Congrats to the observers for finding the bird.  However, given it was present for 3 days, too bad they chose not to share it with the rest of the state's birders . . .

> At its annual meeting on September 23, the Missouri Bird Records 
> Committee accepted Gray Kingbird (Tyrannus dominicensis) as a new 
> species for the state, based on an observation of one bird at 
> Salem, 
> Dent County, on May 23-24, 2006, by David Plank and Loretta 
> McClure. 
> Although there is no physical evidence (photograph, audio 
> recording, 
> or specimen), the report meets the alternate criterion of having 
> two 
> written documentations that were "independently written and 
> independently acceptable," as stated in the bylaws. Both 
> descriptions 
> were thorough and diagnostic, and Plank's documentation included 
> excellent drawings of the bird.
> 
> The status of Gray Kingbird is (of course) T a, or accidental 
> transient. It will be added to the state checklist to be found on 
> line at www.mobirds.org.
