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!
