Location:     Little Chicago Road, Ferrisburg
Observation  date:     1/1/10
Notes:     Snow Buntings,  Horned Larks, Lapland Longspurs and 
Sharp-shinned Hawk observed at farm just  past the "T" intersection with Walker Road 
coming from Ferrisburg. Numbers are  probably under counts by about 25%! 
Sharp-shinned Hawk was on snow fence post  keeping watch on the rather skitish 
assembled flocks of birds. A source of food  along the plowed and exposed edge 
of the road seemed attractive to the buntings  and longspurs.
