Species in ALL CAPS can be classified into three categories in the state of
Iowa: 1) UNRECORDED, ACCIDENTAL or Casual; 2) A RARE but regular species;
or 3) record early or late date or unusual for time of year. Any species
with three asterisks (***species***) would represent a first record for
Iowa (UNRECORDED) and should be observed and documented very carefully.
Species with two asterisks (**species**) are species that are either
ACCIDENTAL, CASUAL, or a rare regular species, and should also be
documented. Species with one asterisk (*species) should have some details
of the observation provided.



A YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON is still being seen at Sand Point on the 11th.

2 MARBLED GODWITS were seen at Babcock Access on the 15th.



MISSISSIPPI KITES are still being seen in the vicinity of 2600 Fairlawn Dr

July 24, 2020 for the weekly report. Should any UNRECORDED or ACCIDENTAL
species be reported, an update will be posted.
