Trip report: Hereford Ranch

Photo by Laurel Armstrong.
On Saturday, September 9, twenty birders joined our trip to the Wyoming Hereford Ranch in Cheyenne. And it turned out to be a beautiful day with excellent birds!

We found a total of 48 species. The highlights were a Blackpoll Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler, and Red-eyed Vireo. We also found a Blue Grosbeak and Cassin's Kingbird--not unexpected for Laramie County, but not always easy to find. Sparrows were lacking but there were flocks of finches--including more Lesser Goldfinches than I have seen all in one place.

The eBird checklist with photos of the rare warblers is here.
