East of Denver

September 23, 2016

Richard Stevens:

This afternoon Terry Michaels and I visited ranches of two friends near Prospect Valley (Weld).  We were chasing a couple of interesting bird reports.  At private ranch #1, we missed a Blackburnian Warbler that had been seen the last three days.

At private ranch # 2, the Jack had seen what he thought was a Ruby-throated Hummingbird for three days (last sighting 9/21).  We sat for two hours, never saw a hummingbird.  Winds were 21 mph, gusts to 33 mph.

We found ourselves close to Last Chance Rest Stop (Washington) and decided to check it out.  A Brown Thrasher and Philadelphia Vireo were our reward for the 35 mile detour.
