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.
