There has been a little confusion on this posting.  Jeremy just called me this morning and asked me again to have people call before showing up at the Mudhole.


If you want to visit the Mudhole Duck Club in Orrick MO to see the Roseate Spoonbills and other birds, you MUST call beforehand to Jeremy Lindsay.  Do not show up unexpectedly and hope he is there and will let you in.  Jeremy’s boss, the owner, is running a hunting opportunities business for all sorts of critters.  This is a working hunt club and he may have clients at any time that have made appointments. Dove season client will be showing up as the season opens on Sept 1.  So call to be sure of a time when you can get in.


 Jeremy is the manager for the hunt club and has made it possible for birders to get access. 


Jeremy Lindsay




The manager, Jeremy, lives on the place most of the time but is from St. Louis.  He is off to Kansas today for a while, but will answer calls as soon as he can.  It is usually less than an hour when he returns calls.


The birds are doing still present and doing neat stuff Jeremy says and a  few birders were able to get in to see the birds.

Brad Jacobs has been contacted by Jeremy Lindsey, caretaker of the Mudhole Duck Club, 4827 Buist Rd., Orrick, MO.


Two ROSEATE SPOONBILLS have been on the duck club property for a few days.


This is a private, profit-seeking organization, but they will be pleased to host birders looking for the spoonbills.  Mr. Lindsey will guide birders to the site for $5.00 a person. (Duck hunting on the club's land is $400.00 a day.)


Below is the website and address of the club.
