Michael Evans and I traveled to Jackson County to see if the horned larks
were still present. We checked both the North American Farms fields and the
original site further down Concord Road without success. There continued to be
numerous American pipits and killdeer in the NAF fields. Although very few
eastern meadowlarks were in evidence, robins were everywhere.
Along Concord Road there continue to be a great many sparrows. We had white
crowned, white throated, fox, chipping, song, savannah, and vesper. Palm
warblers, kestrel, northern harrier, red-shouldered and red-tailed hawks were
On one of the side roads, we had a nice mixed flock of chickadees,
golden-crowned and ruby-crowned kinglet, blue-headed vireo, and pine, orange-crowned,
and yellow-rumped warblers.
We stopped at Three Rivers State Park on the return trip to check for ducks.
Except for coots, we could not see any waterfowl on the lake.
