This is the Friday, September 2, 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 report includes birds that are listed as rare, casual,  
or accidental on the 2003 Annotated Checklist of Missouri Birds.  
Species that appear in ALL CAPS in the “Species Mentioned” section  
are listed as “casual” or “accidental”. (Note that some birds may be  
considered rare only during a particular season or in a particular  
part of the state.)

In the Columbia area, one juvenile MISSISSIPPI KITE was seen by  
Kathleen Anderson at the Bear Creek Trail parking lot off of Garth  
Ave. (Boone Co.) on Friday, September 2. This is the same area where  
Harold and Kathleen Anderson have observed up to two adult  
MISSISSIPPI KITES since July.

In the southeastern corner of the state, the population of WHITE- 
WINGED DOVES in the town of East Prairie (Mississippi Co.) has grown  
over the summer from one confirmed bird on June 28 to at least five  
on August 31, reported Joe Eades. Since they were first located by  
Eades earlier this summer, the WHITE-WINGED DOVES have been seen  
consistently in the immediate area of Mo Hwy 80 and S. Dutch Drive.  
There is a brick, two-story house on the south side of Mo Hwy 80 and  
on the east side of S. Dutch Dr.; next door (the second house on Mo  
Hwy 80 east of S. Dutch) there is a home with a number of bird  
feeders, where the five doves were seen feeding together on August  
31. This intersection is on the west side of the town of East  
Prairie, near the green city-limits sign. There is a church parking  
lot across the street that provides a good view of the yard with the  
feeders.

In north-central Missouri, Steve Kinder reported on dark PEREGRINE  
FALCON at the north unit of the Thompson River Wetlands (Livingston  
Co.) on Tuesday, August 30.
