You can see off to the right of the 2nd photo why there are so many birds in just this one field. From today St. John's County FL.

Looks like you are in Michigan so I'm going to go out on limb and say you probably miss the weather here too. I understand Michigan can get pretty cold.

Freshly mowed or plowed fields in any State can be good especially during migration seasons. Just a couple of examples I once stopped counting at 40 Swainson's Hawks all on the ground in a freshly plowed field in NE Colorado. My guess is there were at least 100. They were gorging themselves on grasshoppers. Fattening up for the long flight to their wintering grounds. 

Also I got my best looks at Mountain Plover in a freshly plowed field in Colorado.

Yeah, you can find lots of goodies in the agricultural fields here! Just waiting for a huge flock of Snow Buntings to swirl in during some snowstorm this winter. :classic_rolleyes:

That would be awesome. I have only seen one in Colorado. One of my favorite times to bird is right after a snow 2 inches or so in say May. Brings all sorts of birds to the edges of the road where they are easier to see.

It can and actually I'll take cold over hot any day. My husband wanted to escape the cold in Colorado. I went along with the move because my son lives here.

That’s kind of wishful thinking on the buntings (mostly in the northern half of my state), but yeah, there’s lots of other good stuff too!
