Did the Little Chicago, Sand Road loop again today. Found a large mixed flock of redpolls-about 150–and snow buntings—about 75—swirling around in a field west of Sand Road just before Grosse Point Rd. Then found a flock of at least 500 snow buntings on the east side of Hawkins Road. Throw in at least 50 horned larks and 10 longspurs on Walker Rd, a song sparrow, rough legged hawk, lots of tree sparrows, bluebirds, and juncos and it all made for a fun winter outing.
