Note: Data does not include all transient observations for this species in eastern MO, where the status was recently moved to rare transient and therefore documentation is no longer required. Any significant transient observations for eastern MO will be added at a later time. In addition, any significant spring transient observations for western MO, where this species is an annually occurring spring transient, will be added at a later time. All accepted fall records at time of R & E are listed.
