Location: Spring Green Preserve State Natral Area
Sauk County

Was hot and dry, there were 2 singing Grasshopper Sparrows at the first turn in the trail after the information kiosk. One was nice enough to sing from the dead branches of a bush. Also saw a Lark Sparrow in the oaks just east of where the Grasshopper Sparrows were signing.
