Stringtown Bridge is a great place to bird--an eBird Hotspot in Cole Co.  It's not huge, but has some very birdy habitat and is just outside Jefferson City (to the south).  If you go, don't limit your birding to the parking lot.  There is a trail to traipse along.

Yellow-throated warbler present this morning at Moreau Creek Bridge that is 0.2 miles from the Stringtown Bridge Access off of Route C in Cole County. Thanks Pete for alerting us of this location.

Yellow-throated Warblers appear to have nested at Stringtown Bridge Access off of Route C in Cole County for as as many springs as I've checked there (2017-19). Yesterday afternoon, one of them was singing loudly; I could hear the song from the parking lot and then walked northwest, where I found him picking insects from a branch. (Prothonotary Warblers also nest in this area, so I'll be back to look for them in mid-April.)

In addition, it was fun to watch a Red-shouldered Hawk chase off a Red-tailed Hawk; the RSHA's territory seems to be on the north side of North Moreau Creek.

Good birding everyone,
