Larry Rizzo with the Missouri Department of Conservation confirmed a report 
of a Black-bellied Whistling-Duck in Raymore today.  It is on a private 
lake, but if we respect the houses and do not launch boats, birders should 
be welcome.

Take 71 Highway to 58 Highway (Belton Raymore Exit)
Go east on 58 highway to the East Outer Road.
Go south on East Outer Road to W Lucy Webb Road.
Go east on Lucy Webb Road to Silvertop Lane
Turn north on Silvertop Lane and park near the dam.

The bird was observed along the shore with some domestic ducks.  A spotting 
scope could be useful.

I am on my way to see the bird.
