Saturday morning I followed up on a tip I received from another birder about the habitat on the s.e. side of Lost Lake. I found the area enchanting, in spite of the 100 yards of wind-fallen timber that you have to traverse after jumping a guardrail along a somewhat dicy section of highway.
The most notably-persistent species was LINCOLN'S SPARROW. I was able to photograph at least 7 individuals, many uncharacteristically perched-up in full view. An unusual sighting (for us) of a normally solitary species.
