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: http://mobirds.org/MBRC/MOChecklist.asp ** KANSAS CITY/NORTHWEST 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: http://www.nwk.usace.army.mil/sm/LakeMap.cfm . 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.
