I visited deKoevend Park (Arapahoe Co.) this evening, hoping to collect my first juncos at the park. (There were a half dozen in my yard near the park, so I thought I might spot one there too.) I didn't see any, but a walk along the High Line Canal trail on the southwest side of the park yielded many robins, a Townsend Solitaire, seven White-crowned Sparrows, and my first Hermit Thrush at deKoevend.
I took the High Line Canal Trail back home, stopping on the southern edge of the park to watch, count, and photograph a flock of Bushtit. I'm glad I did. Above the Bushtit were a few Black-capped Chickadee. Above the chickadee were three Downy Woodpecker. Above the woodpeckers was a Black-and-White Warbler, my first in Colorado. (Photographs of the bird, which was fairly high in trees across the canal from me, are in my eBird checklist: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S32012559.) Two days ago, I had the good fortune of watching a late Common Nighthawk at deKoevend. - Jared Del Rosso Centennial, CO -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Colorado Birds" group.
