Mark Robbin, the coordinator for Four Rivers CBC, just added another highlight of 14 Dec 2016 count. 

The 7 species of owl is almost certainly a first for a CBC in Missouri: barn owl, Eastern screech-owl, great horned owl, barred owl, long-eared owl, short-eared owl, and northern saw-whet owl.

Good morning,


     We ended up with a record high species count, not only for 4 Rivers CBC, but an all time high count for Missouri!  An astounding 112 species!


      Highlights included, first count records for Am. Woodcock & Bonaparte’s Gull.  2nd records for Great Egret, Inca Dove, and N. Saw-whet Owl.  3rd for Eastern Phoebe & Sedge Wren.


      Of course, the dearth of Red-headed Woodpeckers was quite noteworthy.


     Congratulations and thanks to everyone for making this a highly successful count! 


Happy Holidays,


Mark Robbins 

4-Rivers CBC coordinator
