Via the grapevine (SW MO birder to a S. IL birder then to me)
Just an FYI
12 AMERICAN AVOCETS at Branson, Table Rock Lake I assume (?) seen on 9/29/13
"Near the playground at the park"

Robbins and Easterla say the larger numbers come through in Oct.,
so a tad early.  In the east both IL and MO had sightings of more than 5
birds per group this last weekend. (RMBS -7, Carlyle Lake- 24)

Outta' here, chow kidz.........zombies are calling.

Have a good fall birding,
