I returned to Marl Bed Flats this morning hoping to photograph the Le Conte’s Sparrow I saw yesterday. I saw one again with the birding group that was there, but alas, no photos. I pretty much only saw it when flew from one clump of grass to another. I did, however, get to photograph abeautifulGrasshopper Sparrow and Savannah Sparrow. Other highlights were a Barred Owl, Northern Harrier, American Kestrel, several Wilson’s Snipes and both Yellowlegs.
