This is the Thursday, April 24, 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: **


A potential first state record MEW GULL (first-cycle)
was found by Doug Willis on Friday, April 18, at
Smithville Lake’s Little Platte Marina (Clay Co.).  A
map of Smithville Lake can be found here: .  On the
map you'll find Little Platte Marina is marked with a
boat anchor icon in "Little Platte Park" on the west
side of the lake.  The bird was perching on the
uncovered boat slips at the south end of the marina
and was still present there on Saturday morning, April
19.  However, on Sunday, April 20, the bird was
observed at Access #15.  To reach access #15, take Hwy
W to Hwy J.  Next, take the second left off Hwy J (a
short road) and go approximately 1/4 mile.  At the
intersection continue straight to Access #15 as marked
on the Corps of Engineers map.  At Access #15 you can
walk through a stubble field due north to the lake,
about a 3/4 mile walk.  Later in the week, Wednesday,
April 23, Doug found the MEW GULL at the Little Platte
swim beach amongst Ring-billed Gulls.

Also at Smithville Lake, Kristi and Adrian Mayo
observed 12 AMERICAN AVOCETS on Tuesday, April 22.

Creek NWR (Holt Co.) with Tommie Rogers and Peter
