Their website doesn't indicate what counts are in the northern third of the
state...

An additional resource that I haven't searched through for Hermit Thrush
data is eBirds...

Perhaps Scott Schuette can let us know if in fact anything has been
submitted for the upper two-thirds of Missouri with regard to Hermit Thrush
between the years of 1901 and 2006 and the dates of CBC's...

Below are the counts listed for the state of Missouri from the Audubon CBC

It appears from Patrick's search that the number of Missouri Christmas
Counts reporting Hermit Thrush has increased from <1 in the period
1928-1961; to 1-3  from 1962-1975; to about 5 a year from 1976-1997. Since
1998, an average of about 12 Missouri CBC's per year have reported Hermit
Thrush.

At a minimum, these data indicate a northward movement of  Hermit Thrush's
winter range into Missouri. Whether that range has reached the northern
third of the state is unclear because we don't yet know how many of the CBCs
reporting the species were in that part of the state. If Patrick will kindly
point me to the names and URLs of CBCs in the northern third of the state,
I'll try to look at them on a circle-by-circle basis and report back.

I note that 19 Missouri CBCs reported Hermit Thrush in 2006. Surely some of
those counts were in the northern third of the state.
