Vesper Sparrow 2-20110614

The weather in NE Illinois has turned cool after several very hot days, allowing us to sleep with open windows. This morning I heard both the Horned Larks and at least one Vesper Sparrow singing in the field in front of our condo, then saw both along the road as I drove out. Because of necessary chores, I could not get out to find them again until this afternoon. The sparrow was just a lucky appearance, as I had parked the car next to a rock where I last saw the Horned Lark. The lark then showed up on the same post that had served the sparrow this morning!
