Awesome, a Horned Lark! I'm still trying to find one myself. Any tips on where to look? I heard they prefer open fields along forest edges, or something of that sort.

I find them in the dunes behind our Texas coastal beaches, along with a few rattlesnakes, unfortunately.

Yikes... the worst we have here is poison ivy and wood tick infestation. Nope to rattle snakes.

I’ve had best luck near farm fields, a lot of time near ditches or roadways. Similar to Snow Buntings.

New Zealand Falcon. I would never have seen this bird if my wife hadn't spotted it flying. As soon as it landed in the tree it melted from sight.
