Robbins and Easterla cite three fall records in November: one on 9 November and the others on 2 November. Yes, it is late, but not astoundingly so.

The post below raised the question of whether a Yellow-billed Cuckoo sighting on Nov 2 was unusually late.   Can't say for certain, but would add that a group of us had a juvenile Yellow-billed Cuckoo on Wed Oct 30 at a private preserve in Ladue, MO (St. Louis county).

The Prairie Falcon was back at Little Creve Coeur Lake about 4:00 PM Saturday, November 2.  It flew from west to east across the cornfield north of Seeger's golf driving range, landed on a tall metal electrical transmission tower, and then flew south to the next such tower.

A couple of hours earlier, at Castlewood State Park (in the tall trees near the Meramec River) I saw a Yellow-Billed Cuckoo.  Was that an unusually late sighting for this species?
