Re: Probable Dairyland Dickcissel

Wednesday afternoon I was out at Anilorac(on Dairyland
Rd.) with Marsha Stephens and we saw the bobolinks,
grasshopper sparrows, warbling vireos, orchard
orioles, indigo bunting, blue grosbeak, yellow
warbler, green heron, kingbird but no dickcissel.
Hope the little male shows if she is there! Not much
luck of finding another male 'round here. Was she in
the grasses or on the phone line?
