Searching For 2019 Uncommon Birds

January 1, 2019

Richard Stevens:

After having a good 2018, I wanted to start 2019 off well.  

Barn Owl at Barr Lake (Adams).

Barrow's Goldeneye is still on the South Platte River (Adams), south of green/white tower (Adams).  South Platte Birding Area is good location to find many varieties of common ducks.

Fox Sparrow (red) was at Red Rocks Park (Jefferson).  Missed Golden-crowned Sparrow in Morrison for third time.

Black Scoter is still on South Platte Park Reservoir (Arapahoe).  Greater Scaup also around.

Rusty Blackbird pair was along western stream just south of Cherry Creek Reservoir main road.  Lake mostly frozen, missed Long-tailed Ducks, perhaps they were the pair reported in Littleton today.  Did find a Long-eared Owl, Northern Harrier, Red-tailed Hawk, Brewer's Blackbirds, Northern Shrike, Song Sparrows.
