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 was seen at Pike Run WA on the 4th.

A LEAST TERN was seen at Maskunky Marsh on the 2nd.

2 BLACK-BELLIED WHISTLING-DUCKS continue in a pond in Prairie City on the
