Can directions be provided to reach Eagle Bluffs please?  I sure they have been posted before, but I cannot find them at the moment.

Thanks,
Steve Griffaw

Species included in this alert:
RUFF (REEVE)

A female RUFF (REEVE) found at 4:25 this afternoon was still present at
6:30 p.m. about 1/3 of the way down the first one-way loop at Eagle
Bluffs Conservation Area, Boone Co.

The Reeve is associating with Pectoral Sandpipers which are very
aggressive toward it (and sometimes each other). It is small, appearing
about the size (in length) of a Lesser Yellowlegs, thus the assumption
that it is a female.

It is in plumage most closely like that of an adult nonbreeding male as
shown in Sibley, p. 189. The white at the base of the bill was not
observered--or at least not commented upon by the observers present.

The drooping coverts, yellow-with-black tip bill (thicker than the
pecs’), brighter yellowish legs, smudgy streaks on the flank, and
chunkier body were easily observed. It stretched wings once, showing
the black axillaries.
