Having been unable to attend CBC field trip Sat morn, I was able to drive around N Lansing/S Cay. County looking for larks & buntings etc. late afternoon Sat. Mostly struck out, seeing only a couple RT Hawks, a few CA Geese & 1 MODO! (& a few chickens). At dusk I ended up well east of Aurora so decided to drive west on rural roads & try Long Pt St Pk Rd by winery.
After ~10 min. wait down hill 100' from farm house I was rewarded with a nice flyover of a Short Eared Owl! It swooped around in front of me then flew SE out of sight. Only one I saw.
