Hello Birders,

We have been on the move the last two days. Thursday we caught a Western 
Screech Owl at the Sand Dunes Monument. It was too early for Black Swifts at 
Zapata. 


This morning we found one of the Lucy's Warblers. Thanks Richard Stevens for 
straightening out confusing directions. 


Continuing wandering around Montezuma County today. Will report if we find the 
Pygmy Owl. 


Good Birding!

4/16/14 - I spotted a flock of about 5 Franklin's gulls on Bud Mielke 
Reservoir, west of S. Taft Ave., Loveland, Larimer CO. The reservoir is about a 
mile west of Taft on SW 28th street. At least I think they're Franklin's gulls. 
Photos can be viewed here: CLICK HERE 

I've notice that Bonaparte gulls have been reported recently so maybe I'm 
misidentifying them.

Hi all

 

Spent some time birding with friends Jon and Robbie from the UK today as the
blistering heat continues  (well blistering for April 11th up here ! ) with
temps up to 75 degrees

 

Snowmass Village (Pitkin County) had Evening Grosbeaks, Cassin's Finches,
Fox Sparrow, Red-naped Sapsucker, but no Rosy Finches to be found. 

 

The Frying Pan River near Basalt (Eagle Cty) had a beautiful pair of
Barrow's Goldeneyes, and another singing Fox Sparrow, a distant Goshawk and
five Bighorn Sheep. Two Ospreys were at the nest at the old Emma Store by
hwy82 in Basalt.  Spring Park reservoir above El Jebel, now 90% ice free,
hosted hundreds of ducks including scores of Barrow's Goldeneyes (over 100),
several Ring-billed Gulls, but no sign of the Franklin's Gulls that Tom
McConnell saw this morning. Three small peeps were distantly with some
Killdeer at the north end this evening, but I did not identify them to
species in the fading light.

 

At home (Carbondale, Garfield Cty) the first winter Harris's Sparrow is
still here and now singing daily and starting to molt into adult plumage. Up
to three Lincoln's Sparrows persist, and up to 25 Pinyon Jays are visiting
occasionally throughout the day. Nearby there's been up to 170 Barrow's
Goldeneyes (last Friday) on Coryell Ranch ponds (private), presumably the
birds that have now moved up to Spring Park reservoir. The Bald Eagles at
Aspen Glen have three eaglets now visible in the nest. 

 

Good birding all

From: <lefkogt AT yahoo.com>
Date: 11 Apr 2014 09:03:05 -0700
This morning in our yard we had a "Yellow-shafted" Northern Flicker. I walked 
Weld CR 114/85 SE corner and had four visual sightings of Chestnut-collared and 
3+ audio out in the far fields. Dover Reservoir had Golden Eagle and American 
Crow (rare for Nunn). Crom Lake had lots of usual birds (American Avocet, 
Greater Yellowlegs, all kinds of ducks with an impressive 34 Green-winged Teal. 
I had a Brewer's Sparrow at WCR 86/31. 


You need a USDA permit to enter the Chestnut-collared site. I am leading 
Boulder County Audubon trip 
(http://coloradobirder.ning.com/events/is-it-spring-yet) next Saturday there if 
you are interested in attending and seeing possible Chestnuts - 
http://coloradobirder.ning.com/events/is-it-spring-yet. There is a CPER sign on 
gate that directs folks to building two miles to east to ask for permission to 
enter--I'm asking USDA/ARS if that local sign aligns with their required permit 
policy. 


Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

few farms that raise SeEtta's mentioned game birds (on web) which we see in our

I think CObirders and COBUSbirders will get a big kick out of this blog, as I 
am. No matter how busy I am, I can never resist peeking at his latest 
adventure. 


Take a look at his “Day 96” and then you’ll find yourself backtracking through 
his entries to see what else has happened to him (plenty!) as he visits 
wildlife refuges, meets good Samaritans, braves the crazy East Coast weather 
this winter, and raises money for wildlife habitat. 


Not only his amusing & thoughtful commentary, but the wonderful birds he finds, 
and his excellent photography, are a reward for 5 min. a day of distraction 
from our daily worries. Consider donating, also—that, after all, is the 
objective. He’s headed this way—consider offering to host. 


I have NO relationship with this guy, but thank Sandra Laurson for sending me 
the website in January so I’ve been able to travel vicariously. Enjoy.

Subject: Grand Valley Audubon Society Owl Prowl - Saturday April 5
From: Dick Filby <dickfilby AT hotmail.com>
Date: Mon, 7 Apr 2014 22:46:30 +0100
Hi all

 

On Saturday 30 folks joined me for a fun afternoon in rural, and not so
rural, Mesa and Delta Counties, in search of owls. In the evening some of us
continued to the Grand Mesa, despite a poor weather forecast of wind and
snow as it didn't look bad up there, looking up from Clifton.  The weather
forecast was incorrect - it was idyllic up there early evening!

 

We started out in search of Burrowing Owls near the Utah border, and enjoyed
at least four Golden Eagles as well as plenty of Horned Larks and
White-tailed Prairie-Dogs. It took much searching before a couple of us
glimpsed a Burrowing Owl, very distantly, that unfortunately promptly
disappeared.  We then headed into the nearby washes and searched the
tamarisks for Long-eared Owls. After finding an owl pellet under a roost
tree, we later had a glimpse of a flying owl, before seeing a female
incubating on a nest in the depths of a tamarisk thicket. Watching from a
distance with a scope, she seemed unconcerned - indeed she was facing away
the whole time we were there, so although the views were less than stellar,
we felt very privileged to see her at all. We left her in peace, wishing her
good luck for breeding success and lack of disturbance.  Please don't ask me
where she was!  Next stop was Highline State Park where the Great Horned
Owls have taken over a heron nest, and all the herons have left the other
nests in the tree! That's the way it works!  It was very nice to enjoy great
views in the scope.

 

Heading back east along 6/50 we spotted some aerial action in the form of
two Peregrine Falcons doing their best to catch a Franklin's Gulls. Despite
having a tag team of combatants intent of a meal, it seemed the Franklin's
managed to avoid become dinner. Dave then invited us to his yard where a
Western Screech Owl has been in the nest box every day for recent weeks, but
unfortunately it was not present today. We tried other boxes in the Redlands
later, but all without success.  

 

In Clifton we tried for a Barn Owl, but it wasn't co-operating, although
three Ospreys flying around provided some excellent alternative viewing.  By
now it was nearly dark so those of that were up-for-it decided to head up
onto the Grand Mesa, as the weather looked fine up there.

 

Well, the weather was just fine when we arrived. We stopped at dusk and
search the lower aspen groves for a Northern Pygmy Owl, but not a hoot or
any other sign..  With the weather still and perfect for listening, we
headed up on top and stopped at many spots on both sides of the summit,
hoping to hear a Boreal Owl, but tonight they just were not singing. Soon it
started to snow, although there was no wind, we decided that we'd had the
best of the day and so we left the 12F temps behind and went homewards. A
Porcupine was at the side of the road as we headed down. 

 

For me, I had to head back to my desk to finalise details of next year's
Snow Leopard tour and get it on sale.

 

All in all a good day, filled with humor and good company. 

 

Thanks all and good birding,

Hello cobirders,

Gunnison County
Richard Stevens reports from the Waunita Hot Springs lek east of Gunnison.

Three and only three Gunnison Sage-Grouse were on the traditional lek, 300-400 
yards east of the parking area, and departed shortly after civil twilight. 
Another 39 birds were far to the north and behind willows. Their number was 
only revealed when they flew shortly before sunrise. 


From all the complaints, there were many disappointed birders.

Good birding!

Subject: Dusky Grouse - Black Canyon update and help request
From: Dick Filby <dickfilby AT hotmail.com>
Date: Fri, 4 Apr 2014 17:56:38 +0100
Hi all

 

I just took a call from visiting birders Mike and Lee from California,
currently at the Black Canyon, Gunnison. They were looking for Dusky Grouse
last evening and this morning but struck out.  

 

Anyone considering visiting in the next few days should be aware that the
south rim road is still closed (snow) and will be for "some time yet". The
staff in the visitor centre had not heard of anyone seeing any Dusky Grouse.
The birders reported today that in their search they found plenty of small
animal tracks, but no grouse tracks.

 

If anyone has any suggestions for Mike and Lee for anywhere else to search
that would be very much appreciated - please reply to me and I can pass on
the information

 

Many thanks and best regards

 

Dick Filby

Carbondale, CO

Subject: First of year Western Meadowlark, Rocky Mtn. Natl. Park, Larimer Co. 3/31
From: Jim Nelson <kingfishers2 AT verizon.net>
Date: Mon, 31 Mar 2014 23:18:14 -0500 (CDT)
Continuing our visit in the Estes Park area, we found two Western Meadowlarks 
in Morraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) this afternoon. Also 
enjoyed our first Mountain Bluebirds in the same area. eBird has no Western 
Meadowlark reports around Estes Park or RMNP (though we met a birder at Lake 
Estes yesterday who saw 4 near the lake). I also noted that several others were 
reporting Mountain Bluebirds today in RMNP.

Subject: First of year Western Meadowlark, Rocky Mtn. Natl. Park, Larimer Co. 3/31
From: Jim Nelson <Kingfishers2 AT verizon.net>
Date: Mon, 31 Mar 2014 23:18:14 -0500 (CDT)
Continuing our visit in the Estes Park area, we found two Western Meadowlarks 
in Morraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) this afternoon. Also 
enjoyed our first Mountain Bluebirds in the same area. eBird has no Western 
Meadowlark reports around Estes Park or RMNP (though we met a birder at Lake 
Estes yesterday who saw 4 near the lake). I also noted that several others were 
reporting Mountain Bluebirds today in RMNP.

Subject: Probable Broad-tailed Hummingbird, Colorado Springs, El Paso Co. 3/30
From: Jim Nelson <Kingfishers2 AT verizon.net>
Date: Mon, 31 Mar 2014 09:01:12 -0500 (CDT)
My brother lives in Colorado Springs east of the Broadmoor Hotel. He called me 
yesterday afternoon to tell me that a hummingbird had buzzed by him and stopped 
to feed briefly on the vinca that were the only flowers blooming in his yard. 
He described the whistling sound that the bird made as it flew by and said it 
was green on the back. From the description, it sounds like it could only be a 
male Broad-tailed Hummingbird since a male Rufous Hummingbird would be 
obviously orange. I just checked eBird and could not find any hummingbird 
reports for Colorado, but Broad-tailed has been reported in New Mexico.
