NotesDay began clear and sunny, with slight breeze and unseasonably warm. High, thin clouds moved in from northwest during conduct of the survey in advance of front forecast to bring drop in temperatures to normal levels and heavy snow on following day. DeSoto NWR and Missouri River hold lots of eagles, otherwise birds seemed few and far between. Extensive row crop fields all harvested and many plowed eliminating cover for prey species.
