Northern Harrier and Horned Larks in Woodford County

The light was shining on the red barn by the Woodford SFWA.

This male Northern Harrier was flying low over the grassland along Route 26 in Woodford County.

I spotted him as we were driving North and found a pull over and waited for him to fly past.

Four or five of these little guys were in the cornfields on the way into Woodford State Fish and Wildlife Area. I thought they were Lapland Longspurs, but it turns out that they are Horned Larks, but just not very good poses to see the marks I was looking for. Thanks, Jim, for helping with this ID!
