This is the Monday, May 1, 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 **
