Just got home for a two day birding expedition with lots of driving.  Found 
Scissor-tails in Cass County (Belton), Four Rivers CA, Clinton MO, Hi Lonesome 
Prairie south of Sedalia and Eagle Bluffs CA.  That should be 5 in 5 different 
counties in 2 days.  It's good to see them all over the place.  I refound Kristi 
Mayo's Imm Little Blue at Four Rivers, but most of the shore birds had left the 
area on the high winds.  Did find a few not on the CACHE checklist for Four 
Rivers, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher and Rose-Breasted Grosbeak.  I will add them 
to CACHE ASAP.  Also Northern Waterthrush is not on Little Dixie Lake's List 
and that will be corrected ASAP.

I hit Four Corners CA, Hi Lonesome Prairie, Little Dixie Lake CA and Eagle Bluffs 
yesterday and today.  Beautifull days to get out and bird.
