Went to Bells Bend this Wednesday morning looking for pipits
horned larks at the main sod farm fields near where the road
dead ends at the Cumberland River. Finding few birds I slowly
drove back toward Bells Bend Park and stopped several hundred
yards past the sod farm buildings and just past the first
two houses on the east (right side). A gray barn and another
gray building are nearby across the road. I saw a number of
sparrows cross the road and stayed to search through them. A
sparrow with a black bib popped up in some bushes that was
loosely associated with a mixed flock of sparrows. It was
reasonably cooperative for photos.

After I got the word out several birders arrived, and we
initially had trouble refinding it. After I left, Phillip
Casteel reported that he and 3 other birders had refound it
farther up the road toward Bells Bend Park.

A very nice early Christmas present.
