I have been checking the Sod Farm at Deal Rd. and Troy Mills Road for several weeks now as this has been a prime spot for UPLAND SANDPIPER in past years. Today while scoping from Troy Mills Rd at he rapidly disappearing sod on the far Northwest corner of the Sod Farm, two birds flew almost over my car and made their diagnostic flight call. I watched where they landed and confirmed the identity with the scope. It would be wise to look soon if interested as the amount of remaining sod is fast disappearing. I figure that in another week, the sod will be gone and the whole area reseeded to grass and cover. a scope is a must as the remaining sod is a very long way from the road.
