MOBIRDS,



This morning Marissa Ahlering and I went to Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area, southern Boone County.  We birded the river trail and the ponds from 6:30am to 9:30am.  Good selection of birds, but nothing to drool over.  The biggest surprise was the 2 Snow Geese, which Carl Gerhardt just told me he had seen earlier in the week.  We bumped into Chris Corben at 9am and he pointed out the mergansers and Bank Swallows (thanks!).  The list and some details follows:
