MOBirders,
After checking on my swans at REDA (23 Trmpeters, 1 mute), I headed over to Busch to do some woodland birding.  I had 3 red-breasted nuthatches (2 in the Pineteum) golden-crowned kinglets, the Harris sparrow at Lake 6 (someone cut all the weeds in front of the bait log-I only had to wait 5 minutes for it to show up at 11:45) and a GRAY CATBIRD in the trees next to the feeders on the Fallen Oak trail.  Robbins and Easterla have an early date of March 7th. Is there a centralize location of the current early dates for Missouri birds?

II had 3 field sparrows, 3 fox, american tree, song, swamp, harris's, white crowned and white throated, dar-eyed junco and eastern towhee.  

At REDA the peregrine falcon made a lazy attempt to follow 9 swans as they left pintail marsh, but it made no dive attacks.  Can't imagine it taking such a big bird
