Hello birders,

Birded Barr Lake State Park for about three hours, starting at 4:00 pm. Best 
birding was the area northwest of the banding station. I ran into a large 
flock of birds while losing a pint of blood to mosquitoes. Well it felt like a 
pint of blood, there is no shortage of those pesky things. 


The loose flock included the Canada Warbler, two Orange crowned Warblers, six 
Yellow Warblers, 16 Wilson's Warblers and a Yellow breasted Chat. Also in 
the area, two Western Tanagers, nine Bullock's Orioles, more than a dozen 
House Wrens, dozens of Chipping Sparrows many of which were juveniles and one 
Hermit Thrush. 


On the island west of the banding station there were two Pectoral Sandpipers 
and an early Black bellied Plover. Many Pelicans and cormorants, etc. 


A Cassin's Vireo was in the non-cottonwood trees just west of the 
intersection of the main road and the south end of the Niedrach Boardwalk 
trail. I stopped counting egrets after seeing 12+ Great Blue Herons, 6+ Great 
Egrets and 36+ Snowy Egrets.  


I wandered the DIA Owl Loop at sunset and found two Burrowing Owls, a dark 
morph Red-tailed Hawk, many Swainson's Hawks and several kestrels. 
Burrowing Owl numbers at the infamous prairie dog town along Quency Street 
were down due to two Red-tailed Hawks standing in the middle of the area. No 
Short eared Owls came out while I could still see. 


Good Birding!

Dear Birdwatchers,
 

 You might have heard about the World Shorebirds Day to be held on 6 September, 
2014 for the first time. One of the key programs of this special day is the 
Global Shorebird Counting, which is a public awareness initiative. I ask 
Colorado bird enthusiasts to take part in the counting in any areas where 
shorebirds occur. Don't worry, if there are no huge number of shorebirds in 
your area. We don't ask money to help. We just ask to go out birding, what 
every birdwatcher love to do anyway. 

 

 Please consider supporting this initiative and register your location on our 
website. By registering a location you can be a part of a draw to win a 
fantastic bird book package worth about £150. 

 

 Registration of the location and more details about the Global Shorebird 
Counting Program can be found here: http://goo.gl/jNW1VG http://goo.gl/jNW1VG 

 

 The map with more than 340 already registered locations can be viewed here: 
http://goo.gl/ICpB7X http://goo.gl/ICpB7X 

 

 Thanks for your time and please help us to reach our goal of having a thousand 
locations registered by 6th of September 2014. 

 

 Best wishes, Szimi

Hello cobirders,

The Baird's Sparrow found yesterday by Glenn Walbek in El Paso County was
seen again today by Mel Goff and all along Drennan Road about 0.25 miles
west of Hemmingway Road.

Because of storms or construction, there has been no electricity at the

possible.

Good Birding!

Birding conditions were not great because of frequent showers and tall grasses 
and forbs. We did not find a wide variety of birds. However among the many 
mourning and e. c. doves, we located a single white-winged dove. 


At Crom L., we found many semipalmated sandpipers, two willets, and many 
killdeer.

Ok, consensus seems to be yellow rumped warbler. I haven't seen one of those
here before. I think the camera probably makes it look bigger than it was.
Also it's been suggested that it went after a moth rather than a
hummingbird.

 

Thanks for the help.

[Attachment(s) from Debbie Tyber included below] 

I have a video camera in my back that we use to look at wildlife coming
through the backyard. I happened to notice that a hawk of some sort came in
and took out a small bird today. What it took out I don't know since I have
no feeders out any longer (because of bears). Here is the photo that I
managed to capture. It's in the lower right hand corner. Would appreciate
any thoughts. We are looking at the top of the bird, but it has a
distinctive tail and what appears to be a yellow spot on the back. I also
have the video, but not sure I can send it.

Did you mean "Greater Yellowlegs" and "Lesser Yellowlegs" instead of 
Yellowthroats?

Birding conditions were not great because of frequent showers and tall grasses 
and forbs. We did not find a wide variety of birds. However among the many 
mourning and e. c. doves, we located a single white-winged dove. 

 
 At Crom L., we found many semipalmated sandpipers, two willets, and many 
killdeer.

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.

Subject: Black Swift in Colorado Springs and El Paso County

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!
