Bird #108 — Horned Lark

eremophila (desert-loving) alpestris (of the Alps)

Saturday, March 8, 1980 — 3:00 pm

Barrington, Illinois — Crabtree Nature Center

My wife and I spotted a Horned Lark foraging on the entrance road, but as we approached, it flew into the plowed field next to the road, singing as it flew.  We followed it out into the field, hoping to get a better view, but before we got very far, a park ranger showed up and chased us back to the road.  They have rules against going off the paths.

We strolled up and down the road looking for more.  A flock of 15 or so flew over a while later, but we saw no more on the ground.
