Three Uncommon Birds At Red Rocks Park

October 28, 2010

Richard Stevens:

When I returned to Denver about 2:00 pm, I read about the three uncommon birds at Red Rocks Park (Jefferson County). I turned around and headed over that way.

Several birders had been at the Trading Post for about an hour and a half without any sightings. Within 5 minutes of my visit, the Curve-billed Thrasher made an appearance! Minutes later the Golden-crowned Sparrow showed. Another ten minutes later, the shy adult White-throated Sparrow also appeared! The Curve-billed Thrasher was a new personal county species and a nice end to my day!
