[wisb] Grasshopper Sparrows - Bayfield County

On Sunday my dad and I found 2 GRASSHOPPER SPARROWS in the Benoit area 
grasslands of Bayfield County.  Not noteworthy for most of you but these were 
my first in the county and the first documented in the Chequamegon Bay area in 
several decades.  A few documentation images digicoped at 60x can be found at

Also noteworthy in the grasslands were 24 singing male DICKCISSELS and good 
numbers of both EASTERN and WESTERN MEADOWLARKS.  Unfortunately most of the hay 
fields hosting these birds have been or are being cut.  This continues to be 
one of the biggest threats to grassland birds here in far northern Wisconsin.
