Speaking of closet birders we all know several I'm sure.
There is one that I went to school with who lives over in Carthage,
Jasper Co., MO.  He still looks at birds and keeps lists but is reclusive
and doesn't get involved.

I visited the food processing plant that he works at yesterday, 8-3-05.
Specialty Brands is two miles south of Carthage, MO., on Hwy 71.
I was told that a Greater Roadrunner entertained
the folks on morning break by running around the cars in the
lot some "three weeks ago."  (Early July, I guess).

Neighbors to the food plant's parking lot is a junk yard, so the area seems 
like an ideal
place for a roadrunner.  Plenty of lizards and mice to chase, I'm sure.

I now have recent records for the three sw border counties:  McDonald,
Newton and now Jasper County.

Good birding,  Larry Herbert,  Joplin MO.
