MO-Birders -
 
Five members of the Wagtail Senior Birding Club returned to St. Louis Saturday evening from our annual extended birding trip - a 10-day Rocky Mountain Birding Trip.  Since I took over 2700 photos, it will take some time to process them and get them out onto my web site. I will let you know when the trip photos are out there.  However, here is a rather long list of the 178 species we saw on the trip.  I got 20 North American lifers, Dave Pierce got 4, Dency Kahn got 15-20 and the other two members (Elliot Glassman and Karen Crebs) saw lots of new species!!
