          In winter there are thousands of diving ducks on Mississippi River Pool 19 at Montrose in Lee Co., often better viewed from Nauvoo, Illinois. Here are three maps to help you scope these ducks and gull (plus supplementary notes). The Montrose detail map shows X-28 just downriver from town, and includes remarks on that tricky viewing spot. It also shows the all-important Casey's General Store.
          There are maps for birding Lock & Dam 14 (Davenport) and 15 (Le Claire, plus Canal Shore Dr.), which frequently are mentioned on IA-BIRD postings.
          And there is a map for the fall Tundra Swans at Pool 9 in Allamakee Co.
