[birdky] Re: Dickcissels & Kestrels

Steve,

As you know there has been approximately 100,000 acres enrolled in the CREP in 
the Upper Green River area in the last few years. Much of that land went into 
native grass / forb plantings. It is highly likely the numbers of Dickcissels, 
Blue Grosbeaks, Bobwhites, Grasshopper Sparrows, Chats, Indigo buntings, Common 
Yellowthroats, etc. etc. we're noting these days are tied to that level of 
habitat improvements in the area.

I've been meaning for a while to add my 2 cents worth on dickcissels. I have
always considered Hart County to be getting close to the eastern edge of
their range, with 3 or 4 sightings here in a good year. This year there are
hundreds. The population has exploded. Right now I'm curious to see if this
is a permanent change or just a very odd year.
Blue grosbeak numbers have risen dramatically the past few years, as well.
There have been quite a few fields planted in native forbs and grasses
recently. Is there a connection?
