Thanks for the information.  I like the idea of posting a reminder on were birds have been spotted.

Many times the limits have been "challenged", particularly after good birds
have been found (i.e. include ALL of Carlyle Lake particularly the northern
section that has had poss. breeding Purple Gallinule, Black Rail and Yellow
Rails sightings and the Black-chinned Hummingbird that was in Farmington,
52.3 miles from St. Louis City..sooo close, darn).......BUT it still remains
50 miles from the city limits......to my understanding.

Still......one can put on a LOT of miles trying to find birds making the
"usual" rounds.
Hopefully people will make it a point to post their findings to help out
their fellow birders AND to help keep gas consumption down.
Like the Iowa Listserve has incorporated in their sign-off:
"Please contribute your sightings to our list; it is only as good as members
make it!"  :-)

Good birding,
