This bird at Prairie Green/Geneva was messing with me today.
The sparrow were all concentrated along an old fenceline that runs east/west along the southernmost entrance to teh fields. You can park in the Chapel Church parking lot just north of Keslinger (west of Randall road from Geneva/Kane County) on Peck Road. Then walk in the S curve and follow the fenceline all the way to the open fields and the now-dry wetland. The birds were all along this fenceline but did not get active until 8:45 a.m. Temps were in the mid-60s, clear and warming quickly. This should be a good sparrow hedge the next two weeks at least.
