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.
