Subject: RMBS birds - Black Ducks, Nelson's sparrow
Riverlands MBS, St. Charles co, MO FYI

We had 2 BLACK DUCKS at RMBS on 10/7.
One for sure is a Black Duck but the lighter, smaller bird's ID is in
(well, for me anyway)
IF anyone refinds these birds, please try to get good photos of the head
and the feather pattern on the body to include in your eBird list if
MANY thanks!

Also saw that there is an eBird list that is reporting a NELSON'S SPARROW
on the Wetlands Trail at RMBS. (sorry forgot date but within last few days)
Trails close at RMBS on Oct 15.

BTW........Still have at least two h'birds at feeder.
Keep a feeder out for stragglers.

Good fall birding,
