Warm Greetings during this chilly weather!
 
During this "slow period" in birding venues, I hope you don't mind my sharing with you '10/'11 Winter (to date) observations that will be turned Joe Eades, Winter Compiler, later in February. Below is the list (so far) of SEMO rarities, Casuals and general observations that pique interest. Sort of a quick summary of what this winter has brought us in the bootheel.
 
Counties include Stoddard, Mississippi, and Butler, and "Reason" is taken from the ASM's Annotated Checklist. Palm Warblers have been documented as of yesterday. Still looking for that Harris' Sparrow in the area! Work schedule is such that I can't go chasing anything more than an hours distance.
 
Please feel free to comment (publicly or privately) should you have questions, concerns and/or comments.
 
Bird On!
