Another good morning here yesterday with seven warbler species actively feeding. American Redstart male, Magnolias, Blackburnian, Bay-breasted, Black-throated Green, Chestnut-sided and FOS Black and White Warblers were here. Also had FOS Cedar Waxwing call and Gray-cheeked Thrush at the bubbler late in the day. Swainson’s Thrush also had gotten in the water. Ended up with 26 species for the best day so far this month.

The Redstart, Chestnut-sided and Blackburnian warblers were photographed. Here's the link:

Below is the checklist and field notes from the field trip on 19 September
2018 by Paul McKenzie, Pete Monacell and Brad Jacobs to Mark Twain Lake. We
saw a first non-breeding plumaged Red Phalarope among ring-billed gulls
from the end of the peninsula by Indian Creek Marina on Mark Twain Lake. It
was out in the bay a few hundred yards. It flew shortly after we saw it and
we searched for it from another access point up that arm of the lake but
didn't find it.

Subject: Glossy/White-faced ibis @ Eagle Bluffs
The 2 dark Ibis were still present at Eagle Bluffs this morning, visible in Pool 14. From the parking lot they were about half the distance from there to the blind, in the company of Great Egrets.
I was unable to determine eye color, because of distance, and leg color, because the legs were concealed by vegetation.
The bills appeared light tan, BUT the sun was bright and could have caused that color effect. Sibley states, "reliably distinguished only by eye and face color", so I guess the bill color is not important.
Does anyone have good photos or the inclination to walk out there for a closer view?

Brown Pelican was reported this last weekend but no Sabine's yet.
With the cold front coming through this weekend, there could be some
good birds
like Sabine's gulls, jaegers, R-N or Red phalaropes seen.  Maybe a
passserine fallout if the
weather systems come through at the right time.



Good fall birding,

Subject: South Farm mystery, Red-breasted Nuthatches, latish Canada Warbler
South Farm magic bird disappearance

This afternoon I birded the University of Missouri's South Farm--the Beef Research Farm and the headquarters area. I've been birding these sites regularly lately. The last time I was there I noticed a severe drop in numbers of Rock Pigeons, Mourning Doves, Eurasian Collared-Doves and European Starlings. Today the areas were even more drastically reduced. The totals for both areas were: Rock Pigeon 1, Mourning Dove 1, Eurasian Collared-Dove 10, European Starlings 0.

I know 2 falconers have been flying birds there recently, but that is a regular activity and cannot be responsible for this dearth. I wondered about poison, but saw no carcasses. Even on days as hot as this, birds have been around.

After I got home, it hit me: at the headquarters area I saw a woman loading a drone into a vehicle. The South Farm Show Off day is Saturday, September 29.

1 + 1 = Using a drone to scare birds out of the area before the visitors come? That's my bet. Any takers?


I watched 2 Re-breasted Nuthatches at Pine Ridge campground in Callaway County.

A late (but not record late) Canada Warbler was at the parking area a Ashland Lake in southeast Boone Co.

A few of us saw the marbled godwit at Riverlands this morning. It was out in the south end of Ellis Bay, in mudflats in the area between the end of Ellis Island and the Dam. It was hanging out with a willet.

Subject: Harris' Hawk
Have there been reports of a Harris' hawk in Franklin County? I saw what I was sure was a Harris' hawk on Highway AT in Villa Ridge last weekend (9/8). It was sitting on an old blue quansut hut on the north side of the highway. 
I asked some falconers, thinking they had an escapee, but got no response.
I have looked at the Harlan's morph of a red tailed hawk, but they just have too much white on them.
With that dramatic chestnut to dark brown contrast, I cannot think what else it would be.
Thanks,

Subject: MDC Photograph Collection Online
Greetings:

Just thought some of you would like to know that the historic Missouri Department of Conservation photograph collection has been posted online by the Missouri State Archives.

http://cdm16795.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/landingpage/collection/p16795coll24

There are over 4,500 images in the collection, some 200 of which are of birds.

If you find any errors in identification, please let me know and I can fix them. (I'm the one who processed the collection and put it online through my job at the Archives, although today I'm writing you from my personal e-mail account just as a fellow (amateur!) birder.) Of note are a few accidental birds, including a sooty tern that landed in the state in 1995. Alas, he didn't live long. There are several images of bald eagle introductions, northern bobwhites, peregrine falcons, etc. that the Department helped to reintroduce.

I hope you enjoy it!

I just checked in with Bill Eddleman, trying to get a guestimate head count for the Saturday, September 29 field trip I'm leading. As usual, registration at this time remains low. Come on you last minute folks, there are plenty spaces on good field trips and some excellent presentations. And of course the opportunity to catch up with old (some not so old) birding friends and meet birders from all around the state--always fun to put a face on a Mobirds name.

I found a dead banded "homer" pigeon many years ago, when I was first beginning to bird. It stumped me, too, because it was sleeker and differently colored than the "typical" rock pigeons we see around towns. I was surprised at the identification when I learned from the response to the band numbers. It was a good lesson in many ways.

This time of year we often have large flocks of 30-40 in the mornings and evenings feeding on our cedars and visiting the water feature. No flocks that large yet.

Greetings,

I have had a little bit of time to watch for migrants in the yard the last few days. Red-headed Woodpeckers continue to move through in decent numbers as well as a some warblers and vireos. Hummingbird numbers are still strong and we still have a couple Baltimore Orioles hitting the jelly feeder Warblers have included: Yellow-throated Warbler, Northern Parula, Tennessee Warbler, Orange-crowned Warbler, and a new one for the yard Bay-breasted Warbler. Yesterday we had our first Pine Siskin of the Fall and a brief stop by a Red-breasted Nuthatch. I wish I had more time to catch what else is lurking out there and hopefully I will get a few more opportunities to check.

Good birding everyone,

I'm banding hummingbirds in Arizona right now, so I've not been tracking Missouri weather this week. This is just past the peak of migration time, when hummers will take advantage of any cold front to catch a free ride south on the tailwind...a reverse fallout, if you will. Expect numbers to fluctuate daily, as some birds leave and new ones arrive from farther north.

Join the St.Louis Audubon Society for a beginner bird walk along the Busch
Greenway in St. Charles County at the Duckett Creek Trailhead access point.
Bring the whole family and learn from the experts as we explore this
beautiful trail. No bird is too common on these walks, the pace is easy and
the terrain will be mostly flat. Bring your binoculars if you have them;
loaners will be available. Please wear comfortable shoes, bring water, and
dress for the weather.

If we need to cancel due to rain, we will notify you by post on the St.
Louis Audubon Society Facebook Page.

The walks are free, but we are asking folks to sign up in advance so we can
plan accordingly and contact you should anything change! Click here to
register.

To get to Busch Greenway-Duckett Creek access, you can take either MO-94
west from Instestate 364 or Interstate 64/U.S. Hwy 40 to the MO-94 exit and
go west to Missouri Research Park Drive. There is NO traffic light and you
can only turn left off of MO-94. Follow The Research Park Drive thru the

Subject: St. Louis Audubon Society & Great Rivers Greenway Beginner Birdwalk
Join the St.Louis Audubon Society for a beginner bird walk along the Busch
Greenway in St. Charles County at the Duckett Creek Trailhead access point.
Bring the whole family and learn from the experts as we explore this
beautiful trail. No bird is too common on these walks, the pace is easy and
the terrain will be mostly flat. Bring your binoculars if you have them;
loaners will be available. Please wear comfortable shoes, bring water, and
dress for the weather.

If we need to cancel due to rain, we will notify you by post on the St.
Louis Audubon Society Facebook Page.

The walks are free, but we are asking folks to sign up in advance so we can
plan accordingly and contact you should anything change! Click here to
register.

To get to Busch Greenway-Duckett Creek access, you can take either MO-94
west from Instestate 364 or Interstate 64/U.S. Hwy 40 to the MO-94 exit and
go west to Missouri Research Park Drive. There is NO traffic light and you
can only turn left off of MO-94. Follow The Research Park Drive thru the
industrial park until you see a sign that says: DUCKETT CREEK SANITARY
DISTRICT on the left side of the road past a stop sign. Turn left and
follow to bottom of hill where the trail starts. There is ample parking.

Subject: Riverlands: shorebirds etc.
Tom Parmeter and I spent 3+ hours at Riverlands this morning. After weeks
of high water, the level is lower now, and a lot of mud is exposed.
Shorebirds were present -- we had nine species total -- but many of them
were far out and hard to detect against the mud-brown background. Nothing
rare, but a decent variety that included scores of Least Sandpipers with
some Semipalmated among them, three Sanderlings, and a single dowitcher sp.

Our list also includes other species that we found while working along
Riverlands Way plus a check of Lincoln-Shields. Best were a rather early
Merlin and a group of Bobolinks overhead. It has become much harder to
record Indigo Bunting, Common Yellowthroat, and Dickcissel, but we did get
token individuals.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48353226

Tomorrow looks bad weather-wise, but the habitat suggests that almost
anything might drop in there and make a visit worthwhile.

This morning at 9:05 am there were two Blue-winged Warblers at our bubbler. I had to leave shortly after seeing them and was away much of the day. Here's hoping that the converging fronts will push in a few more birds overnight ahead of the rain.

Yesterday, 9/4, I saw a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher working the grove of green ash trees next door. On Saturday, 9/1 there was another Canada Warbler and a first year female Magnolia Warbler feeding in our woodland behind the deck. I was able to get photos of the Magnolia and of the Blue-winged warblers today. Will post a link after I upload them.

There are Ruby-throated Hummingbirds here in high numbers every day. I can easily count 8-10 birds just working through the flowers in the garden, more at the six feeders encircling the yard. There are also begging American Goldfinches now.

Good birding!

Went out to the east edge of town to see if any more were to be seen. Only saw one while out there, and it was probably a local. Was a bit surprised to hear a House Wren singing from a brush pile.

A few people said that parking on the circle inside the park is also allowed but two people recommended against this because of historical crime incidents (don't leave anything of value visible in the parked car).

A few suggested also checking other parts of the park if Gaddy isn't feeling birdy! Thanks again to everyone.

There is plenty of street curb parking in the park seconds from the
garden. Personally I park on Magnolia Ave which is also literally about a
minute walk to the garden itself. If you get on Magnolia from Kingshighway
just look for the first open spot on the right which will not be far down
and the garden will be to your right. The only time parking in the park
would be an issue if there is some major event going on in the park which
usually happens on the weekend.

SWALLOW-TAILED KITE in Clay County, Arkansas at the intersection of Highway 90 and 141 west of Boydsville. My ebird post has the exact location and will have more photos.

Just posting this so those people birding Butler and maybe Ripley Counties in Southeast Missouri can keep an eye out for it.

Hello,
Have there been reports of Philadelphia vireos lately? I have a pair of confusing vireos in my yard.
I know the warbling vireo is more common, but these birds fit the description of a Philadelphia vireo more closely: a very dramatic face with a dark eye and bright white eyebrow, a more yellow tinted underbelly, not as white as a warbling vireo. I will be watching for beaks, because they are slightly different.
Any suggestions for me?
Also, still noting Carolina wren pair checking out nest sites. Is this in preparation for next year?
Thanks,

Subject: A Bill Clark column about ASM
Many of you know that Bill Clark of Columbia wrote a column for The Columbia Daily Tribune for many years. For the past year, he has written an online column available by subscription. Below is his latest column, of interest to all Missouri birders. I don't think he'll mind my forwarding it to you.

Edge Wade
Columbia, MO
<edgew...>


For 80-plus years, the Audubon Society of Missouri has held its annual fall meeting either in or near Camp Clover Point in the Lake of the Ozarks area.

The group’s fall bird list for the area is impressive – a collection of species from a wide variety of habitats from lakes to marshes to weedy fields and woodlands.

Even during World War II, when the ASM did not meet due to travel restrictions, local birders continued to do the annual fall bird census in the lake area, giving the ASM an almost unbroken line of data since 1937.

Times change and the ASM, which dates back to 1901, has changed. The ASM board, aware that many of the older members of the group could no longer handle the rustic facilities at Clover Point, decided to hold the fall meeting in more comfortable living conditions for a year and see if it might be possible to move the fall meeting away from its historical site, at least every other year. The group’s spring meeting is held at a different site each year – and has been since it became a fixture event four decades ago.

So – birders of Central Missouri – here is your chance to rub shoulders with many of the state’s best birders.

(Image from ASM website)

The ASM fall meeting will be September 28-30 at Columbia’s Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center, 2601 South Providence Road. A huge field trip program has been planned. Here’s the total rundown.

# To see the program on line, simply type in “Audubon Society of Missouri” and you’ll find everything you need to know, including a registration form. If Ol’ Clark can find it on the internet, so can you.

# Registration begins at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, at the Inn and the first field trip will leave 30 minutes later for the Pinnacles, north of Columbia.

# Following supper, the Friday evening program will feature a group of presentations by graduate students conducting research regarding bird life.

# Saturday will be filled with field trips, both half- and full-day, to such excellent birding spots as Eagle Bluffs, Little Dixie Lake, Whetstone Creek, Rock Bridge State Park, Prairie Garden Trust, Three-M Wetlands/Forum Natural Area, Ashland Wildlife Area, Bradford Farm and the Columbia Audubon Nature Sanctuary. Those field trips will continue on Sunday morning.

# Prior to the evening buffet banquet on Saturday, Dr. Carl Gerhardt will present his documentary, “Eagle Bluffs: An Environmental Success Story.”

# The Saturday evening banquet will feature Al Batt, a birder/writer/humorist from Hartland, Minnesota, whose topic will be “Bird Stories Told by a Bird Brain.”

# Following the Sunday field trips, the Sunday luncheon will serve as a roundup of all the birds seen during the three days in the field in Central Missouri. The list should far exceed 100 species – maybe 130, depending on the presence of waterfowl and shorebirds and fall passerine migration – warblers, vireos, sparrows, etc.

Today’s column is a bit removed from the normal backyard approach usually taken here. There is a method to Ol’ Clark’s madness.

For many of you who have become adept in your observations, it is time to at least listen – and visit – with those who have been to all parts of the world and have life lists up to 800 species, just in North America.

You can draw from those leaders the inspiration to learn even more about the birds with whom you share time at your feeders – year-round. No one expects you to suddenly take off for Alaska or Timbuctu to chase a rare bird, but enjoying this weekend just might make you a bit better birder in your own yard.

Give it a try – you’ll like it!

I know the warbling vireo is more common, but these birds fit the description of a Philadelphia vireo more closely: a very dramatic face with a dark eye and bright white eyebrow, a more yellow tinted underbelly, not as white as a warbling vireo. I will be watching for beaks, because they are slightly different.
Any suggestions for me?
Also, still noting Carolina wren pair checking out nest sites. Is this in preparation for next year?
Thanks,
Robyn ParkerJefferson County

Subject: Places to bird September, October, November
Mobirders,

The Conservation Area Checklist (CACHE) agreement between the Audubon Society and the Missouri Department of Conservation includes a commitment of Missouri birders to bird and report on eBird , with a special emphasis on sites within MDC’s Priority Geography Areas and COAs—habitats, landscapes and areas of special concern..

The agreement that went into effect July 1, 2018 includes 23 sites for emphasis, scattered around the state. Below is the list, with county(ies) included.

The challenge for this fall is to get out of your personal birding rut—whether it is to bird a familiar area at a time of year new for you, go to a place you haven’t been for 3 or more years, or to extend your horizon and bird an area you’ve never seen.

The sites marked with an asterisk have birding guides available to help you make the most of a visit to an unfamiliar site.

Kendzora CA—Buchanan & Platte Co.

*Helton Wildlife Area—Harrison Co.

*Big Creek CA—Adair Co.

*Donaldson Point CA—New Madrid Co.
*Black Island CA—Pemiscot Co.
*Seven Island CA—Mississippi Co.
*Ten Mile Pond—Mississippi Co.
*Tywappity Community Lake—Scott Co.

*Daniel Boone CA—Warren Co.
*Danville CA—Montgomery Co.

*Taberville Prairie—St. Clair Co.
*Wa-Kon-Tah Prairie CA—St. Clair Co.
Linscomb Wildlife Area—St. Clair Co.
Monegaw Prairie CA—Cedar Co.

Sunklands CA—Shannon Co.
Caney Mountain CA—Ozark Co.

*Meramec CA—Franklin Co.
*Huzzah CA—Crawford Co.
*Bismarck CA—Washington, Iron & St. Francis Co.
LaBarque Creek CA—Jefferson Co.

*Prairie Home CA—Cooper & Moniteau Co.
*Lamine River CA—Cooper & Morgan Co.
*Big Buffalo Creek CA—Benton & Morgan Co.

Bodacious birding!

Subject: Early morning at Eagle Bluffs CA still with shorebirds
I went to Eagle Bluffs CA in Boone Co this morning in the twilight and
stayed until about 10:30am, mostly at the blind area in Pool 14. I was able
to walk a ways to toward the bluff once out there to get the sun at a
bettern angle. Eleven shorebird species including two Western Sandpipers.
Also had an adult Black-crowned Night-Heron in the channel acoss from Pool
5. An olive-sided Flycatcher was in the trees along Perche Creek in Pool 15
stretch of the gravel road.

Pool 14 was drying up quickly as some may have noticed. There was a
complete blockage of the large underground delivery tube from the Columbia
treatment Lagoons. It has finally been clear away and a large amount of
water is now flying into the EBCA area. They will be putting more water
back into the mud flats in Pool 14 as I write so this would be a good time
to check on the the shorebirds as the water rises over the last 200 yards
of wet mud that was left when the water quickly went into the ground when
the blockage stopped the flow of water into the pool.

Below is my checklist for this morning.

Subject: Smithville Lake - Terns
I went out for a morning bike ride around Smithville lake today and was
blessed with many enjoyable sights. As I rounded a bend looking at the
south arm of the lake (from the dam), I counted 26 Forester's Terns flying
over the lake. There may have been more, or some Common Terns mixed in,
but that was my quick count and identification of a couple flying pretty
close without binocs. Upon my return ride, again near the main body of the
lake, were 7 Caspian Terns flying close to shore. I did see a dozen or so
teal flying high above the lake.

The sunrise was at my back and everything I viewed "popped" with clarity
and beauty as I rode. And, to the west and toward the dam, large cumulus
clouds were growing and being spectacularly lit up by the sun. A large,
flat anvil cloud was forming above them and it continued to grow until it
covered most of the lake. The Caspian Terns were especially well lit as
were a few small flocks of Canada Geese flying over me with the colorful
clouds in the background!! The White-tailed deer were also pretty common
in the early hours of the day and I rode by one half-grown fawn that froze
and its warm brown hair with fading white spots glowed with awesome beauty!!

Yes, it was a very good morning!! I hope you too have many beautiful
sights this Labor Day weekend!!

From: William Rowe <rowemb45...>
Subject: SLAS field trip results, Sept. 1
About 22 of us gathered at Teal Pond, Riverlands, yesterday for the first
St. Louis Audubon field trip of the 2018-19 season. It was warm and
variably overcast to sunny, and the Mississippi was very full, as it has
been for weeks. While these were not the most auspicious conditions, we
managed to find enough birds to hold everyone's attention.

The most obvious migrants were the Bank Swallows, which were passing
through in the hundreds; I held the estimate to 200 just to make sure it
was suitably conservative. In the shorebird department, besides Killdeer
and Spotted Sandpiper, we had just a few Arctic migrants, all at Teal Pond:
a group of Least Sandpipers that allowed everyone some good studies, plus a
single Semipalmated Sandpiper and Semipalmated Plover. Two Caspian Terns
also provided outstanding scope views, as did a group of Horned Larks that
included at least one juvenile. (Juvenile Horned Larks are always a puzzle
if you're not used to seeing them; you could imagine them to be almost
anything from a weird sparrow to a super-rarity.)

One Sedge Wren tantalized us by singing and diving into the grass, but no
good look was to be had; the same was true of a Bell's Vireo singing but
hidden at the Audubon Center, next to some Eastern Bluebirds. Down at the
end of Riverlands Way, everyone had distant looks at three Snowy Egrets and
a Cooper's Hawk that kicked up big numbers of Killdeer and Mourning Doves.

Here is the eBIrd list of birds seen at Riverlands:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48221661

We then headed up the river on the Illinois side to try for some shorebird
habitat at the Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge. We failed to find any,
but we did add some species plus nice views of egrets, pelicans, eagles,
etc. Here are the short lists we had at Gilbert Lake and then across the
Illinois River at Swan Lake:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48221852
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48221992

Note: I have shared these lists with everyone who I know has an eBird
account and for whom I have an email address. If I've missed anyone who
would like to have the list shared directly with them, please let me know
and I'll do that. And thanks to all for coming out and birding with us.

Wendy Williams and I birded Vlasis Park this evening and were treated to a
wonderful display of migrating Common Nighthawks. We counted 184 flying due
east and 3 birds heading west in the span of 75 minutes! A flyover Little
Blue Heron was an added bonus.

First for me (with Gail Gagnon) today, saw a lark sparrow along edge of gravel road on Confluence Road, couple miles off Riverlands. This was after birding with SLAS, so I guess their group brought me some luck. It completed a terrific morning. Happy birding!

I sat out in the back patio this evening and spent some time looking at the sky. Between 7:38 and 7:43 PM I had 20-25 Common Nighthawks fly over, all but one of them very high. They were heading east to southeast . None were spotted later until 7:55 when one more came over flying very low.

Subject: Fall 2018 Burroughs Field Trips
Hello all,

I'm extending a friendly invitation to one or all of the upcoming fall 2018
Burroughs Audubon field trips. In the two September trips, we will walk
around local parks searching for southbound birds. The two local Burrough's
trips in October have a mixture of driving and walking as we will focus on
gulls and sparrows. If you are interested in an overnight weekend trip, the
October 20th and 21st trip to Hitchcock Nature Center is a wonderful
opportunity to visit an official Hawk Watch location and watch Northern
Saw-whet Owl banding. Please note that space is limited for this trip and
must be reserved in advance. Visit the website for more information. A
great opportunity to meet Kansas birders from outside the region occurs the
first weekend of October with the Fall KOS meeting. See that website for
more details. In November the three trips focus on southbound waterfowl and
late migrants. Some winter trips are already posted on the website, but
look for more to be added in coming months.

The field trips are open to everyone of all skill level. Details for these
trips and more are posted on the website.

http://burroughs.org/its-free/field-trips-programs/

September 8 – Prairie Center
September 20 – Longview Lake
October 5th through 7th – Fall KOS
October 13th – Hillsdale Lake
October 20th and 21st - Overnight stay in Iowa requires RSVP as space is
limited!
October 27th – Clinton Lake Outlet Park
November 3rd – Smithville Lake
November 17th – Miami and Linn Counties
November 24th – Loess Bluffs NWR

If you are interested in leading or co-leading a trip please let me know.
We are looking for winter and spring trip leaders.

Good Birding,

I was out at sunset last night and quickly estimated ~30 Common Nighthawk over my house on the north side of Columbia.  Then, we drove down the street and continued seeing them dipping and darting back and forth ... until we reached a critical mass over a large set of power lines that was probably 50-100 birds in a giant disorganized kettle.  This was all around Brown School Rd last night at sunset.  I was driving and didn't have time to post anything ... I don't know if those birds will still be here tonight or what, but it was amazing.  I usually miss CONI migration.

Subject: Re: Migrating Common Nighthawks (COMO, TOO!)
I was out at sunset last night and quickly estimated ~30 Common Nighthawk over my house on the north side of Columbia. Then, we drove down the street and continued seeing them dipping and darting back and forth ... until we reached a critical mass over a large set of power lines that was probably 50-100 birds in a giant disorganized kettle. This was all around Brown School Rd last night at sunset. I was driving and didn't have time to post anything ... I don't know if those birds will still be here tonight or what, but it was amazing. I usually miss CONI migration.

Cheers and good birding,

I visited several of the access points around Mark Twain Lake in Monroe Co
in the morning of 29 Aug. and spent most of my time at the MTL State Park
Boat Ramp and Swimming Beach with all the gulls, terns and shorebirds.
Best two were a first of fall Bonapart's Gull and a non-breeding plummaged
Piping Plover.

Subject: turkey talk
The other day, Paul M. mentioned a very young wild turkey.
Maybe just a week or two old. Probably not a chance for
success, as was pointed out.

My little man, Mark, and I birded a Joplin cemetery, and we also
had young turkeys. There were 6 young wild turkey, They were with
4 adults. These six, however, were about one third full grown, and were
foraging very well on their own with the 4 adults. They were at
Ozark Mem. Cem., 2nd & St. Louis, Joplin. They were fully feathered,
and doing fine. There is a 25, or so, acre, oak forest just north of this
cemetery. Wild food crop is good, IMO this year, and they will do just
fine.

Thanks for your comment, Paul.
Good birding to all,
Larry, in Joplin.

I birded the front yard after dinner Wednesday night, beginning around
7:00. In addition to the usual suspects, I counted 52 Common Nighthawks,
mostly flying east, in just over an hour of birding. With a light breeze
coming out of the north, it was a beautiful night to be outside.

There were 4 CATE at Che-Ru lake this morning. Heavy overnight rain covered most of the mudflats at Bittern Marsh Pool so the number of Shorebirds went from 350 a couple of days ago to 6 today. Nice to finally get that much needed rain though!  I observed a loose flock of around 100 Am. Robins along a gravel road in NE Livingston Co. this evening.

Subject: STATUS CHANGES from the MBRC
Everyone:

My July 18 post outlined this year's changes made by the AOS. Please refer
to that post for a summary of the few alterations this produced in our
Annotated Checklist. In addition, the MBRC met recently (August 11) and
updated the Missouri status of a number of species.

If anyone would like a Word document that shows all the status changes, I'm
happy to send it. All the changes have already been entered online, so the
list as you see it there (http://www.mobirds.org/Birds/MOChecklist.aspx) is
fully revised and up to date.

The most detailed source for any species' status is, of course, Mark
Robbins' new book, *The Status and Distribution of Birds in Missouri*,
available as a free pdf, and also in hard copy. It offers a wealth of
information by season, with early and late dates of migrants, maximum
counts, historical patterns, etc. The Annotated Checklist reflects that
material in a simple set of codes that summarize each bird's occurrence in
Missouri.

Here are the most noteworthy changes:

1) Three species previously "casual" in Missouri have now reached the
threshhold of 15 or more records for listing as "rare." These are Roseate
Spoonbill, Swallow-tailed Kite, and Mountain Bluebird. "Rare" normally
implies that the species does not need to be documented for review by the
MBRC, and that is now true of the spoonbill and the kite. We have, however,
left Mountain Bluebird on the Review List (i.e., documentation needed)
because of potential identification difficulties, especially of females.

2) A few species are now considered "rare" in winter in central Missouri
(including the corridor from St. Louis through Columbia to Kansas City) and
thus no longer need documentation there. These include American Woodcock,
Gray Catbird, American Pipit, and Orange-crowned Warbler. For these,
documentation is needed only in the northern one-third of the state.
Conversely, Northern Saw-whet Owl is now listed as only rare statewide;
documentation is no longer needed in the south (and as more data come in,
it actually seems uncommon rather than rare in some areas).

3) Lesser Prairie-Chicken has been added to the Checklist as a Provisional
species, based on credible reports from the 19th century. For the details,
please see the account in Robbins.

Other changes result from additional records at one season or another, or
other adjustments to reflect the data in Robbins -- but no big surprises,
and a list would strain the reader's patience.

Users of eBird will already understand that, while a species that isn't
"casual" or "accidental" may not require review by the MBRC, it may still
be flagged by eBird as unusual and needing additional details in order to
be validated. More on this topic, from the MBRC and eBird jointly, will
appear here later this fall.

Secretary, MBRC

I found a nice flock of 25 Bobolinks at Poosey CA this morning. Nice also was a male Blue Grosbeak perched on a power line and doing a soft "whisper" song.
This evening while looking at an awesome light and cloud show from storms that went around us, I watched half a dozen Common Nighthawks working their way south over a hay field just east of town. Don't know if there had been more before I got there or not. Anyway it is time for larger numbers to be moving. Maybe next few days?

Subject: Central Kansas Burroughs Field Trip Report
This weekend 35 people from Missouri and Kansas participated with the
Burroughs Audubon Society of Kansas City's field trip to central Kansas.
With the help of many locals sharing sightings and passing along timely
information, an extremely gracious couple granting permission for this
group to visit their yard, and cooperating weather/birds we collectively
observed and enjoyed 115 species around Quivira, Cheyenne Bottoms, and
central Kansas. Below are brief highlights from evening on the August 24th
through late morning on the 26th.

The Clark's Grebe that Scott Seltman first reported on June 26th at
Horsethief Reservoir has remained for a couple of months and some of the
group made a side trip to chase the local rarity in Hodgeman County.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48045866

Donnie and Kathy Kazmaier's graciousness permitted many in the group to
observe Rufous and Broad-tailed Hummingbirds as well as White-winged Doves
for the first time in Pawnee County. Jeff Calhoun and Dan Larson refound a
family group of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks mere hours before our group
headed that direction and the ducks, less than a mile east of last year's
location, were quite fun to see.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48075245
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48075255

The hours looking for and scanning through flocks around Cheyenne Bottoms
Wildlife Area and the Nature Conservancy properties were awesome with owls,
shorebirds, ducks, waders, and gulls.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48075228
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48081329
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48085693

At Quivira National Wildlife Area we enjoyed studying close views of
Western Sandpipers of various ages and molts as well as Snowy Plovers,
other shorebirds, and ducks.

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48075143

The birds were good but time with old friends and making new ones while
enjoying nature was better. Good Birding,

Malcolm Gold (Overland Park, KS)

ahead of you on your right.

MEETING TIME: 7:30 a.m. We will check Teal Pond first.

TENTATIVE PLAN: We will spend some time at Riverlands, then probably take
off for the Gilbert Lake Division of the Two Rivers National Wildlife
Refuge (beyond Grafton in IL), expecting to return to Riverlands between
noon and 1 PM.

WHO: Everyone is welcome, whether a member of St. Louis Audubon Society or
not. Out-of-towners are invited!

CONDITIONS: Please dress appropriately for whatever weather is predicted.
At this writing, the prediction is for 70's and 80's with mixed sun and
clouds in the morning, and the possibility of rain in the afternoon.

Columbia Bottoms

Have been following a young turkey and and hen for about 2 weeks. They young one probably hatched 2 weeks ago and is very late compared to most I see, which are about full grown. Must have been a very late hatch. Does this happen often?

Thanks,
Paul

Subject: Red-necked Phalarope still present at Eagle Bluffs
I walked out into Pool 14 at Eagle Bluffs this morning past the blind to the end and had good views of the Red-necked Phalarope. I was later joined by John Besser who also enjoyed seeing the bird. Quite a few other shorebirds and peeps were also seen.

Cheers,

Yesterday, a female Canada Warbler was seen in a wafer ash near the garden. Otherwise, it was quiet most of the day with only the usual suspects around.

A red necked phalarope is still in Pool 14 near the blind at 8:30 am, 24 Aug. I have been photographing and videotaping it for a half hour. It came down with the storms I presume and may stay for a few hours or more.

Yesterday, about 11:45 am there was a single Canada Warbler checking out the bubbler and feeding in the thicket. It was seen again 2 hours later working its way south.

On Sunday, 8/19/18, I had a Chestnut-sided and a Blackburnian at the bubbler. Have video from bubbler cam on those, pics of the Canada which I'll post later.

Good birding, all!

Subject: Lazuli Bunting

Steve Kinder and I ventured to Squaw Creek (Loess Bluffs) NWR today. Overcast and cool lead to many good birds 7 Common Gallinule and 15 Least Bittern.
Best bird for me was the Lazuli Bunting, got good look, but sorry for Steve who didnt.

Bird was observed in the vicinity of the water pump on West side of Mallard Marsh at approximately 10:45 am. Observed for approximately 1 minute and it could never be relocated.
