Cute little secretive bird that hides in the grass. I found them at Nachusa Grasslands, a Nature Conservancy property, amongst some mid-height grass. If I had not heard the chattering I would never have seen this bird.

I rate Positive most birds for just coming into our yard and pasture. I find them to be very special in that regard.

This year was our first to be able to claim them as a yard bird. Probably due to our not yet mowed for the season pasture. What a treasure it's been this year! This morning, I counted three males singing.

Their song is much like a sewing machine starting up, but then after a few stitches, he stops. Is our little "tailor" just learning to sew? :)
