Thanks for the great longspur tip! My wife and I ran over to Hard Hill Rd this evening and located the bird amongst a large flock of horned lark at around 5:40pm. We also had an Eastern Meadowlark on the corner of Benton Rd and Anderson rd. The bird was foraging in the bare patches of a plowed parking lot near a large red barn.
