I raise your SURF SCOTERS by nine. I counted SIXTEEN (16!!) Surfs total (3 to 4 PM) 
10 clearly on the MO side, 6 in the DMZ area of REDA. Have to look on Randy's map.
The Corp's map would have all on the MO side. :-)
 
I counted 60 HORNED GREBES total at REDA with some of them vocalizing (only second time for me to hear them!)
 
Lousy weather = good birds.

MoBirders,
While out and about today:



At Highway V, one quarter mile west of M.Beckett Road, I had a Rough-legged Hawk, very dark phase. The back half of the head and neck was WHITE (perhaps mottled dark-wind was blowing) and the breast was flecked white above the traditional belly band. The bird was entirely dark; when it flew it showed a light grayish banded tail.Wings to end of tail on perched bird.

At REDA- 10 SURF SCOTERS (7 at the upper end of the Lock and Dam and at the same time, 3 in Ellis near the pit toilet point); 28 Horned Grebes (I had 16 more Horned Grebes at Creve Coeur Lake); 60+ Hooded Mergansers, 6 Red-breasted Mergansers, 1 Belted Kingfisher.

At the backyard: one chipping sparrow among the usual suspects.

Good birding
