This morning I heard a Henslow's Sparrow energetically singing in the fields on John Fox Road in Monongalia County. This is the first observation for this location since 2014 according to eBird. Along with the Henslow's were several Grasshopper Sparrows, Bobolinks, and meadowlarks.
Earlier in the morning I walked the road at the nearby Little Indian Creek WMA. Highlights were a singing male Blue Grosbeak, Wilson's Warbler, Alder Flycatcher, and both cuckoos amidst tons of Prairie Warblers, chats, and Blue-winged Warblers.
