The Audubon Society of Missouri invites all to participate in a birding day
at Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary (RMBS) in West Alton, Missouri on
January 19th, 2008. ASM membership is NOT required and there is no cost to
participate. Meet at the visitors center at 9:00 a.m. The Visitor's Center
will be open at 8:30 a.m. and heated for our use that day thanks to Philip
Manhart, Natural Resource Specialist, US Army Corps of Engineers. RMBS is
best in January WHEN it is COLD. So, we hope for COLD weather! If cold,
dress VERY warm as the winds coming off the water can be significantly
colder than air temperature! 
 
Current forecast (7 days out) is looking like 29 degrees for a high!
 
Tentative itinerary for the day: Meet at the RMBS Visitor Center at 9 a.m.
Bird the area (including Lincoln Shields) AND the Illinois side (Barge
Terminal, etc.) Bird this area through 11 a.m. or so. Move to Columbia
Bottom. Bird till 2:30 p.m. or so and then return to RMBS for the gull roost
/ dark. Bring your FRS Radios tuned to 11/22. If we separate into smaller
groups for logistical reasons, we can keep in touch with the radios. Leaders
will use radios and cell phones to keep in contact with one another and
update the various smaller groups as to what is being seen, when and where!
Bird Possibilities: Thayer's, Iceland, Glaucous, Lesser Black-backed Gulls,
Pipits, Snow Buntings, Raptors, Scoters, ??????
