This is the Thursday, October 17, 2002, Missouri Bird Alert, a statewide 
service of the Audubon Society of Missouri, serving the birding 
community of Missouri since 1901.  The bird alert is compiled from 
reports submitted by ASM members and other birders throughout the state.

Missouri birders receive this alert directly on MOBIRDS, the free e-mail 
listservice supported by ASM.  ASM members also receive the 
organization’s quarterly journal, “The Bluebird”.

Report bird sighting information via the internet, either on MOBIRDS or

A ROCK WREN was found on the glade at Henning CA, Monday, October 14, by 
naturalist, Bo Brown.  To reach Henning CA:  From the junction of US 65 
and MO 76 in Branson go west on MO 76 for 5.7 miles.  Access to the area 
will be on your right via a one-way loop parking area/road.

On Wednesday, October 15, there were no confirmed sightings of the ROCK 
WREN; however, both Bo Brown (in the mid-morning) and Mike Warnock 
(early afternoon) saw what they felt was PROBABLY the wren in the rocks 
that line the parking area as you stand with your back to the viewing 
platform and look toward the parking lot.

Monday, the ROCK WREN was seen on the return leg of the Glade Trail.  Bo 
suggests the quickest way to get to the site is to take the right fork 
where the return loop enters the main trail.  After the long bit of open 
glade, there is a clump of trees with an old log bench.  The bird was 
just before the entrance to the clump of trees.

ROCK WRENS are “casual” in western Missouri in the autumn.  Be prepared 
to document this bird for review by the Missouri Bird Records Committee.

One Common Loon was seen at Smithville Reservoir (Clay Co.) this week, 
and two were on Fellows Lake (Greene Co.

A Greater Roadrunner was shuttling through the blueberries at Persimmon 
Hill Berry Farm, southern Stone Co., Wednesday, October 16.
