6/18 SE Missouri Trip Part 3

East Prairie Missouri • Big Oak Tree State Park
We stopped on the way to Big Oak Tree State Park in East Prairie and had success finding the White-winged Dove and some Eurasian Collared-Doves. The White-winged Dove is my 286th bird photographed in Missouri. See gallery here.

At Big Oak Tree we went out to were we heard the "Swainson's Warbler" the day before and had no response to the call. I walked the boardwalk with my new All Weather Tripod Shoes on my tripod legs which worked very good, the legs did not go through the big holes in the metal grading of the boardwalk.

A few of the birds seen, complete set and larger sizes in gallery. Click here to view the gallery.
