Osage Co. sites today showed the effects of the weather change.

Golden-crowned Kinglets were at Rollins Ferry Access and Ben Branch  
Lake CA.

Ben Branch Lake held some surprises:

FOS (for me) Fox Sparrow
"          "       Dark-eyed Juncos (2)
"          "       Northern Shovelers (3)
"          "       Lesser Scaup

Also present were Yellow-rumped Warblers, Orange-crowned Warbler, and  
a lone Double-crested Cormorant.

Ben Branch Lake is a target area (one needing several visits) for  
CACHE.  Winter visits should be interesting.  Bald Eagles winter  
here; the habitat is varied.
