A quick walk on the trail at Big Creek CA in Adair county from 6-8 AM 
this morning produced some pretty good resident birds.  The male 
PRAIRIE WARBLER (casual summer resident in N. MO, but not sure if this 
one's a breeder--does it need to be doc'ed anyway?) is still around, 
though this time it was singing from farther off the trail... still in 
the vicinity of where the trail crosses Big Creek though.

Other rare birds included 3 WHITE-EYED VIREOS (rare in N. MO) and at 
least 3 BLUE-WINGED WARBLERS (likewise).  Otherwise the winds kept 
things pretty quiet.
