|Snow Bunting / Horned Lark location|
These were soon joined by a few more small 'ground running' birds that turned out to be Horned Larks. We counted about a dozen. The other bird of note was a large Rough-legged Hawk patrolling near the Armed Forces choppers. It was not a great day weather/light-wise and we didn't get our owl, but we both got a pretty big kick out of prolonged views of birds we don't have much experience with.
One of these days I'll get a proper picture editing program and learn how to edit pics properly.
