Spring Park reservoir, Monday: no White-rumped Sandpipers
No sign this morning of any White-rumped Sandpipers at Spring Park reservoir, El Jebel, but there’s a lot of mud as the water dwindles away.
The basic plumage Common Loon is still there, as well as 2 Spotted Sandpipers and a good selection of ducks including Bufflehead, Redhead, Northern Pintail. Did not relocate the Western, Clarke’s or Eared Grebes (all seen at the weekend)
By the way..
Just outside our region...
For those who do not subscribe to the statewide listserve, you may be interested to know that Steve Mlodinow reports yesterday (Sunday) a great selection, and great numbers, of shorebirds just over the other side of the Continental Divide at Antero Reservoir (at 9,000 feet in Park County), including
47 WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS
3 SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS
1 BLACK-NECKED STILT
1 Baird's Sandpiper
Good birding all
