We didn’t do anything special here this year. I cut some of the woody shrubs and small trees that are popping up in the middle of the prairie, but that’s all the maintenance we did.
Again we had several (we think 2) nests of Henslow’s Sparrows, and numerous Clay-colored Sparrows nesting here this year.
