I have to say that I'm having a heck of a time here in Oklahoma. Yesterday, at least three vehicles got stuck in muddy roads during field trips (no worries, vehicles were saved and participants still got to see some great birds). But you know it's a great adventerous festival with gorgeous wild places with a tag line like that.
Besides the prairie chickens, we're gettins some great sparrows, like this white-crowned sparrow above. I'll have more photos to post, but I've got one more field trip to do.
