we successfully located (3) Upland Sandpipers (including a pair of dueling
males), a Grasshopper Sparrow, a lot of Meadowlarks & a Kestrel.

She had scoped the golf course end of the runway before I arrived and had
no Uppies but atleast (5) Eastern Meadowlarks.

infield near the large #9 runway markers, and one teed-up on the orange
wind-sock for several minutes.

Additional Meadowlarks and the Kestrel were also viewed fom this location.
We drove around to Gate-7 off of McIntyre Road and walked East (to the

unit inside the fence. As we approached the 1-story wooden shed a
cooperative Grasshopper Sparrow was teed-up on a log and constantly
singing. He even flew to the fence and gave us a prolonged and detailed
