CAGO.......Caged Goats?
Having a BIG brain "burp" right now, can't think what CAGO would be..geez.
Still hearing birds in my head from Count weekend......What day is this?

Speaking of BLACK TERNS.....
Didn't have the numbers that Scott did at Winfield, but maybe about 100 
finally zoomed by waaaaaaaay out closest to the duck blinds, so that might 
be IL. (Don't know where the state line might be up there).
Only shorebird I could find was one BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER in full on breeding 
plumage on the closest sandbar, 6 or so CASPIAN TERNS and the rest 
cormorants, gulls and pelicans. Did not walk down the levee to view the 
other side of this sandbar.......where the sanderlings and common terns 
surely are.

Good Spring birding,
Charlene Malone
St. Louis co.
