No mudflats; few waders, no shorebirds other than Killdeer.

The Missouri River at 1:30 p.m. was about 1 foot below the handicap river parking lot--the one by the underground pumps.

Immediately upriver of the lot, alongside the road leading there, water is running from the River to the blue hole bounded by the main road and the river lot road.

Perche Creek is up and out.  It has not covered the Rt. K/Burr Oak Rd. bridge.  I is very close to the levee/road through the Sapp tract (pools 15 & 14), and at a couple points as of 2:30 was less than 2 ft. below that road level.

Birders should use extreme caution and recall that the Sapp tract is a low-lying peninsula between the Missouri River and the mouth of Perche Creek.

Additionally, Scott Blvd. has water running over it from the Hinkson overflow at the MKT trail just north of Vawter School Rd.
