Today I was really surprised when I flushed a LEAST BITTERN (2nd latest) along Hawkeye's western exit road. I was walking a prairie for sparrows but soon was in water deep enough to stop me. At that point the bird quietly lifted off.
Also today, I encountered another BREWER'S BLACKBIRD, a lone female in flooded corn stubble, along Cemetery Rd.
