  • Hey all, I am writing tonight to see if there is interest in generating a daily Rare Bird Alert for the west slope of Colorado. It seems fairly obvious from the treatment of the La Plata County Yellow-throated Warbler or lack thereof on COBirds that the West Slope is a completely separate realm from the front range and eastern plains. Now that WSBN is being picked up on the ABA...

  • Hey all, Heather and I were walking on the Animas River Trail this evening across from the La Plata County Fairgrounds when I saw a small gray warbler fly away from me. I chased it, thinking it would be a Virginia's Warbler, but when I got on it again there was no yellow on the bird at all. The bird had some rufous on top of the head and eventually showed a rufous rump. The eye...
