This is a general report of birds seen by others and a few by ourselves.

ILLINOIS BIRDS:
Hugo Road near Carlyle Lake, Clinton co. (see previous post with 
directions):
NORTHERN SHRIKE was seen early in the AM at THE brushpile along Hugo Road 
for a few hours by Dan Kassebaum, at least one of the Seiffert (sp?) bros, 
and a few other IL birders but not by many (any?) St. Louis birders during 
the remaining hours of the day.
Bird was last seen flying north toward Vogel road.
There are a million and one perching spots for this bird, so look in the 
corn stubble fields well and go there EARLY to look.

Dam East Access (alias Green Meadows) of Carlyle Lake
Dan Kassebaum found a juvie RED-THROATED LOON. Connie Alwood and friend got 
to see it, but those that came a few minutes too late did not.
It was RE-FOUND much later in the day by Bormann and Rogles from Point 18 
with much closer looks from Crappie Cove in South Shores.

Point 18 (Hickory Hollow in South Shores), Carlyle Lake
Dan Kassebaum found a WHITE-WINGED SCOTER.
Don't think anyone else got to see this bird.

MO BIRDS:
Riverlands MBS, St. Charles co.
Malones went there for the end of the day gull roost and to see if any 
waterfowl dropped in.
Typical stuff (no scoters or swans) but did get to hear a Common Loon 
yodeling and Great Horned Owls calling at the back of Heron Pond.

That's all I know about......probably forgetting something.

Later,
Charlene Malone
St. Louis co.
