After looking for the elusive Smith's Longspur without any success I decided to walk east on the dye path. I wanted to check a freshly ploughed corn field that I thought might attract the small flock of Longspurs that had been near 96th Ave. As much as I wished no such miracle of miracles prevailed.
However I did find many Common Yellowthroat, Yellow-rumped Warblers, a Song sparrow, one Lincoln Sparrow and numerous Barn Swallows.
