance. A Canyon Wren sang below the overlook at the 
northeast corner of the park. 


Next I drove south to Lake Gulch Road then west to Castlewood Canyon Road. At 
least one male Bobolink flew around the hill south of the Winkler Ranch 
entrance. I could hear Common Yellowthroats and Yellow breasted Chats along the 
creek below the road. A Spotted Towhee and Cordilleran Flycatcher called from 
the hillside west of the road.Lark Sparrows were plenty, a Savannah Sparrow was 
along the creek. 


My final stop was the Electric station along Elbert Road. It is about 5 miles 
south of Highway 86. I walked from the station to the grove of trees about 0.5 
miles to the north. One Dickcissel flew out of the alfalfa twice in twenty 
minutes. Two more Dickcissels called. Finally, a Dickcissel perched on a dry 
thistle and gave great looks. Winds picked up and rain became a downpour. 


I returned to the western side of Castlewood Canyon Park, but could not find 
any owls. 


Good birding!

Hello cobirders,
 
I walked the south side of Barr Lake State Park. The Barn Owl flew around south 
of the banding station. Nothing uncommon was found. Both male and female 
Bullock's Orioles, Yellow Warblers and a couple of Warbling Vireos still 
around. 

 
Nine Burrowing Owls seen at the Quency Street site. No Long billed Curlews 
around. I missed the Red headed Woodpecker again at the 96th avenue/Umpire 
Street site. 


Good birding!

Hello birders,

I have nothing rare to report while sitting at the spot where a Red-headed 
Woodpecker was reported yesterday near 96th avenue and Umpire Road, Adams 
County. In the three hours I sat in the shadow along Box Elder Creek and 
watched planes takeout from DIA. They are still pretty low at this east end of 
the airport. The cottonwood grove at the creek was busy with activity. Many 
Mourning Doves, Bullock's Orioles and Western Kingbirds flew around. Eastern 
Kingbirds and House Wrens were in smaller numbers. Highlights were a 
Great-tailed Grackle begging for food and a Great Horned Owl which switched 
perches several times. The only woodpecker seen or heard was a male Northern 
Flicker. 


Later I drove to the field near Byers where Mountain Plovers were seen a couple 
of years ago. Zero today. 


No Long-billed Curlews were found along the DIA Owl Loop. Burrowing Owl count: 
9. Prairie Dogs have moved south of the 3.4 mile site east of 96th avenue and 
Tower Road. Burrowing Owls have followed. 


Good birding!

Hello birders, 

Before sunrise, we listened for Pygmy Owls at Reynolds Park. No owls called but 
we did hear a Common Poorwill. 


Later we hiked the loop Elkhorn to the top of Eagle's View to Oxen Draw back to 
Songbird. 


Highlights included a male Williams's Sapsucker south of the old service road. 
A Dusky Grouse crossed the trail about 300 yards farther south. We heard 
another Dusky Grouse at the top of Eagle's View. 


A Three tied Woodpecker was northeast of the Oxen Draw, Raven's Roost 
intersection. 


Back along the creek at the parking lot we found Virginia and MacGillvray's 
Warblers.

From: "torobbeau AT gmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders@yahoogroups.com>
Date: 02 Jul 2014 06:04:37 -0700
The summering hybrid Common/Barrow Goldeneye continues at the east Horsetooth 
gravel pit in Fort Collins. 

 

 This despite a fair amount of construction occurring around the pit as the 
city improves the reservoir system, including the replacement of reeds, 
grasses, and cattails along the eastern shore with mounds of dirt. Visiting 
birders should be mindful of the construction crews and vehicle traffic.

Hello cobirders,

I birded Rocky Mountain Arsenal for about three and a half hours.  While I
did not find the previously reported Little Blue Heron, there was a Sage
Thrasher along the trail to Havana Ponds.  The trail to the Rod and Gun
Club Pond had many Lark Sparrows, Western Wood pewees and a Rock Wren.  One
Wood pewee had a completely orange lower mandible.  Unfortunately, it did
not call.

Good birding!

I've been stopping at Wellington State Wildlife Area (Larimer CR 64 aka Weld CR 
100 aka Nunn Road) on way to work listening for Dickcissel. Today, patience 
finally paid off--had one maybe two singing this morning. They generally hang 
out east of the Golden Eagle nest area to the Weld County border (bottom of 
hill to east). 


Also, my wife just reported a immature Brown Thrasher coming to our backyard 
ground feeders--we've had a parental pair since spring so they nested 
"somewhere" on our 35 acres ... :-) 


Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn
