Return to Frenchmans Creek Wildlife Area

October 7, 2010

Richard Stevens:

Bryan Ehlmann, Jerry Petrosky, and I went back to Frenchman Creek Wildlife Area. We again missed the Le Conte's & Nelson's Sparrows. We did find a White-throated Sparrow.

We drove around southern Phillips County searching unsuccessfully for Sprague's Pipits and migrating uncommon sparrows.

Later we returned one more time to Frenchman Creek Wildlife Area. This time, Bryan spotted the Nelson's Sparrow! Strange, it was the windiest time of our search. The sparrow probably did not want to move and expose itself to the 10+ mph winds. Bryan almost stepped on it.
