Surprises at the Sod Farm

A trip to the Allentown Sod Farms brought some surprises to kick off the weekend.

A “lifer” Buff-Breasted Sandpiper was pecking around in the mud along with 15 Pectoral Sandpipers. (Unfortunately no American Golden Plover.)

The big surprise of the day – 15 Horned Larks which drew our attention in the first place. We had amazing looks at these birds as they frolicked in the fields and gravel road.

2 Kestrel also put on a show as they flew low/sat in the fields.

Remember: if you visit the sod farms, please be respectful that these are active private businesses. A wave and a smile and simple hello can go a long way as well.

Panoramic view: The terrain of the Sod farms should not be overlooked for fall birding.
