. No owls at Owl Woods, as the migration is over. However, another bird of interest was in the tall grass around the entrance to the Woods.
. This is a robin sized bird that is a grassland inhabitant. It is listed as common, but its numbers are decreasing.
. Apart from this location at Owl Woods, I know of no other location near the Lake Ontario shore in the Rochester area that routinely has meadowlarks.
. Its song transports me back to my boyhood days in Southern New Jersey where meadowlarks were well represented in the bird chorus.
