On the way home from work I stopped at what is generally a productive spot and picked up four more birds.

34. Turkey Vulture
35. White-throated Sparrow
36. Cedar Waxwing
37. Belted Kingfisher

Then at my feeder at home I got a final new bird for the day.

38. House Finch

A steady drizzle with intermittent downpours limited my birding this morning. I only managed six new birds for the year. (I was hoping for at least 15).

39. American Black Duck
40. Ruddy Duck
41. Northern Flicker
42. Yellow-rumped Warbler
43. Pileated Woodpecker
44. American Tree Sparrow

An odd year so far. Seen more little bustards and Blyth's pipits than goldfinches and greenfinches. Waiting for a members lists 2015 forum to post full details.

Heavy snow today kept me at home, watching my feeders. Despite many birds of numerous species coming to the feeders, there was only one new bird today.

57. Cooper's Hawk

The hawk had caught a bird at the feeders, and it was eating its kill on the ground just inside the woods behind the house.

My 48th "year bird" in Missouri, was also a "lifer": IVORY GULL. I viewed it yesterday (along with a group of some 30 birders). The arctic visitor was found sitting on the ice on the Missouri side of the Mississippi River at Quincy, Illinois.

So far, this year sucks - been stuck indoors for 5 days now with a real belter of a cold.... so 35 species only. Glad this didn't happen last year!

Ivory Gull - Larry that's really rubbing salt in the wounds.....

Adding Grey Phalarope and Common Guillemot on 5th and Black-necked Grebe, Spotted Redshank, Reed Bunting, Song Thrush ( The last two are really embarrassing. I should have had them New Years Day ) and Common Raven, today, takes me up to 169.

Ivory Gull is a cracking bird Larry. Was it a pristine adult ....... or one of those 'grubby' 1st winters?
