There were many posts the last year or two at Little Creve Coeur Lake in west St Louis county.

  What is the current status of Common Moorhen in Missouri? Three and four 
years ago, Common Moorhen was easy to get at the south end of the Squaw 
Creek NWR loop, and I saw adults two years in a row at Bob Brown WMA. They 
were also easy to get in the waste water ponds in Columbia.

If there have been posts about them in the last couple of years, I have 
missed them. I have also missed them in my personal trips to Squaw Creek and 
Bob Brown.

The 1986-92 Breeding Bird Atlas shows only one record of Common Moorhen 
during the seven year atlas period -- a "possible" at Ted Shanks WMA.

Have they disappeared now that the drought is over? Or are folks still 
finding them?
