Compiled 8 February 2006

This is the Wednesday, February 8, 2006 Missouri Rare 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.

** NOTE: The report includes birds that are listed as rare, casual,  
or accidental on the 2003 Annotated Checklist of Missouri Birds (with  
revisions in 2004 and 2005). 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.) The Missouri checklist  
can be accessed at: http://mobirds.org/MBRC/MOChecklist.asp **

The highlight of this report is an INCA DOVE (accidental winter  
visitor) in the Springfield area. Look for a complete Missouri RBA  
tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 9.

SOUTHWEST

An INCA DOVE was reported on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at the Springfield  
Conservation Nature Center (Greene Co.). The bird has apparently been  
visiting the center’s feeders for about one week, and has also been  
seen sitting on parked cars near the feeders. A window near the  
fireplace inside the nature center affords a good view of the parking  
area that the bird frequents. The feeders can also be observed from  
the viewing room inside.

The Springfield Conservation Nature Center is located at 4600 S  
Chrisman in southeast Springfield, just west of US-65 off the James  
River Freeway (US Hwy 60).
