Smells Like Horned Larks

Whipple Bird Club member Steve McCarthy called my cellophone yesterday with the breaking news that a flock of horned larks were on Stanleyville Road a few miles from our farm. He said "You can find 'em by looking for them, or you can roll down the window and smell them. They're on a the only freshly manured field on the road!"

Sure enough, I found the larks this noon, right where Steve had sniffed them out.

Just goes to show you that bird watchers should use ALL of their senses when in the field.

Thanks Stevo! You rock!
