This is the Friday, April 4, 2008 Missouri Rare Bird
Alert, a statewide service of the Audubon Society of
Missouri, serving the birding community of Missouri
since 1901. The bird alert is compiled from reports
submitted by ASM members and other birders throughout
the state.
** NOTE: The report includes birds that are listed as
rare, casual, or accidental on the August 2007
Annotated Checklist of Missouri Birds.  Species that
appear in ALL CAPS in the "Species Mentioned" section
are listed as "casual" or "accidental" and thus
require documentation. (Note that some birds may be
considered rare only during a particular season or in
a particular part of the state.) The Missouri
checklist can be accessed at: **


Charley Burwick found 10 LONG-BILLED CURLEWS northwest
of Lockwood (Dade Co.).  The birds were observed with
multiple American Golden-Plovers in a farm field
referred to as the “John Deere Farm”, due to the green
and yellow buildings (DeLorme page 51).  To reach this
location, follow Hwy 97 north from Lockwood and then
turn west on Hwy VV.   Once on Hwy VV, take the next
turn north, and the road will then take you west
again.  Once heading west again, go about a half-mile
and view the fields just beyond the wheat fields.  The
green and yellow buildings are on the north side of
the road at this point.  This observation represents
the first record of this species in Missouri since
September 1996.
