This is the same area a Northern Shrike was seen by m.ob. October 27, 2000.  And same area I, as a beginning level birder in the mid-late '90s was sure I saw one, but no one else could re-find it.

While on my way to fishing yesterday, saw an adult Northern Shrike in a brushy area near the side of the road south of Thomas Hill Reservoir. The bird was seen off of Rt. F, approximately 1 mile west from the intersection of Hwy. C and Hwy. F, on the south side of the road in a brushy ditch. I didnít get the greatest look in the world, as I only had a pair of mini-binocs, but the undulating flight, long wings and tail, thin mask, and tail flicking were pretty obvious.
 
This would be the second latest date for NSHR in Missouri if Iím not mistaken. Iíll be sending in documentation, but itís worth checking if youíre in the area.
 
Good birding,
