I keep wondering why I do this route every year.... more development, more traffic, more noise every year. I feel like I am counting only House Sparrows, starlings, and doves! And then I get to the second half of the route, stops at woods, brushy fields, lakes.
Had 2 Horned Larks. Same stop. That is new. Had an Osprey over Pallantine Lake - that seems new also. I seem to be recalling an Osprey there before though. Maybe a previous dragonfly trip.... that place was loaded! But on I went. Indigo Buntings and Blue Grosbeaks seemed like an increase.
I was hoping for a Dickcissel! Still some likely habitat. No such luck. No Raven either.
