Just spoke with Joe Eades who did not have any luc this morning (Sept. 24) in finding Kristi Mayo's LONG-TAILED JAEGER at Smithville Lake (Clay Co.). Joe said he arrived a little after 8AM and looked until 1 without finding the bird. Hopefully, he just had a really bad morning and it hasn't left. He has not birded much this year, so possibly he is losing his touch (or losing his bionic spotting abilities).
Of note though, he did find an adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL while. I have no clue where exactly.
