Little Beauties easily missed

Have you ever driven down a country road or dirt road and seen little birds flitting about and assumed they may be sparrows. They are small and if you don't stop and take a close look they appear plain dull light brown. These little birds are a testimonial to the importance of stopping to smell the roses or some of the really beautiful things in life will pass us by. I am talking about the small but beautiful Horned Lark. I took a ride out to Bear River Bird Refuge Yesterday and these little guys were everywhere. Not a lot of diversity out there yesterday, in addition to the Horned Larks, a few Harriers, about a thousand Tundra Swans, Canada Geese, a female American Kestrel and one little skunk.
