I finally had a chance to pop up to the Kasota Prairie for the pair of Loggerhead Shrikes that are possibly nesting in the area. These birds were first located by Kim Eckert's group back in May. This area is south of Kasota in Le Sueur County. Take CR21 south from Kasota and then go west on 486th Avenue. The birds are often seen along the north/south fence line in the middle of the pasture on the south side of the road.
Other good birds in the area include Grasshopper Sparrow, Dickcissel, Bobolink, Field Sparrow, Clay-colored Sparrow, Eastern Bluebird, and both meadowlarks. There's often a pair of Upland Sandpipers in the area too. You can also find Lark Sparrows in this area by going further south on CR21 and then east on 470th Street. Just check the sides of the road in the quarry.
"But ask the animals and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?" --Job 12:7, 9
