Jumpin’ Larks

Horned Lark, Rensselaer County, New York

Part of winter birding in Upstate New York, often involves driving around farm fields looking for raptors and other winter birds.  One bird that is found commonly is Horned Lark.  Danika and I found a group of Horned Larks in rural Rensselaer County and they entertained us, by frequently jumping up to knock seeds off weeds that were sticking out of the snow.  Good Birding!
