The group stopped at a grassy field on the way to Bend Road to find some sparrows. The only ones found were some Savannah Sparrows and a few Meadowlarks. Also seen in the distance were some gulls, an American Kestrel, Northern Harrier and a Red-tailed Hawk.
Here's "mysterious figure" Bill Rudden and I shootin' each other.
