Subject: Return from Park County; Red Phalarope, Chatfield Reservoir; Caspian Terns, Cherry Creek Reservoir
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>

Hello cobirders;

Bryan Ehlmann and I birded in Park County the last five days. We enjoyed 
success in finding a few uncommon birds and owls. Most were reported to the 
Colorado Birding Society's RBA. I hope to find time to update the CoBus Trip 
Blog later tonight. 


On the way back to Denver today (Sunday) we made several stops. The Red 
Phalarope was not far off the eastern side of the marina sand spit at Chatfield 
Reservoir (Jefferson/Douglas). The phalarope was in Douglas County. If it moves 
west, I will think about returning for a Jefferson County sighting. 


While we scoped the lake for the Red Phalarope, two Sabine's Gull were observed 
flying below the dam, just north of the Plum Creek Delta. 


We hurried to Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) hoping to get a second Red 
Phalarope for the day. While we never found it, one Sabine's Gull was found 
flying around below the dam. 


A greater surprise was three terns on the poles outlining the southwest marina. 
The smallest had a black bill, reddish legs, uniform neck, breast and belly of 
a Forster's Tern. The larger were an adult Caspian Tern (large reddish bill and 
streaked black crown) and a juvenile Caspian Tern (slightly less reddish bill, 
spotted back). 


Dark overtook us before we were able to explore the rest of the park.

Continued Good Birding!

Birders,

Today at about 2:00 pm, Gary Witt and I saw a very cooperative female American 
Three-toed Woodpecker East of Echo Lake Lodge. 


This may be the same Three-toed that Richard Stevens reported several weeks 
ago. From the Echo Lake Lodge parking lot, go East and cross the Mt. Evans Rd. 
Head down the dirt road and when you come to the Denver University Outdoor 
Research sign on your right, listen for pecking sounds.

Hello birders,

Great morning, I saw the Long tailed Jaeger at Boulder Reservoir then drove to 
Boyd Lake State Park and saw the Long tailed Jaeger, Sabine's Gulls and Common 
Tern there! On the way home I stopped at Fossil Creek Reservoir for another 
Sabine's Gull and the Fort Collins Archery Park for a Semipalmated Plover. 


Worth the 50 mile drive for sure!

Hello cobirders,
I could not find the American Redstart reported yesterday at Chatfield
State Park.  Two Sabine's Gulls flew around below the dam.  No jaegers yet
here.  Maybe the northern jaegers will pass through?  At least one Eastern
Phoebe is still in the Plum Creek Delta area along with a Plumbeous Vireo.

Date: Mon, 15 Sep 2014 15:13:54 -0600
Hello cobirders,

I spent four hours at Barr Lake (Adams County). Many birders moving around this 
morning including two Sabine's Gulls, a Lesser Black-backed Gull, eight 
Pectoral Sandpipers, two Barn Owls (banding station), three Townsend's 
Warblers, Least Flycatcher, Dusky Flycatcher and Western Wood-pewee. The Lesser 
Black-backed Gull was found yesterday by Jerry Petrosky; he wanted another 
opinion before reporting the Gull. 


While my stay at Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) on Saturday was seven hours, 
I only stayed about an hour today. At least half a dozen Sabine's Gulls and a 
Caspian Tern were new for me. A Common Tern and two Townsend's Warblers were 
left overs from Saturday. 


Continued Good Birding!

Subject: Cherry Creek Reservoir, Arapahoe County Saturday 9/13/2014
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sat, 13 Sep 2014 23:38:44 -0600
Hello cobirders;

Bryan Ehlmann and I spent the last couple of weeks driving around mostly 
northern Colorado. I took advantage of the great late, cool summer day to 
circle Cherry Creek Reservoir on foot. While enjoying birding with others, the 
solitude today was a refreshing treat. 


I started at the Dam Tower parking area and headed south. The few gulls flying 
around were Ring-billed and California Gulls (in lesser numbers). A few Snowy 
Egrets hunted for food at the base of the dam. A Common Tern and two Black 
Terns flew around the south side of the lake (resting several times of the 
buoys. 


A Western Kingbird and Say's Phoebes hawked insects around the southwest 
marina. I scoped the lake often during the trek. While eyes were kept open for 
a possible phalarope, However, I did not see the two Red-necked Phalaropes 
reported by Glenn Walbek sometime during the day. 


Probably the highlight of the day was a male Hooded Warbler deep in the 
thickets just east of the Mountain Loop Parking Area. A thrush stayed hidden 
most of the time in the willows and remained unidentified. 


Many Chipping Sparrows and four Yellow-rumped Warblers fluttered around the 
Lake Loop. Several Song Sparrows and a Common Yellowthroat sang from the 
cattails between the Lake and Prairie Loops. 


The tall cattails at the Bird Observation Platform made scoping the lake from 
here quite frustrating. A Virginia Rail walked the shore below the rocks. 


The Eastern Phoebe reported yesterday by Schrab around the Cottonwood Creek 
Footbridge was not relocated. Two Great Blue Herons and three Black-crowned 
Night-Herons waited patiently for prey to swim by north of the footbridge. 


A few Barn Swallows flew over the Cottonwood Creek Wetlands. No Green Herons 
appeared among the cattails. 


A Plumbeous Vireo flew about the southern end of the Pipeline Trail. While a 
Black-crowned Night-Heron and a Great Horned Owl hunted along Cherry Creek just 
south of the Pipeline Trail. 


Tall cattails at the southeastern end of the lake made seeing any shore (if 
there was any) at this end. Two dozen American White Pelicans were seen through 
the foliage as it was blown by the wind. 


I scoped the reservoir from the northeastern end and found no uncommon gulls or 
the phalaropes. A few additional Song Sparrows and a Lincoln's Sparrow popped 
out of the willows along the picnic area west of the boat ramp. 


Finally reaching the Smoky Hill Group Picnic area, many birds were observed 
flying around. The best location was the small group of trees at the south end 
of the swim beach. It was here that a Tennessee Warbler, six Orange-crowned 
Warblers, two Wilson's Warblers, one Yellow Warbler and dozens of Chipping 
Sparrows were observed. 


Four additional Orange-crowned Warblers, a Wilson's Warbler and Cassin's Vireo 
were in the evergreen trees closer to the picnic pavilion. 


Hundreds of people scattered on the swim beach limited gulls to less than two 
dozen Ring-billed. A dozen Chipping Sparrows and a young American Redstart 
moved around the trees at the northwest corner of the swim beach. 


Dozens additional Chipping Sparrows, two Song Sparrows, a Spotted Towhee and 
two Orange-crowned Warblers popped out of the willows along the shore at the 
Dixon Grove Picnic area. 


Finally, many birds were found in the willows along the lake edge from Dixon 
Grove to the Dam Tower. These included another five Orange-crowned Warblers, 
half a dozen Yellow-rumped Warblers, and a Green-tailed Towhee. 


I drove through the Campgrounds but did not stop. No additional interesting 
birds came out. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello birders,

The last three afternoons I looked for a fallout at Cherry Creek State Park. It 
hasn't happened yet. Best bird the last three days has been an Osprey circling 
the swim beach. It's been very quiet. Winds yesterday and Monday were calm. The 
only gulls I could find on the swim beach were several dozen California Gulls 
and hundreds of Ring billed Gulls. 


Good birding

 We had quite an interesting experience this afternoon at our vacation home on 
the west end of Estes Park. I was scanning for birds from our deck, when I saw 
a woodpecker land on the side of a wooden telephone pole in front of our house, 
no more than 100 feet away. Looking at the bird through binoculars I at first 
assumed it was a Red-naped Sapsucker -- red throat, red on the top of the head, 
yellow belly. But I quickly realized it had absolutely no red on the back of 
the head (very white instead) and had a strong black border between the red of 
the throat and the rest of the head. It really looked like the male 
Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers I see at home in Maryland in the winter. The bird 
flew before I could get my camera. I tried to track it down, unsuccessfully, 
and then I made notes of my observation before going to books and online 
resources. Reviewing the illustrations and descriptions in several field 
guides, this seems to be a male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. I remembered articles 
on the subject of distinguishing Red-naped from Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers. I 
read online Tony Leukering's "In the Scope" article from the October 2007 
"Colorado Birds" about some female Red-naped Sapsuckers with all-red throats. 
Tony doesn't say whether the female he observed and photographed for that 
article had red on its nape. The overall size of its red throat seems bigger 
than the bird I observed. Unfortunately I cannot access online the article in 
the November/December 2006 "Birding" about "Variation in Red-naped and 
Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers", so that will have to wait until I get home to 
Maryland. I'm mindful that other observations of Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in 
Colorado have generally been on the plains and along the foothills (checking 
eBird and the CBRC database), so up here in Estes Park would be even more 
unlikely. Also, Tony's entirely red-throated female Red-naped Sapsucker was 
photographed in Rocky Mountain National Park only a couple of miles from where 
we are. And there is always the issue of an intergrade between the two species. 



Our neighborhood is mostly Ponderosa Pine and brushy areas up on the side of a 
hill, so I don't know how likely it might be that this bird will reappear. 
Whichever it turns out to be, it is a new species for our yard here.

Hello birders,

I went back to Barr Lake State Park today. Much different birds than a few days 
ago, I did find a few good ones. Two Townsends Warblers were just south (west?) 
of the Pioneer Trailhead. A Blue Grosbeak was down the Pioneer Trail. A Field 
Sparrow was along the canal at the bend where there is a picnic area east 
(north) of the canal. Below the dam I found a Cassin's Vireo and Tennessee 
Warbler in the Russian Olive Trees. Two Bullocks Orioles, a Western Kingbird, 
three House Wrens and a Western wood pewee found. 


Good Birding!

We had a nice, late-morning walk in the Matthews-Reeser Bird Sanctuary and 
along the north shore of Lake Estes in Estes Park today. There were lots of 
Wilson's Warblers and Yellow-rumped Warblers. As we explored the side trail 
that leaves the main trail on the right just east of the small pond, I spotted 
a beautiful male Prothonotary Warbler in the bushy, wet area on the left of 
that side trail. It really stood out from the Wilson's Warblers. I lost the 
bird after about a minute, and we couldn't relocate it, but there is lots of 
good habitat in the Bird Sanctuary area. I see them each year at home in 
Maryland, but it's particularly fun to see one here and add it to my Colorado 
list.

Dear Audubon Society, 
  
I wanted to inform the Fort Collins and Denver chapters of the Audubon Society 
that CSU will be hosting a public lecture on the 100th anniversary of the 
extinction of the Passenger Pigeon. The seminar will be delivered by Dr. 
Stanley Temple, a world-renowned avian ecologist and Professor Emeritus at the 
University of Wisconsin Madison. 

  
The talk will be at 6 pm Monday September 29th in 131 Behavioral Sciences at

Dr. Temple was hoping the public would attend his talk so we are trying to

We saw one Baird’s Sparrow this morning around 9:30 am on the north side of 
Drennan Road, about 1/4 to 1/2 mile west of Hemmingway. 

About 15 minutes later, we saw another one farther west, where there is a large 
patch of tall weeds on the south side of Drennan Rd. We also saw Cassins’s 
Kingbirds in that area. 

Both Hemmingway and Drennan had a lot of birds this morning!
