Subject: Surf scoter still at Wash Park, Denver County
From: Mary <mkeithler AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 30 Oct 2014 17:40:24 -0600
Hi all,

A small group of birders was treated to some close looks of the surf scoter in 
the south area of Grasmere Lake around 3:30 today, October 30. The scoter was 
near the south shore by the tennis courts. After about ten minutes, the bird 
swam away toward the east shore of the lake. 


Good birding,

Mary Keithler, Arapahoe County, near Cherry Creek State Park

Hey all,

I think these were actually 2 young Mute Swans at Fossil Creek Park. I 
forgot there were two parks/natural areas named Fossil Creek. I hope none 
of you are already looking for them at the reservoir! Nick Komar says that 
they have been there for the last couple days and don't have any signs of 
captive origin.

Thanks!

I just got a call from someone at Fort Collins Parks Department. There are 
apparently 2 swans that have been hanging out at Fossil Creek Reservoir for 
the last couple days. The ID is uncertain, but hopefully someone has a 
chance to go check this out and get a photo.

Happy Birding!

Subject: Golden-crowned Sparrow, Boulder County 10/30
From: David Dowell <dave1wx AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 30 Oct 2014 11:07:04 -0700 (PDT)
Amazingly, the Golden-crowned Sparrow that Scott Severs found at the Teller 
Farms trailhead on Valmont Road in November 2010 has returned to the same 
location for a fifth winter!  We can only imagine where it goes during the 
summer.

Directions to the trailhead are 
at http://coloradocountybirding.org/BySite.aspx?SiteID=373&CountyID=7
This morning, the Golden-crowned Sparrow was moving around a lot with a 
flock of White-crowned Sparrows among weeds that are very tall this year. 
 So, a search of the junipers and tall weeds anywhere within about 100 
yards of the trailhead might be necessary to find the bird.

Subject: upcoming bird walk, Equalizer Lake (Larimer Co.)
From: Scott Baron <baron.scott AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 30 Oct 2014 09:06:51 -0600
Hi,

Join the High Plains Environmental Center for a morning of birding around
Equalizer Lake in Loveland this Sunday Nov. 2.  We will walk approx. 2
miles on sidewalks and on level walking paths to observe gulls, waterfowl,
sparrows and other birds.  The extensive mudflat at the south end of the
reservoir usually attracts many birds.  The water bodies themselves should
hold many waterbirds as well.

Meet at the parking lot at HPEC, which is located at 1854 Piney River Drive
in the Centerra neighborhood in Loveland.  We will walk to the lake at
8am.  This area is easily reached from Rte. 34 exit of I-25.  The walk
should end around 10:30.

Come out and join us for fall migration.

Scott Baron
Loveland, Colo.

Hi, everyone.

Yesterday morning and this morning our feeders have been inundated with doves. 
Right now there are 2 Mourning Doves, 10 Eurasian Collared Doves, and 12 
White-winged Doves. 


We have had 2, 3, and even 4 White-winged Doves year-round for the last 3 
years, but nothing like this. On one feeder where we have hulled sunflower 
seeds, they are actually stacked on top of one another. Rather comical to see. 


Good birding, all!

Highlights at Hasty/Lake Hasty/John Martin Res yesterday, 10/29:

Sandhill Cranes (we estimated 11,000!! flew over, with this probably being a 
woefully low count of what was within sight in all directions, one of the 
events that makes birding the eastern plains of Colorado a joy at this time of 
year) 


Snow Goose (18, FOS)
Dunlin (2, maybe 3, reported earlier by Duane Nelson, about mid-way along the 
north shore, access via network of roads from RdJJ) 

Rock Wren (2, in rocks along the north side of res)
Canyon Wren (2, ditto)
Osprey (1, southeast of campground along outlet)
Eastern Phoebe (1, just south of the dam on the road and rocks on the Lake 
Hasty side) 

Red-breasted Merganser (at least 40, FOS)
Long-billed Dowitcher (75+, along the north shore)
Stilt Sandpiper (1, along the north shore)
5 species of grebes, but no Red-necked, which Duane had reported recently
American Avocet (still at least 100), Least Sandpiper (5), Baird's Sandpiper 
(1), several of both yellowlegs 

Common Loon (1)
NO Red-throated Loon, which Duane had reported recently 

Tens of thousands of waterfowl to sort thru, water level low (lots of fish 
groping for air), probably things we missed

This morning in a flock of pink-sided juncos I had a distinct white-winged 
junco in the flock. 

The birds were near the restrooms / playground on the S. side of the park 
near the parking lot.

Subject: Uncommon birds 10/29

Today, I started out the morning in Coal Creek Canyon and got great views of 
the female Magnificent Hummingbird. Thanks to Adam Jack for allowing everyone 
to view this rare Colorado hummingbird. I then headed to Washington Park and 
saw the accommodating immature Surf Scoter(Thanks to Joe Roller for reporting 
this bird). My luck ran out as I headed to Red Rocks hoping that the 
Golden-crowned Sparrow would return for the fifth straight year. No luck! I 
have been trying to take millet up 2-3 times a week but the seed is long gone 
every time I return. If anyone heads to Red Rocks please throw some seed down. 
This area seems to always attract some good birds with consistent food behind 
the trading post. A few photos of today's birds can be seen in the gallery 
below:

Subject: 11/13 Front Range trip- everyone is welcome!
From: Johanna Beam <knitter5d AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 16:20:20 -0700 (PDT)
Hey all,
On November 13th, I'm planning on birding some lakes and reservoirs along 
the front range, i.e., Longmont and Boulder area. Anyone and everyone is 
welcome to join in, the more the merrier. I'm planning on starting at 
McIntosh Reservoir (NW Longmont at the Flanders park entrance) early in the 
morning, around 7am, and working my way around. You're more than welcome to 
jump in for part or all of the day. I'd like to get to know more birders in 
my area, so please please come if you can make it. I'm still working out 
the details, but I wanted to get the word out first to see if anyone is 
interested. You're welcome to email me at knitter5d AT gmail.com or reply here.
Thanks!

Subject: Another Day In The Park 10/28
From: David Suddjian <dsuddjian AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 14:43:45 -0600
Park County, that is…and South Park mostly. Yesterday (10/28) I visited all
the birding bodies of water, some high forest, and some lower Ponderosa
forest. 17 degrees at sunrise was the low, but the day warmed to the low
50s, and it was unexpectedly calm much of the day. Highlights included
below are White-winged and Surf Scoters, Red Phalarope, Pacific Loon, 14
(!) Common Loons, and McCown's Longspur.


Near sunrise, a flock of 110 *American Crows* feeding at a carcass near
Jefferson provided a high count for Park County. A little later, a male *Am.
Three-toed Woodpecker* made himself apparent at Hoosier Pass along Highway
9. Some stops along County Road (CR) 8 out of Alma provided 21 *Red
Crossbills* (Type 5), one *Pine Grosbeak*, and one* Nor. Goshawk*.


Buffalo Creek Reservoir had one each of female *White-winged Scoter* and
female *Surf Scoter*, foraging amid a flock of Bufflehead, one *Common Loon*,
one male *Greater Scaup* and four *Hooded Mergs*. This reservoir is near
the start of Pike NF Road 433, off Highway 285 a few miles north of the
junction with Highway 24.


All three of the big reservoirs had large numbers of water birds, perhaps
inflated by movement associated with the cold front the day before. I list
composite counts of some of the regular species below after the highlights
of each site individually.


Highlights at Antero Reservoir were 1* Pacific Loon*, 3 *Common
Loons*, 9 *Long-billed
Dowitchers* (SBDO eliminated by default, really, as they were a long ways
off), 1 *Clark’s Grebe*, 8 *Bonaparte’s Gulls* and 2 *Franklin’s Gulls*.
Still 8 *American Avocets *present. 2 or 3 *Prairie Falcons*


Spinney Mountain Reservoir had 3 *Common Loons* (one calling often), 1
*Peregrine
Falcon*, and 1 *Bald Eagle*.


Eleven Mile Reservoir had a *Red Phalarope*, 7 *Common Loons*, 14 *Greater
Scaup*, 1 *Franklin’s Gull*, and 2 *Bald Eagles*. A *McCown’s Longspur *was
with numerous Horned Larks along CR 59 near the central section of the
reservoir. There will still three young Western Grebes begging from their
parents at this reservoir.


Composite totals for some waterbirds from these three reservoirs: Gadwall
(1845), American Wigeon (1220), Mallard (142), Nor. Shoveler (69), Nor.
Pintail (150), Green-winged Teal (98), Canvasback (143), Redhead (1115),
Ring-necked Duck (40), Lesser Scaup (790), Bufflehead (2065), Common
Merganser (18), Ruddy Duck (1075), Eared Grebe (290), Western Grebe (325),
American Coot (11,700).


I made 10 stops in Ponderosa pine forest (with spruce in some areas) along
roads south and southeast of Eleven Mile Res., including CR 100, 98, 61 and
Forest Road 234. Areas rich in cone crops had large numbers of the
interesting fringillids. *Red Crossbills* were locally abundant; I noted
over 550 on my 10 stops. Ninety percent were Type 2, but there were also
Type 5, and some spots had both together. *Evening Grosbeaks *were
delightfully common; I detected about 150. Most of these were along Pine NF
Road 234 off CR 98 at the intersection with CR 100. Indeed, stops along
Road 234 in for about a mile off CR 98 were really fun. At one spot my
pygmy-owl imitation and attracted over 50 interested crossbills clustering
in the trees around me, along with a bluster of other species. And then I
attracted a real *Northern Pygmy-Owl* and all the littler birds went
ballistic! I also saw a tardy *Lewis’s Woodpecker* along Road 234, flying
south.



Lake George had the usual suspects, with a tardy* Double-crested Cormorant*
and *Virginia Rail* being the only birds of note, plus two *Hooded Mergs*.
Tarryall Reservoir was a disappointment with no waterbirds at all.


After dark, in the cold, I detected a *Boreal Owl *along Weston Pass Road.
Some *Nor. Saw-whet Owls* were pretty vocal in areas of Ponderosa or mixed
forest near Bailey.

Subject: Common Loons at Pueblo Res. 10/29
From: Brandon <flammowl17 AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 11:09:51 -0700

Since I haven't birded Pueblo Reservoir for a while, and I heard from Margie 
Joy that there were Common Loons around Pueblo Reservoir yesterday, I decided 
to go out there this morning and check things out. I didn't go over to the 
South Shore Marina, where there appears to be a good number of gulls. 


There were at least 11 Common Loons (8 in middle/eastern part of the Reservoir, 
and 3 more in the western part of the Reservoir). Other highlights for me, were 
two Bonaparte's Gulls and a female Red-breasted Merganser. Five species of 
grebes, and a some ducks were also present on the lake.

Subject: American Dipper, Cherry Creek Trail, downtown Denver
From: Matthew Baker <mattbaker AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:14:48 -0700 (PDT)
All,

My first of the year american dipper was calling and very active under the 
pedestrian bridge over the Platte River at REI. 

If you park at REI or the nearby parking lot south of the Speer Bridge, you 
can walk across the pedestrian bridge over the rapids and listen for the 
bird... it won't take long to see it hopping along or flying to a new perch.

Subject: Common Loon, Fort Collins (Larimer County)
From: Brad Biggerstaff <eyepatchtattoo AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:30:20 -0600
There was a Common Loon at Claymore Lake in northwest Fort Collins this
morning while I was there between 8:00 and 8:30.  I saw the bird flying
over the lake yesterday, as well, but it headed off to the east.  This
morning the bird was on the water in the middle of the lake and diving
regularly.

Claymore Lake is a private lake, but good views (especially with a scope)
are available from the parking lot for Reservoir Ridge Open Space.  This is
the "old" entrance to the Open Space, this parking lot being the one at the
end of Michaud Lane, off of Overland Trail.

Subject: Field trip announcement: Great Boulder Caper, Fri., Nov. 28
From: Ted Floyd <tedfloyd57 AT hotmail.com>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 07:28:30 -0700 (PDT)
Hello, Birders.

Join the Boulder Bird Club for the 4th annual *Great Boulder Caper, Black 
Friday, Nov. 28, 2014.* The capering starts at 7:30 a.m. at Cottonwood 
Marsh, off 75th St., in eastern Boulder County. We'll (mostly) bird all 
day, (constantly) eat leftovers, and (maybe) even go shopping. Birders of 
all interest levels are welcome; non-birding companions and general 
curiosity-seekers are especially welcome. You don't have to be with us all 
day; like Huckleberry Finn, you may come and go as you please. Some amount 
of jury-rigged carpooling is inevitable. 

As to the birding, we can expect good numbers and diversity of ducks; 
grebes and maybe a loon or two; lots of gulls; and diverse land birds. 
We'll be out at an excellent time of year for Swamp Sparrows and Marsh 
Wrens. With so many eyes and ears--and tryptophan-fueled 
imaginations--we're likely to find a rarity or two. Here's a recap of last 
year's Caper:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/cobirds/JGOsgW6XnVg

No RSVP required, but feel free to contact me by email (tedfloyd57 "at" 
HoTMaiL "dot" com) with any questions.

I hope to see many of you on Black Friday!

Ted Floyd

Lafayette, Boulder County, Colorado

Subject: Female Magnificent Hummingbird / Boulder County
From: Adam Jack <adam.jack AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 07:21:31 -0600
Hey Folks,

The magnificent hummingbird was cooperative again yesterday, and has shown
this morning.

Further, from the deck there was one dark morph broad-winged hawk (not
ID'ed by me, but obviously a different species to me than normal), various
Bald Eagle, and one possible Golden eagle. A Northern harrier, some
Cooper's Hawk's and some Red-tailed Hawks. Most, but these last two, were
likely migrating through.

Common birds are Hairy/Downey Woodpeckers, Mountain/Black-capped
Chickadees, Dark-eyed Juncos, White-brested and Pigmy Nuthatches, Townsend
Solitaire, Clark's Nutcracker, Stellar's Jay and various others.

If you visit, please keep a little back from the bird. She is skittish and
feel pressure if we get close to the feeders or move about to rapidly.

regards

Adam
Coal Creek Canyon, Colorado

Subject: White-throated Sparrow & Merlin - GJWA - Mesa County
From: Mike Henwood <mhawkhen AT gmail.com>

Had a good morning of birding at the Grand Junction Wildlife Area (GJWA),
which is near the confluence of the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers in Grand
Junction.

Lots of sparrows including an adult White-striped White-throated Sparrow, 6
Lincoln's Sparrows, about 20 Chipping Sparrows(down in numbers from several
days ago), plus numerous Gambel's White-crowned Sparrows, Song Sparrows,
and Dark-eyed Juncos (mostly Pink-sided & Oregon).  Spotted Towhees (8)
made the 7th sparrow species.

Also had a Merlin hunting from a perch and on the wing.  Observed a young
Cooper's Hawk carrying a junco in his talons.

Also observed an unusual Red-tailed Hawk which I think is a dark morph
Western Red-tailed.  Saw the bird circling and the body was uniform black
with a light rufous red tail.
Looked like a Harlan's Hawk with a red tail, so I'm not positive of the ID.

Subject: 'Red' Fox Sparrow, Ft. Collins (Larimer Co.); Oct. 28
From: Scott Baron <baron.scott AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2014 16:06:42 -0600
Hi,

I birded parts of the CSU campus today.  On the west side of the arboretum,
I got a good but brief look at a 'Red' Fox Sparrow on the ground near the
fence line.  It was maybe a couple hundred feet north of Lake St.  I am
familiar with this subspecies from migration and winter in the Mid-Atlantic
and Northeast.  This is the time of year that southbound migrants show up
there at this latitude.  Reddish brown and gray, including red-brown
streaks below.   I had to leave for a meeting soon afterward but I may have
time to search for it again tomorrow.  It was presumably part of the junco
flock that was there.

The arboretum is located in between Lake and Pitkin streets on the
southwest part campus.

Hi all

Randy Lenrtz and I saw a Red-necked Grebe at Cherry Creek Res from the east 
side, south of the swim beach, from the picnic tables all in a row, at 11:00 
this morning. The grebe was swimming amongst Western Grebes,first noticed by 
dingy gray neck, whitish cheeks and long-ish bill (not as long as Western 
Grebe) and its bill slightly turned downward from side profile.

CCBirders,

I asked Sheri Williamson (hummer expert in AZ) to look at the photos and she 
says it is a female mag. Long bill, small white tail tips. 


She also suggests that Adam use a 3:1 sugar mixture to encourage the bird to 
move south. According to Sheri, sometimes this works, although sometimes not.

The hummingbird just arrived for her early morning feed, surviving a night
(not as cold as the prior) getting down to 30 degrees.

I may not be at home today, but visitors are welcome to come up on the
deck. The bird will feed with humans sitting (photographing) on the deck,
but please don't go too much closer to the feeders (as she is skittish and
demonstrably feels pressure.)

If she behaves like yesterday shell be loud (quite audible from the deck to
most ears) in the trees around the deck when not at the feeders. She was
visiting both outside feeders about every 20 minutes.

Contact me if you'd like directions, but I may be off email at times today.

Hello,
Near Fort Collins, along the Poudre Trail between Taft Hill Road and 
Overland Trail, one of the gravel ponds is in the process of being drained 
and has revealed quite a bit of the lake bed. Consequently, it is 
attracting  some water birds. Today there were about 200 gulls highlighted 
by 1 Herring, 2 Franklin's, and 2 Bonaparte's Gulls. Several geese, 
Mallards, teal and even Crows were taking advantage of the freshly exposed 
resource. Two late or nearly late Greater Yellowlegs were foraging also. 
I'm not sure how long it will last but this spot might be good for late 
shorebirds or gulls in the week or two to come. It's located on the North 
side of the trail about midway (.5 mile) from Taft or Overland, 
unfortunately, the view is through a chain-link fence.

Greetings All


I've uploaded just under 20 photos from my weekend in Washington. My friend 
accurately predicted that a day of heavy rain and hard east winds followed by a 
night of 60+ mph winds from west would produce rarities on the outer coast. 
And, perched in the northwestern corner of the state, we located a Eurasian 
Hobby (2nd state and 3rd lower 48 record), a Vega Herring Gull (4th state 
record), an Orchard Oriole (ho hum in CO, but 8th WA record), 3 Tropical 
Kingbirds (the year's average at one location), a western WA Grasshopper 
Sparrow (about 10th record), 3 Clay-colored Sparrows (probably ties or exceeds 
prior record for w. Washington), and possibly... a Sky Lark. My companions 
deserve the credit for finding and identifying these smacking rarities: Charlie 
Wright, Ryan Merrill, Ryan Shaw, and Brad Waggoner. The first three are in 
their 20s and low 30s, and you'll undoubtedly hear their names much on the 
national stage. Excellent birders and awesome people (Brad is also an excellent 
bird and awesome person, just an old fart like me). 



To see the photos, go to https://www.flickr.com/photos/36088296 AT N08/


My cruddy photo of the Eurasian Hobby has a link to Ryan M's better flight 
shots

I checked Chatfield Reservoir from a handful of vantage points. No loon or
scoters in evidence, but waterfowl numbers and variety had increased a good
bit from my visit one week ago. There were now *Redhead*, *Canvasback*, *Lesser
Scaup* and others, and numerous flocks of *Northern Pintails* were
migrating south. Two *Franklin's Gulls* were off the original Heronry
Overlook.

A trek through the uplands south of Kingfisher Bridge on the Douglas Co
side of the South Platte had 1 *Harris's Sparrow*, a straggling *Lincoln's
Sparrow*, and 3 *Am. Tree Sparrows* (my 1st this season). Three more Am.
Tree Sparrows were at Trailmark Lake (JeffCo), along with a decent
cross-section of waterfowl.

A tardy *Barn Swallow* was an early morning surprise at Mann Reservoir in
South Valley Park (JeffCo). It was hunting low over the water, but I can't
imagine there was much for it to catch. A pair of *Prairie Falcons* perched
atop the big rock there, looking on.

A HY *White-throated Sparrow* joined the mixed juncos in my Ken Caryl
Valley yard late today.

And the day closed very nicely with a flock of about 170 *Sandhill Cranes*
migrating high over my home area, heading from the mountains to the
southeast. It was a thrill to hear their uvular calls drifting down from on
high.

around the lake.

I was shocked to flush a gray-crowned rosy-finch from the side of the trail 
on the far SW side of the lake. The bird sat in a nearby low tree for a few 
minutes, then flew back to the grass between the paved trail and the 
'single-track' trail (ie. dirt trail for bikes). I watched for 10 minutes 
from within 25' while the bird fed.

The bird was a 1st winter female according to Sibley. Beautiful pink 
feathers shined in the sun... that, the fall colours, the grey skies... a 
great sight!

eBird says that's a first for Denver CO, so that's got to be a great bird 
for Sloan's! (#127)

Hey, everyone. First, I love lurking on this list. Second, I am a writer and
have published five Birdwatcher's Mystery novels that are being rereleased
as ebooks on Friday, October 31st. The new publisher, Astor+Blue Editions,
has asked me to write a sixth book in the series for ebook and print release
in September of 2015. I told him I would, and he wrote back and said, "You
haven't done owls." I agreed I hadn't, and he wrote back and said "We can
call it A PARLIAMENT OF OWLS. Now, the question. Actually, first a caveat-I
am a good writer and I love to go birding, but I'm by no means an expert
birder. So, I did a little research and have been trying to come up with a
plot and wonder-if you were going to choose an owl, which would you choose?
Are there any owls impacted by the fracking that's going on in Colorado? Are
any other owls impacted by something that has ties to litigated or
politically controversial things happening in Colorado. If anyone is willing
to share, please send me a private email (we don't need to eat up space on
the list). I can be contacted at chris AT christinegoff.com. Thanks, Chris

Just an update. The bird is coming back semi-regularly this morning
(despite, or perhaps because of, the freezing cold winds.) If anybody
wishes to come take a look they are more than welcome. I'd rather not post

CoBirders,
This bird showed up this cold morning. I've had feeders out (for stragglers) 
but now I've cleaned/refreshed them. This bird is large (at least 50% if not 
more than the normal broad-tailed hummingbirds). It is skittish, likely female, 
is green with light grey chest, has white behind the eye, a long/large slightly 
curved down bill, and (especially when stretched up) a very long neck. I am 
still attempting to get photos, but I'd love any input:

This morning a late *Wilson's Warbler* was at Lee Gulch downstream of
Prince Street, Littleton. 2 *Evening Grosbeaks* in some pines near the
office of St. Mary Church were the first I've had there.

Back home in Ken Caryl Valley (JeffCo) I'm enjoying sorting through 5 forms
of Dark-eyed Juncos at my feeding stations these last several days.
Interestingly (to me), the form that I've so far seen most rarely in my
yard (Gray-headed)  is the one that nests within a mile of my home. Maybe
they'll be more regular this winter as my feeding station becomes better
known among the birds.

Date: Sun, 26 Oct 2014 18:38:33 -0600
Gwen Moore and I headed out in late morning for a visit to Jackson Reservoir 
and State Park (Morgan). We matched Hugh Kingery's FOS American Tree Sparrow 
with one at Andrick SWA just SW of Jackson. In the park we had not too much 
around the visitor center, but the next bit of thicket (by the red barn where 
guns were blazing) was really hopping. Best here was a flock of Cedar Waxwings 
mixed with lots of robins, yellow-rumps, juncos, white-crowned and song 
sparrows. Also present were two Mountain Chickadees, a Spotted Towhee and a 
half dozen Wild Turkeys. Going all the way to the end of the road, we had a 
6-foot bull snake and a FOS Northern Shrike. 


The reservoir itself seems to have lots of Ruddy Ducks and Western Grebes, the 
usual gulls and a few other ducks, but when we got all the way to the north end 
SWA parking lot, we had one Greater Yellowlegs plus a definitive Pacific Loon 
way out on the water. Needless to say that when we circled back to the park HQ, 
the loon was (and had always been) more than halfway across the reservoir 
toward the north side. 


We set off for home via Lower Latham and Stewart's Pond. The former had both 
yellowlegs and a single American Avocet, the latter was shore to shore duck 
with about 100 Canvasback in the 2,000 plus birds.

Bill Eden will be the featured speaker at the Monday, October 27 DFO
meeting. Bill will transport you to Borneo, the third-largest island in the
world and
home of 633 resident birds (50 endemics). It is also one of the few
remaining
natural habitats for the endangered Bornean Orangutan. Bill traveled to
Borneo in 2013.
Bill’s photos will feature a sample of the bird species found in the state
of
Sabah including the Rhinoceros Hornbill (one of eight hornbill species found
there), the Black and Red Broadbill, and Stork-billed Kingfisher, as well as
the massive caverns housing Edible-nest Swiftlets. Everything seems exotic
in
Borneo including the world’s largest flower, the Rafflesia, called the
“corpse”
flower.
Bill has presented his birding trip photos of Australia and Brazil to DFO in
the past.
The DFO meeting is in the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Ricketson
Auditorium. Enter through the west door by 7:30 p.m. We must lock
the door a little after that time.

This afternoon during lunch we watched our FOS American Tree Sparrow. I first 
saw, perched in a scrub oak, a breast with a prominent spot; then the bird came 
down to feed on the ground and showed off prime plumage -- reddish cap, eye 
stripe that stopped (more or less) at the eye, spiffy back feathers. 



I checked our records1999-2013; they show the average date for our first one as 
Oct. 29; first dates range from Oct. 12 to Nov. 6.

Subject: Ponderosa Pine crop - Douglas
From: "'Hugh Kingery' via Colorado Birds" <cobirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Sun, 26 Oct 2014 17:10:45 -0400
 Out here in Douglas County, we have a discussion going about ponderosa pine 
cone crop - or the lack thereof. In Castlewood Canyon State Park, the west side 
has only a handful of trees with a handful of cones; Karen Metz says, "portions 
of the East Side of the park do have pine cones - and Red-breasted Nuthatches. 
I also heard Red Crossbills there this past summer." 


 Today we walked the park's East Canyon trail. It traverses habitat similar to 
the paved trails on the east side, but because you clamber over rock & rough 
places, it seems wilder and more inviting. Before the trail reached the highway 
we saw at least 30 juncos, smaller numbers of Pygmy & White-breasted 
nuthatches, Mountain Chickadees, White-crowned Sparrows, & heard a few 
Townsend's solitaires & flickers. The juncos congregated at some wet seeps to 
drink and especially to bathe. We walked maybe a mile on the east side after 
the trail goes under the highway bridge, and when we came back we saw no birds 
at all. Zero. [The park will close the trail Nov. 3 for about six months ("to 
protect nesting raptors").] 

 
 Deerfield, a subdivision about 3 miles east of The Franktown traffic light, 
seems to have lots of cones. This summer Karen saw 2-3 pairs of Red Crossbills 
that fostered two broods -- she saw 7 fledglings one morning in early October. 
She also has flocks of Pine Siskins, a few Cassin's finches, and some 
Red-breasted Nuthatches. 


 We have missed cone crops for the last 3 or 4 years on the Black Forest 
Christmas Bird Count (El Paso/Douglas) and seen few on our spring & fall trips 
to Genesee Mtn. Park (Jeffco). 

 
 The cone crop generated a local discussion, and Jeff Thompson, Resource 
Stewardship Program Coordinator for the state Parks & Wildlife, shared this 
from 

http://www.na.fs.fed.us/pubs/silvics_manual/Volume_1/pinus/ponderosa.htm

 "Seed Production and Dissemination- No regular periodicity has been observed 
in the seed production of ponderosa pine over its entire range. In California, 
west of the Sierra Nevada, medium seed crops are borne on an average of every 2 
to 3 years. The average interval between heavy cone crops is 8 years. Good cone 
crops are produced every 3 years in the Black Hills (7), every 3 to 4 years in 
the Southwest (55), and every 4 to 5 years in the Pacific Northwest (3). 
Observations over 23 years in Montana show ponderosa pine to be a poor seeder 
west, and a fair seeder east, of the Continental Divide, with only one good 
crop. The species bears cones as early as 7 years and continues to produce good 
seeds to at least 350 years. Seeds from trees aged 60 to 160, however, are more 
viable than those of younger or older trees. In California, trees more than 64 
cm (25 in) in d.b.h. were the best producers. In central Idaho, mature and 
overmature trees growing at an elevation of 1680 m (5,500 ft) produced lower 
quality seeds than similar trees at 1220 m (4,000 ft), and open grown trees 
produced heavier crops of larger cones than stand grown trees (13)."

Birding was generally slow in the Fort Collins-Loveland-Windsor area yesterday. 
Highlights included: 

Red-breasted Mergansers near Windsor (FOS)
Lesser Black-backed Gull near Severance (gull flock at Weld CR78 & CR23)
Mute Swan pair at Portner Res in Fossil Creek Park in south Fort Collins

The Swans are young adults that show no signs of captive origin. If any readers 
have info about their origin, please advise. 


Another interesting bird in the pond with the swans was a small female 
Canvasback among Redheads. It's small size raise the possibility of hybrid with 
Redhead. 


Photos of the swans and canvasback are at www.pbase.com/quetzal/ebird. Opinions

Subject: Yuma county --- Golden-crowned Sparrow, 10/25/14
From: "'Mark Peterson' via Colorado Birds" <cobirds AT googlegroups.com>
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 20:54:48 -0700
COBirders,

Today, Lisa Edwards and I had planned to do a fair bit of birding in multiple 
eastern Colorado areas but ended up only making it to the Bonny and Hale areas 
of Yuma county. We started at Foster's Grove where the highlights were a GRAY 
CATBIRD, three WHITE-THROATED SPARROWs and a flyover CASSIN'S FINCH. 


Next stop was Wagon Wheel campground which had birds but mostly expected 
things, not totally unexpected yet nice was a GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET and a 
probable hybrid Eastern X Spotted Towhee. 


Onto "Pipit Hill" where we recorded all of SEVEN individual birds which 
included two HORNED LARKs, one CHESTNUT-COLLARED LONGSPUR and at least four 
SPRAGUE'S PIPITs. To get to Pipit Hill take the road just on the north side of 
the Republican river off of LL.5 and head west. The road eventually bends back 
to the south. You do not want to go to the south but you can park near where it 
turns to the south and then walk up hill to the north. There is a windmill in 
this area. Really anywhere on that hillside is reasonable. 


Back down the road to the Hale area near the intersection of CR4 and LL.5 we 
had a LINCOLN'S SPARROW and a "RED" FOX SPARROW (mixed in with Junco's) for our 
highlights. 


Then off to Hale Ponds where shortly after getting out of the car we found a 
juvenile GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW (which completed the Zonotrichia slam for us, 
kind of) that was associating with a small flock of WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWs. 
They disappeared on us quickly so we decided to wander off into Kansas to poke 
around bit and give them time to maybe return. When we returned we worked the 
area for quite a while going through a lot of White-crowns but never re-found 
the Golden-crowned. I suspect it is still there but there is a lot of area to 
cover and we finally decided to give up. Ah, a mentioned that we kind of 
completed the Zonotrichia slam above. We did but across state lines. Our only 
HARRIS'S SPARROW of the day was in Kansas and the Golden-crowned was only about 
300 yards from being in Kansas. 


Beautiful weather out there and great company. Ah, and a word of caution if you 
decide to head out there, we saw roughly 20 cars that were out there for 
hunting, so you might consider wearing your blaze orange if you have any.

Today (10/25) a *Steller's Jay* was away from the mountains at Lee Gulch
near Prince Street in Littleton, with a flock of 27 *Bushtits* nearby at
St. Mary Church (ARA).

A tardy adult *Swainson's Hawk* was at Sledding Hill Park at Kipling x Ken
Caryl (JEF). It was perched in the exact tree favored by a breeding pair
from this past season, but I haven't seen any others in that area for
several weeks.

Yesterday 2 *Red Crossbills* (Type 2) passed over my home at Ken Caryl
Valley (JEF).

Hello, Birders.

With Brian Small, I poked around Walden Ponds, Boulder County, early this 
sunny Saturday morning, Oct. 25. Not a whole lot there, but it was nice to 
find 6 Wood Ducks, a late Swainson's Hawk, a Greater Yellowlegs and a 
Wilson's Snipe, 2 or 3 Marsh Wrens, Audubon's and Myrtle warblers, and at 
least 8 American Tree Sparrows. Here's audio of the Marsh Wrens:

song-- http://www.xeno-canto.org/199954
call-- http://www.xeno-canto.org/199955

Over at Greenlee Preserve, I found my first-ever Evening Grosbeak at the 
site, a bird flying over.

Hi Everyone-

 

Marcia Marvin and I did a loop around some of the lakes of Longmont ,
including Union Reservoir, Terry Lake, and McIntosh Lake, this afternoon
10/25. Best birds were 4 Bonaparte's Gulls at Terry Lake (good viewpoint for
afternoon light is off 95th  just south of Woodland Rd). There were lots of
Western Grebes everywhere with a few Clark's mixed in, and Redhead numbers
are ramping up from a week ago.

Birders,
Today at Barr Lake where the water is WAY down as they are working on the
dam:
Canada Goose
Cackling Goose
White Pelican
Killdeer
Pectoral Sandpiper
Least Sandpiper
LB Dowitcher
Lesser Yellowlegs
Prairie Falcon
Dark Morph Rough-legged Hawk - likely the same one back for a 4th or 5th
year
Coot
American Pipit
Horned Lark
Gadwall
Mallard
Pintail
Shoveler
Bufflehead
Goldeneye
GW Teal
Ruddy
Western Grebe
Eared Grebe
DC Corm
Gr Blue Heron
Herring, Ring-billed and Calif Gulls

By the looks of the water level, I doubt there will be many geese and
probably very few eagles this winter.  At this level, I wouldn't be
surprised if the whole lake (what's left of it) freezes.

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

I usually have only seen about 25 cormorants come to roost on the ponds where I 
live. I was stunned last night to realize that I have more than 90 roosting in 
different trees around the ponds. 


Today, at the height of the eclipse, the cormorants came swooping in by the 
dozens into the trees. This was earlier then when they normally come in, of 
course, but it also was more dramatic. They usually just flying in over several 
hours in the evening.

Subject: Last Chance,Washington county, Swamp sp.
From: Tina Jones <tjcalliope AT hotmail.com>

Hi all,
I drove out to Last Chance this afternoon to see if anything might be there. 
This location is at the intersection of Highway 71 and highway 36. It was 
pretty ,pretty slow. Nothing but 5, White-crowned Sparrows [immature] , the 
usual Eurasian Collared- Doves, and 5, American Robin feeding on Russian Olive 
berries. Four, Dark-eyed Juncos [Oregon] were feeding on the seeds of a non 
native plant, Polygonum aviculare [Knotweed]. This is a late blooming weed 
which the Juncos and White-crowned Sparrows were picking at, and it is a good 
plant to check to see who is feeding on it. I have seen Cassin's Finch feeding 
on this same plant, a bit higher up in elevation. 

 
A small leafless shrub which was about 2 feet high, and which I could not ID, 
was moving a bit. Climbing to the top of this shrub, was a very late House 
Wren. Since the weather has been so nice there are lot's of insects still, so 
this Wren should be able to eat and eat. Lot's of Western Meadowlarks were 
flying around Last Chance. 

 
The pond area was very, very, slow after my first look at it. I decided to 
check it one hour latter, after my first visit. Thinking I would see nothing, I 
finally did see a bird hopping around on the muddy area. It was a first winter 
Swamp Sparrow. Suddenly out of the Rushes appeared a second, different Swamp 
Sparrow who decided he would lunge at the first Swamp Sparrow. Watching this 
behavior made my afternoon . 

 
About a week and a half ago, I heard Sandhill Cranes flying over Last Chance.
 
Happy Birding!

other things, I had my first exposure to African Collared-Dove. As Nathan 
mentions, they are indeed vocally distinct from Eurasian Collared-Dove (and at 
least with the population I observed, subtly but detectably distinct visually).

the SW quarter of the island. I had my recording equipment with me on my 
travels, but all the AFCDs I encountered were in town (not surprisingly) in 
areas strewn with power lines which at the time were an unsolvable problem for 
my recording efforts due to heavy electromagnetic interference. I have since 
come up with makeshift solutions that would have allowed me to make a decent 
recording even next to a power line, but oh well, I'm not there anymore.

> At any rate, the other main point I wanted to make here was that before and 
during my travels, I frequently used eBird to get info on where to go on the 
island for certain specialties, native or otherwise. According to eBird 
submissions made by visiting birders over the previous year or so, the vast 
majority of the collared-doves observed in that area were Eurasian, but I never 
once came across a collared-dove that I thought was a Eurasian. At least 
vocally, I thought *all* of them, and there were quite a few in town, were 
African. So I contend that there is widespread lack of awareness of the 
difference and in fact, even the existence, of African Collared-Dove. And it 
may well be that it's not just in Puerto Rico that birders are missing the 
identification of this separate and distinct taxon, but perhaps even here in 
North America, and as Ted diligently noted, perhaps even in our own Front Range 
backyards!

Subject: African collared dove- video
From: "'Deborah Carstensen' via Colorado Birds" <cobirds AT googlegroups.com>

After reading the posts about the doves, I remembered this wonderful video that 
really makes me smile. I think that this is a African collared dove if I match 
it with the description in the previous emails. These two in the video 
obviously grew up together.

Subject: African Collared-Doves, ID tutorial
From: Ted Floyd <tedfloyd57 AT hotmail.com>
Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2014 09:38:17 -0700 (PDT)
Hello, Birders.

Here are some tips on recognizing African Collared-Doves in Colorado.

First, here is a photo of an African Collared-Dove from Lafayette, Boulder 
County, this morning, Thurs., Oct, 23:

http://tinyurl.com/AfCD-Colo

Such a bird could very easily be written off as a standard-issue Eurasian 
Collared-Dove. Although many "domestic" African Collared-Doves are 
distinctively pale, many "wild types" are as dark as Eurasians. The best 
field mark is the under-tail. From below, the entire tail complex 
(rectrices plus coverts) is uniformly pale on African Collared-Dove, 
distinct from the high-contrast under-tail pattern of the Eurasian 
Collared-Dove.

This photo of the same African Collared-Dove as depicted above shows the 
uniformly pale under-tail region:

http://tinyurl.com/AfCD-Colo-ventral

More important than visual differences are aural differences, and, 
fortunately, *Streptopelia* doves are noisy throughout the year. The most 
obvious difference is in song. Here is the song of the same African 
Collared-Dove as discussed above:

https://soundcloud.com/ted-floyd/african-collared-dove

Sorry, my neighborhood is noisy, and the bird wasn't particularly close 
when I made this recording.

And here is the song of a Eurasian Collared-Dove, also singing in the 
distance this morning in my noisy neighborhood:

https://soundcloud.com/ted-floyd/eurasian-collared-dove

In this recent post to COBirds, Nathan Pieplow neatly summarizes the 
differences in vocalizations between African and Eurasian collared-doves:

http://tinyurl.com/Pieplow-Streptopelia

Nathan mentions the African's descending cackle, distinct from the 
Eurasian's monosyllabic groan or sigh. In this video of our African 
Collared-Dove from Lafayette, you can hear that cackle as the bird lands on 
a fence:

http://tinyurl.com/AfCD-Colo-video

This video is instructive in other regards. First, note the bird's wing 
whistle. Can the wing-whistle of the African Collared-Dove be separated 
from that of the Eurasian Collared-Dove?--I think that's something for us 
to work out. Second, you might very briefly glimpse a second bird in this 
video: a much paler bird, one that matches the "fawn-colored variant adult" 
in *The Sibley Guide*. I have seen birds like this around Lafayette. I 
think these should be entered into eBird as "African Collared-Dove 
(Domestic type or Ringed Turtle-Dove)." However, I believe that the "wild 
type" individuals should be entered as "African Collared-Dove."

African Collared-Doves and their genes are here. Let's get out there and 
figure out how extensive this phenomenon is in Colorado!

Jeannie,
Adult Cooper's as has been said.The creatures breast color is brown, not 
red or rusty! An oddity! By virtue of melanism,leucism or albinism. Or any 
combination thereof.

It was not very light, and I saw a dark bird..raised my camera and took a
few shots...and then couldn't identify it. I had taken a Cooper's there the
week before at a SW exit, and they just didn't look the same

Plus eye color is wrong for adult Coop, unless it's a light and photography
thing.
