Indiana Road – Black Dirt Region – Orange County 12/18/11

Merlin - Indiana Road 11/18/11

Today, Arlene Borko and I birded Indiana Road in Orange County after recieving a call from Rob Stone that he had a few Lapland Longspurs among many Horned Lark there this morning. When we arrived, we found at least 300 Horned Lark dust batheing right in the road. Extensive scanning of the flock failed to produce any other birds. They soon flushed and joined others in the fields. During the search , we found three Snow Buntings. A light phase Rough-legged Hawk and a Merlin passing kept things moving. It is a vast area, and with that many birds, the Longspurs must be in the area somewhere. I will try again in a couple of days. It was a great morning even without the Longspurs.
