Hello Bird People,

Continuing my resident bird surveys today I went to Deer Grove East.
If you were bored by yesterday's survey at Paul Douglas you'll
probably be bored again as nothing special was seen.
But that's the nature of resident bird surveys as you get common
resident birds.
Read on if interested.

Deer Grove East (7:30-10:30 a.m.)

As I was leaving Carolyn F was arriving. Too bad she wasn't there
earlier as then I might have been able to find a Grasshopper Sparrow
as I can't hear them on my own. Ebird reports show they are here but I
failed to find one today. Ditto the Henslow's Sparrow although those I
can hear.
