 MO-Birders -

Has anyone seen the Scoter on Creve Coeur Lake this morning?

intolerable without the birds" ~~ Roger Tory Peterson

Quick trip to Creve Coeur Lake, St. Louis co.

A total of TEN ducks, not species, TEN birds....??
Scullers already there today?

Anyway......
In the little pod of ducks was a female BLACK SCOTER hanging with a Ruddy
Duck.
Twins of different mothers.

A very skinny loon on the lake but it was diving too much to get an absolute
100% ID.

Gulls were starting to gather by then. Mostly Bonies.

Good birding,
