MObirders -
I had 98 species here in Jasper County for Missouri's NAMC
yesterday, May 8.  I logged 10 hours of birding.
10 favorites IMO were heavy on shorebirds because we
don't have hardly any public land shorebird habitat here.
01    Sora
01    Lesser Yellowlegs
01    Solitary Sandpiper
03    Semipalmated Sandpiper
12    Least Sandpiper
01    Pectoral Sandpiper
01    Stilt Sandpiper
08    Wilson's Phalarope
01    Barn Owl
06    Great-tailed Grackle
10 big misses IMO were:
        Northern Shoveler
        Northern Bobwhite
        Green Heron
        American Kestrel
        Barred Owl
        Bell's Vireo
        Horned Lark
        Field Sparrow
        White-throated Sparrow
        Orchard Oriole
The Western Tanager didn't make a showing.
Good birding,
