Savannah Sparrow and Eastern Meadowlark

I returned to the site of the Upland Sandpipers tonight, this time with my 500mm lens.  The sandpipers were present, but not in the numbers I saw on Monday.  Alas, they were not as photographically cooperative either.  I was only able to get a few shots of adults sneaking through the grass.  Not once did they pose for me on a fence post (how dare they!).  What a difference a few days makes!

The trip was still enjoyable.  I got some images of a Savannah Sparrow and Eastern Meadowlark and saw a milk snake and lots of rabbits and fireflies.  It's nice to have seemingly wild spots so close to home.
