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.
