...have you seen or photograped any horned larks yet? Think I've been encountering them along the road on trips home to feed the bottle lamb the past couple days. Hard to see details while driving but it sure looks like they could be horned larks.

I've seen a lot of horned larks in south central and west central Minnesota the past 3 weeks.

lol! Now that's about as aptly as they can be described. Wildlife pond filled with snow runoff the past two days and now this morning, a couple Canada geese already paddling around the skim ice on its surface. Spring is on the way...maybe.

I found a ton of them in January that were not so skittish. They were scavenging from a corn spill and paid little attention to me. Unfortunately, it was during a snow storm. It would be tempting to 'spill' a little corn on the side of a quiet road.
