Cobirders,

Birdsong is a passion for Don Kroodsma. Ripley’s “Believe It or Not” 
reported Don’s remarkable finding that a Brown Thrasher learned and re-sung 
over 2,000 different songs. Don has studied how birds acquire their 
vocabulary, what the different songs of a single bird mean, and how 
evolution has resulted in amazing variations. Ninety million years ago, 
simply stated, songbirds, who learn their songs and often have great 
variety, diverged from birds who have their songs hard-wired into their 
DNA. But Don wonders why Brazilian Sedge Wrens can precisely imitate a 
rival’s song, but North American Sedge Wrens can’t imitate at all.

Don is the author of *The Singing Life of Birds*, a fascinating 
investigation into the varieties of birdsong, *Birdsong for the Seasons*, 
with stories from a year of listening to birds and trying to understand 
what a bird has on its mind when it sings different songs. Don’s ample 
recordings on the accompanying CDs illustrate his findings.

Thursday, May 26, Don Kroodsma will be sharing stories from his new book 
*Listening 

to a Continent Sing*, from his ten week bicycle ride from the Atlantic to 
the Pacific. His presentation will be at 7:00 p.m. at the Denver Museum of 
Nature & Science, and sponsored by the Museum and Bird Conservancy of the 
Rockies. Go to DMNS.org, Learn, Adult, After Hours to purchase tickets.

I guarantee you’ll be fascinated by what you learn.

Larry Modesitt

 

Chair, Board of Directors

Subject: Ken Caryl Valley and vicinity
From: David Suddjian <dsuddjian AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 19:55:55 -0600
I had posted back in late April about a *Wilson's Snipe* that was winnowing
near my Ken Caryl Valley home, with a marshy area along Massey Draw below
my home. It seemed to stop by May 1. Then on May 21 I was walking at the
marshy area and heard a snipe chipping from the wetland. I presume it was
the same bird, but if so, I'm not sure how it eluded detection for 3 weeks
in an area to which I pay close attention. Anyway, I'm glad it is still
there, and I've heard it chipping almost daily since through today, and it
has winnowed at night a bit, too. The *Virginia Rail *I heard from my home
the other night is still there, too, in the same marsh patch, and a *Common
Yellowthroat* was there on May 22.

On May 22 I had my first local *Common Nighthawk* over my home, and that
day an adult *Bald Eagle* was passing north of Ken Caryl Avenue near
Kipling, probably heading back to Marston. Forays up to the forested
regions of Massey Draw and Lost Canyon in Ken Caryl Ranch produced 8 and 5
singing *Ovenbirds*, respectively. All were in expected spots that are used
by breeders.

Today 5/25 I explored around the south park of South Valley Park, and
encountered a male *Blue Grosbeak* and a male* Indigo Bunting*. The latter
was with several *Lazulis*. The marshy area mentioned by Scott Somershoe
had 2 *Virginia Rails*, 1 *Sora*, and 1 *Wilson's Snipe* (chipping). At one
point I was hearing the grunting Virginia Rail at the same time as a
singing *Virginia's Warbler*. Hearing both of those at the same time
probably doesn't happen too often, right? Grassland in this area had a
singing *Grasshopper Sparrow* and 2 singing *Savannah Sparrows*.
Scott's *Eastern
Phoebe *was still along Deer Creek at the junction with South Valley Road,
where the creek flowing from South Valley Park crosses under Deer Creek
Road. Downstream along Deer Creek from Cougar Road there was a *Red-eyed
Vireo* and *Black-chinned Hummingbird*. An adult *Bald Eagle* was soaring
over the Massey Draw notch in the hogback near C470, perhaps the same bird
I had on May 22.

Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 17:32:53 -0700 (PDT)
Nice weather, relatively few new captures, recaught lots of birds banded 
earlier this season.  Here are the 18 new captures for the day:

Western Wood-pewee 2
Least Flycatcher 1
House Wren 1
Gray Catbird 3
Yellow Warbler 4 new, 2 returns (from 2014 and 2015)
American Redstart 1
Common Yellowthroat 1
Yellow-breasted Chat 1 new, 1 banded 2013
Lesser Goldfinch 1

Open daily, weather permitting, through June 2, EXCEPT for May 30. It is 
almost always better to visit early in the morning. We are opening nets at 
6:30, and most days will have birds back at the station by 7:15. There are 
school groups every weekday, arriving about 9:45. We aim to close by noon 
most days, earlier if it is very hot, very cold, or very windy.

Subject: Bobolink, Elbert County 5/24
From: Eric DeFonso <bay.wren AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 18:27:46 -0600
Hi all,

Apologies for the delayed report, but while on a county-busting trip
yesterday to Elbert County I had singing *Bobolinks* along Elbert Road,
about 3 miles S of Kiowa. They were too far away to get easy visuals on,
and as you may know that road is not the easiest to bird from. The same
field also hosted displaying *Wild Turkeys*, with one in particular hosting
a covey of about 6-7 females.

The Colorado County Birding site mentions this area as being reasonable for
Dickcissels. That's actually what I was thinking I might find in those
fields, but I wasn't able to turn up any. I also didn't find any Cassin's
Sparrows amongst the yuccas along and around Bennett Road.

A few other eyebrow-raising finds were made at the large pond just south of
CO 86 about 8 miles east of Kiowa. It was surprisingly active and birdy
with several duck species including many *Redhead* and a lone *Canvasback*,
as well as both *American Avocet* and a single *Black-necked Stilt*. I also
had a single *Great-tailed Grackle* there.

Subject: Park County May 24
From: David Suddjian <dsuddjian AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 10:17:39 -0600
It was a lovely day to be in Park County yesterday, although the winds and
heat waves picked up by late morning and made birding challenging. I
visited most of the significant water bodies, although Antero remains
closed and I skipped Spinney due to wind and too much heat distortion...
the white pelicans were vague blobs of white, so I figured anything smaller
(which is everything else), would be nothing but a frustration.

Various forested and riparian stops heading up Highway 285 through the
watershed of the North Fork of the South Platte found most of the expected
migrants back in their places. Of note were 2 *Fox Sparrows* (relatively
rarely encountered in Park down from higher mountain breeding sites),
1 *Blue-gray
Gnatcatcher* (Rim Rock Road), and 17 *Cedar Waxwings* (Wandcrest Road; only
my second time for this species in Park). A *Blue Jay* at Cline Road
northeast of Shawnee was my 5th for Park County. The riparian at the Rocky
Mountain Regional Pack String station near Shawnee concentrates migrants,
which this time included 16 *Wilson's Warblers*, 8 *Yellow*, 2
*MacGilivray's*, and 1 *Orange-crowned*, 2 *Dusky Flycatchers*, *Fox
sparrow*, *Lincoln's Sparrows*, *White-crowned Sparrow*, and *Gray Catbird*.
A male *Wood Duck* flew by here, notable for Park. A *Northern Goshawk* was
at Cline Road. Beaver Ponds at CR 84 also had migrant landbirds, plus
2 *Virginia
Rails* and 1 *Sora*, and a *Sora* was at the pond at Kenosha Pass. A pair
of *Peregrine Falcons* was soaring to the north of Kenosha Pass, viewed
with a spectacular array of snowy peaks as a backdrop.

The large pond on CR 34 had 72 *Eared Grebes*, but the emergent vegetation
they like for nesting has not yet emerged. Also 6 *Least Sandpipers*,
2 *Baird's
Sandpipers*, 2 *Long-billed Dowitchers*, 12 *Wilson's Phalaropes* and
2 *Red-necked
Phalaropes*. As far as shorebirds go, this was the day's most diverse spot,
and *Am. Avocet*, *Wilson's Phalarope* and *Spotted Sandpiper *were the
only shorebirds noted at multiple spots.. An *Osprey* was the lone
highlight for Tarryall Reservoir.

I made a short detour up CR 211 north of Lake George to revisit an area
where I found *Virginia's Warblers* nesting last year. I heard two singing
at about 3.5 miles up the road, in a burned area with regrowing aspen,
sparse Douglas-fir and Ponderosa. This area is disjunct from the species'
other area of occurrence in Park, which is south of Guffey in association
with Gambel oak.

Along the Platte downstream of  Lake George at Hwy 24 a pair of *American
Dippers* has a nest under the highway bridge, and 2 *Soras* called there.
There is an old bridge immediately adjacent to the wy 24 bridge that is
closed to vehicles, and while I moved across this bridge I flushed what
seemed to be an *Eastern Phoebe*. But I saw the bird only with the naked
eye for just about 4 seconds as it flew up to a shrub, then down across the
river and I lost it and could not refind it. I think that is what it was
but I am not certain. This would be an exceptional find for Park, so if
anyone is going to the Lake George area, take a look. I can provide more
detailed instructions. Nothing out of the ordinary at Lake George itself,
but I saw *Great-tailed Grackles*, and this seems to be maybe the only
regular spot for the species in Park.

Plamman Lake on CR 98 had 2 tardy *Buffleheads*. Feeders at a residence
there had my only *Evening Grosbeaks* (2) and *Cassin's Finches* (8) for
the day.

Eleven Mile Reservoir had a *Common Loon* in partial alternate, a male
*Red-breasted
Merganser*, 6 *Black Terns*, 2-4 *Forster's Terns*, and a *Great Egret*.
The nesting island off Witcher's Cove campground had several *Am. White
Pelicans* that appeared to be sitting on nests by posture and setting.
However, with the distance and heat waves it was hard to see confirming
details. I think this would be a new nesting location... at least they did
not nest there these past 2 years that I noticed. *California Gulls*,
*Double-crested
Cormorants* and* Great Blue Herons* were all nesting there, too, as usual.
I counted and estimated about 1,900 California Gulls at the island and
elsewhere on the reservoir (99% adults). Only spotted 1 *Ring-billed Gull*
(adult). An adult *Bald Eagle *was flying near Cross Creek Campground near
the lake's NW corner. I had a pair of adults in the same spot at the
beginning of June in 2015. The species seems to be rare in Park in the
summer. I suppose there is a chance for a nest, but I have not had any real
leads yet.

The South Platte crossing of Hwy 59 near Hartsel had another tardy *Bufflehead
*and a *Western Kingbird *(pretty uncommon migrant in Park). A *Mountain
Plover* was in private grassland south of Antero Reservoir (south of Hwy
24).

For the record, ducks noted for the day, other than the above mentioned
Wood Duck, Buffleheads and Red-br. Merg, included *Gadwall, Am. Wigeon,
Mallard, Blue-winged, Cinnamon and Green-winged Teal, Nor. Shoveler,
Redhead, Ring-necked Duck, Lesser Scaup, Common Merganser* and *Ruddy Duck*.

Hi everyone, 

The WEVI first reported by Jared Del Rosso is still present this morning at the 
deKoevend Park in Centennial, in what I think is exactly the same spot where it 
was initially found. I got some point-blank sound recordings too, will likely 
share them on my Facebook later today.

Red-headed Woodpecker  and Common Loon clearly seen today at CCSP. The 
woodpecker was in the trees on the shoreline at Tower Loop and the Loon 
was diving near Dixon Grove "point".  Many other very nice birds, in 
addition, on a lovely Spring day there.

Chipping Sparrow seems more likely. The mustache stripe is much darker in 
Rufous-crowned.

Subject: Black Swift in Pueblo 5/24
From: Brandon Percival <flammowl17 AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 24 May 2016 18:16:21 -0600
I had a little time to go to Osprey Picnic Area in Rock Canyon, below
Pueblo Reservoir dam in Pueblo County, after some clouds came in from
the north this morning (around 8:45am).  I noticed a good number of
swallows flying around, and looked way high up in the clouds, and
picked out one Black Swift with them.  I didn't see other ones.

Cloudy mornings in late May/early June, below Pueblo Reservoir dam,
seems to be a good place to look for Black Swifts.  The last few years
I've seen them here, as they are migrating through to the mountains to
breed.  I didn't detect any migrant land birds in the trees and bushes
here unfortunately.

Subject: Yellow-throated Vireo in Bent County
From: Duane Nelson <dnelson1 AT centurytel.net>
Date: Tue, 24 May 2016 16:13:38 -0600
Birders,

Spring migration is not quite done in southeast Colorado. This morning, 
at Van's Grove on the NW side of John Martin Reservoir, I had a singing 
Yellow-throated Vireo, singing Chestnut-sided Warbler, and singing 
American Redstart. Within minutes of seeing these birds, it got quiet, 
and I can't say for sure that the birds did not quickly move on. It was 
cool, cloudy, with upslope east winds this morning, a possible reason 
the birds were grounded.

Congrats to Chris Wood and his team for breaking the Colorado Big Day record by 
a lot!  Also, thanks to his group for finding birds in Pueblo County on 14 
May, which helped Pueblo County reach 218 species of birds on that day, a 
record total number of species for the Annual Pueblo County Spring Count.  A 
big thanks to all the other birders that we able to help out with this years 
count, we had a lot of helpers from out of town, as well, as all the locals. 
 It will be hard to reach that total again in a single day.   

The Pueblo County Fall Count is scheduled for 17 September 2016, I believe.

Subject: Re: White-eyed Vireo - deKoevend Park (Arapahoe)
From: Jared Del Rosso <jared.delrosso AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 24 May 2016 06:51:46 -0700 (PDT)
This morning, Gary Witt and I watched the White-eyed Vireo sing and feed 
near the walking bridge that connects the South Suburban Ice Arena to 
deKoevend Park in Centennial, CO (Arapahoe). This is just a bit south of 
where the bird has been since the 18th. I regretted not having my camera 
with me, as the bird perched very close to the bridge and in the open, 
singing in the warm morning light.

I've met a few birders looking for the vireo later in the afternoon and 
early evening. Most don't hear it or find it then. I know that I haven't 
heard it during the few walks that I've taken at deKoevend in the afternoon 
and evening. I've heard the bird, however, every morning (6:30-8:30 AM) 
since the 18th and been able to spot it most mornings. So if you still hope 
to see the vireo, you may want to try to get to the park early.

The bird seems to be slowly but surely moving south along the High Line 
Canal, five or ten meters per day. If it continues at this rate, it'll end 
up in my yard in two and a half months. (Does eBird accept future bird 
reports?) Or maybe it'll move on to the Dry Creek Trail, where Mary 
O'Connor found a White-eyed Vireo in June 2014.

Subject: Colorado Big Day -- 232
From: Christopher Wood <pinicola AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 24 May 2016 09:30:25 -0400
Greetings from Ithaca,

As many of you know, I had the great fortune to do a big day in Colorado
with Jessie Barry, Marshall Iliff, Tim Lenz, Brian Sullivan, and Andrew
Farnsworth, colleagues and good friends who I’m privileged to work with at
the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. We had a tremendous day in Colorado with a
final tally of 232 species (and one flat tire). We also submitted about 50
checklists during the day that are in eBird and there is a complete write
up and species list  at the end of the email that goes to All About Birds.

None of this would have been possible without the great birding community
in Colorado, and I join the entire team in thanking all of you. First, a
generous thanks to the thousands of Colorado birders who use eBird. Even in
the 13 short years I’ve been away from Colorado, bird populations have
changed in sometimes dramatic ways and your sightings helped us plan long
before we arrived in Colorado. While the intended goal of eBird data are to
advance science and conservation efforts, there is no question that these
data were incredibly helpful in planning the big day.

Thanks to dozens of individual birders in Colorado provided broad to
specific information on birds, in particular Alec Hopping, Joey Kellner,
Tony Leukering, Bill Maynard, Polly Nelder, Duane Nelson, Mark Peterson,
Brandon Percival, Pearle and Clif Sandstrom-Smith, Dave Silverman, Jane
Stulp, and Glenn Walbek.

Three individuals went far above and beyond and spent countless hours
helping us: Alec Hopping, Mark Peterson and Duane Nelson. Alec Hopping, who
will join us at Cornell next fall, volunteered to help us scout morning
locations. While this may sound fun, it largely consists of going along the
route and finding territories of several target species — forgoing the best
of spring migration to find pairs of Gray Flycatchers that may sing late in
the day. Fun(ish). Mark Peterson, whose combined knowledge of Colorado
birds and big days is unrivaled, spent countless hours answering numerous
queries on topics ranging from specific sites to road conditions to
specific details on the activities of individual birds from weeks to a few
hours before the big day.

Duane Nelson was particularly helpful with Bent county and was directly
responsible for 7 species we would have otherwise not seen. Ironically this
did not include Piping Plover (because of time we lost with our flat tire).
Around the world, no one has put in more effort and made such a difference
in ensuring that a species persist within a state. Duane, thanks for your
help on the Big Day, and for being a mentor, friend, and demonstrating what
one person’s passion can do. You’ve inspired me and many others.

Finally, many thanks to the great people who work to protect and manage
natural areas for biosiversity in Colorado both on private and public
lands. Colorado is blessed with a tremendous mix of national parks,
national forests and grasslands, national wildlife refuges, state parks,
state wildlife areas, private nature reserves, state lands privately
managed and private lands. All play critical roles in conservation of birds
and biodiversity and it should be no surprise that to see such a mix of
birds, required us to visit a selection of almost all of these (national
parks were too far from the route to visit). In particular, we'd like to
thank the great people at Chico Basin Ranch including the entire Phillips
family, Juliana Frost, and Nancy Gobris who generously allowed us to visit
the ranch. 27 new species for the day at Chico at 3 in the afternoon — what
an amazing place. And many thanks to Dallas May for access to his
incredible property protecting some of the finest grasslands I've seen in
southeastern Colorado.

232 species! Read more here: http://tinyurl.com/jlceunc

Warmest wishes and many thanks,

Chris Wood, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Ithaca, NY

Subject: Wood Duck and 12 babies at busy municipal park, El Paso County
From: Dale Adams <dasaadams AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 23 May 2016 21:01:43 -0700 (PDT)
Had a very strange experience today walking on the grassy area just north 
and west of Prospect Lake, Memorial Park, Colorado Springs. As I was 
walking along, a female Wood Duck played like she was injured and moved 
away from me fluttering her wings somewhat similar to what killdeer will 
do. At the same time I heard high pitched squeaks coming from nearby. There 
were 12 little Wood Ducklings huddled together in the grass. The mother 
came back to them and all 13 trundled away together. Given the lack of 
habitat for Wood Ducks at Memorial Park and that Wood Ducks have not been 
reported here before in eBird, I am mystified that a mother and 12 babies 
came to be in the middle of it.  With how busy Memorial Park is, I hope 
that the mother Wood Duck and young ones do OK!

Cheers,
Dale Adams

Subject: Cycling Big Day: the Good, the Bad, the Windy (Long)
From: Scott Somershoe <ssomershoe AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 23 May 2016 18:30:09 -0600
All,
I did a cycling big day on 21 May 2016, a week after everyone around the globe 
did big days. I had a lot of reasons for delaying a week. I started at 
Chatfield SP way before dawn and was mostly in Jefferson and Douglas Cos with 
some time in Arapahoe. Anyway, I had a fairly solid plan, some birds were 
scouted out, and all the logistics were worked out (food, drinks, bikes, etc). 
I didn't find any super rare birds, but all things considered, i.e. first 
pretty warm day and 15-20 mph winds from 10:30 am or so, I did extremely well. 


First a HUGE thanks to David Suddjian who gave me tons of ideas and pointers on 
how to approach this and where to find certain species. AND thanks to Joey 
Kellner who encouraged me to start insanely early, helped justify my route, and 
gave me ideas on where to go as well. 


Here's the Good, the Bad, and the Windy:
I started at Chatfield SP at 3am. Before I rolled out, I had Great Horned Owl, 
Gray Catbird, Canada Goose, and Eastern Phoebe on her nest. 


At 3:15, I started biking UP Deer Creek Canyon. Numerous Common Poorwills 
calling up the canyon, a few catbirds and chats heard over a steady headwind. S 
Valley Park has pretty easy Sora and Virginia Rails right now, and I had Sora 
calling while riding up the hill to the marsh. The Virginia took about 3 
seconds to get. No nighthawk, but they are more crepuscular so I didn't really 
expect one at 4am. 


The full moon lit everything nicely and the 7ish mile climb to my dawn spot on 
High Grade Rd was surprisingly easy (that's relative!). Missed all owls at 
stops on way up. 


Dawn on High Grade Rd for an hour got me all the expected species and a couple 
more, i.e. Wild Turkey (sort of expected thanks to a local homeowner who 
eBirded them here several times). It was time well spent. On the way down I was 
insanely cold, but I added Pygmy Nuthatch, not where I scouted them, Cord 
Flycatcher, MacG Warbler and more. From my dawn spot down to S Deer Creek Rd, I 
had at least 6 Ovenbirds. A dozen Virginia Warblers as well along the canyon. I 
swung thru S Valley Park and then rode back up to Deer Creek Canyon Park, had 4 
Cedar Waxwings flying downhill over the road (weird) and gobbled up all the 
other expected birds but missed singing Savannah and Lincoln's sparrow that I 
had the day before (missed both on the day!). 


The Eastern Phoebe I found on Friday at Valley Rd and Deer Creek Canyon Rd was 
still there singing, but I didn't stop. Western Scrubs Jay's were found, but 
took way too long. I was coming down Cougar Rd and saw a raptor over the 
hogback with the swifts. Fast stop and look: Cooper's Hawk! Only one of the 
day. Crazy spot while descending! 


I wanted/needed to have 65-70 species by the time I got to Chatfield to keep on 
track towards my species total goal and I was at 67! On track, for now. 
Chatfield swim beach was AWESOME, not because I got my only Chipping Sparrow 
but because Tom Behnfeld met me and brought me a couple breakfast sandwiches!! 
Thanks Tom!!! Woods upstream of kingfisher bridge were not as birdy as day 
before and I only added a couple species, but American Redstart was key. 


Now it's 10:45 and hot and windy. I swapped to my offroad bike (I mentioned the 
logistics were crazy). I strapped my tripod to a rack and put my scope in my 
backpack. I cruised the trail west of the gravel pond and all the sparrows I 
had a week ago were gone or hiding. One sparrow was flushed but left unknown. 
Winds were crazy. 


Managed ONE new species over the hour (Swainson's Hawk) and I was starting to 
question my sanity. I saw what I later found out was Hugh Kingery's birding 
group, and I didn't do playback for marsh wren at the small cattail area by the 
Audubon center. 


Losing hope at this point, I kept to plan thanks to a stomach full of Egg 
McMuffin! Waterton Canyon was open (didn't plan on that!), so I decided to roll 
up to where the Black Phoebe was last year. Nada, but I had an spirit lifting 
Olive-sided Flycatcher perched on top of a dead shrub on top of a hill. Perfect 
place for one. Stoked!! 


I cruised up Waterton Rd to a marshy area by soccer fields that I wanted to 
explore. Marsh Wren came attacking immediately to playback and vanished just as 
fast. Got my FIRST E. Collared-Dove too (can't miss those birds). 


I rolled up the Highline canal past Platte Canyon Res and missed most 
everything I had last week. So windy. Scored Golden Eagle, a male Blue Grosbeak 
flew in front of me, and the seemingly ever present Brewer's Blackbirds were on 
Titan Rd by Roxborough Park Rd. 


I went back towards Chatfield and got Horned Lark, House Sparrow (!) and 
stopped for about 5 sec and saw one Burrowing Owl at the SE entrance to 
Chatfield. I don't really enjoy not stopping, watching, and enjoying the birds, 
but I had a crazy mission to continue. Tick and roll. 


Plum Creek dead end road was unproductive other than Vesper Sparrow and a flat 
tire. I got a double flat here last week. What's the deal? On way to the 
marina, a Loggerhead shrike was an awesome surprise! Missed E Kingbird and 
grasshopper sparrow (missed the latter on Friday as well but one was there a 
week ago), but I'll take a shrike. 


The lake was windy, choppy and covered with boaters. Missed most everything I 
had the day before. Eared Grebe and Ring-billed Gull were species 100 and 101, 
but I thought I was at 99 species. 


Back to the car, hot, and getting dejected. Stuck at 99 species, I thought. I 
hadn't checked off all the birds I had seen/heard and didn't know it until that 
night! I got Rock Wren at the dam for apparent #100, and I celebrated like it 
was #100. I continued over the dam and up the Platte river greenway hoping to 
find something new. I may have quit early if I knew I was at 102 already. Good 
milestone for the conditions. 


Couldn't find a wood duck to save my life, but nailed a Belted Kingfisher at 
430pm. How'd I miss it this long? It was also my first kingfisher ever on a big 
day. This is my 5th big day: 2nd bike and I've done 3 fossil fuel driven. 


I was beat and got home at 5pm where the reliable Bushtits put in an appearance 
while I relaxed in the yard. Species 104. I was done. 14 hours, 75 miles of 
riding, and a couple miles of hiking. I later had to go get my car. I couldn't 
physically make it back the 6 miles or so to Chatfield in that wind and 
exhaustion and my wife and daughter wanted me to stay home anyway. 


In the end, 104 is pretty good considering the conditions. I can't complain too 
much but that route could get many more species. I missed a bunch of birds, as 
you do on a big day, but especially a cycling big day since you can't get 
anywhere fast. 


Biggest misses were shorebirds (little habitat), White-crowned sparrow and most 
other sparrows, other owls (need to start earlier and scout more), bald eagle, 
snowy egret, BC night-heron, and some waterfowl that are around. But I got some 
birds on my "lucky" list. All part of the game. 


***And a kicker, on Sunday night, 3 adult Black-crowned Night-Herons flew over 
my house in Littleton about 8pm! Where were they Saturday?! That's birding. 


Can't wait to do this again sometime! If you got this far, thanks for reading!

Cheers,
Scott Somershoe

Subject: Black Phoebe in Hygiene, Boulder Cty.
From: Carl Starace <castarace AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 23 May 2016 18:15:59 -0600
Hi,        About midday today I stopped at the St. Vrain Creek bridge along
Hygiene Rd. in hopes of hearing/seeing a Red eyed Vireo reported there. I
was pleased to see a Snowy Egret, several Common Merganser and 4 Spotted
Sandpiper along the sandy wash on the north side of the road. I spent about
twenty minutes walking both sides of the road but came up empty on the Red
eyed Vireo. Then, on my last pass of the bridges south side I spotted a
perched Black Phoebe quite close to the road. It made just one
more sally/perch before flying off down the creek. Good May Birding

Hi all, 
On May 16 I ran into an Olive-sided Flycatcher and Least Flycatcher in 
downtown Louisville. In a stand of trees near Community Park their were two 
Blackpoll Warblers among others. Yesterday I had a possible Blackburnian 
Warbler at my house, and there were 5 Common Nighthawks over Miner's Field

Subject: White-eyed Vireo - deKoevend Park (Arapahoe)
From: Jared Del Rosso <jared.delrosso AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 23 May 2016 09:36:22 -0700 (PDT)
This morning, the White-eyed Vireo at deKoevend Park in Centennial 
(Arapahoe) was singing from a row of trees between the High Line Canal 
Trail and some playing fields at the park. This is in the same general area 
where the bird has been seen and heard since May 18; however, it's a bit 
deeper into the park then usual. The area is surrounded on three sides (but 
not the trail side) with plastic, construction fencing. If the bird stays 
in these trees, you may have more luck spotting the bird from the playing 
fields than from the trail.

On my first pass by the vireo's area, I missed the bird. It was only on my 
return trip that I heard it. So if you go looking for the bird, give it 
some time to make its presence known.

I didn't see much else at the park, except a pewee-like flycatcher 
flycatching from a chain-link fence, which seemed an unusual way to 
flycatch for a pewee-like flycatcher. 

Yesterday, in my yard across University from deKoevend, I had two new yard 
birds: a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher stopped by while I was doing yard work and a 
Wilson's Warbler, the first I've seen in the area since late-April, spent 
the day. Two Turkey Vultures, the first I've seen from my yard since 
early-April, drifted overhead around 4:30 PM.

Hi Everyone,

 

This evening 5/22 at around 8:15pm, along Left Hand Creek between Hover and
Sunset Streets, I heard a peent sound, looked up, and watched 3 Common
Nighthawks flying SW. They were on their way to somewhere else, but some of
them were doing some acrobatics, I presume in feeding.

Subject: Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chatfield Station, 5/22/16
From: meredith.mcburney AT birdconservancy.org
Date: Sun, 22 May 2016 17:29:39 -0700 (PDT)
Breeding season is here!  We started the day with Yellows (caught 17 total, 
including new, recaps from this year and returns from prior years) and 
ended with Chats (10 total), with some of our other breeding species in 
between, all chasing around after each other.  Only the MacGillivray's 
Warbler and Lincoln's Sparrow were for-sure migrants.  All in all a good 
day, with 33 new captures and 6 returns from prior years:

Western Wood-pewee 1 new, 1 banded 2015
House Wren 3
American Robin 1
Gray Catbird 3
Yellow Warbler 9 new, 3 returns (2 from 2012 and 1 from 2013)
MacGillivray's Warbler 1
Common Yellowthroat 2
Yellow-breasted Chat 7 new, 2 returns (1 from 2011 and 1 from 2014)
Lincoln's Sparrow 2
Red-winged Blackbird 2
American Goldfinch 2

Open daily, weather permitting, through June 2, EXCEPT for May 30. It is 
almost always better to visit early in the morning. We are opening nets at 
6:30, and most days will have birds back at the station by 7:15. There are 
school groups every weekday, arriving about 9:45. We aim to close by noon 
most days, earlier if it is very hot, very cold, or very windy.

Okay, let's see if this works.  Definitely as Jessi Oberbeck described - 
lots of tail-bobbing and fly-catching with the short primaries.

Subject: north central Bldr Cnty: oddly out of synch migrants
From: Linda Andes-Georges <andesgeorges AT comcast.net>
Date: Sun, 22 May 2016 15:51:13 -0600
Hi folks--

As I tried to fly [sic] through 5 transects this week, one day with bookends, I 
noticed a lot of good-to-see returnees but some oddities struck me. I don't 
know if this has been a general thing or just typical of the places I've been 
birdcounting. 


While the tanagers, towhee sp., Linc. sparrows, hummers etc came through our 
yard about on time, the BH Grosbeak, E & W kingbirds & Lazuli were a bit "late" 
(for the average), and the Vesper Sparrows still have not made their usual 
musical big chorus overture to Real Spring. I hear one here & there, no more. 
Savannas are finally tuning up. The Pine Siskins have finally left to move 
higher, and there is only one WC Sparrow left in the brushpile. 


The Eastern Phoebe pairs that we were all reporting have become scarce-- darn. 
Are they still "about to breed" anywhere in the region? 


Spotty peeps are EVERYWHERE halfway beachy & wet. Blue Grosbeak showed up 
today, which is a slightly early date. Red-eyed Vireo in several places nearby, 
and Warbling Vireos are singing timidly. I hope that keeps up a while; their 
repetition drives me nuts later in the season. 


Would anyone who has similar or opposite views reply to me off listserv? I'm 
still --after years of trying to keep records-- attempting to learn what's kind 
of a normal rhythm in what season. Apparently, no season is actually "normal" 
in Colorado. 


Linda

Subject: Scott's Oriole in Monte Vista
From: mvjohnski AT gmail.com
Date: Sun, 22 May 2016 14:08:14 -0700 (PDT)
 I received a report from Mary Thompson of a suspected Scott’s Oriole at 
her feeders in Monte Vista (Rio Grande County). Mary is known to have the 
very best of habitat and feeder varieties and draws an amazing array of 
colorful birds. Wife Lisa and I stopped by today and Mary provided photos 
of the first year male. We still are examining to see if there might not be 
two as the degree of blackness on the throat varies with some of the 
photos. This would be ONLY the second record for the San Luis Valley, since 
David Leatherman found one at John James Canyon during a CFO field trip 
years ago. 
 
Mary is very amenable to folks stopping by on the county road and viewing 
the birds (please stay on the county road unless specifically invited 
closer). To get there, from Hwy 160 east of Monte Vista, Take the 1E road 
south, past the Colorado Parks and Wildlife. She is at the intersection of 
the 1E and the 1S road. 
 
Lisa and I birded Home Lake this morning and saw Eastern Kingbird and many 
Western Tanagers there.

Subject: Huerfano County Update: White-eyed Vireo
From: Polly Neldner <pollywren AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 22 May 2016 12:54:53 -0600
Sorry, forgot to sign the last post!.

This was our first morning having our a cup of coffee under the covered
porch. Amongst all the "regular" calls was one that was vaguely familiar. I
tried numerous times to find a matching call on my phone...but to no avail.
Finally started taking the breakfast dishes back inside. Paul came running
back the the house saying "Polly come quick, grab your camera...there is a
White-eyed Vireo in the yard!" Turns out that was the call we had been
hearing but were unable to figure out. Have posted photos to CFO Facebook
page as well as my own. This is a new Colorado bird for the both of us and
yard bird #164.

Have finally decided to report it, even though it is on the checklist for
Huerfano County...and according to CBRC...there is no need to report it for
Huerfano County...but when I "created a query" for records...there a none
listed for Huerfano. A little confusing...still a great bird for us.

Subject: Red-eyed Vireo - Barr Lake - Adams County
From: Robert Martinez <rocketrob2 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 21 May 2016 21:03:28 -0700 (PDT)
After a long morning of birding Weld County my wife and I decided to visit 
Barr Lake to see the Barn Owls, (we did), on our way back to the visitor 
Center we happened upon a small group of birders looking at a Vireo in the 
trees by the shore, looked with them and found a foraging Red-eyed Vireo 
about 30 feet above the path.  nice look at the stripe on his face and then 
he turned into the sunlight and there it was a definite red -eye.

Late afternoon a singing Bobolink gave several nice looks just west of Walden. 
The bird was on a fence along the dirt road that heads north beside the caboose 
west of town. It was roughly 1/4 mile from the highway.

Subject: Bird Conservancy Banding Report - Chatfield Station, 5/21/16
From: meredith.mcburney AT birdconservancy.org
Date: Sat, 21 May 2016 18:15:32 -0700 (PDT)
Today seemed to mark the beginning of real activity among Yellow Warblers - 
We banded 6 new, caught 3 from prior years, caught another 6 banded earlier 
this season. In several instances, we caught a male and female side by side 
in the net. Our "best bird" of the day was a female American Redstart, a 
species that we believe breeds at Chatfield but we rarely catch.  Here's 
the breakdown on the 22 new and 3 returns:

House Wren 3
Swainson's Thrush 1
Gray Catbird 3
Yellow Warbler 6 new, 3 returns (2 banded 2015, 1 in 2014)
American Redstart 1
Common Yellowthroat 3
Wilson's Warbler 1
Yellow-breasted Chat 2
Spotted Towhee 1
Lincoln's Sparrow 1

Open daily, weather permitting, through June 2, EXCEPT for May 30. It is 
almost always better to visit early in the morning. We are opening nets at 
6:30, and most days will have birds back at the station by 7:15. There are 
school groups every weekday, arriving about 9:45. We aim to close by noon 
most days, earlier if it is very hot, very cold, or very windy.

I heard the vireo around 11:45, while walking my dog at deKoevend. There 
was also an Olive-sided Flycatcher, a Western Wood-Pewee, and a Western 
Kingbird farther northwest on the trail. 

While watching the vireo, it went silent while two boys adventured off 
trail, near the canal. I hung around for fifteen minutes after they left 
and didn't hear the bird. The vireo has hung around the same 20 or so yards 
along the canal for several days now, even as the town has mowed the grass 
between the trail and canal -- and despite the regular activity at the 
park. So hopefully it hasn't been scared off. If you go looking for the 
bird this afternoon or evening, it'd be great to know if it is still 
around.

Cobirders,

The vireo is currently along the creek that flows through the park. The most 
expeditious way to see the bird is to park at the Littleton ice rink. Cross the 
footbridge to the park and take an immediate left along the highlight canal 
trail heading north. Proceed approximately 1K to where there is an orange fence 
along the trail. Make a 90° turn down the hill to the creek and that is where 
the bird was a few minutes ago. It is singing sporadically.

Subject: Alder Flycatcher - Loveland, Larimer Co
From: David Wade <davespeedbump AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 20 May 2016 23:11:15 -0700 (PDT)
Greetings Birders,

I am sheepishly reporting that I saw and heard an Alder Flycatcher at the 
Morrey Wildlife Reserve in Loveland today. Sheepishly because I didn't 
realize I was looking at one when it happened. I spotted a flycatcher with 
a white throat, moderate primary projection and the general shape, size, 
and color of a Trails Flycatcher. Because Willow is the expected one here 
in N Colorado, that's what I thought it was. Then, as I was looking at it 
thru the bino's it belted out a little chippy brri sound. I thought it 
sounded like a miniature Robin. Despite seeing it not give the wit call of 
a Willow, that's what I thought it was and moved on in my merry birding 
way. It wasn't until I saw a Dusky Flycatcher and it reminded me that 
Willow gives a wit call and not the brri that I heard. I quickly returned 
to where I saw it but couldn't relocate it. I checked xenocanto when I got 
home and confirmed the Alder's call there. It was in the understory of a 
group of large cottonwoods directly west of the putting green  of the 
nearby golf course. 

In Fort Collins, I saw a Bobolink at Reservoir Ridge Natural Area today 
too. This marks the third year in a row that I have seen them there.

Subject: Ken Caryl Valley / Littleton, JeffCo 5/20
From: David Suddjian <dsuddjian AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 20 May 2016 21:26:04 -0600
A *Willow Flycatcher* was along Massey Draw in Ken Caryl Valley below my
home in the same spot as the recent Prairie Warbler.

A male *Great-tailed Grackle* was along Ken Caryl Avenue near Estes, a
short way east of Kipling, Littleton.

An adult *Golden Eagle* seemed out of place flying north over suburbia
flying at Mineral x Platte Canyon in Littleton, complete with a train of
mobbing Red-wingeds and crows,

And my favorite for the day, as I was on the porch sipping wine and
watching the moon rise, a *Virginia Rail* began to give "tick-et" calls
from the marshy area of Massey Draw below my home. #156 for the yard list.

CO Birders :

 In addition to Brandon's post on birds at Chico Basin Ranch this morning , I 
observed an immature female Vermilion Flycatcher ( photo taken ) at the south 
end of the alfalfa field on the barbwire fence line for about 5 minutes . Bird 
was not relocated half an hour later . And this location is definitely in 
PUEBLO county .

Subject: Yellow-throated Warbler -- Pueblo County 5/20
From: "'Brandon K. Percival' via Colorado Birds" <cobirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Sat, 21 May 2016 00:30:02 +0000 (UTC)
A singing male Yellow-throated Warbler was at Rose Pond, at Chico Basin Ranch 
(fee area), today.  Many photos were taken by several people.  Maybe it will 
stay for the Pikes Peak Birding Festival trips tomorrow and Sunday.  A male 
Eastern Bluebird was also seen at Rose Pond and a Red-necked Phalarope was seen 
at Headquarters Pond today.  All these locations are in Pueblo County. 

Good birding, Brandon PercivalPueblo West, CO

Also, Cape May Warbler is still on the CBRC Review list.   Lucy's Warbler is 
as well, if you see one away from Yellowjacket Canyon in Montezuma

Then it was removed again, after there were many documented in 2013 and 2014. 
 Golden-winged Warbler IS NOT currently on the CBRC Review List.  The only 
warblers on the State Review List are Prairie, Mourning, Hermit, Canada, 
Cerulean, Swainson's, Connecticut, Louisiana Waterthrush, Red-faced, Painted 
Redstart, and Tropical Parula.   

The people who saw the HERMIT WARBLER on 15 May 2016 at Crow Valley Campground, 
should be documenting that bird for the CBRC! Brandon PercivalPueblo West, CO

Hi all:

Golden-winged Warbler was removed from the state's review list in 2002 due to 
climbing occurrence rate (and partly to ease of ID).  However, it was returned 
to the review list not too many years later when the bottom dropped out on 
occurrences.  Since about four bazillion people saw the recent Golden-winged 
at the Stulp residence, the CBRC would greatly appreciate at least one or two 
bazillion of those observers to document the occurrence to the CBRC.  The 
process is easy and mostly painless 
(http://coloradobirdrecords.org/Reporting/).

             Sorry of the late post, I had to go straight to class after 
visiting the grasslands. I found Crow Valley to be partly closed but not 
closed as I heard on the news (they must have misspoke and meant partly 
closed.) According to some of the birders I spoke to their it was less 
flooded then last week and less birdy then last week. So I found very few 
warblers except a few Yellow Warblers, on Yellow Rump (Audubon’s) and one 
Norther Waterthrush at the flooded group picnic ground. Also present where 
many thrushes, mostly Swanson’s and Robins, but I also found 1 *Veery* and 
on *Hermit* which was feeding at the closed flooded road, and swimming on 
the flooded road was on Blue Wing Teal.

                I also toured the auto tour and found two Burrowing Owls 
just before stop four, about a quarter mile before this stop. Present in 
strong numbers were Meadow Larks, Lark Buntings, and Horned Larks. I found 
one female Chestnut Collard Longspur on a fence between stop 6 and 7 and a 
McCown’s Longspur at stop 10. Here are my checklists from this day,

Brian Johnson,

For those who have not already seen these summaries, I thought I'd post to
call attention to the results of the May 14 Global Big Day here:

http://ebird.org/content/ebird/news/gbd2016/

And as part of that day, the Cornell "Team Sapsuckjer" did a Big Day in

Just saw it fly about 50 yards from the SW corner to a cluster of cattails 
between the two lookouts. It was seen flying in the opposite direction about 
45-60 min ago--just before I arrived.

At Home Lake SWA that is. It was a colorful morning at the lake this 
morning as the insects got moving.  
MANY Western Tanagers catching insects. Also a beautiful Lazuli Bunting 
along the west side willows. 
Other goodies were Plumbeous Vireo, Osprey, Yellow and YR Warblers. The 
Northern Waterthrush is still at Wright-Schriver.

The White-eyed Vireo continues this morning, singing from the "grove" by the 3

Subject: Red-headed Woodpecker at Zapata Ranch
From: mvjohnski AT gmail.com
Date: Thu, 19 May 2016 17:59:06 -0700 (PDT)
Today I observed an adult Red-headed Woodpecker at the Zapata Ranch near 
Mosca, Colorado (Alamosa County). This is the first time I have ever seen 
one here in the 34 years of birding the San Luis Valley. According to the 
local records I keep, this is the 5th record for the San Luis Valley. It 
sure made my day for sure. 

For the record, Zapata Ranch is a private guest ranch and not open to 
general birders. But I think it is important that birders know that this 
bird is in the area, and should be watched for in this locality.

5/19/16 While gathering BB breeding data below the dam this a.m. (11:00)
I saw my FIRST Barn Swallow.

reddish-brown throat

rich deep-blue (not irredescent) forehead and back

deep cinnamon brown entire breast area

Just an awesome awesome beauty.

It was preening on the telephone wires alongside a Tree Swallow.

I'm heading back there with a camera; hope to get an idea where it might be
nesting if at all.

From: Brandon Percival <flammowl17 AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 19 May 2016 11:16:27 -0600
Hi all,

I walked the Arkansas River Trail, from below Pueblo City Park east to the
footbridge (west of Dutch Clark Stadium).  The best birds were located
between Reservoir Drive (where there is a parking lot), and the
footbridge.  These best birds today were:  singing Carolina Wren, singing
Northern Parula, Red-headed Woodpecker, Least and Olive-sided Flycatchers.
Between Pueblo City Park and Reservoir Dr., there were two Swainson's
Thrushes, a Western Tanager, and Wilson's Warbler.  Besides for Yellow
Warblers, the Wilson's and N. Parula were the only ones I found along this
two mile walk.

Subject: Green Heron - Marjorie Perry Nature Preserve (Arapahoe Co.)
From: Jared Del Rosso <jared.delrosso AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 19 May 2016 09:16:36 -0700 (PDT)
This morning, before heading over to deKoevend to take another look at the 
White-eyed Vireo, I stopped for a short walk at Marjorie Perry Nature 
Preserve. During the trip, a Green Heron flew over the east edge of the 
preserve, headed east. 

As others have mentioned, the White-eyed Vireo continues near the 3 mile 
marker for the 10K in deKoevend. It was very vocal, singing and foraging in 
the open, on bare tree branches, as I left the park around 9:00 AM. Also at 
the park were a Lazuli Bunting and a Lesser Goldfinch (my first in the 
area). 

Back home, a MacGillivray's Warbler continues to forage in my yard. This is 
my third day in a row with this unexpected, but welcome visitor.
