Hunting for Dickcissels

Word had it that Dickcissels had been seen in Mounds View.  I grabbed the camera and made it to an empty field at the NW corner of at 694 and 35-W.  I not only found Dickcissels but also Savannah Sparrow and 36 other species.  Great morning!!


One more bird from Sunday…. the Dickcissel is a beautiful bird commonly found in fallow fields or tallgrass prairies. The breeding male is colored like a tiny meadowlark, with a black "V" on a yellow chest.
