A Three Golden-crowned Sparrow Day!

November 3, 2014

Richard Stevens:

I returned to Red Rocks Park (Jefferson) hoping for photos of the two Golden-crowned Sparrows that have been there since the first of November.  Several wedding photographers used the steps near the feeder.  The adult Golden-crowned Sparrow made two quick appearances and the 1st winter bird only one.

With most of the day left, I decided to drive up to the Teller Lake # 5 parking area (Boulder).  After a 20 minute wait, I was rewarded with my third Golden-crowned Sparrow sighting of the day!  Misses: the previously reported Palm Warbler.

My birding day ended along the DIA Owl Loop (Adams).  No Short-eared Owls came out tonight.
