Subject: Search for Red throated Loon
From: "Terry Michaels tmcolorado AT gmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 14:52:38 -0600
Hello cobirders,

Found the two Surf Scoters below the rookery overlook at Chatfield State Park. 
Did not find the Red throated Loon and did not get message that it had flown 
until I looked for an hour. 


Rich Stevens said he did not find it at Cooley Lake or McLellan Reservoir.

Subject: Your Grebe photos
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 08:08:59 -0600
Hello Georgia and all,

In regard to your grebe photos,

I have always found the "look of the back" on the small grebes to be a little 
confusing, especially if there are waves in the lake. The facial pattern is 
more useful. In basic plumage a Horned Grebe usually has a clear, whitish cheek 
while a Eared Grebe will have some dusky color in the cheek. The whitish neck 
(horned) verses dusky (eared) neck can sometimes be difficult to see. What I 
look for the the shape of the head. The high point of a Horned Grebe's head is 
toward the back of the head, while the high point of an Eared Grebe's head is 
forward. Your photos show a Horned Grebe.

Subject: Weld County "Dump" Gulls
From: "coloradobirder AT yahoo.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: 24 Oct 2014 08:34:57 -0700
Quick stop for me on way to work. This morning "easily" 500+ Weld County "Dump" 
gulls (7th time for me this fall so location is reliable) were present on the 
dirt field at Weld CR 23 and 78 NE corner. Many were still streaming in from 
the SW--where Windsor Reservoir resides. If you ever wanted to do "gull study" 
here's your spot-tons of them, up close! I saw 2 Lesser Black-backed Gull 
(adults), tons of Ring-billed, many California, few Franklin's and 2-3 dozen 
Herring gulls. 


Thanks Gary Lefko, Nunn

Re-reading my last email, it is an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull hanging

Subject: Where are all the Sparrows? Birding Around Denver the last three days.
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 20:18:31 -0600
Hello cobirders;

Where have all the sparrows gone? I purchased a new camera Sunday and have not 
been able to find a sparrow at Chatfield Reservoir, Cherry Creek Reservoir, 
Rocky Mountain Arsenal or Aurora Reservoir. 


Between obligations and chores I have managed to get a few hours of birding in 
the last three days. 


Today, Tuesday I started at Aurora Reservoir where the adult Mew Gull was at 
the northwest corner. Later the many gulls swam out into the middle of the 
lake. No sparrows were around the few trees along the southwestern and southern 
sides. 


Next I stopped at Wheat Ridge Greenbelt (Jefferson). Except for a couple of 
magpies and one Northern Flicker I saw nothing for an hour. As I lamented about 
how this once top five birding location in Colorado has been deserted the last 
decade, a bird walked across the tree bridge trail, south of the boardwalk. At 
first I thought it might be a Worm-eating Warbler; however after longer looks 
it turned out to be an Ovenbird. 


Deserting the foothills I decided to look for Williamson's Sapsuckers at 
Genesee Mountain Park (Jefferson). My last dates for the park are 9/15, 9/16 & 
10/12. None was found today, nor any sparrows. 


Monday, I went to Aurora Reservoir (Arapahoe) hoping the Lesser Black-backed 
Gull would be at the scuba beach as it was on 10/15 (last Wednesday). 
Unfortunately it was in the middle of the lake, no photo. 


My target bird today was a Swamp Sparrow (although a Winter Wren would have 
been nice); neither was found at previous cattail marsh locations at Cherry 
Creek Reservoir and Rocky Mountain Arsenal. 


A two hour hike along the south side of Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe) did 
not find any little birds. Black-billed Magpies, gulls and a couple of flickers 
appeared to be the only birds around. 


I walked Rocky Mountain Arsenal (Adams) for about three hours. Only a couple of 
Killdeer walked the Havana Ponds mudflats. Highlight was a flyover Prairie 
Falcon. 


Sunday, with new camera I stopped by Chatfield Reservoir (Jefferson/Douglas). 
The Red-necked Grebe had been reported below the dam on Saturday. As I had 
hoped, the many boats on the lake pushed the Red-necked Grebe in Jefferson 
County. I had observed it a week ago in Douglas County. 


On the way home, I searched for the Burrowing Owl that had been along Picadilly 
Road (between 128th & 120th avenues). I appeared to be gone; however, a 
Burrowing Owl was 300 yards north of 120th avenue at 0.5 miles east of 
Picadilly Road. 


Highlight was an adult Ferruginous Hawk eating a prairie dog east of the 
prairie dog town at 3.4 miles east of Tower Road and 96th avenue. Two juvenile 
Ferruginous Hawks stood nearby and watched. The adult did not appear to feed 
the younger. After the adult flew, the juveniles did get a few bites. 


I put photos of one of the juveniles on the Recent Witness Photos link on the 
CoBus website. The photo is not the best; however, my range finder stated the 
bird was 100 to 110 yards from me. Do like my new camera, now if only I could 
find a sparrow. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello cobirders,

Jefferson County
Richard Stevens found an Ovenbird at Wheat Ridge Greenbelt. It was first west 
of the tree bridge trail at 20 yards south of the south end of the boardwalk. 
When Richard left, it had flown to the stacked pile of cut trees on the east 
side of the trail. 


Jefferson/Douglas County
David Suddjian found an adult Mew Gull at the S. Platte arm of Chatfield 
Reservoir. He relocated the Red-necked Grebe below the dam. 


Jackson County
Sue Ehlmann and I stayed near Gould the last couple of days. We heard a Boreal 
Owl two nights ago just west of Cameron Pass. Yesterday, we saw the American 
Three-toed Woodpecker north of the Colorado State Forest Visitor's Center and 
north of hwy 14. 


Good birding!

Hello birders, 

The Red necked Grebe is still at Chatfield State Park. Many gulls but nothing 
rare. My search for owls up Deer Creek Canyon and park didn't find any. Maybe a 
dozen Mountain Bluebirds and a Say's Phoebe were at the Park.

Hello cobirders,

Migration has slowed down or over at Barr Lake State Park. Few birds were at 
the banding station. The two Barn Owls are still in the nesting box. I could 
not find the Red necked Grebe among hundreds of Western Grebes and Cormorants. 
The Bonaparte's Gull and at least one Lesser Black backed Gull flew around. A 
House Wren seemed to be a late bird. Lots of Pelicans were there also.

Subject: Weld County "Dump" Gulls/Severance
From: "coloradobirder AT yahoo.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: 15 Oct 2014 08:39:54 -0700
Again this morning the Weld County "Dump" gulls were present on the dirt field 
basking in the brilliant morning sun at Weld CR 23 and 78 NE corner. I saw 
Ring-billed, California and Herring gulls. The gulls are very near edge of Weld 
CR 78 road. These photos are 20x optical zoom. It took 10 photos to get the 
entire flock at that zoom. 


See if you can ID more here, let me know: http://coloradobirder.ning.com/photo. 
Lower right of each photo is "Click Full Size".

Subject: Condors of Colorado
From: "Terry Michaels tmcolorado AT gmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 08:33:17 -0600
Hello birders,

As Amy wrote yesterday, the ABA has changed some rules for "countable"
species.  Any Condor born in the wild is now considered a "countable" bird.

Most if not all the Condors have radio tags and are monitored.  I did some
research and found the numbers of the five Condors that have been reported
flying over Colorado.  In all five cases, the birds were released birds,
not born in the wild.  Therefore, officially not "countable".  Still I for
one would have liked to see one in the skies over Colorado.

Good birding!

Hello cobirders,

Last Month, Richard Stevens turned over the Colorado Bird database
maintenance sponsored by the Colorado Birding Society and the Colorado Bird
Records Board over to Terry Michaels and myself.  We are still working on
security for putting the 110+ year old database on the internet.  Suggested
cBirds name was disagreed upon by several birders so we are calling it
Colorado Bird Watch.

Recent changes in the ABA listing rules bring into question the status of
California Condors in Colorado.  One visited Lands End on the Grand Mesa on
8/25/1998.  It left at dawn on 8/26/1998 and returned to the Grand Canyon.
A few lucky birders were able to see the bird that walked around the
Visitor's Center at Lands End.

Good Birding!

Subject: Barr Lake and Adams County Birding 10/6/2014
From: "Richard birdertoo AT hotmail.com [cobirders]" <cobirders-noreply@yahoogroups.com>

Hello cobirders;

After spending the last few days visiting relatives and friends in hospitals, I 
took the time today to walk around Barr Lake (Adams County). It was a fantastic 
fall day with mild winds and temperatures in the high 70s. 


It was not as "birdy" as hoped; however, a few nice birds kept my interest. A 
single Sabine's Gull and Lesser Black-backed Gull flew along the southern 
shore, making several passes during my visit. Both gulls had been reported 
previously (Sabine's, Stevens 9/15 & Lesser Black-backed Gull (Madsen:Clasen, 
9/23). 


Many shorebirds were on the mudflats and sand spit. Unfortunately, most of the 
uncommon ones appeared to have moved on elsewhere. One Semipalmated Plover was 
the most interesting. 


On the trip back to the banding station riparian area, two Barn Owls flew 
around near the northern point (north of banding station). 


Passerines were few in the riparian area. I did find one Townsend's Warbler 
with a couple of Yellow-rumped Warblers at the western edge of the banding 
station area. A few Chipping Sparrows remained (not as many as last week). At 
least one House Wren and empidonax flycatcher were still around. 


Neither the previously reported Swamp Sparrow nor Common Tern was found by me.

A drive around the DIA Owl Loop was uneventful. For the second trip, I could 
not find a Burrowing Owl at the Quency Street prairie dog town. Again, two 
Red-tailed Hawks stood in the middle of the town. My late dates are 10/27, 
10/4, 10/3, 10/1. Burrowing Owls could be gone here for 2014. No Short-eared 
Owls were observed today. 


Continued Good Birding!

Hello cobirders,  

Bryan and I stopped at Chatfield Reservoir State Park.  The Red Phalarope may 
still be there but we could not find it.  We did find a Red  necked 
Phalarope.  At least one Sabine's Gull and Eastern Phoebe were still there.

Hello Dixie,

Your goose looks like a Hockerganse (Chinese Goose). It appears to be a hybrid 
between the grey and white races. It has body and black bill of the grey form 
and the orangish bulb and white neck and breast of the white form.
