Greene County--numerous backroad sites in the western portion

I spent about an hour and a half this morning and about the same amount of time 
this afternoon checking fields and farm ponds along Highway 348, Highway 340, 
and nearby areas.  Birding was slow, but I found the following:

American Black Duck (on Highway 348 approximately 0.3 mile west of Bible's 
Chapel Road; probably the same bird I reported seeing at this site on August 
18; I believe it is unable to fly and that it is the same bird I observed here 
very late into the spring);

Blue-winged Teal (4, intersection Smelser Road / Toby Road);

Northern Harrier (3);

American Kestrel (11);

Killdeer (76);

Horned Lark (13--8 on Baughard Hill Road, 5 on Highway 340 approximately 0.5 
mile east of the Max Lamar Cooper Bridge);

American Pipit (25 on Highway 340 approximately 0.5 mile east of the Max Lamar 
Cooper Bridge);

Palm Warbler (3, including one "yellow" form);

Savannah Sparrow;

White-crowned Sparrow (4).
