And if you are in south St Louis city looking at the whistling duck, you may want to stop by Concordia Cemetery on Bates to see a white winged dove. 

 

It was in a nearly dead tree at the far eastern side, unobstructed by leaves, at 4:30pm.  Enter at the main gate and turn right at the second road.  Take that road all the way to the locked gate on the cemetery’s eastern side.  The tree is on the right next to the road.

 

Have fun birding the south!

Black bellied is still there as of 1:00 pm.  So are the swallows!

Continuing in a large puddle within 5 feet of the River Des Peres Greenway at Gravois at the edge of New St Marcus Cemetery.  I saw it at 10am this morning.  Probably easiest to go into the cemetery or to park in the Walgreens lot and walk across the bridge.  Bonus:  if you park at Walgreens you’ll get to see 100+ cliff swallows gathering mud for their nests.

Now perched on a stick in the River Des Peres. Seen from the Walgreens parking lot at Gravois and the river.
