IMG_4789 Lark Sparrow, IN

Originally, I had planned on adding OH to my list of states Iv'e birded in order to add the Lark Sparrows.. but I decided to forgo the 4 1/2 to Toledo from IL and go to a place in IN. I arrived at the coordinates at 6:30am or so and it wasn't until a little after 9 that one flew right in front of me and perched in the barbed wire. It then flew up the road and I followed and watched it feed on the ground.
