Today I found two WEKI at the Burger King in Sikeston (I-55 exit 67). One perched on the wires and one on a nest atop a utility pole. When I checked here earlier in the month, there was only one bird and no nest. Perhaps the male arrived first and was waiting on the female. This is the third year they have been seen at this site, with the nest located on the same pole each time. This may be the eastern-most nesting record in MO.
