Yesterday morning I observed a western kingbird on a wire here in Jasper County, sw. MO. It was on Blair Rd., about less than 1/2 mile due east of MSSU football stadium. I was there to look for painted buntings that I observed there last year and the year before. This site is far away from electric power stations, where WEKI have become common summer residents in the last 10 years or so. WEKI are nesting on the electric power station again at 5th & Kentucky, downtown Joplin. They have been there regularly for about 10 years. Good Summer birding, Larry, in Joplin. 6-29-20.
