This is the Friday, November 29, 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.

Today, Friday, November 29, Steve Kinder found 4 SNOW BUNTINGS at the
new wetlands near Chillicothe.  They were beside the lake, flushed and
flew to the island in the middle of the oxbow lake.  This is near the
center of the area that has been seded to establish a wet prairie.  It
is now a bare, open, level area.  Also present was a small flock of
LAPLAND LONGSPURS and a few Horned Larks.

At Mozingo Lake (Nodaway Co.) today Larry Lade found the BLACK SCOTER
(with much of the yellow knob still on the bill), best viewed from the
main campground area; the WHITE-WINGED SCOTER (seen near shore by the
boat dock area); one Common Loon; 3 collared Trumpeter Swans; 2 Snow
Geese and an assortment of diving ducks.

At Riverlands Demonstration Area, St. Charles Co., this morning 1
SANDHILL CRANE flew from the back of Heron Pond (Orton Rd. side) toward
Ellis Bay toward Ellis Island, observed by Josh Uffman.  the 8 SURF
SCOTERS were still present.

Josh did not relocate the 2 (possibly up to 4) White-winged Scoters above
the Winfield Lock & Dam 25 associating with a small group of ruddy ducks
and buffleheads that Scott Schuette saw Thursday.

At Otter Slough CA, Stoddard and Butler Cos.) several groups of 4-8
American Pipits, 150 Wilson’s Snipe, Rusty Blackbirds, 6-8 Western
Sandpipers, 2 Great Egrets, and one Black Swan Cygnus atratus, native to
Australia--a popular captive “show off” bird, earlier reported by Bob
Lewis. were seen by David Rogles.
