We have had a terrific invasion from the north early November this year with 
all three scoters, Oldsquaw, rare loons and Western Grebes on both sides of 
the state, not to forget the Little Gull on the east side and Northern 
Shrike and Snow Buntings in the center.

This is just to say that it's not over yet. They are still reporting all 
three scoters in Iowa, as well as a Yellow-billed Loon discovered there 
recently.

Moreover, Kittiwakes have been seen in both Ilinois and Kansas.

Other birds seen in Iowa since November 7th that may yet wander down here 
include Little Gull, Oldsquaw, Red Crossbill, Pacific Loon and Red-necked 
Grebe.

The water birds won't winter in Iowa. Most should come through Missouri.

Keep covering Smithville Lake, Jacomo, Thomas Hill Reservoir, Bradford Farms 
and REDA, LCC, etc. It would not hurt to check out Stockton Lake and Table 
Rock Lake, if anyone can make it.
