You'd have got Dr Eliot Miller's bird list; here's my more mundane, layperson's-view of the short time I spent birding, which was still very rewarding:
I didn't know that I was meeting such an eminent St.Louisan. My mammal sightings are even more interesting than my bird sightings, it appears!
The weather is so beautiful now that I grudge the time I have to spend indoors!
I do hope Dr Mark Mittleman got to see the Great Horned Owls... I did run into Brenda Hente on my way out of the park, and she can certainly spot them no matter how thick the foliage they are sitting in!
