Craig Hensley was very kind and opened the gate to Martha Lafite at 6:45 for 
us to look for the Swainson's, but alas it was only heard not seen. It 
called from about 7:30 to about 8:00 near the bluebird house under the power 
lines then was quiet or moved to the pond. Then at 8:45 it was heard again 
near the bluebird house. The first time we heard it call, it was in the 
small triangle of prairie just up  the hill from the Rush Creek observation 
deck. Warning: even though I used Skin So soft and bug spray, I still have 
about 10 chigger bites on each foot and around my ankles!!!

Happy birding,
