On Sat., Nov 14, at 9 PM I heard snow geese flying overhead. This was  
in St. Louis county, above my Kirkwood yard. The sky was heavily  
overcast. About 20 min. later I went outside and heard them again. I  
wonder if the flock was that large, or if they were circling.

Yesterday, I had to drive back and forth to St. Louis  saw a large  
flock of snow geese feeding in a corn field, just east of the Hatton  
interchange on I-70.   Other than that, it was a pretty miserable drive.

Subject: Little Dixie Lake, Callaway Co. Late Tree Swallow, 9 Co. Loons

A quick dawn trip to Little Dixie Lake in Callaway Co was very  
productive.  A late tree swallow was over the water. Late date is Nov  
24 in Robbins and Easterla 1992.
Other birds of interest:
Common Loon 7
Horned Grebe 1
D. C. Cormorant 1
Mallard 2
Gadwall 10
Lesser Scaup 150
Ring-necked Duck 20
Bufflehead 6
Ruddy Duck 5
Red-breasted Merganser 2
American Coot 7
Ring-billed Gull 1
Tree Swallow 1

The diversity of the birds today on Little DIxie tells me that there  
might be a lot of birds out on other lakes in this overcast weather  
and that a lake check might be a good thing to do soon.
