I am not sure what the purpose of the trip is. If it is to get eastern birds
uncommon in Kansas, especially warblers, don't leave Roaring River until you
have Hooded, Worm-eating, Cerulean, Yellow-throated, Pine, Prairie and
Blue-winged along with more widely ranging warblers like Black-and-White,
Am. Redstart, Oven Bird, La. Waterthrush, Yellow, Prothonotary, Kentucky,
No. Yellowthroat and Chat. (See Patti & Zimmerman guide -- especially Butler
Hollow--  for directions how to bird Roaring River). If it is to fatten the
Missouri state bird list, consider the following:

Henslow's Sparrow -- Taberville Prairie
Greater Prairie Chicken -- Taberville Prairie
Grasshopper Sparrow -- Taberville Prairie
Missisippi Kite -- Horton Road or East unit of 4-Rivers W.M.A.
Willow Flycatcher - handicap blind at Schell Osage
Bell's Vireo -- handicap blind at Schell Osage
Red-shouldered Hawk -- Schell Osage, 4-Rivers
herons -- Schell Osage, 4-Rivers.

Blue Grosbeak and Scissor-tailed Flycatcher are birds you should get on the
way from Cassville to Schell Osage, especially if you go up Route 97.

Taberville Prairie may be the most interesting wildflower location. Look
there for Indian Paintbrush, Shooting Stars, etc.

Unfortunately, it is the wrong time of year to expect migrants at Schell
Osage.
