[birdky] Lark Sparrows: McDonald Landing Road, Henderson Co.

I thought I would walk McDonald Landing Road and give the Lark Sparrows another chance. Success! 3 Lark Sparrows on the power lines, then flying into the fence rows.


When I got there, at 7AM the road was filled for 1/2 mile with active feeding Robins: I estimate 60. Later, when the air was heating up, at 8:30, and the sun beating down, they were few and far between.
