They are certainly common here in MN! You see them all the time along the sides of the road around our neighborhood, in the fields and grassy areas. When I am out walking the dog they often fly up and startle us; and sometimes they will do the same when we are driving, coming dangerously close to the front of the car! They are beautiful.
