Wilson's Plover is NOT on the big board list [I have it in Columbia].  The reporting of it is an input error.  Now, I suppose I'll be charged with adjusting the total so my Saturday evening prediction of 182 species would be correct.  (insert insipid smiley face)

All who attended the Spring Meeting in Kansas City are grateful for an outstanding experience. Liz and Mike Stoakes and the many Burroughs Audubon Chapter are to be commended for a superb job as hosts.
 
The weather on Friday and Saturday was perfect for great field trips, lots of birds and a little sunburn. A total of 183 species is something to brag about. Too bad everyone could not be on each of the field trips. The Eurasian Wigeon was a life bird for many, if not all who went to Squaw Creek. There were more life birds for many participants.
 
Below is the total list for all field trips. Read through it and see what the Kansas City area has to offer this time of year. Let me know of any additions or corrections.
