MoBirders,
The shift in winds is a good news/bad news proposition.  The accompanying rain made it hard to find a position to scope fields while not getting wet, but the wind did bring in some FOY birds.

At BK Leach I had FOY great egret
At. Glacial Sand/Keeteman sod farms: FOY least sandpiper
At Old Monroe: FOY Rough-legged hawk\

The Sod farms had a small mixed flock of shorebirds- 15 pectorals, 2 yellowlegs, 1 golden-plover, the least; probably a 100 killdeer, some snipe, 15/20 ring-billled gulls, a large flock of brewer's blackbirds.

The rough-legged was hovering, moving, hovering over the triangle on the east side of 79 that is formed by the long exit at the C overpass.  With the rain and slick pavement I nearly fishtailed into a wreck getting stopped to look at it.  

Not counting me, I had 42 turkeys for the day-30 at the southern boundary of Foley in a field on the west side of 79 and another 12 in BK Leach

Good birding
