MoBirders,

The change in weather has not reached Riverlands just yet, though there is a visible change in the bird species.

The Black scoter continues (as of 12:45 p.m.) near the siphon pipe over the rip rap at the dam.  It was quite feisty, agressively chasing other ducks that wanted to dive in its territory.

I had a flock of red-breasted mergansers (8 birds)- the largest count of the fall so far.  There were 75 or so horned  grebes (only a single yesterday), and a nuptial male common goldeye.  I always forget, from season to season, how beautiful a fresh set of feathers are on the ducks.

Good birding
