Yesterday was a full day, almost like a bird race. It finished with owling till near midnight but we drew a blank. From 4am it had been us out on the Prairie. Lots of flooding on the way there, but you could just imagine the Bison wandering over it in days gone by. Saw our first bee, which wackily looked like an oversized British Great Yellow bumblebee.
Birding was for practice of a few targeted species. Sprague’s Pipit, Chestnut-collared Longspur, Vesper and Grasshopper Sparrow, Upland Sandpiper and Horned Lark. We scored all as well as both Bluebirds (azure heaven), Eastern Kingbird and a good selection of others.
