This is the Thursday, April 7, 2005 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.

The number of observations reported in the state has increased during 
the last few weeks, corresponding with warmer temperatures and an 
influx of spring migrants. So far this spring, however, few 
out-of-the-ordinary birds have been caught in Missouri airspace.

PEREGRINE FALCONS were reported in two spots this week. The first 
report came from Ken Thompson, who saw one PEREGRINE FALCON moving 
around downtown St. Louis on Thursday, Mar. 31. The second report came 
from the west side of the state at Four Rivers CA (Vernon Co.), where 
J. Pat Valentik saw one falcon near the headquarters on Sunday, April 3.

Four GREAT-TAILED GRACKLES (rare in the east) were reported by Josh 
Uffman near South Shore (St. Charles Co.) on Sunday, April 3.

On Thursday, April 7, Mike Brady reported that at least three HENSLOW’S 
SPARROWS have returned to the field along the Castlewood Loop of the 
Chubb Trail at Castlewood SP (St. Louis Co.).
