Compiled 10 Dec, 2004

This is the Friday, December 10, 2004 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.

On Thursday, Dec. 9, Bob  Lewis reported a late hummingbird coming to a
feeder at the home of Don Asher in Farmington (St. Francois Co.). This
morning, Lanny Chambers caught, weighed, measured, and released the
immature female BLACK-CHINNED HUMMINGBIRD. If accepted by the Missouri
Bird Records Committee, this will represent the first verified state
record of this species. The bird has been coming to the feeder about
every 20 minutes.

The Asher residence is at 109 Hawthorne, Farmington.  Phone: 573
756-9139. Visitors will be welcome to go around the left side of the
garage (or through the garage if open).  The feeder is hanging by the
back door. There are other bird feeders in the yard and they are very
active.  On entering Farmington from US-67, go to the fourth stoplight,
turn right on North Washington Street and drive past the courthouse to
East Columbia Street.  Turn left and go two blocks to State Hwy H and
turn right.  You will be on South Henry Street.  Go south, leaving the
city and turning left on Old Fredericktown Road.  Continue a few blocks
to Hawthorne, which is to the left. The Ashers live in the third house
on the left side.
