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.
