Jealous or recent skydance reports but too lazy to drive up to the airport, I 
decided to try closer to home and walked to the big fields south and east of 
the hawthorn orchards. A small flock of American tree sparrows were the only 
noteworthy sightings as I waited in the twilight. At 8pm when it got dark I 
decided to give up and started walking home, but along the recway approaching 
Honness I heard a loud "peent!" I scrambled back to the field and heard a good 
5 minutes of close loud peents, interrupted only when fly-by squawking geese 
seemed to cause all noisemakers - in particular the peepers - to take a break. 
A few peents later, silence. No sky dance. No action.

I may have to check out this spot more regularly.
