hear and see a lifer Upland Sandpiper (thank you to Peter Fissel for suggesting the location). Also present were Bobolink (one territorial male sang bravely only 15 feet away from me), Dickcissel, Grasshopper Sparrow, Eastern Meadowlark and other more common prairie birds. The Nature Conservancy doesn't seem to regulate any walking trails through the prairie, but walking doesn't seem to be prohibited, (I wonder if anyone knows more about this?) I walked very carefully to avoid stepping on any bird's nests. Afterward, I decided to take advantage of Blue Mounds State Parks' being so close by, and there I saw and heard the following birds (abbreviated): Red-eyed Vireo, American Redstart, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Eastern Bluebird, Scarlet Tanager, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Turkey Vulture, and Wood Thrush. I also heard a distant cuckoo (Yellow-billed, I believe).
