? marks for my weak ID capability

05-06-05 1200
First & O'Fallon are street names, 100 yds northwest of the power plant or maybe a mile north of the Arch, area is rundown industrial

The Western Kingbird at this FOY (for me) sighting was up on the power wires and was active.   Species seen in the area by me last year (usually closer to the Mississippi where the bike trail passes through the flood wall).  The presence of species in north St. Louis City industry areas is known (WGNSS Birds of St. Louis). 

The Northern Rough-Winged Swallows seem to be setting up a much more-than-just-a-pair nest in the obvious horizontal drain pipes three feet off the ground (in the tall building there).

Two hundred yards north at the next east/west street near the break in the flood wall was today and is killdeer territory.
