Escape from Huerfano Cty, Red Rocks Park, Jefferson Cty

November 10, 2010

My aims were to stay in Las Animas County for a couple of days. The weather predictions of a snowstorm changed my mind and after a couple of hours of sleep headed back to Denver.

On the way home, I stopped at Red Rocks Park (Jefferson County). Six of us were there at 4:00 pm. All three of the uncommon birds showed up within 10 minutes.

First, the Curve-billed Thrasher came out of the brush north of the northwestern feeder. Seconds later, the Golden-crowned Sparrow popped out from the same area. A few minutes later, the White-throated Sparrow joined the many birds gulping down seeds. It was a great end to the day!
