I am very new to birding, so I am not sure that I can give you good information about what kinds of birds there are around here. However I did grow up in Kansas City, so I can recommend a couple of places that you might be interested in looking into that are right off of I-70.

We really enjoy hiking at Woodridge Park at Clinton Lake. There is a 4.5 mile loop that is somewhat out of the way, and lower traffic means that we see lots of birds. Links below.

The Burr Oak Woods nature center has trails and an indoor bird viewing area. They have a list of the birds that you can find there on their website. They very close to I-70 in the Blue Springs area.

I hope this is helpful.
