I was quite surprised today to see a single, adult, male YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge, Mound City, Missouri.

I looked back in my Missouri records and the latest date I have for this species is September 4 (that was in 1995).

I will post a complete list of today's Squaw Creek birds when I get them ordered taxonomically.
