Recently on this list there have been quite a few sightings of Wood 
Thrushes, Orange-crowned Warblers and Golden-crown Kinglets.  Usually 
the birds showing up in the St. Louis area end up down here a few 
days or week later, so I went over to the nature center hoping to 
find these as they would be new birds for me.  Did find thrushes, 
kinglets and warblers, but alas, not the ones I was looking for.  Did 
find that Dark-eyed Juncos and White-throated Sparrows had shown up 
here, I hadn't seen them down here this fall yet.  Quite a few Hermit 
Thrushes were very vocal and moving through the underbrush.

Below a short list of the birds here this cold dreary late afternoon.
