Three of us searched for the
Northern Shrike on the farm this morning,
three miles west of Pineville,
McDonald County, Hwy. H., and
had no luck. Brian Davis,
Joyce Haynes, and I, had 32 species
otherwise. It was very
windy. The birds will be placed on ebird.
The documented NSHR was first
observed on Jan. 6, and last
observed on Feb.
Another off topic item
that we three have noticed down here in sw MO.
is the lack of sparrows: white-throats, white crowned,
and songs, for example.
Good birding, Larry
