At least one Sedge Wren has arrived to set up late summer territory in usual area.
Chinook Mine Northeast (Clay Co.), Clay, Indiana, US
Jul 24, 2017 11:15 AM - 11:30 AM
Comments: Checked along CR550W for Sedge Wrens. Temp 78 F, clear, north wind 5 to 10 mph; rain yesterday.
Turkey Vulture 10 7 sitting on gravel road of 600N, in a spot where I have found them apparently resting before
Sedge Wren 1 singing (unseen) in the tallgrass prairie vegetation (big bluestem etc) at junction of 550W, 600N, east side of road - a traditional spot. This was my first check this season within a normal time frame for the species. A small population usually calls territorially through August, presumably nesting; and some linger until Oct.
