I found some American Pipits and some Smith's Longspurs in a field at Pershing State Park this morning. There were also Horned Larks, Savannah Sparrows, and Eastern Meadowlarks in same field. It had been burned late last Fall, so was still pretty bare of vegetation except for some tall dry weed stalks. Saw and heard Eastern Towhee, Field, Song, White-crowned, and Fox Sparrows in brushy edges. It sounds like it's going to be hard to keep up with all the new arrivals in next few weeks!
